Jeep fender flare

Well on my to work today and some idiot in a parked van flung his door open as I was passing him. Caught my rear passenger side flare. Question. I looked the part up and its not expensive so probably gonna replace it myself. For those who have removed or replaced flares, is this a pretty straight forward job? I see several small bolts underneath...any clips or rivets I need to know about?

No rivits but several clips. The plastic plugs that attach the inner and out fenders are fairy tough but the clips that attach the outer fender to the body are quite fragile. YOu should be able to get replacements at a hardware store (like Ace) or an auto parts store.

You can go to ClipsAndFasteners.com - Automotive Retainers,Clips and Fasteners . These are the three p/n's you will need: 20887, 13751, and 11146. I just bought a package of each and it was only about $24 shipped.

Thanks. I'll check that site out. Now I read there's eight clips attaching the flare to the body but are those bolts underneath or plastic plugs disguised as bolts? Yknow where the flare and inner well meet.

Look at the directions online for the Bushwacker flat flares. They show how to remove the flares pretty well, and once you have them off, it's not hard to figure out how to get the new one on.

You can have my flare I just removed if you pay shipping. PM me if interested.

I have extra clips too.

Just plastic plugs on the liners, it takes all of about two minutes to remove the rear flare.

I am pretty sure you can heat it up with a hair dryer enough for it to be plyable and you can smush the dent out. Probably still be a slight crease...but...cost is $0.

One of my friends suggested the heat gun route too. Don't want a crease left though. Just gonna buy the flare and while im at it I want to order the clips and I guess the plastic plugs. I'm guessing removing the flare will probably break these.

You might check Craigslist in your local area. Lots of people take off their stock fenders for aftermarket and then throw them up there once the better half gets tired of seeing them lying around. Just another option for you as well. With yours already being faded, it might allow you to find a match so it is not obvious with a brand new fender flare next to older ones.

Got a 2013 so no fading yet but I'll give craigslist a look just in case someone swapped out already.

Any of the 2007-2013 should work. If I am wrong, someone will come along shortly to correct me.
