Black Plastic Bumpers
What do you guys use on these to keep them nice?

Also, I was surprised how easy they scratch. Rubbed up against a shrub in my driveway on the corner of the bumper and it scratched throught the surface of the plastic.

You'd think if these were designed to be in the bush they would be made out of something tougher.

Don't have black bumpers, but have heard 303 works.

I used Mothers back to black. Made the bumpers and flares look new. Used it at the end of October and still looks good. We will see how well it holds up in the desert sun once summer comes back around.

I took it off, its in the shed and stays nice and black and no scratches. But before that I just used McGuire's each time I washed it.

Back to Black

Don't use Armorall. It looks really nice, but after the first rain it all washes away.

Meguiers Ultimate Black works well. I'm happy with it.

303 works well as does Turtle Wax Ice which you can use on the whole Jeep minus the windows.

Spray em with Rustoleum Truck bed liner/coating. Did that with my chopped fenders about a year or so ago? and they are still holding up. I haven't had to touch them up yet.

I've been using Mother's Back to Black which is just ok. When it runs out I will definitely be looking for something better.

I have used both Mothers Back to Black and Aerospace 303 here in Tucson, AZ (Sun shines 350 days per year) and they both work. But the Aerospace 303 holds up much better over the long term.
