    Stock black fender flares vs stock painted fender flares

    1) What are all of the differences between stock panted and black unpainted flares?
    2) Can the same liners, supports, hardware be used for both types?
    3) Are the exactly the same dimensions for 2007-2014 or 15?
    4) Does anyone have a good set of billit silver takeoffs they would be willing to part with and ship?

    Thanks in advance for all of the help I know I will receive!!! Great bunch of folks that I hope to meet one day once I'm back in the land of the Free and Home of the Brave!

    1) the painted ones have a smooth texture and, well, the regular ones are textured. Almost like knock down.
    2) yes, I believe so.
    3) I don't know.
    4) I have some black painted ones...

    If you go offroading or drive down a gravel road, get the regular black ones. Gravel and other rocks chip and leave indents in the painted ones.

    Hey there,

    As far as I know all dimensions are the same and so is the hardware. At least according to the dealership I got mine from. I got them switched at the time of purchase so I didn't actually do it myself.

    Other than the extra cost the biggest issue with body colour is that they get dinged up by rocks very easily. I have been driving my New Jeep for 3 months and the rear flares have a few small dings each just as a DD. I regret not pulling them off and tossing a 3M coat on them. May touch them up and do it anyway.
    Sorry, no take offs here.

    Good luck with your search!

    I wanted to order my 15 Billet Silver JKUR Hard Rock with painted fender flares and black freedom top but alas this is not possible. As I am in the Balkans at this time and will be driving in various European countries, my mods will be very minor and off-road adventures will be far and few between. I plan to acquire some painted flares and 3m the leading edge surfaces.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
