Fender Flares

Any recommendations for cleaning and protecting the black fender flares on a Wrangler? I had a '92 and the sun exposure turned them gray... I'd like to keep my '12 BLACK!

Should it go to the JK section? YJ's don't protect their flares ..

However, Mother's Back to Black works well and so does several other products like chemical guys trim dressing.

I used turtle wax F21 spray. it comes in a BRIGHT green bottle, almost gecko green LOL... anyways, i used it on my older JK that had black flares and it worked super well. Made them look brand new and it lasted for awhile even in heavy rain, etc...

Jeep-less again

Buy aluminum aftermarket fenders, painted, powdercoated or plain.

Armor All gets a bad rap and rightfully so if used on weatherstripping. However, I've been using it on the fenders on our 2008 and they still look new ... obviously anything with UV protection that won't bleed over to your paint or dry and evaporate too readily.

Haha, I had the painted ones on my Sahara. Someone dinged the driver's side front flare and left a nick out of it... opportunity upgrade! Only downside is the 35's look terribly small now... OPPORTUNITY UPGRADE!!!

Woops, thanks for pointing this out. I mistakenly thought we were talking about a YJ.

But back to the op. I don't personally like the stock fenders but when I had them 303 is what worked for me.
