Needed to be Hawaii Legal

Definitely a pain in the butt to install but not as bad as some of the reviews make it out to be. Lining up the actual fender to the bracket takes the longest. Spend time prepping parts and it’s straight forward.

Love the fenders but difficult install.

Love the fenders and they look great on the jeep. The install was not so smooth. Aligning the fender screw holes over the mounting pieces was not easy. I used cardboard pieces behind the speed nuts to keep them in place but it was still difficult to get the holes to line up. I did the driver side first. On the passenger side I put the mounting pieces into the fenders to check the alignment of the holes and they lined up. Still wasn’t easy but the passenger side did go better. On my 2014 JKUR I did not have the factory retainer / nut for the inner shield. Wound up getting one from the dealership for an outrageous $10. Also had to drill a hole for it since there was not a hole in the shield. The bolt was there so it worked out in the end. Be patient, take your time, you will eventually holes to line up and fenders will look great!

Great looking! A little patience to install.

I needed some fender flares. Did my research. Read reviews. Ordered flares and planned time for install. Installation was easy for everything except the actual flares. Bushwacker should fire who ever designed these and who ever let them come to market with this flaw. When you go to put the flares on none (And I Mean NONE) of the holes line up to attach the flares to the brackets. My opinion is they did this brilliant engineering without the weather stripping on, so when you put it on all the holes are pushed out too far. Once you figure this out you have to have a sharp awl to push up through the back of the hole and you can finish the installation. Other than that, pretty nice product. Love the look.

Time and patience needed

This not a quick install if u intend to reuse the stock liners. I watched a good youtube video that was very thorough. Some of the bushwhacker mounts had to be shaved down bc the weren't straight and wouldn't fit flush. Give yourself some time and don't rush and the results will be great. I am definitely happy with the result.

Thin plastic

They look very nice and were easily installed by following a YouTube video. However I wish the plastic of the actual flares was thicker and higher quality. I scratched one easily as I had it leaning against the hood while applying the weather tape.

Looks Great / Good Quality

The only reason that I didn't rate the flares a "5" was that the mounting screw holes on one of the flare supports did not line up with the flare holes. I notified the manufacturer and they sent me a replacement; it caused a 1 1/2 week delay in completing the project. The flares look great and the quality is very good.

Looks great!

I love the way the fenders look. It really finished off the look. Now all I need are some 35’s to fill in the fenders a little better. As others mention it sucks cutting the factory inner fenders to fit the new fenders, but it works. I messed up cutting my first rear fenders and had to buy a new one, but at least they are cheap. I wish they offered the fenders with pre-cut inners, it would be worth the extra cost.

Disappointed with 4 Wheel Parts

I am almost happy. I bought new fenders because I was missing 2. After receiving them almost a month ago I still don't have a full set. Very disappointed with 4 Wheel Parts Customer Service. Still haven't heard from them!!

Great looking fender

These fender flares look great and shipping was super fast!! The install was okay if you know what you are doing but all the parts needed some type of clean up or tweeking before install. The pictures on the instructions were garbage and no help at all those could be fixed for sure. All in all they seem like a great product but I still need to test them off-road. Thanks.

jeep xj flat fenders

Looks good. Mild trimming of bodywork. Fitment wasn't bad, but could have been a little better. Only real downfall was how long the back order took.

Installing bushwacker flares

when i had looked up online at these flares i was in the beginning hesitant on getting them because of the reviews. YES, the instructions are JUNK.. but its pretty well common sense. everyone i had talked to said the same thing, "i thought bushwacker short shipped me 14 bolts/nuts/washers".. but in the end the rears only take 2 bolts and nuts on each side and the rest are push clips because there is no getting at the rest of the holes due to the configuration of the wheel wells. what takes the most time is trimming the splash guards (wheel well liners) correctly.. they state "cut to short it wont tuck in the flares or not short enough the flare wont fit"... there actually very to do, rears are a piece of cake because its very simple fit, front takes some time to do. instructions bounce back and forth just confusing stuff... in the end instructions got me in the path and common sense does the rest! would i buy again? yes, sexy flares.

'95 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

Overall great product, keeps the mud and debris from being thrown up into the cab or on the side windows after installing larger tires. One thing I'd change is the side marker light sticks out past edge of fender, and I worried the trees and brush will rip them off. They should be recessed a little more. The other concern is if someone presses down, leans on, or steps out onto the fender, it might peel the double-sided tape free and I'll be starting over.

looks great, instructions were difficult

Took about 2 hours per fender in front,bout a hour each in rear. Would of went much easier had instructions been in color and more descriptive. The previous comment about switching the wires around for lights was a huge life saver. All and all finished product looks amazing and adds a ton of room for tires.

Test the wires before attaching fender.

Great directions except for wiring. Marker lights are LED and are different electrically from factory lights. Directions only stating to switch wires if lights don't work initially. They could have said, "Wire opposite, connect black to white". Aligning screws for final installation is a lot of work. I had the best luck with starting the screws one at a time at the rearward part of the fender utilizing a small punch. Remember to test the marker lights before actually installing fender. Also, the marker lights don't act as turn signals unless other aftermarket wiring is done (Check out YouTube).

they look great

hard to install

Great fenders!

Very nice product, but the instructions could have been better. Pictures were hard to see due to the fact they are photocopied. For the price you'd think they would have color photos. Once the first fender was finished (about 2 hours), the rest was easy. 4wheel parts wanted an extra $400 for installation! Easy enough to do yourself!

Changes the whole look of the jk

Love the look and fit but save yourself some time and buy some grade 8 bolts to replace what comes with these. Four bolts had such bad threads they stripped and had to be cut off. I was only using hand tools so force was not the issue.

Great product

Wanted metal flat fenders, but most of the products I looked at required modification to the body of my jeep. What I liked about these was there ease of installation and no modification to the body. Plus if I ever sell my jeep I can pop these off and put on the OE fenders.

Great Product!

It was an easier installation than I thought it would be!
