Two things of note.

1. The plastic stretches into white lines, so dont bend it too much while fiddling with the relief cut(s)

2. My toothy/pie cuts sit nicer in the curve than the huge single chunk I took out, lol

Everything about this just made me want to pull the trigger. Looking at your post history these are 35x12.5 on a Quadratec Rubicon 4.75" backspacing wheel?

I'm not seeing much info here about XR flares on a Max Tow fender. Anyone have fitment thoughts? I think rivets are in the same place but my Max Tow flare might overlap the XR flare?

Just ordered from AllMoparParts so I'll figure out soon if they work on max tow fenders. Local dealer wanted $38 each before tax!

Anyone have plastic rivet recommendations? I have several rivet tools so hope one of them will work.

Definitely looking forward to seeing how they look with the max tow fenders!

Here they are installed on the front of my Max Tow, waiting for another set of front flares to arrive and will do the back fenders.

Just overlaying the XR extension, I have a lot of rivets in the existing fender that don't align on the XR flare. Is this the case for all Gladiators? Are people leaving holes open if they don't align on the XR flare?

Can anyone upload a picture of their stock fender rivets w/o XR flares, I want to see if stock Max Tow rivets are different than non-Max Tow rivets.

The front ones should line up with the rivets pretty well... since they're obviously made for the front. Not sure if different on Max Tow fenders....
But if you're using front extensions on the rear (like most of us have done), you'll need to punch new rivet holes. The Amazon kit came with like 500 rivets, so I was pretty liberal...
I'll try to take pics at some point, but fighting a cold and I don't want to go out. Maybe someone else can do it sooner...

Holes for rivets don’t align on front as I’ve seen here or in videos. Looks like stock holes on Max Tow fenders are different.
