Interior Paint Durability?

So far I like the changes Jeep made to the JL's interior coming from the JK that was aging really fast. One concern though is the painted surfaces. Over time when off roading and putting the JL through its paces, I fear we might come across some problems. Does anyone on this board have experience working with paint and know of some protective measures we can take?

I don't think scratches and scuffs will be a big problem, but I wonder if they will be any fade/change in color from sun exposure. Since its all plastic though, I would imagine you could just get any basic hard plastic refinisher.

I had to repaint some parts of the dash on my JK years ago, and it was pretty straight forward. Be careful with any suncreens or lotions that you use, because they can eat away at the interior finish.

you'd be surprised at how easily scratches can build up from simple things like using the incorrect cloth type to wipe down those painted areas.

I've never encountered any interior issues with Wranglers in the past, and that's with plenty of time in the sun. Though a black interior will get a little too warm for comfort on those sunny days.

Scratches are inevitable and will happen with regular owners, its most common with the exterior and over time can damage the original finish.
