Jeep Wrangler TJ Fender
How to Take Care of Your Jeep Wrangler TJ Fender
The Jeep Wrangler TJ fender combines the classic lines of Jeeps from yesteryears with more modern materials that are proven to be lightweight yet tough. This supports the character Jeep has been trying to preserve with its off-road ready models like the Wrangler TJ. With its design, the Wrangler TJ fenders can accommodate bigger tires and lift with only the need to attach wider fender flares. Being mounted where the nitty gritty things in the Jeep happen, the fenders become one of the first panels to take the flak from road debris. While some of the debris is contained within the underside, others are able to make their way to the surface. Here are some tips on how to take care of your Jeep Wrangler TJ fender. Read along.
- If you can, avoid driving through terrains full of debris that can harm your fenders.
Somehow, this goes against the conventional rules of off-roading. But we beg to differ. Part of what we believe is responsible off-roading is being able to determine if the path you are about to take is safe enough for passage. By being selective with the paths you will be driving through, you reduce the risk of your Wrangler's fenders hitting hazards and debris. In effect, you minimize the possible damage that your fenders can take. The longer they stay with minimal damage, the longer you can expect them to last.
- Check the Wrangler's fender mounts and underside regularly.
Part of your upkeep is making regular checks on the fender mounts and underside. Since the underside is the area exposed to the regular hits, then you have to make sure it is in good condition. Exposure to debris and other hazards can cause chips, fender benders, and other damage that can negatively affect its purpose.
- Rinse with water to loosen dirt.
It is important that you direct a steady stream of water on each fender's surface and underside. The water should be able to loosen the dirt and grime sticking on your fenders. This goes especially for the underside where the mud and other particles would have accumulated over time.
- Scrub using sponge and brush.
Use a sponge soaked in a car shampoo solution to scrub of the dirt on the surface. Do so in a gentle motion and repeat if necessary. For the underside filled with stubborn dirt and grime, use a brush and rub the surface more vigorously. Direct a steady stream of water once in a while if necessary.
