I used this approach on both the strip and sensors:

Sand, adhesion promoter, self etching primer, primer, primer sealer, color and clear.

good info thanks. my truck is going into the shop to get a new rear bumper cover to replace the one the one that got rear-ended. Since they are transferring the strip over I might just have them paint it then. I need to try and find some rear pics of brilliant black painted strip.

LOL yea I think paint match is the way to go. It will complete the look with your headlights if I ever get my lazy ass to install them.. They look awesome in my garage right now ... in the box

So from what I read so far it seems the sensors still work fine as long as they are not too dirty. Well that may be a problem with the amount of time I find to wash my Jeep LOL

Headlights always look better on Jeeps. LOL.

And yep, sensors work fine as long as the paint doesn't start to flake/lift. Easier to properly prep and paint sensors if you pull the strip off the Jeep vs. trying to paint it on.
