Default To bedline or not to bedline?

I have a "bright white" 2017 JKU Sport and have happened across a tintable raptor bed-liner kit. I also have some white automotive basecoat tint, to give the bedliner a "satin white" finish.

Now my question is; while we all know that satin black fender flares, bumper and hard top look great on a gloss black wrangler jk, how would satin white fender flares, side steps, front grille (I damaged the stock paint installing my bullbar), rear bumper and bullbar look with a bright white jku? I would also want to eventually do the hard top, but wanted to start small (probably just the front grill and bullbar) to get better at applying it first.

My other option would be to tint it a sort of "Rhino Grey" but from the get go, I have had my heart set on "whiting out" my wrangler so would consider this a compromise.

Thanks in advance for any advice!

This was a build long before they colour matched hard top and flares from the factory.
I always thought it looked sweet, love the wheels too

That looks great! Thanks for sharing it - I'm envious of the wheels... They make me want to spray over my KMC XD's haha

Great thing about a Jeep is you can do what you want to suit your tastes. To be honest, the Sahara's with all one color have never really made my whistle blow, but the pic posted above isn't that bad at all. Black accents/aftermarkets on an all white body isn't a bad choice, especially if it is what you really want. Test it on some scrap before you go all in to make sure the texture is right and the paint gets you a color you're happy with. Good luck, and post some pics when you're done!

Each to their own.
Colour matched stuff doesn't do it for me but it's your Jeep.
Maybe try some plastidip or vinyl wrap first to see if you like it
