Riveted fender flares

I've seen quite a few liberty's out in the road with the fender flares with the rivets in them and it looks pretty bad ***. All the ones I've seen are on the 02'-05' body style. I have an 03' sport. I have looked everywhere - amazon, eBay, junk yards, summit racing, smittybilt, etc. I can not find anyone who has these. Can these be found anywhere for purchase? Or can I buy front and rear fender flares and use a drill bit, and insert the flares myself? Is this the way to go about this? Any information will help - on somewhat of a budget but don't want to pay upwards of $1000 for them.

Good luck. I tried finding them myself as well, and they're virtually non-existent at this point. Might be easier to find someone good with CAD software and order a 3d-printed set the way you want them.

I think it's rather ironic that the whole point of them in the first place was to be able to easily replace them... but if you mess one up, where you gonna buy it?

If this is the type you mean, they are KJ Renegade flairs.06 in pic
Those rivets are just plastic hex heads.
They serve no purpose other than "to look bad ***".
Look for 02-04 yrs to fit yours. 05-07 are different,mostly the front I think.
Both are held by clips and plastic rivets to the wheel well.

I know someone who has a full set for about 3 or 4 years now and won't put them on OR SELL THEMů.

Hey I look at them hanging on the back wall all the time, someday I will come up with the right color to paint them and then do a major make over of the old girl
