OEM splash Guards WK?

Anyone know if the OEM splash guards are mounted with any screws that go
thru a painted surface? I want to purchase them for my Limited, but if they have
to be drilled or screwed thru a painted surface, then I'm not interested in buying
them. Thanks for you help....

I would assume that the mounting holes for them exsist somewhere already. I have not looked but you could see if any info about them is on www.wkjeeps.com

There are a couple of holes you have to drill. I just got some rust inhibitor paint in the hole immediately after drilling, then used a silicon gel adhesive on the screw to keep the moisture out.

I wouldn't worry too much about it as long as you take some precautions like that...I ended up drilling holes in the bed of my old truck and didn't have any rust problems, but I did what I described above. With no protection, you will likely get rust in there since the splash guards are subject to all kinds of muck from the road.

Soldierguy, I believe we have the exact same optioned vehicles. By any chance
do you have pictures with the splash guards installed? I'm going to order up
the door entry gaurds, the front end cover/bra, and the cabin air filter. Still
not sure if its worth drilling for splash guards or not though. Would you consider
them a must? Its either that or I'll leave the front wheels alone, and maybe
install some 3M clear bra material behind the back wheels.
