Hey. What's up, guys, I'm Ryan from Extreme Terrain and today I'm here with the DV8 Off-Road rear aluminum inner fender liners, fitting your 2018 and up Wrangler JL. These are gonna be for the JL owner that is looking to upgrade those rear inner fender liners for something that's a little more functional, stronger, and honestly, more appealing. Now, these tough aluminum inner fender liners will provide plenty of protection for all that debris that you're kicking up and they'll give you some ventilation as well. Now, these are designed with clearance in mind so they're not gonna get in the way when you're wheeling on those trails and they're made of heavy-duty aluminum, making them very strong, but yet lightweight. This is the perfect way to finish off that wheel well, especially after you've just installed a lift or aftermarket fender flares. Now, these are designed to be a direct fit and come with brand new hardware to install. They even reuse those factory mounting points so there's no drilling or modification required. Fitment is a little tight, however, we did get those holes to line up.These are reasonably priced on this site for a set of rear aluminum liners and at just around $316, this is not only a great addition for your off-roading rig, but it is a great way to go and they even come with a one-year warranty. As far as the install goes, I'm gonna give this one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter as you can install these in about two hours using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install.Tools required for this install: eighth-inch Allen, 3/8 socket, quarter-inch drive ratchet, pliers, preferably needle nose, trim panel removal tool or a pry tool. So, the first of this installation is going to be to remove that factory inner fender liner. Now, we have jacked our axle up and removed our wheel. This is not a necessary step of the installation, but it's gonna give us a lot more room to work with in there and it's gonna give you a better idea exactly what we're doing. Now, there's a bunch of push pins in the back so we're gonna start with those. So, you can use a trim panel removal tool or any sort of pry tool just to pop these out. You're gonna have three on this backside, so we're gonna do those first. So, next, we're gonna have two up here in the front so we're gonna do those. We have two up top so we're gonna do this first one. Then we'll do this other top one. Then we have one last one back here. So, after you have all of the push pins removed, the next thing we're gonna do is just pull this inner liner down some and try to get it out. Now, you do have all these plastic rivets that are through this fender and into that fender liner so if you can't get it off, you may need to cut a few of those off.So, before we get these installed, there is some assembly required. This fender is a two-piece design and there's this honeycomb insert that we need to put behind this triangular cutout. Now, this honeycomb design does have pre-drilled holes in there which are gonna line up with the pre-drilled holes in this. So, we're gonna take all of our hardware out. Each one of these little bolts is gonna get a flat washer. They're gonna go through the front side, into the backside, and they're gonna get a nut on the backside. So, we're gonna start with this honeycomb piece. So, you wanna place this on the backside and we're gonna line one of our holes up and then send the bolt through there, put a nut on the backside. So, once you get all five of these bolts installed, we're gonna take an eighth-inch Allen key and a 3/8 socket and we're gonna tighten all that up. So, after we're done that, we're gonna attach our two pieces together. Now, we're working with the driver side, so you're gonna have this DV8 facing that way and this honeycomb is gonna face towards the front. So, this piece is going to slide underneath of this piece and then we're gonna bolt the two together. We're gonna do the same thing that we did for that little honeycomb section. We're going to put a flat washer on our bolts and then insert them through the front into the back. Once you get that together, we're gonna go around and tighten them all up.So, last thing before we get these installed, DV8 provides you with this little piece of aluminum and this is to go behind this lettering. So, you can block out this lettering or you can leave this piece off if you want the black of your Jeep to shine through it. So, before we get these new inner fender liners installed, I just wanna take a moment to tell you a little bit about what these are made of, what they're gonna do for your Jeep, and how they compare to the stock ones. Now, the stock ones are plastic and they do a great job of keeping all that dust, dirt, and mud out. But if you're looking to ditch the stock ones and go with something that's a little more appealing and stronger, these ones from DV8 a great option. Whether you're stock or you're lifted, this is a great way to go, especially for those of you that are lifted. You're gonna have more of a gap in there between your fender flare and your tire and you're gonna see a lot more of that fender liner. So, replacing it with a nice, appealing liner is really gonna up the aesthetics of your Jeep. Now, these are made of heavy duty aluminum. While they are very strong, they're also very lightweight. So, they're not gonna add a ton of weight to your Jeep. These are bare aluminum and you can keep them bare aluminum or you can paint them to match your Jeep or any color that you would like. These install very easily and they swap out with the factory ones. So, there's no drilling or modification required as they use some of the factory holes that are already there. So, now with that being said, let's show you how these get installed and what they look like on the Jeep.So, we have a third mounting point on our fender that's actually gonna utilize this hole that's here. So, we're gonna take this clip out that's holding this fender on. So, we're gonna take a trim panel removal tool and just stick that underneath of there and on the backside, we're gonna take some needle nose pliers and we're just gonna pinch that together so we can get that clip out. Once we get that out, we're gonna slide that out of there. Try to not break it. So, like I said, we want this edge to go behind the edge on our body. So, we wanna make sure that we fit this all the way up in there. We're gonna line one of these holes up and get one our bolts started. So, we're going to use that same bolt that they give us in the hardware kit and it's gonna get a flat washer on it. Once you get all that hardware in, you're gonna take that eighth-inch Allen key and tighten everything up. Once you have everything installed and tightened up, you are done. If you did happen to take your wheel off, you wanna put that back on and torque it back to factory specs. However, that's gonna wrap my review and install.
