BLK00TJ There's one nutsert on the front of the rear wheel well that is inaccessible from the inside of the tub. They others you can use a set of visegrips to tighten the bolts. 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.

Hmm dang that worked for me. Maybe use a flat head skrew driver to push up against the nutsert or hold down the nutsert on the outside? or maybe some needle nose pliers to hold it? Depending on where they are you may not have much if any access to the back side of them. Sorry the method I used didnt help ya:/ I guess yours are worse than mine. Anybody else have a good idea?

Kwhite, nice job on your jeep.
Mine did the same thing! I ended up pulling on the flare to keep pressure on the nutserts and un bolted them. All of mine a like that my rear flares are held on my 2 bolts and a zip tie I believe nutserts in the right name for them. Sorry if I'm mistaken:P

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.

Just paper and blue tape. Alcohol. Used some on the flares to! Paint thin coats and let dry!

Are the nutserts completely out? We cut them out, and I was mistaken we didn't use nutserts, we used the same type of bolts with the back piece that it screws into. Found everything at home depot. To be honest it's worth it to get rid of those POSs in the first place, they're worthless, especially considering after so many years they end up just spinning.

We found out the flares were a PITA when we went to replace the extended ones I bought the jeep with back to the stock ones. Ended up ripping half of the nutserts out and replacing them. Now they all have nice new hardware keeping them tight. Luckily if I ever have to take them off in the future, it'll be much easier now

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!
