    These Rugged Ridge Front Fender Guards fitting your 1997 to 2006 TJ are for those of you looking to either change up the look of your Jeep, cover up existing damage, or add a little bit of protection. The front area of your fenders is prone to a lot of damage whether it be sandblasting while driving down the highway, rock chips, or scratches from the narrow trails.And this piece of armor is going to cover up any existing damage that you might have or protect your paint if you're still in good condition. Or maybe you're looking at these just to change up the look of your Jeep and add a little bit of style that it didn't have when it rolled out of the assembly line.This is going to be a piece that fits pretty well, will definitely change up the look, and add that protection all at what I think is a pretty fair price.These fender guards are made of a black thermal plastic that is molded in this diamond plate design, again, just to give it a little bit of additional style. These are UV protected, so even though they're black, they're not going to fade, crack or otherwise wear out when they're sitting out in the sun. And one of the best things about these is that they install very easily on your Jeep, but also very securely.These do use 3M adhesive to attach to your vehicle, but they also have a couple of screws that will hold them even more securely, so to stay put exactly where you want them. This is definitely one out of three wrench installation that won't take you more than an hour to complete probably, considerably less than that, but if there is a little bit of disassembly of your Jeep to do, so I'll say, right in and around an hour.Now, the most important thing to remember when attaching anything to your jeep with 3M adhesive is to clean the surface very thoroughly. That's going to ensure that you get a good bond between the 3M, and the body of the Jeep so everything stays put. Use a good alcohol-based cleaner to clean the surface of your fenders before attaching these, and you're going to have good luck with the adhesive. You also want to do this when temperatures are moderate, somewhere around 70 degrees is ideal. If it's too hot or too cold, again, you can have some issues with adhesion.Now, the first step in the installation is going to be removing your turn signals from the front fenders. There a couple of screws, and you'll be able to remove those. Then you'll have to remove the hood bumps that are on top of the fenders. Otherwise, they'll interfere with these fender guards. Once that's done, you can peel off the 3M adhesive, set this into place, and finally bolt up your turn signals back where they were from the factory.These come in right around $75, which is a little bit more than I usually like to see a stick on plastic piece. However, these definitely provide some protection as well as the aesthetics, so I do think they're worth to be a little bit of additional money. So if you're looking to add protection your front fenders and change up the look of your Jeep, I definitely recommend taking a look at these Rugged Ridge Front Fender Guards that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Construction. Rugged Ridge's black front fender guards are designed with toughness and style in mind. These guards are molded out of thermoplastic and possess a rugged, diamond plate pattern.

    Protection. These guards protect the area surrounding your front turn signal lenses. The UV treated plastic resists sun damage, keeping these guards looking great for years. Use these guards to cover old scars and to prevent new ones whether from the trails or the road.

    Accessories. These guards come with 3M double sided adhesive tape.

    Application. Removal and reinstallation of the front turn signals is required to properly install these guards. These guards fit 1997 - 2006 TJ Wranglers.

            poor fit

            The guards look good. they don't fit well at all. the double sided tape does nothing. the only thing holding them on are the screws for the park lamp

            Just Okay

            The fender guards look nice but the tape did not keep them in place. I'm thinking about adding some more 3m tape but they still look nice. Overall, I recommend them but they aren't perfect.

            Front Fender Guards

            Product overall is good. It could use additional 3M Double sided tape. Seems to be a little scarce on the amount of tape. The left one will not stay down on the top of the fender. It is already lifting up.

            Not a good fit

            The edges weren't cut straight. They don't sit flat with the stock fender flares so the adhesive isn't even making contact with the body. They're only held on by the 2 screws for the front turn signals. They do however look good from a distance.

            Doesn't quite fit on my 06 TJ

            Both pieces "popped up" on the top and sides to the outside of the fenders. Going to try some 3M tape and put some weights on it to make sure it adheres better. I would try a different brand if I had to do it over again.

            Extra protection

            I recently installed a stubby and wanted some protection on my fender so I bought these guards. They are plastic, but have a good look. They did require a little modification to fit. In my case, I used a dremel tool to cut 1/8" of the plastic from one edge, which was pretty easy to do. I also had to buy 4 #10 1 1/4" sheet metal screws to attach the guards.

            Thrilled with these.

            Front of fender was banged up and crumpled really bad. Used a hammer and pliers to rough it back in shape. Fender Guard covered all the damage. You have to look pretty close to see in between the Guard and the fender flare to see the metal was crumpled. I painted that area black and it is almost invisible. I am thrilled with the result. Other side wasn't as bad but now looks great also. Because of the huge deformity in the fender I used two small-ish "industrial looking" black bolts to hold the guard up top in the correct position. It looks good. The screws holding the running light in place help hold the rest of the guard perfectly. I was planning on bolts in the bottom but they weren't necessary. Jeep looks great. Time to install isn't a factor here because of the extra work involved. But still only took an afternoon.

            Extra protection with a nice rugged look

            I bought these to help cover the never ending paint touch ups from rock chips. Very happy with the look and quality. My only complaints is that is you have Bushwacker pocket style fender flares, the fender guards will have to be trimmed slightly to fit flush. Easily done with a utility knife. Install was easy and quick, with the exception of extra trimming.
