You could drive through some "too" narrow wooded trails, thats the way that the tj flares seem to come off the easiest and fastest.

There are a few bolts (smaller washer) on each flare that use a nutsert into the fender, just remove those. The others (larger washer) have a rectangular piece of plastic that acts like a nut. Just grab onto the back with pliers or you finger and they are pretty easy. In the rear you have to partially remove the plastic wheel wells first (mine are gone).

It's not. I think people have problems because they don't grab the backs and the screws just spin otherwise.

this is hilarious, its such a simple process to remove them and yet everyone hates doing it as well as me, ide rather replace a broken shaft then remove my flares. its only hard cause i cant fit my air ratchet or a normal ratchet in there!

forever black is also known as "Forever Re-Apply" - Krylon Fusion is the only answer

We did, though it was tough.

Did you get different flares or the same ones?
