I am not sure I understand what you are saying about the flares and guards. You recommend not drilling at 90 degree angle and reaming the holes to make things easier. Is my understanding correct?When installing the Flares and Guards know that will will drill the holes as close to 90 degrees as possible. Connecting the flares to the guards this works good. BUT, when connecting the bolts to the tank you will find they are at an angle and if you drilled the holes perpendicular to the guard and flaps they won't line up...save yourself some headache and ream the holes out before you attach them to the tanks and jeep. It took me about 2 hours to get them installed and everything cleaned up. Second side goes soooo much faster.

I did the trimming for mine today and was able to make it work easily enough without pulling the tires. Haven't tried to mount the up yet so we'll see how that goes.Just got done installing the flare extensions..... SOB! Glad that's over with finally. Last piece of the install is on and done. The instructions give you the 3/4"x1.5" area to trim. I had to trim a bit more than instructed. When and if you do this install definitely remove the wheel and you'll have tons of work space.
As far as I can tell, yes there is plenty of room. Not that the reinforcement is necessary at that point with such a drastic reduction in weight hung on the gate, but if you already have it on, should be fine.Can the rear tire carrier be installed with the Mopar Hinge reinforcement?
That was my precise concern. I already have it on so I wanted to know if I would need to take it off, that would be a pain because paint. Thanks!As far as I can tell, yes there is plenty of room.

which step is this? I’m going to start install this morning and try to get it done this weekend. I think you’re talking about:JLURD is right about the long bolt for the spare...I have the AEV Borah wheels and used the middle size bolt.
