Installation Time: Weekend

Harder install than I thought it was going to be
The fronts went on perfectly, the backs were more of a challenge due to alignment to holes. Biggest problem is nutsert tool that came with it. I did mess up and had one or two spin on me and so I stopped, ordered the astro outsert tool that's featured in extreme terrain videos, and completed the installation. Nothing like having the right tool for the job. After all said and done... the flares are fantastic... really solid, look great, and the lights are a great touch. One thing you have to consider with hardened steel fenders is body damage. With plastic, you'll have more flex if you're doing some hard wheeling and bump up against rocks and it will bend and generally not bend your body. With steel fenders, the pressure will transmit to your body and you could have some painful damage.
