JKU Bushwacker Flat Fenders

Wondering if anyone has installed these? How was the install? Bushwacker says "no drilling required". I'm relatively new to working on a vehicle and would like a more straightforward mod to do. Love how these look.

Thanks in advance.

There is a couple threads on them on here, but they are right by saying to drilling. Install is not bad, just time consuming. Take your time. It took me and my wife 2:45 to install the front 2 fender flares, and just 2 hours for me alone to do the back ones.

Cutting the inner fender flares is the worse part of the install. The fronts are more difficult to do than the back ones. Just take your time and you will be happy with the results.

Cut the inner flares wider then the instructions state and trim as needed. I followed the instructions and the inners are a little short. PM me if you want to sell off your side marker lenses and bulb sockets and drivers side front flare support bracket. Good luck

This isn't a step-by-step but it's a good overview. Basically you attach a mounting point and the flares go on that. It uses the same holes as the oem flares.

I got mine from amazon, a little over 400 bucks.
Were not too hard to install, patience will be your friend here.

It's not difficult, but tedious and time-consuming. I always seem to take longer than I should, but it ended up taking me about 6 hours to install the front fenders and 3 hours for the rear fenders. That was with some part-time help from my wife.

I used a hacksaw to cut the first inner shield, and I was nervous about cutting it too much, so I spent a lot of time on the first one. After that, a jig saw took care of the other 3 much quicker.
