        Will a new grill w/ turn signals have to be purchased after tube fenders are installed?

            They look great

            It was kinda hard to get everything to line up and there was things that you had to cut and move inside the engine compartment that they don't tell you about and it took 3 hours for the first one and 40 minutes for the second one

            Can't be afraid of the Sawzall

            Very good end results. Didn't come with the directions, but quickly found them online. A rotary cut off tool will help lots, however I was able to cut everything I needed with a sawzall. Do t forget the led blinkers since this fender kit replaces the factory front indicator and runnin lights.

            Excellent value!! All Jeeps should come like this from the factory!

            Pretty simple install. The pictures in the instructions are a little vague but you can find them online and they're a lot clearer. The first one took a little bit if time but by the time I got to the other side it was a piece of cake. Can be done in an afternoon if your handy. But set aside a full day just to be sure. Much better clearance and they look awesome. Not to even mention the added strength. A must have upgrade!!!!
