TJ fender flare extensions

Hi everyone. Hope you can help. I just purchased a 98 TJ 4.0L in gunmetal blue, 2" lift with 31s. I am very happy to have another jeep. I had a 98 a long time ago but had to part with it. I have been missing it ever since. The PO of it had put on a set of plastic rocker covers. They were starting to come off and I was concerned that water would collect and cause rusting. Of course when I pulled them off I revealed the three holes for the fender flare extensions. I would like to replace them with an aftermarket set. At some point I will get some rocker protection but I want to live with the jeep the way it is until I figure out what I want. Can anyone tell me what hardware is needed and how they mount. Apparently they do not come with the hardware.

Thanks
Scott

I'm sure if you keep an eye out you'll find someone like myself who offers up their old dog legs for free when they install rocker guards. I don't think anyone ever took me up on my offer so I probably tossed them.

Rather than buying a set of extensions that you don't intend to keep, head to the hardware store and buy rubber plugs to fill the holes. You can get them in gray so that they will be barely noticeable. Quick and cheap.

They are not expensive and plugs are not going to cut it for me. Just need to know what hardware I need. I assume there must be some kind of keyhole on the back and they slide on.

Just a couple of bolts. Same bolts as on the fender flares, iirc.
The big hole just gets covered by the flare extension.

Got them today. After seeing them it was obvious how they mount. Just a couple of m5 screws. Thanks for the help.
