armor question

I saw the diamond plate looking plastic things that cover the front of your hood and fenders, rocker panel bottoms, etc.

Question is..If you taped everything off and rhino lined the front edge of hood and fenders would it look crappy?

Probably. What is it you're trying to accomplish by doing this?

Hmmm... Getting outta my realm now... On that one all I can say is it probably won't look good. What color is your jeep?

Solar yellow with black rims and black hardtop. The black plastic would blend right in. Just not a double stick tape fan.

Your best bet is to just not worry about the front

If my jeep was just for off road i would care less.
I see nothing wrong with trying to keep it looking nice. Would you rather buy something that is all beat to shit or something that was taken care of?
