Swapping Stock Fender Flares. Tips? Spare Rivets?

I'm swapping out my fender flares for painted ones. They should be here by the weekend.

Any tips on installing the new fenders? I'm sure there's some rivets or plastic clips that are going to break. Can anyone tell me which ones and how many I should buy before doing the swap? I found the ones below on Quadratec. Are there any others?

MOPAR 6506007AA - MOPAR® Fender Flare Plastic Rivet for 07-14 Jeep® Wrangler, Wrangler Unlimited JK & 02-07 Liberty KJ - Quadratec

Thanks, guys.

The rivets definitely break. Make sure you buy a rivet tool, it will make the installation a breeze. There are clips that mount the fender to the body...most of the time they can be saved (I think I broke two when I replaced all four). When you get the fenders off and go to re-attach make sure the clips are on the fender flares and press the fender flare onto the body. When I took my old flares off most clips stayed on the body not on the flares.....so I put all the clips on the body and tried to attach the flare to them......very frustrating.....so clips to flare first. Hope this helps. Took me less than an hour.

I used clipsandfastners.com

Check ebay for the clips. You can get them for pennies there. I have a couple of boxes spare. As the flares act as magnets out here. I had a tree borrow my right rear one last weekend.

Does any body know the item or part # for the forward most fastener for which the front fender attaches to the body? It's not a T clip it's round but different from the round clips used in the rear fender well, the "Xmas tree clips".??

I am doing the same thing, I found that there are bulk packs of this part # 1390PK at auto part stores for $5.99.

Has anyone removed the stock flares and do you have any instructions and advice?
