Prep them well and just use Krylon Fusion.

Yeah, Use Krylon Fusion. I'm In The Process Of Using Kylon Fusion Camo Flat Black. It Matches My Soft Top Better. I Wasn't Happy With The Satin Black. Good Luck!

clean really well, I used soap and water, then like everyone else said Krylon fusion works the best. I used the flat black cause I liked the non glossy look next time though I'm goin with satin.

I got green flares so i dont have that problem, but my front and rear fenders are faded. I guess just a good auto paint for those eh?

I did the satin, but it didn't match my soft top. I'm using Krylon Fusion ultra flat black and it seems closer to the top color.

Pull the flares off and hit them with a heat gun, brings the black right back, just don't melt them You can do them with a hair drier if it gets hot enough but it takes longer. Any of the tub liners work well too, so if you know someone who is lining their tub all you need it about 8 brushes worth...12 counting the shorties behind the front flares...
I've also seen it done with a propane torch, again don't melt them and DO NOT try that while they are on the jeep...
