How would this stuff look on a aftermarket steel bumper? Or even skids?

Get it over with, plastidip the whole jeep! I saw a pic of someone who did this recently but can't find it now :9

Many people Plastidip the hinges, fenders and wheels for cosmetics/trail rash protection. A little Google searching and you can find writeups of people Plastidipping their JK front emblem and hinges. The JK hinges take a beating in the 4 door so its a popular thing to do.

It's amazing, I have been using Plasti Dip for many years but never really thought twice about it...now they get more publicity than a sponsor....good product but give me a break...

Keep the plastidip in mind if you wheel a lot and the black paint gets chipped on them hinges. Jeep uses a light grey primer underneath

I like the look of the "trail Rated" badge done with plastidip.
