Faded bumpers?

I have a JKU Sahara and I don't have the silver plate crap on my rear bumper. I have put on an aftermarket front bumper on but I have yet to replace the rear one yet and it looks pretty bad. I am considering either using a plastic dip or bed liner spray to bring that puppy back. Anyone done this and how did it turn out? I e heard 303 or the ICE stuff but I think mine are beyond that point.

You could use a heat gun on it if you think its to far gone.

I have a 2007 JKU. I don't have the OEM bumpers on my Jeep but for my fender flares I use Mother's Back to Black. Here's a pic on my factory bumper that I'm selling on Craig's list. I spiffed it up with Mother's prior to posting (I haven't sold it yet so it still looks like this).

If all else fails you can cover up the middle of the bumper with the silver plate crap.
