Fender Flares

Hello everyone,
I am rather new to this website, and to the Jeep Wrangler community. I have a 2000 Wrangler. It has the 4.0 Liter inline 6, with 5 Speed manual transmission. All factory except a cool air intake.
My question is about after market fender flares. I was browsing JCWhitney.com, and was considering getting some new ones. Does anyone know if they are bolt on? Or would changing them out be a pretty major job?
Thanks for any feedback!

Those at JC Whitney should all be bolt on.

The removal of the stock flares is not hard but can be a bit tedious due to the nutserts that they use in some areas.

i just took all my flares off in 35 minutes. i had to stick my hand in the back to hold the nuts. the lower ones use metal plugs that spin freely inside the fender. i held them with vice grips relatively easy removal. the little ones behind the wheel well, you can losen with a wrench and it just slides to the left and removes the 3 nuts do not need to come out.

while theyre off it may be a good time to buff and wax behind them, i had a ton of crud stuck back there

btw, the rear ones come off easier if you take out the wheel well liner, its held in with those black plastic push pins. just pry out. depending on your tire size and ride height you might need to either jack up or remove the wheels.

i just jacked up the jeep a little bit to fit my fat arms inside of the wheel clearances.

good luck.

I recommend the 6" flares and they're not hard
My 2.5L will your 4.0L

I changed mine out this past weekend. Mine was tedious because of the 33's. I ended up removing my wheels so I could reach them better. I ordered the ones from crown. They aren't the pocket versions but they were way less expensive. Like $150 total, shipped. That was for the 6 piece set.
