Unfortunately for me one of the ones that is inaccessible is the one that is loose. Murphy's Law I guess. That how most of my projects turn out.|

Thanks CJ98, Guess I have little bit of work for this afternoon. If I had a newer jeep I'd leave them and tape and paint. Since I'd like to clean it up a bit I'll take 'em off first.
M2Jamison, well done on your jeep!

Dang flare bolts. I tried taking the bolts off the flares and they just spin. Do these pop out? Or pull out out with vice grips? then replace them.
Kwhite, nice job on your jeep.

|M2Jamison||Hahahaha, yes... it does! The first plate is the one I brought it home with, the second plate is the "legal" one after I got her registered. I also painted the bezels, removed the jugs from the bumper and installed the new Trektop NX. I've done a lot in the 2 weeks since I bought her.|

|GrassKicker||Ellman, where did you get the new nutcerts? and did it take a special tool to put them in? I just got new Flat Flares and I popped out 5 nutcerts on one side of my Jeep.|

Pic or did not happen
The flares are a PAIN IS THE A$$ to remove. Never again. Many just shove paper In between the flare and body, prep and paint. As far as the milk jugs... Throw them in the garbage

|Fizzgiz||Pics? And did you do any prep work for it to stick to the plastic?|

|kwhite0416||I did my fender flares with rustoleum spray on bedliner last weekend. I am super impressed with how much better they make my tj look than before. It also seems to be very durable. I was gonna do the milk jugs, but i ended up just taking all of them off. It gave it a more offroad look. i think will do my front and rear bumper next.|

Rustoleum spray liner
Was very skeptical about using the spray liner on my flares and milk jugs. Took me about an hour to mask off flares and remove the jugs. Painted and reassembly took another hour. Wow! what a difference. Thanks for the idea!
