CG seems to not show the dirt except where the oils of little finger prints are. I love this color!

Thanks.
I did use a header bar too, I think it was $50ish but worth it because everything fits perfectly!

Thanks. It's the bumper everyone loves to hate, the Smittybilt M.O.D. bumper with the mid width extension.

I didn't have any issues putting it on except for the bull bar to the bumper. Some simple Dremel grinding sorted it out.

Glad to know it's sorted. One of the best looking IMO

Cool, thanks! I've jumped off the Dune bandwagon, now it's between CG and Billet.

Tough choice. I didn't want the same color that all other vehicles have, silver. It's the most popular color and green makes up only 3% of all vehicle colors. But the new billet

I really don't wash mine (just occasional quick hose to get the bulk of the mud off) but light dirt doesn't stand out that bad at all.

Mud on the other hand... Even a little stands out. AND I LOVE THAT

I like it dirty....

they do look good dirty.. but mud stains the plastic and can reek havoc on the belly of your rig. i'm bad about washing mine... typically just power wash the underside if it's real wet or muddy. once a month or so i get the detail done by the guy that comes to our work. it's cool to polish up my buddy once in a while.

after all - it looks good clean too. and there's plenty of scratches to show that i use it in the dirt!

I went through six bucks in quarters at the self service car wash yesterday morning in 28 degrees and snow because I'm scared of the salt (or whatever that is they use on the roads here in CT) - just to take it out last night & get it all muddy. Why does it always work that way?

A good medium bristled brush does wonders for mud on the fenders, for the record.

Went the budget $189 smittybilt route. Not supper happy about the GAP. WTF. Looks good in the sun but now I need to fab a filler to hide the frame. I'm thinking I could get some aluminum diamond plate and paint it flat black to cover the top. Another you get what you pay for.

I don't think this has anything to do with the cost... you should do better research before you buy stuff. Surely someone had pics of this bumper on the web before you, amirite?

I have jumped on the Commando Green train. I ordered a Rubicon Unlimited on Monday and should have it in 5 to 6 weeks. This will be my first Wrangler and I can't wait.
