Hey guys. Today I'm here with the Barricade Aluminum Inner Fender Guards fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. This is gonna be a great option for you guys out there looking for some more durable protection to your inner wheel while you're out on the trail and debris and rocks are kicking up. These are also gonna do a great job at heat extraction on front to keep your engine cooler over a longer period of time and not to mention, these are gonna give you a finished off-road look.At the moment, these are gonna be your most affordable option at roughly $190 for just the front or just the rear, and that price will double if you're looking for a full kit. These will be lower priced considering these are a more basic option compared to the other inner fender guards on the page that are a little bit higher priced. However, these still are gonna be very durable and have a very long lifespan.Install is gonna be a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter because there will be drilling and cutting involved. However, you can get this done in your driveway in about two to three hours. So speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that we used for this install were an impact wrench, safety glasses, a trim removal tool, a 10 millimeter wrench, a center punch, a 3/8 inch drill bit, a 1/8 inch drill bit, a Phillips bit, the provided Allen key, a 5/32 Allen key, a 10 millimeter deep socket, and a drill.So in order to install our new inner fender liner, we have to remove this stock one. It's gonna be a couple of pop clips, which you can use a trim removal tool to remove those and a couple of 10 millimeter bolts.Before you remove your inner fender liner, if you have a marker light like we do hooked up to it, you can disconnect that now. So like I mentioned before, guys, this is gonna be a little bit smaller in size than our factory liner. However, it will be more durable in its construction. This is made of 1/16 inch aluminum with a black powder coat finish. So it's gonna resist any rust or corrosion while you're out on the trail and if any rocks kick up, this will be able to take a hit and protect your engine bay.So an added feature that you're getting out of the Barricade inner fender liner over the stock is this vent up at the front. JKs are notorious for heat soak. And this is gonna relieve a lot of that hot air out of the engine bay. So your Jeep is gonna stay cooler on the trail or even while you're just driving around in the street. Not to mention the vent and the inner fender liner will give you that off-road look that you might be looking to accomplish. So enough about the stock inner fender liner, let's bolt up our new one.So before we put on our new inner fender liner, we need to set up some clips and mounting brackets for two of our mounting locations. First mounting location will be right here. We have to install a clip. You can just push that on. So in order to install that, we need to remove the 10 millimeter bolt.Now, I would loosely install this so we can line everything up at the end. So to give you guys a better visual, we took off the fender so you can see all of the mounting locations and how these bolt in. So now we can loosely install our inner fender liner. So we can mark and drill holes. You can use the provided hardware to attach the top of the fender liner with two top mounting locations.So after all the bolts are attached, we wanna tighten them all down with a 5/32 Allen key or the provided Allen key so we can get an accurate location on where we wanna drill our holes.Now we can mark these two at our location so they can drill our holes. So in order to drill, we will have to take off the inner fender liner.So now we can mark the center of our hole with our center punch.So now we can take a 1/8 inch drill bit and drill a pilot hole. So now we can take a 3/8 inch drill bit and drill our final hole.So now that our holes are drilled, we will have to trim this outer lip in order to get our clip nut on. So you can grab a cut-off wheel and some safety glasses.After everything is trimmed, we can install our clips. Because this is tight, I'm just going to give it a little help with a rubber mallet and we can position it over the hole. So now we can install our inner fender liner.So because this quarter panel is in the way, you will be hitting these at a little bit of an angle. So you will need the provided Allen key.So after the front is finished, we can remove our rear inner fender liner.So now that our old liner is out, we can line up our new one inside the wheel well so we can mark and drill holes.So in order to mark our holes, we need to make sure that this is in position. So we can take our Allen head bolts and insert those in the two outer bottom holes.Now you can tighten them down into place with a 10 millimeter socket and a 5/32 Allen key or the provided Allen key. So after we have those two bolts holding up our inner fender liner, we can take our center punch and punch to where we are drilling our holes.So after we center punched these three holes up top, we're ready to drill. If you notice, I did not center punch this bottom hole. On the driver side, we're not gonna be installing that self-tapping screw because the filler neck to the gas tank is on the other side of this. So we're gonna leave that alone and we can go ahead and install that screw on the other side, but the five other bolts should be able to hold the inner fender liner up just fine. So now we're ready to drill a pilot hole. I have a 1/8 inch drill bit.So now we can tighten down our self-tapping screws.So that wraps it up for my review and install on the Barricade Aluminum Inner Fender Guard fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers.

Barricade inner fender flares
Not only do they look great and have plenty of space for shocks and struts but they are durable and very easy to put in, did have to bend the left side slightly to avoid rub when the wheel is cranked all the way with 33” tires but no big deal love them!Helpful (1)

Looks great easy to install but I’m running a 35 in tire and they rub on tight turns and I tried using spacers to clear no luck don’t waste you’re money if you’re running a wider than normal tireHelpful (2)

Nope.....Does NOT FIT a 2018 JK
I'm running 33's and I can't turn with these liners on. I now have to remove and send back all of which is a hassle. They look good but I'm afraid I'll rip them off with my tires hitting the under edge. Plus I paid someone to install these and my rock lights. I'm out money.....Helpful (3)

These look great w/ the smaller fenders, Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK). Instead of grinding out the fenders to fit the accessories that they send, I just drilled a hole for the back 2 and purchased nuts. I am not a handyman or mechanic by any means. Just follow the directional video that they provide. . I'm running 33's with a 2.5" lift and no rubbing at all.Helpful (5)
Will these work with Rugged Ridge Hurricane Flat Fender Flares?
These will work with Rugged Ridge flat fenders.
Will they work with 35" tires and if so do I need to modify them.
With the proper lift, you will not need to modify these to fit 35-inch tires.
Will these work with Fox remote reservoir shocks on the front?
Are there any issues with these liners if I run 33 inch tires?
These will have no trouble with 33" tires.
Will they work with the Barricade Tubular Fender Flares
Yes, these can be used with the Barricade Tubular Fender Flares.
The Barricade Aluminum Inner Fender Liner will need to be modified for use with a snorkel.
