Rear Flare Removal Help (Front Two Bolts)

I have the inner liner removed and all bolts except front too that you do not have access to the back side. Is there a trick to remove these? They are just spinning.

Sounds like the "certs" are stripped. Try gently prying between the flare and the body with a screwdriver or flat putty knife while you are turning the screws and see if they will back out. It is common for these things to strip. My 2000 has self tapping screws at the rear side of the flares for this reason. Good Luck

Are you removing them to paint them? If so - I taped off and sprayed - way less aggravation! If you're replacing then refer you to D O except I'll say good 'luck'!!! Just saw you got them off - no matter how much of a pia anything you do to your jeep it's always kinda fun and worth while!

A couple weeks ago I had the same problem while installing my armor. I used this tool, it's like a rivet with female threads. I've had the tool for awhile and never used it. Hell, I didn't even know how to use it. Once I practiced a couple times( on scrap) threw them on the Jeep. Better than factory that's for sure.
