Simple installation for anyone.
I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review and installation of the Omix-ADA seven-inch Fender Flare kit fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs. Today we're gonna talk through the installation of this Fender Flare kit which I'm going to give a very simple one out of three wrenches because these are designed to bolt directly in place of your factory flares without the need to drill any holes in your body. We're also going to talk about the construction and a few of the other features of the flares.There are few different reasons that you might want to replace the factory flares on your TJ. If you still have the original flares, chances are they are faded from the sun and instead of being black, they're more of a white or gray color. The flares can also crack if you rub them on an off-road obstacle, or you may just want to replace them with a wider set, like the ones we have here, to give you more tire coverage. If you have a wider tire or less backspacing on your wheels, it pushes the tire and wheel package away from the center line of the jeep, so having a wider flare like this will ensure that the tire's completely covered, which will help the tire from throwing junk up on the side of your jeep but will also keep you legal in areas where there are laws concerning tire coverage.This set of flares is going to look factory, give you more coverage and be really aggressively priced. This fender flare kit includes all six pieces to replace all of the flares that are currently on your jeep, and that is something that's a little bit different from some of the other flare sets on the market. This does include the small flares that go directly behind the front tires and in front of the doors on your TJ, where some of the flare kits only include four flares.These are made of a rugged thermoplastic material that is UV treated to keep them from fading in the sun, and as I mentioned before, they are designed to bolt directly in place of your factory flares. Because this kit does include all six pieces and also the hardware necessary to get them installed, again, this is a very simple one out of three wrenches.The first step is, of course, to remove your factory fender flares, which you'll do by removing all of the bolts that hold them in place. Now, this is the one area that might make this install a little bit more time-consuming or difficult. The factory flares are held onto the body with Nutserts that are installed into the metal fenders. If you have a lot of rust on your jeep, there could be a couple of those Nutserts that end up spinning, making them more difficult to remove.If it's one of the Nutserts that you can get to the back of, you can simply grab onto it with a pair of pliers or vice grips and go ahead and loosen up the bolt as you otherwise would. However, if it's one that you cannot get to the back of, you are gonna have to be a little bit more creative with how you get the factory flare off and get the new flares installed.Either way, once you have those factory flares uninstalled, you'll simply hold the new flares up to the side of the jeep and use the new hardware to get them bolted into place.One of the nice features about these flares is that you can use the factory turn signal and marker light out of your factory flare. Simply unclip it, put it into your new one and you're good to go. Again, very simple installation that will only take you around two hours to complete, and you won't need any specialty tools, just some traditional hand tools.Like I said before, these flares are very aggressively priced. It's hard to find for under $200 a set of all six pieces, including the hardware, that bolt right into place, are built well and are going to hold up for a long time. I think that these are a really good buy. Sometimes you do get what you paid for, and when a product is priced lower, you get a lower quality. I don't think that's the case with these. These are still very well built and a great buy. So whether you're looking to replace your factory flares because they're faded, cracked or because you need some more tire coverage, this is going to be an inexpensive and easy to install kit.So that's my review of the Omix-ADA seven-inch Fender Flare kit fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Simple Job NOT
The product seems to be of good quality and should do the trick once installed, however the installation rating of simple is a joke. Maybe if you did lots of accessory installs, had all the proper tools and had a hoist it might approach simple. Prepare to spend lots of time on your back under the jeep, trying to bend you hands in 2 different directions, using a box end wrench with the ability to make little quarter turns and measuring and drilling holes in the bottom door flares since none of the holes matched up. Also a simple instruction like pull the wheel well covers out to access the bolts.....if you never pulled out these covers and had no idea what body clips are then prepare to swear like a sailor. Also the washers with the kit are two small for the flare pre-drilled holes. I ended up using a lot of the original screws since they had larger washers. Also one of the flare light bulbs did not reach the flare lens....so theres another long accessory job. It took me about 12 hours to pull the old flares and install the new ones and that is with someone helping me 1/2 the time.Helpful (1)

Two person Job
Fenders fit but need to be bent to fit in the wheel wells. Works best if one person holds the fender and keeps it in place while the other person works installing the bolts front to back. If you own an older Jeep. You may need to drill out the nutserts. Best approach I found was 7/64 cobalt drill bit. This stays inside the bolt head and you can drill all the way through. Once you get all they way through the bolt you can then increase the drill bit up to a 3/16 bit. Soon the bolt will break free and can pull out of the body of the Jeep. Locking pliers are key to hold the bolt from the back.Helpful (1)

Wow, what a difference!
I couldn't believe what a difference in appearance the 7 in. flares made. Installation was OK, but after 16 years on my Wrangler, there was a lot of rust in the attachment hardware which took more time than I had anticipated. Anyhow, I am really happy and proud with the 7 in. Flares!!Helpful (4)

These are GREAT for 33 inch tires
I just installed these 7 inch flares on a stock 2001 Wrangler. The Jeep came with two sets - the original color-coded ones, and a set of black ones. 33 inch tires leaves your Jeep pretty well mudded and the rooster tails are incredible. Since I tow this Jeep, I really didn't want the mess. AND I didn't want to flinging any stones back. They fit perfectly and were easy to install. All the materials to attach them came in the box.Helpful (1)
Is the 7" measurement the width from the jeep body, or fender flare edge to edge?
I am reading a lot about the possible rust issues on old hardware, can you recommend replacement parts or ideas so I don’t go nuts!?
Do these come with the lens caps for the lights that are mounted on the fenders?
The lens is part of the housing, which comes with the fenders, so everything will be included.
My fender flares don’t work well together. The part that is the short extension will not match up with the front main fender flares. It leaves a gap/ shoves the back end of the flare up. It looks very bad. Is this a manufacturer mistake as far as shape or is it the wrong part?
