Replacing a Fender Flare

Hopefully this is just a quick question that I can get a quick answer for. I need to replace the passenger front fender flare on an 08 JKU. Do I reuse the hardware on the flare, or do I need to get new hardware? Where can I get this hardware, and how many?

I was looking at a picture of mine when I took them off to install flat fenders. There are 8 mounting spots. I would go to the dealer to get the clips I don't think they would be expensive.

If you are trying to keep it looking stock, go to the dealer and get the parts. My guess is that they have a mounting kit for the fender. Especially the plastic parts.

Yeah, you'll never get the old push pins out in a condition that will make them useable again... Get them from the dealer, they'll be able to tell you how many of each type you'll need.

Try your local hardware store for plastic push pins, push rivets . Dealer wanted $5.00 apiece .60 at the store. I went to ace.

$5.00 apiece would get me to look elsewhere for as close of a replacement as possible.
