Yep True on the quality.
Let me explain what it is. This stuff has softer Resin than what the factory used. What the Jeep Plant did was laminate the OEM plastic parts with real carbon and then use a resin or possibly a gel coat hence the cloudy appearance it has (The OEM Stuff). The OEM parts fall off because the resin or Lamination was wrong what we call de-lamination. Few Reasons this happens another thread LOL.
This stuff is a lot softer and has almost like a flex resin almost like DuraFlex bumpers but clear so it all comes down to the type of resin that is laid over the real Carbon. It could last a while could yellow in no time at all it will yellow that's a fact it is just a matter of how long it takes.
Their is no doubt I love the look of it!! This stuff looks hot and personally only commented in the first place because I figured someone should know what will happen (The OP). I priced the OEM Plastic and it's a lot of money upwards of almost 1k or more depending what dealer quotes you to replace it all if one decides they want to ditch the carbon look. I'm pretty sure once it is stuck on their good it will pull all the cheap silver paint off the OEM plastic and they will have no choice other than having to replace it all the OEM plastic with new stuff.
