      Review & Installation Video

      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

        Easy blemish cover up

        Easy blemish cover up. When we got the JEEP it had a wrinkle on the front fender we pounded out the wrinkle applied a sealer to protect the rest of the paint to prevent rust. Bypassed the body shop with an “on sale $59 “ diamond plate body armor. Super easy application, great look

        Poor fit

        These are very cheap plastic that don’t really fit correctly. They also show them in different colors which I thought I had ordered them in Forest Green Pearl but they showed up in black, when I called they said they don’t come in colors they just show them like that so you can see what they look like if you paint them. First and last order from this company,

        Does not fit.

        It did not fit my 2002 Sahara. I tried to trim it some, but just made it worse. Threw it away. Waste of money. I give it a one star only because there are no negative stars.

        Fender guards

        Nice looking fender guards. The fit is another thing. They wouldn't sit flat on the fender due to the fender flair being up against the fender, had to do some cutting of the guard to make it sit flat. Took me around 2 hours to complete.
