Trim Black ??

Hi, I'm new to the forum and just purchased a 2003 wrangler, light blue in color.

I want to paint the outside wheel trim parts and don't know if stock was flat black or grey in color. They are faded Grey now.

Did they come in grey and black?

Thanks for your help!

Some Wranglers came with wider painted fender flares in body color, black, or gray. (Saharas, Rubicons, and some special edition Wranglers).

Most all the rest are just black plastic flares that fade and turn gray.

A lot of folks on here use Krylon Fusion satin black spray paint for plastics. I took their advice and painted my flares. They looked great, and the rear flares (all I have left now) still look pretty good 4+ years after painting.

Thanks, I was going to use the Krylon Fusion from reading other post but didn't know for sure the original color, it is a Sport so I'm sure theu were Black.

I would recommend bedliner. Thanks what I did for my faded flares and now they look great.

What kind of bedliner spray, I don't have any carpet in my jeep and was thinking doing all bedliner spray in there if I could do myself.

Thoughts?

I used rustoleum bedliner spray on my flares & bumpers, even the "JEEP" logo piece below the radiator grill. Turned out well, and held up well.

If you're going to bedline the tub, Monstaliner is a good durable option, and has color options. Prep work is the key, if it's not prepped well, it won't last long.

i used the heat gun treatment. Easy, and it was like the heat gun was a spray gun.

This treatment only lasts a month or so. OP, don't do this.
I did mine with "back-to-black when I first got my Jeep. Then after getting black stains on my jeans anytime I brushed against the flares, they were back to faded by the end of the month.

If you plan on actually doing some Four Wheeling, your fender extensions are gonna get pretty scratched up. So, you could put out a ten spot for the higher priced fix that won't last any longer or look any better after a few go-arounds with the "Great Outdoors," or you could do what the rest of us do, Krylon Bumper and Trim, spray on hides a whole lot of those times that things just don't go right, and it's cheaper too!
