I've seen these little metal things about the size of a bolt... what are they for? what are they called?

There's a kit (forget the name) that has snap on pieces for the JK/U fenders that provide a rivet look. The kit is very expensive for what it is.

Given where the conversation is going I may be lost... Are you talking about the Smittybilt XRC Armor/Fenders? If so, they are bolts not rivets. Those on the rocker armor are actually holding it to the body, those on the edge of the fenders are aesthetic... It may just be a rumor, but when these first came out I believe that the bolts on the fenders were designed to allow for the addition of a fender extension to cover the tires while on road and their removal when off road (as far as I know they never materialized and now what you see is what you get).
