Great product. Price is great and the fit is just right. I did take mine to a body shop and have put on. They said that the Flares where just like the factor ones. I would have put them on my self but didn't have the time. My old ones where faded really bad. They look great and will buy again from 4WD. Thanks
I had a perfect fit with this set on my 1979 CJ5. The directions called for vice grips and some drilling, but I lucked out and didn't find this to be necessary. Like the earlier reviewer mentioned, heat them up in the sun before installation. It is worth noting that AMC changed parts and sub-manufacturers on a regular basis. This means that the parts differ slightly year to year, and you might not get lucky like I did.
Be sure to let flares warm up in the sun before installing. Use three pairs of vice grips to clamp and hold flare to fender flange; one at the top/middle, and one several inches above each end of the flare. It's helpful to have a second pair of hands hold flare in position when clamping it to the metal flange on the jeep when marking and when installing. I used a 90 degree scratch awl to mark hole locations on fender (angled marker pen would be better); had to SLIGHTLY ream out holes on fender to make screws fit, but don't ream out holes too much. And don't ream out holes on plastic flare at all. Be as accurate as you can when marking hole locations.
Bought this fender flare set for my GF's 2001 Wrangler. Black on black, the original flares had faded to grey years ago. Crown flares are top-notch and bolt right up. This product had all needed flares (6) and every piece of hardware you might need. Actually, the mounting hardware I took off was like new and was reused. Very nice touch was that replacement push plugs were included to remount the rear wheel well liners; yes, they have to come out to mount the rear flares! This is not a highly technical project but it is fairly difficult. Tool and hand clearances are pretty tight. A 1/4 drive pneumatic ratchet will speed up the job.
Rugged Ridge states that their flares are UV treated. Does that actually help with sun aging, and are these UV treated as well?

Hey Ken, the Crown Automotive Fender Flare Kit would also be UV treated and it does help out greatly with preventing sun fade. Thanks for your question.
