Smittybilt has everything you need to protect your Jeep from bumper to bumper. Smittybilt's XRC Armor is designed to perfectly contour to the factory body lines and includes the necessary mounting hardware. All armor is powdercoated in a two-stage textured matte black finish and feature Smittybilt's limited lifetime warranty.
Is there a need to cut any of the Jeep LJ body when installing these flares/protection - both in the front and rear? If there is cutting required, to what extent and are the instructions useful enough for this instruction (assuming rookie weekend warrior and rookie shop tools)?
Asked by KCJ from Macomb, MI on
KCJ, yes the Smittybilt TJ Armor Package does require some cutting. The majority of the cutting will be on the front fenders. You have to cut off the top layer and reuse the inner fender. I personally have installed 4 sets of these fenders and they can be done in a day with basic hand tools. If you do not have a reciprocating saw you can buy, rent or borrow one and it will go a lot faster.

What tools are needed to install this armor package? does it bolt on, welding required?
Asked by aaron from dumas TX on
Aaron, this Smittybilt YJ Armor Package can be installed in a day using some basic hand and power tools. You will need a reciprocating saw, a drill, some vise grips, screw drivers and maybe a rubber mallet. There is no welding required. You will have to cut your stock front fenders but it is pretty much a bolt on package.

Asked by from on
Yes they do. The tube fender is cut to make more room for bigger tires.
