Shouldn't your Sahara have painted fenders? Post a picture of your jeep.

You'd have to get em painted. Find a good body shop that can handle plastics (if the plan is to have the stock bumpers and side steps done). The fenders should already be white...maybe I'm wrong, but I thought all of the Saharas came with paint-matched fenders.

Either way: body shop.

Cant forget the black one:

I really wish I could figure out how to embed these. Either way I think the white and black look awesome, still on the fence about the orange.

That was fast, just a week ago in this thread http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/201...ml#post2040951, you were thinking about ordering a 2012 JKUS.

I like the black bumpers, they do not show scratches as much as painted ones will.

Those are models.

And I always wondered how he didn't realize that he put the black ones taillights in upside down. Lol.

They are not models, they are real. Look at the video of the orange one, you can see the license plate says Celebrity Auto. I did a google search on Celebrity Auto and found their web page. I have no affiliation with the company, I just like the look. Probably not the best for the trails though.

It looks like they are selling the Jeeps for anywhere from $52,000 to $44,000.

Well lookie there. I had always heard these were models. Thanks for the correction.

Either way, still not my cup-o-tea.
