Hey, guys. it's Sarah with extremeterrain.com and today we have a review and install of the Barricade River Style Fender Flares, fitting your '07 through '18 Jeep Wrangler JKs. These fenders are constructed from impact-resistant polyethylene and feature a textured black finish which gives your Jeep some nice aggressive styling. These fenders are wider than stock, so if you run larger wheels and tires, they're gonna give you more protection for your Jeep and also keep you legal in certain states which require full tire coverage. Coming in at around $440, these are middle to the low end price-wise, but for your money, you are getting a wider, durable flare that allows you to retain your marker light as well as your fender liner. I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in approximately four hours. It is worth knowing that the rears were slightly more difficult to align because they used pop clips instead of the bolt of the front. But all in all, a fairly straightforward install. All right, so with that said, let's jump right into our install.For this install, we used a drill with an inch dri8-ll bit, an impact gun with a Phillips head socket, 7/16 wrench, 3/8 ratcheting wrench, a small extension, a 3/8 socket, a 10-millimeter socket, pliers, ratchets, and trim panel removal tool. All right. So the first step in our install is to unplug the connector to our marker light on the side or you can twist it and completely remove the bolt. We're gonna twist this and remove our bolt. Tuck it to the side so it's out of the way. Next up, we're gonna remove all of the 10-millimeter bolts that are holding our fender to our Jeep. Remove any pop clips that are holding the fender liner onto the Jeep. With all of the bolts and clips out of your fender, you can now pull it off the Jeep by just grabbing it and pulling it straight out. This is held on with plastic clips and you will likely break most, if not all of these, removing it. So if you have any intentions of putting your OEM fenders back on at any point, you will need to purchase some of those. But for now, let's grab the front of the fender and pull straight out.So if any of the clips are left over after you've pulled your fender off, just grab a plastic trim removal tool and you're gonna pop these out. These will get in the way when you're installing your new fender. Now, for the rear fender, we're gonna remove all of the pop clips holding the fender liner to your Jeep. All right. So similar to the front fender, you're just gonna grab this one and pull it off your Jeep and you are gonna break these clips. But let's go ahead and get this off. Any clips that are still on your Jeep, you wanna remove at this time so we can install our new fenders.So the next step in order to separate our fender liner from our fender is to drill out these factory plastic rivets along the edge here. Grab your drill bit and drill right down the center of the plastic rivet, and that should free it up. Once these are drilled out, grab a plastic trim panel removal tool and go in between the fender and the fender liner in order to remove these all the way. Once all of your plastic rivets are removed, grab your factory fender and remove it from the liner. You're gonna wanna repeat this process with the rest of your fenders to separate the fender liner from your factory fenders. So once we have our front fender apart, we have the inner fender by itself, we can remove this light and transfer it over to our new fender. Flip your inner fender over and locate the tab in the, towards the center here and either with your hands or with a needle nose pliers, pinch this tab and the light should come out. So now you wanna grab the small plastic piece, that is your light mount and it should be either marked a driver or passenger. So grab the side that we're currently working on, which is the driver. Flip it over and line up the tabs as well as that one mountain cab here with your light and pop it in. Once you've done that, grab two of these metal brackets and slide them over the cutouts on each part of the bottom here. This is where it's gonna mount to our fender.Grab your driver's side front fender and the light bracket that we were just working with and get it right in the front corner where your light hole is. You'll see two pre-drilled holes on the bottom and the side here, this is where your screws are gonna go. Grab two of the longer screws and we're gonna put them through these holes in the fender into the metal brackets that we've put on our light bracket. Go ahead and get your screws started. You may need to hold the bracket in place with your hand just to make sure it doesn't move. Grab your drill. With your first group in place, grab the second one, get it started.So once we're done installing our marker light, there's one more optional step you can do before you install these fenders on your Jeep. If you like the look of them as is, you can definitely install them as is, but if you're looking for the Chrome rivet look, we would install these now. Using the smaller self-tapping screw and plastic washer, install them right in this cutout towards the center and then you pop this plastic rivet cap over top. But if you're like me and you like a black fender, we're gonna install them on our Jeep now. Grab your fender and line it up with your Jeep. I'm gonna grab eight of the supplied hardware and starting at the front, loosely attach it to your Jeep. Line up the hole at the very front of your fender and get the nut on the back of your bolt.Moving along to our next hole, line up your hardware and thread it on loosely. Once you have all your hardware installed in your fender, we can go back and tighten them down using a 7/16 wrench and a 3/8 socket. At this point, you can reinstall your marker light. Line it up with the back of the light and twist in the bolt. Grab your fender liner and line it back up on your Jeep. Slide your larger washer over the factory bolt and reinstall them on the outside of your fender liner to the factory location. Grab your 10-millimeter socket and tighten these down. Now that you have your two bolts in the top of your fender liner, grab these metal clips and we're gonna slide them over the back of the fender liner so we can attach them to the flair. Make sure they line up with the holes that are already there. Slide your liner up and underneath the fender. With our fender liner lined up with the holes in our fender, grab the longer screw hardware and get it started in the hole. Get this hardware started and then grab your drill and tighten it down. Move on to the next hole in your fender. Line up your hardware and tighten it down.At this point, let's line up our rear fender and get the hardware installed on those top two bolt holes. Line up your pop clips with the holes on the fender and the holes in your jeep. Once all of your pop clips are installed, grab a 7/16 wrench and a 3/8 ratcheting wrench and tighten down your hardware. Just like our front fender liner, we're gonna place these metal clips on each hole before we can install it to our fender. Now we can grab our fender liner and tuck it back onto our Jeep. Grab your hardware and thread them through the hole in the fender into the metal clip that you put on the fender liner. Grab your drill and tighten these. Replace the factory pop clips, holding your fender liner to your Jeep.All right. Now that we have our fender installed on our Jeep, we can put it side by side with our factory fender. Really check out some of the similarities and differences. Now, right off the bat, you may have noticed the styling is very similar to our factory fender, but it's a little bit wider, it's a little more textured. It gives it just that slight more aggressive appearance than your factory fender. So if you're looking for the similar styling, you like the general look of the Jeep, but you just want a little more flare, these will definitely get the job done.All right. So once we're finished with our driver's side, you wanna repeat those steps for your passenger-side fenders and then that is gonna do it for the review and install of our fenders.

