2003 liberty sport fender flare rivets

Does anyone know what the proper term is for the plastic push rivets are called that connect the plastic fender flare to the fenders on my 2003 liberty sport and where can I order them?
Thank you

from the flare to the liner I used 7/8ths push pin reusable rivets when replacing the non-reusable ones

Are you looking for these.

or this one...

"Body Mounting Rivet" or "Plastic Rivet" is the best I can come up with.

Heh, heh...my daughter just had a fender bender with her 03 Libby and the flair fell off. Do you know how much Jeep wants for ONE clip? $5.35. I'll need 7 fender clips...5 rivets...and 2 bumper clips. I went to clipsand fasteners dot com.

i blew my flare and inner liner off wheelin a few weeks ago, it turned out some one put them back on with all pushpins and they came off in some mud. it took liek 30 seconds to put it back together. my brother works in a body shop and told me it should have rivets i looked on the other side, its a combination of different plastic fasteners. i just went to harbor frieght and bought the pom rivet kit and some extra rivets and replaced all the pushpins with them. the pom rivet tool and some rivets was 14$

I bought this at harbor freight to do mine:

http://www.harborfreight.com/hand-ri...ets-97757.html

Seems perfect. I had a 25% off coupon so it was like $12. It came with enough rivets it the right size to do a flare. I bought a package of rivets too for future use. You need the 6.3x25.2 size. These were cheap too.

The price was great and it works perfect. The right size and you can't tell the difference from oe ones. Definetly worth the money just to have around.

I used my hf tool and rivets on Sunday. It worked perfectly and the rivets look just like the originals. There were enough rivets in one of the packs that came with the tool to do 1 maybe two flares. It was well worth the money. I'm so glad I got it. It is hard to squeeze the tool to pull and brake the pin since they are so thick and hard plastic. It did leave a tiny bit of the pin sticking out on 2 but a razor blade trimmed them down to flush. It wasn't really noticeable but I'm picky so I trimmed it.

I would highly recommend it. Great tool, enexpensive, and as good as stoch rivets.
