I like what you are doing with those, I might have to do the same; mine are rusting through.
I look forward to see what you do with these.

We swapped out the fenders yesterday and the process was very painless. Only broke 1 fender bolt where the fender bolts to the cab. Drilled it out and re-tapped, no problem. Other than that the after-market fenders were an exact fit offering no resistance to the installation. Except for 2 holes that were missing for the washer fluid bottle every other hole was on the money. The wiring loom fastners snapped right back where the belonged and all the bolt hole are right on. You can see the OEM rust on the passenger fender and we found an aftermarket rust hole thru the drivers fender behind the flare.

I'm interested in doing this. Did you buy the more expensive set? How long did it take for you to install them? And did you replace the flares too?

I bought the pair that was $323. for the set. It took my son and I about 7 hours for the swap including one trip to the parts store and drilling out 1 bolt. I reused the flares. I installed the nylon inserts instead of the nutserts where they are installed to attach the flares.

They look great. You two did a fantastic job and spent some quality time together in the process. Try that upgrade or update with any other vehicle out the and see what the process is.

Screw the money, it was about the quality time. Number 1 son took out the drivers fender on a power pole in the snow and number 2 son took out the passenger fender and the bumper when he T boned an Impala a few weeks ago. Best part besides the quality time was their insurance paid 100% plus 4 new tires and the Impala was towed away with a broken axle. Jeep drove away.

How closely is the paint matching? Looks like it is off a bit. I painted a hood and fenders a couple of years ago, and while the paint is REALLY close, it is off just a tiny bit. Not enough for me to worry about as it is only noticeable when the Jeep is clean and in the sun.

The paint was ordered per the code and considering the vehicle has been out for almost 14 years I cannot really complain. It is off but a good compounding and polish of the old will help. Ultimately it is probably going to get fresh paint. My major concern was repairing the damage.

I bought the pair for $323 (discount Body Parts) and the local body shop was $300 cash for the prep and paint, but there is a guy on ebay that does the fenders painted to order for $274 each which is a good price but I have not seen his work. Others here have used him.
