How to Install Bushwacker Cut-Out Fender Flares on a Jeep

Bushwacker cutout fender flares are compatible with most Jeep models. The flares are ideal for Jeep models with off road packages and aggressive tires. The cutout style adds a custom look to the Jeep. You can complete the installation process in less than a day and with basic tools. The modification creates an open space in the wheel well for extra-large tires.

Things you’ll need to prepare before installing the Bushwacker Cut-Out Fender Flares on a Jeep:

* 10 mm socket wrench
* Grease pencil
* Tape measure
* Square
* Reciprocating saw
* Razor blade
* 5/32-inch drill bit
* Torx bit
* Screws

Instructions:

1. Remove the stock fender flare by unscrewing the bolts with a 10 mm socket wrench. The bolts are located on the bottom of the flare and on the inside of the fender. Use your hands to pull the fender flare away from the vehicle.

2. Use a grease pencil to draw a horizontal line from the inside of the fender to the bottom of the headlight. Make a mark on the line at five inches in from the base of the headlight. Use a square to connect the mark on the line to the factory hole in the fender corner. The hole is located above and inside of the mark.

3. Measure 5-and-1/4 inches inside of the base of the door seam and make a mark with the grease pencil. Use a square to draw a line from the mark to the factory hole located on the top corner of the fender. The line will match the line located on the front end of the fender.

4. Use a reciprocating saw to make a cut from the bottom to the top of each line. Cut inward from the exposed edge of the fender to remove the piece of metal on each side of the fender. On the rear side of the fender, use the saw to cut the inner metal using the new edge. The cut must be an exact match of the outer metal.

5. Use a razor blade to trim the splashguard to match the new fender shape. Set the Bushwacker fender flare against the vehicle. Hold the flare in place and use the pencil to mark the locations of the screw holes. The holes are located along the top ridge of the flare. Remove the flare and use a 5/32-inch drill bit to create the holes.

6. Hold the fender flare in place and use a Torx bit on a drill to attach the screws. The screws are inserted through the hole on the flare and into the newly drilled holes on the vehicle body.

Tips & Warnings:

-Make precise measurements before cutting into the vehicle. Take your time with the cuts as they are completed without a guide.

-Do not over tighten the new crews. The screws will strip the metal and create a loose connection.
