I like that it has the logo on it. But it appears that the bra would cause scratching on the paint.

Jeff.

edit: the more I look at it, the more I like it. I say keep it.

The problem with the bra's is they trap dirt, salt, sand, fecal matter, etc. under there, and it will damage or fade the hood- we try to discourage them at our dealership- Mark W.

I had one on mine for about two weeks. At highway speeds, it would trap air that would bounce off of the windshield, and flow back under the bra, causing it to balloon up and flap. I had it as tight as I could get, and there was no air coming under the front, it was all coming in from the rear of the bra. Off it came, and into the cabinet it went!

Best of Luck with yours!

Cheers!

I don't like them for fit reasons and that they trap dirt below, but wife's Jeep, wife's happy, nothing else matters.

Well, that is deff. a problem for us midwest and east coasters but I dont think he's gona need to worry much about salt down there in Texas. I have never been real partial to them just because I dont like the way they look very much. But then again, if its for the wife, its best to make her happy. She does have a very clean and good lookin Jeep though!

I do not care for it myself but as others have stated, as long as the wife likes it than she is happy which is a good thing.
And may I suggest a different sticker for your Jeep

God forbid you scratch the Jeep. LOL!
Doesn't look bad to me. Like others say, if the wife likes it, it stays.

so i drove it around this weekend ( the wife had my dodge cummins )
and i didnt see any wind ruffling it up. i got that thing hella tight and
it seems to stay in place very well. the buckle is big but it doesnt
slap the hood, it really seems to stay in place well. as far as trapping
crap under neath it, i total agree and will be watching it over the next
few weeks to see how much it really traps. we have had a good bit
of rain the last five days and the bra seems to dry out very fast.

thanks for the opinions guys, and yes, happy wife, happy life.

btw, where can i get one of those wonderfull wranglerforum decals ?

Glad to hear Austin got 5 days of rain. As far as the bra goes, I think the black on silver looks good.

not a fan of the bra's on any vehicle. i think the only kind clothing that would benfit a jeep would be a corset haha...might work similar to a "tummy tuck"

but as long as the wife is happy...ur doing good. maybe u can convince her to buy u something for your jeep

It will rub the paint from simple everyday movement, then when you take it off the outline of the bra will be noticable.I would never use one personally, sorry to be negative but I am just saying what I already know

I won't put one on my Jeep because it's just not my thing. But, if I did buy one, that is the one I'd buy and IMHO it looks good on your silver jeep!

Tru Tru, i actually took mine off tonight, never had it off i bought it with it on, you could deff tell where the cover was on the hood, color had faded slightly where the cover didn't cover, and it left a line (scratch) with the outline of the cover. It's not too too bad it'll buff out but it did do some damage.

The only thing is your bra shouldn't ride up or flap in the wind because of its design, my bra went all the way to the back of the hood in the middle. So that way air could get under it.

looks good though, silver wont really show the scratches

I'm not a huge fan of that one, or any bra honestly. BUT that doesn't stop me from having one!

I bought a "LeBra" bra to use for dusty trail rides, highway trips, and love bug season (for those fortunate enough to NOT have a love bug problem, the air here is thick with them several times a year, and they have acidic guts that eat away at paint if left on for more than about 24 hours).
