    Speaking of fenders, is there not an option for plane Jane black fenders anymore? Everything Iíve seen is painted.

    There's still black fenders. In fact, Tony and Steph ordered their JL like that.

    I think you don't see much of them now because the new fenders just look cool. They are a LOT narrower than the JK fenders and they also have the black trim on the edge of them. This gives them more of a CJ look or at least to me anyway. See, painted fenders with black flares

    big fan on the upper front shock change - what a pain that nut was/is- also i wonder if that fender is a 2 piece so you could just remove the inner and the black part and have a perfectly "cut" fender, if not if do appreciate the cut guide they will be providing from the factory lol

    LOL!! It really is a crazy thing how a simple change could make everyone so happy

    As far as the fender goes, I really like the way the look painted and with the black trim and it's gonna be harder for me to remove them just to gain more clearance

    I do like the paint/black trim as well, seems like the JL offers a bit more clearance anyway so may not be an issue, I guess youíll get find out and let us all know lol!!

    Well, the Rubicon fenders are higher to begin with so hopefully I can keep them as is.

    Yup, they're like highline fenders now. If you look at the Mojito Green Jeep pics I posted, you should be able to see this.
