Front Wing replacement

Just had my Wrangler Unlimited for 4 days when the front wing took a knock and now needs replacing.
Is it a big job and are there any manuals available out there giving step by step instructions on how to do it?
Any advice would be most welcome.
Model: Unlimited Sport
Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Do you mean fender or fender flare?

For those that have never owned British steel....

You guys need to get out more. Of course a wing is a fender.




I don't know if it like all the other jeeps but generally there are about five or six bolts that hold it to the tub and four or five that hold it to the grill. The hardest part will probably be getting everything else fastened to it in the engine bay off. Maybe a brace or two inside and out.

Oh, sorry.

Thank you for all the ammusing replies.
Sorry I wasn't clearer in my description, but what I meant was the front plastic wheel arch. It took a knock but wont spring back to its exact original shape, presumably there are support brackets holding it up which must be slightly bent?

Bloody wankers.

If ya buggered-up the wing, try the new Bushwacker Flat Flares for a replacement, mate. It's the dog's bullocks.

What kind of front bumper is that on the Bushwacker pic? That is exactly what I am looking for!
