Things You Should Do to Maintain Your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) Fender Flares

The fender flares of your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) let you go off-roading with total confidence knowing that your vehicle's finish is protected against damaging elements. Such contraptions are fitted on top of the wheel wells to prevent mud splashes, road debris, loose stones, and other objects from hitting the Jeep's side body panels. Fender flares also allow installation of larger tires for better traction and off-road performance, not to mention the difference they bring on the vehicle's appearance.

With all the benefits you're enjoying from your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) fender flares, it is but right that you also take good care of them to maintain their functionality and extend their service life. Here are some tips on how you can treat your Jeep fender flares right:

  • Clean the fender flares properly and regularly.

While 4x4s look tougher and more handsome when they're dirty, that doesn't mean you should keep them that way. Yes, it may not be fun cleaning it, but taking dirt off your vehicle is a necessary maintenance routine unless you want your ride to cause you headaches in the near future due to corroded components. So after hard-core off-roading, make it a point to thoroughly wash your Jeep YJ, including the fender flares. Pay attention to the underside of the flares as they are, naturally, the dirtiest. Hose the dirt off and apply cleaner on the area. Allow the cleaner to do wonders on hard-to-remove dirt before scrubbing them off and rinsing.

  • Use only the right type of cleaner.

If you want to use commercial cleaners and protectant on your fender flares, make sure they are safe for use on the material your flares are made of and on their finish as well. Remember also that the best cleaning methods and products for unpainted fender flares may not be the ideal for painted ones. So, before using commercial products on such add-ons, make sure you carefully read the directions and warning labels.

  • Deal with fender flare issues as soon as you can.

As you clean your fender flares, make it a point to check its surfaces and hardware for corrosion, dings, scratches, and other signs of damage. If you find any, deal with them as soon as you can to prevent such damage from getting worse.

  • Two Important Tips for Easier and Faster Installation of Your Jeep Wrangler (YJ) Fender Flares

In your Jeep YJ, you could back up that power with a ruggedly handsome looks by adding fender flares.

Whether it's the first time for your YJ to be fitted with a set of fender flares or you're replacing your old set, here are some tips that could help make your DIY fender flares installation faster and easier:

    Tip #1: Pre-fit the fender flares days before your scheduled installation.

    As soon as your new set of fender flares arrives at your doorsteps, take them out of the box and check for shipping damage. Check also the hardware that comes with them. If your ride is at home, it would be better if you pre-fit the flares the soonest to be sure that both the left and right flares suit the profile of your Jeep. By doing this ahead of the scheduled installation, you will still have time to return the fender flares to the merchant for replacement should there be any issue on fitment or on the part or any obvious shipping damage. You will also know whether you still need to drill mounting holes or if your Jeep's pre-drilled holes would suffice.

    Tip #2: Do the installation when the temperature is above 72 degrees Fahrenheit.

    You may not know it, but when installing several Jeep add-ons, like fender flares or soft top, it is recommended that you do it during a warm day or when the temperature is above 72 degrees Fahrenheit. This is because at high temperature, most fender flare materials are more flexible and thus, easier to install.
