X/Rubicon Fender Flare question

How do the new fender flares clean up on the X and Rubicon? I know my 99 TJs flares faded quite a bit. What are you guys using to clean them? Armor All? Other product?

How do these fender flares stand up to any rocks that may fly up? I know they must be better than the sahara since they are not painted and shouldnt chip...

Thanks

That's a really good question and I am interested in the answer myself. I'm waiting for my X to come in.

My guess is the rocks will bounce off the X fender flares like bullets off superman's chest, without damaging the fenders at all (whereas on the Sahara, they will be scratched up beyond all comprehension).

When I had my 95 Wrangler, I used to use Mother's Back to Black and it worked great. I am not sure about these new models, as back then, it was a piece of flimsy black plastic attached to a regular painted fender.

Mother's Back to Black is perfect for keeping the flares staying black.

Most likely, you wont get chips or divets, in the new platic. But if you do run into a rock you can get some deep scratches... But thats the same with any car. I noticed, that my liberty has pretty much the same plastic trim, and am pleased to say its very durable, and easy to keep clean. I use armor all and it looks good as new.