Barricade Rivet Flares
Got these yesterday and they look great. They are large so unless you have some wide tires/wheels they dwarf the tires. Guess that's my next purchase now. Quality seems good but it does take some significant manipulation to get the mounting hole lined up and with the rather cheap plastic fasteners included the holes must be lined up exactly. A heat gun or leaving the in the sun fro several hours will be helpful. Installed last night in about 3 hours and alone. Spent 1/3 of that time aligning the mounting hole using a heat gun.Helpful (0)

Poor Customer Service
I called to get more of the plastic rivets that cover the screws and they said that you cannot get parts. So if you choose to install with the rivet look, beware that you cannot get replacementsHelpful (2)

Not bad to install after the first one was done and we knew what to do, took about 4 hours in total including a stop for lunch. Love the look. Need wider tires now ;-)Helpful (1)

Not as pictured
While I love my fender flares themselves, I hate the fact that the circular reflector that is pictured is not actually part of the package. So instead of having a full kit delivered, I have just the flares themselves with round holes in them that looks ridiculous. Everyone should be aware of this before ordering or you too will have that hole because of missing parts in both front flares.Helpful (5)

Looks nice but difficult install
The quality of the product seems very good, although the silver rivets are plastic and don’t actually serve any function other than looks. The instructions that come with the fenders are not as clear as they need to B. It was a very frustrating install because I had to start from scratch several times.Helpful (4)

Barricade Rivet Fender Flares
Fenders look great. Front fenders were easy because they bolt on. The rear fenders took a little longer because they use the fastener rivets, and a couple of holes didn't line up 100. There was a 1/4" gap between the Jeep fender and the front end of the flare and the fastener rivets weren't quite long enough to grab properly. ** HINT** - use a heat gun to warm up the fender flare where the gap is a bit too large in order to bend the flare closer to the fender.Helpful (7)

Will these flares cover up a 18x12 wheel with a 35 inch tire
Thank you for your question! Without knowing the width of the 35 inch tire and the backspacing on your 18x12 inch wheel it would be hard to say for sure if the Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit will completely cover your set up! Please contact us directly with that information and we'd be happy to help you, our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
I have Lt 315 70 17 with a 4 inch lift just want to be sure. Will the Barricade Rivet Style take care of my tire problem of them being out pass the stock flares. 2011 4dr unlimited
Hello, The front flares are tapered to provide 12-8 inches of tire coverage and are matched with 7 inch wide rear flares, how much your tire sticks out will depend on your wheels backspacing and offset.
I am just wondering if these flares chalk(turn white) after a while. Thanks
The Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit is made of the material similar to the factory fender flares. Overtime they may dull, at which time you can get them painted or apply a cleaner/ finish which can bring back the color in the flares.
Hi, these fenders are wider than the extended bushwackers? I'm very interested in this product but I want to know if I cover my procomp 17x9 Backspace: 4.75 and 285/70/17 tires. thank you very much
The Barricade Rivet Style Flares have more horizontal clearance (stick out further) than the Bushwacker Flat Flares to provide better coverage of tires, however the Bushwacker flares provide better vertical clearance (space between tire and flare) in comparison to the Barricade Flares which is helpful when flexing during off roading. The Barricade Rivet Style Flares will cover a 285/70R17 tire.
Will these flares allow for more tire clearance than factory similar to the Mopar High top flares?
Hello! Yes these will allow for more tire clearance than the factory flares, unfortunately we don't have specific numbers for what will and won't fit with these, but they will allow for more clearance.
The hardware is included with the flares.
These fender flares will reuse the factory brackets. If you don't have the factory brackets, they would need to be purchased separately.
These front flares are tapered to provide 12-8 inches of tire coverage and are matched with 7 inch wide rear flares. This is compared to stock which is tapered just about 11-5 inches for the fronts and tapered 5-4 inches in the rear.
These will have 7" of coverage in the rear past the fender, and 12"-8" of coverage in the front. Due to variances in tire sizes and wheel offsets we cannot confirm if these will cover your tires and recommend measuring for clearance.
The Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit can be painted to match the OEM color yes.
We do apologize you are having this issue with your Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit. Please contact our customer service department so that we may directly assist you with this issue and help you troubleshoot! Our contact information can be found here: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
If the Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit are rattling, most likely this is being caused by either a loose bolt and clip retaining the fender flare, or inner fender. We would recommend checking both the inner fender and the fender flare for movement to determine which is causing the rattling. The rattle itself will most likely be caused by a loose piece of hardware, or a gap in fitment which can be corrected by tightening the loose hardware, or installing a thin piece of foam.
Yes, you are able to reuse your factory light housing on the Barricade Rivet Style Fender Flare Kit. These fender flares should also work with your factory front bumper as well.
