They will do what I want. As far as fading, took delivery of Jeep in July and looks as good today as the day it was delivered. They guarantee it for life so im not too worried. The Jeeps they build for "production" are for the person who just wants to buy a jeep already done and ready to go that look good and purpose built for light offroading(My Wife). If she is happy with what is on the car, then im happy.
I was just describing what the coating looks like to someone who hasn't seen it before. I'm sure it provides great protection although I'm a little dubious about the benefits of Kevlar since Kevlar products are fiber-based and layered to provide their toughness. There's a Starwood in my 'hood that was done with Off Camber upgrades, is black Kevlar, and has a take on the old Renegade stripes in red Kevlar. It looks awesome! I like what Starwood does, I just wish they'd have a little more variety than all the charcoal grey, Smitty-fied ones that are out there.

For Kevlar paint you can look at a company called Camoliner. They used to do all the painting for Starwood but do not any longer. They will give quotes via email and have great customer service.

I love the chunky look of the pocket flares I've seen on older models, but the way these stick up past the hood seam and out front past the grill make them seem a little oversized for the JK.

The Kevlar bedliner coating is outright awesome!!

I rarely like pockets; but I like them here. It's just right with the larger lift. They often look too big for the Jeep.

Love the color. What color are you going with?

The other one's make me think of the chick in the Bushwacker commercials.

I think I like the flats a little better too. That said, you have a very cool jeep, pockets and all!

I like the flats. Pocket flares look a bit too big for me. I guess it depends on how you wheel. For me, the minimal fenders make more sense and they aren't in the way as much.
