Keep your vehicle street legal with extended fender flares from Smittybilt.
Smittybilt's fender flares are 6 inches wide and are fabricated from UV stable ABS plastic. This ABS plastic is strong enough for the trail and looks good enough for the city streets. Its durable construction allows Smittybilt Fender Flares to be flexible without cracking. Bolt it on or paint it first to match your Jeep these UV stable ABS plastic is weather and fade resistant to last year after year.
Installed rear fender only so far - used fender washers on o/s to reinforce the plastic cap nut that is to keep the fender from tearing off body. The washers bend nicely with groove shape and painted black blends in fine. The bad - some of the OEM bolts are pressure fit and you have to pop them out. Next, the front bolt is accessible by a 2 " drain hole for the nut. I used dbl side tape to hold the nut to finger tip, but tough to match up as fender holes not aligned to flare. You should start front to back. Next, 2nd hole back used a stainless steel screw as existing hole was too small. Definitely resist tightening bolts until all aligned. otherwise, was easy install under an hour R&R time.
The look good but the fit was not all the great on the rear fenders at all they were a pain to get on. I had dug the screw further into the side away from the hole making it higher just to get the rear to fit
I bought these because they were in stock and in my budget and I needed a set of flares to get through inspections. I thought they would be good, but... The screws pull through if you over tighten just a fraction of a hair. The holes don't exactly line up to the holes in the body and the holes in the platic elongate easily. The plastic caps snap on well, but the bolt will easily pull through if you tighten just a SHADE too much. I don't anticipate this set holding together long. It should get me through inspections and down the road a bit, then I will buy the ones I want later. I hate buying twice.
