4X4 ICON 2000 - 2008 The DVD!
The crash left me with a few damaged parts.
Among them was a single fender flare that was slated to be replaced. The
dealer wanted $90 for one flare. It didn't take rocket science to figure out that
one new flare was going to be screaming "mis-match". To add insult to
injury, the Krylon Fusion paint job that I did to
refresh the appearance of my flares was not really all I had hoped it would be. This
was the perfect opportunity to replace all four flares with something a little bit more
After waiting for five weeks
for the body shop to get the parts and finally calling the dealer myself, I was told
by a dealer parts guy that there were "7 or 8" Rubicon flare part numbers.
While that may be true, I got the impression somebody had a babe on the other line
and I was wasting his time. I got on Jeeps Unlimited and posted a message asking for
a part number that was working for people with 1999 Jeeps. I got a lot of answers
and they all pointed to:
I ordered them, they came and
they fit. One of the good things the body shop did for me was install all four
flares. They cover that extra half inch that the 31's stick out and really clean up
the appearance of the vehicle. They actually make the tires look smaller and the
Jeep look smaller so in a way it's a "sleeper mod". I just wanted them to
cover the tires...
