Default Bras for Jeeps?

Wondered if theyíd be worth putting on to protect the grill and hood from chips. And dress up the front in the process.

I personally wouldnít for a few reasons.
My last 2 keeps have been borderline trailer queens for the rocks. Next Jeep will be too.
Iíve just never been a fan of the looks of a bra on any vehicle, I also would be scared something would get stuck under there (pebble) and cause more damage than you were trying to prevent

Ok that makes sense. I was even wondering about it rubbing from wind resistance and general vibration. Just didnít ask yet.

Why do they call it a bra? It's not like it's holding anything up.

can't ride topless with a bra. 90's are over, no more car bras

in truth, the jeep is a brick. you will get a bunch of rock chips and bug guts everywhere. if you do wear a bra, when you take it off it's going to look like a tan line.

wife's JK has 10k miles and already has 2 massive rock chips in the windshield. it happens... a lot.

I bought a used TJ that had one on it, the first thing I did was take it off and that bra had really messed up the paint under it. I would never put one on one of my jeeps!

Plastic dip spray. Mask off the area up front and go to town. If you donít like it peel it off.

There is a clear transfer film that several auto tint places offer. You might look into that.

Looks like maybe $1,000+ for a full kit for Wrangler Unlimited. If it offers good protection for a number of years then it might well be worth the price.?

Was just curious about trying to add something to the looks of a Jeep thatís mainly just one solid color and at same time protecting paint. Been hearing from others how the design and angle of the front or windshield may contribute to windshield getting cracked.

The tape from bug deflectors usually damages the paint. At least that has been my experience over time. I think prior to original installation on some, the clear coat is scuffed up , where tape sticks, to promote adhesion. Bug deflectors can add to looks, but think Iíd like to avoid those.

Got my first crack a week after I bought my 2016 almost 3 years ago. Just traded it a week ago and got a 2018 JL and the windshield is a tad more angled to help with it. I assume you now have a Jeep? Post pictures then...

What's your first impressions of the JL compared to your JK?

I thought we may have finally had a resolution to this mystery by the thread title.

Regarding the actual thread topic. Find someone local that installs Xpel and call it a day.

My wife'e Jeep is white. The grill takes a beating and trying to keep a white grill clean is wasted effort. I replaced it with a black grill, non painted. You can run it through the car wash now and it actually comes clean. For some reason the bugs don't stick to the non painted grill very well and come right off. The grill matches the bumpers and fender flares so it doesn't look bad at all.

The ride is better on the stock JL than it was on the stock JK and it doesn't wander across the lanes as much. The 8 speed transmission seems to give it a bit more pep stock than the JK did stock. Gas mileage on the stock JL is averaging about 21mpg and my JK was around 19mpg when it was stock. I love the JL so far but I will say that I did pretty much get the "soccer mom" packages (Sport S, hardtop, technology package, convenience package) which gives me a touch screen radio, electronic automatic A/C and a few others that my prior JK didn't have. One of my biggest complaints about the JK was the steering (seems better in the JL) and my second biggest complaint was the weight of those doors. These are 35lb (front) and 15 pounds lighter (back). I definitely like the look of the JL as well compared to the JK.

Now I get to start building my Jeep from the ground up again so I was a little sad to let the old one go.
