    I ordered mine unpainted black too. I figure there will be many after market options like the bushwacker pocket style flares eventually so I wanted to wait to see what comes out. We can always have the flares painted to match. I agree with you and allocated those funds to other options..

    My understanding is that the "painted" body-color matching tops and fenders on the JT (and JL also?) are not painted at all. The color on these parts are molded into and throughout the plastics,...not superficial. A later wrap job or paint job just won't be able to replicate.

    I cant find any information about the plastic itself being a different color. But I found part numbers for Rubicon fenders that seem to show some differences for paintable or textured and Halogen or LED.

    82215740AC Paintable Halogen light
    82215741AC Paintalble LED light
    82215742AC Textured Halogen light
    82215743AC Textured LED light

    The only thing that I find strange is the instructions seem to hint that they are the same part just with some extra steps for painting. Both Paintable and Textured have the same instruction PDF that I can find.
