I wanted to trim mine so bad, but I decided to keep the stock sahara's just because they can fetch a bit of $ and I wouldn't want to swap back. I am making up a set of tubes very soon.

I saw it tonight at O'Reilly's for $8.99 and $11.99 at Auto Zone and Advanced.
It does not have adhesive on it though. At each store the only ones that had adhesive were chrome.
Does it seem like it will stay on there pretty good without adhesive?

Okay cool.
I did too see it written anywhere on the pack so I figured I'd check the other stores but they all had the same brand.
I'll get it tomorrow. Thanks.

sonofabeach, I'm not sure I see much of a difference from the O'Reilly's door edge molding and what you got from Walmart. Is it thicker/wider? Here's mine close up.

I looks the same to me. I had no intention of getting it at Wally World but I was there and saw that they had it. It's a different brand and about the same price.
I also had to get 2 packs because like the one from O'Reilly's, there's 18 feet in a pack.

I tossed mine up in the attic. I don't think cutting it would look good.

judging by Beach's pics, he didn't do anything to the bumperette holes. I filled/raptor lined mine, but eventually went with armor that covered them up.

Bumperettes:jeeps as teets:bulls

I'd just use some stainless washers and some nice stainless allen capscrews - should give it a nice finished look.

Here's mine blacked out. At night you can see it good. Kind of hard during the day so id only do about 2-3 light coats. I even did my taillights but I would tape off the reverse lights. I probably should have done that.

Has anyone trimmed factory painted fender flares? Any chipping/flaking issues?

I just cut mine down this morning. I couldn't find any of the door edging locally, everyone was out of stock. So I ordered it online. Should be here in a few days. I also ordered a couple 1" amber marker lights to put under the front flares.
