Looks good.
I'm getting tired of the cowboy pinstriping on mine. Thinking about wider flairs.

To confirm...
It is a pain in the ass to remove the stock fenders. Notably if you live in snow prone area's. Mine were a mother F-R.

Looks great man . . . did you use the Krylon Fushion? How many coats did you use?

I had to remove my flares to install my rockers and it is a P.I.T.A. Not difficult or anything just kinda grueling. I'm going to invest in one of those ratcheting wrenches for the screws and remember to wear some thick gloves to grip the little plastic peices so I don't tear up my hands next time.

I think the Krylon Fusion is made for painting plastic, sticks better and looks good longer.


I did the penetrol thing then used a Malco product called Shine It that I got from a detail shop vender. Three weeks with rain and mud, still looks like the day I did it.......... but not as good as your painted ones.

You gave 20 dollars for a hard top? Or, was it the paint? If you got the top for 20 bucks, that is the best deal EVER.. Congratulations..

Last year I got a hardtop from an 06 TJ that a guy threw away because of a busted out right window. It fits my 04 just perfect. Thank god for idiots

Hello, My recent purchase of a 03 Jeep TJ had the same thing with the fender flares. I friend of mine at work told me about a product called "Black Again". Bought it online, Tried it and it did bring the black back out.
