I think you're right about the install. I was putting on flat fender flares, so I didn't have to mess with all the little plastic clips. Could be a nightmare, but better than paying someone to do it.

once the under cover is off is it just some bolts to undo the fender or are there some more surprises to deal with?
SilverRubi's right. You'll have to remove several bolts, then pop out the plastic screws, then – basically – rip the fender free of the plastic clips that hold it against the Jeep body. It'll come off with the entire splash guard still attached.

To reinstall you'll have to have all new plastic screws and clips.

Click on the thread below, scroll down to "Rear Fender Installation Instructions" and read steps 1-4. That tells you how to do it, and also shows pictures. This is what I did when I was installing my Bushwacker flatties.

Good luck.

What I believe you are referring to as screws are actually plastic rivets. I use a pair of diagonal pliers to cut the heads off. Where the flare sets against the body, it is held on with plastic clips. They usually break off so you will need new ones. Replacement OEM flares are less than $100 from online retailers.

Just the plastic?
