Searched through the forums and didn't find all that much info...

Just bought a '13 JKU and am looking for a product to keep the fender flares/bumpers in good condition. Any advice on what products to use would be much appreciated!

I got some at Walmart but haven't used them yet.
I did try Back To Black but after it rained it left a white calky

Careful with the magic eraser...I used it on my wife's van and where it hit the paint it left some obvious marks, like it went through the clear coat. Just be careful. I don't know what is in those things, but I will not let them near my new Wranger!

Nothing in them... they are just abrasive, you can probably get some polishing compound and polish the clear coat again with a orbital buffer, depending on how far you went into it..

303 and Vinylex by Lexol seem to be the two most popular. I haven't tried the 303 yet, but I love the Vinylex. It's good for all rubber and plastic trim!

Since it's new you should look at Uv protectants, once it getys worn in and starts to fade then you can try Forever Black. I put this stuff on my TJ's fenders 2 years ago and it just started to show wear/fade this year. It goes on like edge dressing btw.

IDK the difference but used Back to Black for years on the TJ....maybe it has to do with the size of the flares/ fenders.....on the the wife's JK I use turtle wax ICE it lasts well and than don't need to worry about having something else for the rest of the Jeep
