Not so far, but even if they do, Krylon is pretty cheap and quick.

I didn't see taking the fender flares off in this thread so there ya have it.....I took mine off and I think it looks better, not to mention if someone has a BB with bigger tires they wont rub the fenders as much if at all. $0.00...free is always the best mod.

Getting rid of the Decals on Visors

Quick and easy checklist:

1. Remove the visors.

2. Get your wife/girlfriend's/mom's acetone nail polish remover.

3. Get a roll of paper towels.

4. Add elbow grease.

5. Armor All it to return the nice shiny black color.

Or just pull the visors straight off of their rods and swap 'em side to side. Stickers will still be there, but you'll only see 'em when you have the visors flipped down.

You can stick baseball cards in the wheels so it creates the effect of them in bicycle spokes just like the olden days...then you'd be the coolest :wave

legality of fender flares varies from state to state. i think theyres a sticky somewhere about it. I know in NY you can get a ticket if your tires stick out past your fenders. But I havn't been bothered about it yet.

I'm 18, and personally, I like chrome. Not overdone, look at me!, chrome, but a little bit. I think it looks nice. An easy way to get the stickers off, if they are stubborn, is to just take a hair drier, heat up the sticker for about 30 seconds, and it and all the glue, will come right off. If you have screen print, and not stickers, then unscrew the visors, and put them on the opposite sides, then the stickers will be facing upwards, not down. I just took my visors off, and I think it looks a lit better. I always wear sunglasses, so they were kind of use less for me anyways. Pisses off some of my passengers, but it's my Jeep, and I like it that way

Rain X the windshield. Your wipers will take mud off the windshield easier.

When you took your fender flares off how good did the paint job underneath them look? Isn't there holes for the screws there too?

I think It would look good w/o flares if the paint is okay.. You gotta understand right now I have NO rust, I dont want it looking like an 'ol beater
