REPLACING DEGRADING JT FENDERS
Rust Never Sleeps Replacing Degrading TJ FENDERS
Rust, every Jeep owners other four letter word. My front fenders finally got to the point where I was running out of good metal to attach new metal. I came across a local supplier selling replacement fenders for $140 a side. They’re imported, solid enough, and came primed in a solid black. As I would come to learn, they fit as close to perfect as possible.
It’s not a hard job. I may have used an
impact and air ratchet, but there was nothing stopping me from just using hand tools. So this is definitely a driveway doable job. Be prepared for broken bolts, and plan for two days.
Also, expect to drill a couple holes. Over the years some accessory mounts changed, and things didn’t always line up on the aftermarket fenders. It wasn’t a big deal, just worth noting.
