Anyone make their Bushwacker Flat Fenders removable?

I'm about to install my Bushwacker Flat Fenders, and decided I wanted to make them removable. Has anyone done this? I was thinking of drilling 6 holes on the top of the fender into the mounting blocks below, and then using U-nuts (like the ones on used to attach the bottom to the blocks).

Anyone do this yet? I can't be the first to think of this.

I just use zip ties to put my flares on.

Cheap, easy, quick!

Are they the Bushwacker flat fenders? Do they flap in the wind when driving at highway speeds? Thanks

I just didn't install the gasket between the flares and the fender. I have removed them occasionally for tight trails, especially when I was learning to drive offroad.

Great thanks. That what I'm planning to do also, and just wanted to see what others had done.

My bet is you'd soon get real tired of removing and replacing all those screws real quick each time you want to go offroading. You're right to worry about how they'd hold up on the trail, see what happened to mine.

Jerry, thanks. Shouldn't take too long to remove them maybe 5 min. I'm only planning on putting 6 in the top, and I think there are 5-6 on the bottom. What flares are you running? I noticed a different type on your rig in a couple of pictures. I don't do as much wheeling as I want to, so hoping this will work out.
