Yes I have the quake led fender lights with no inner fender. It doesn't help its always windy here. I was driving 50mph into a sustained 50mph head wind with 70mph gusts of wind.Assuming you are saying you removed the plastic welded innerliner only and not modified the outer skin.. I have no idea why they'd fall off other than impact.
What do you have for a front fender light, generally all those mods come with a bracket that mounts to the front panel and makes the fender rigid.
I think it’s because the bottom corner of the fender isn’t supported. It flops around pretty good at freeway speeds.This is the third time my fenders have now blown off on a windy day. Has anyone else had this problem and how have you fixed it?
I will have to try that. I Was kind of wondering if thats what it wasI think it’s because the bottom corner of the fender isn’t supported. It flops around pretty good at freeway speeds.
I did the chop with AAL kit and they don’t have you support the lower corner. The factory inners have a brace down in that corner so I cut it down and reused it. At first I used JB Weld which worked and held up good until it met a tree branch on a tight trail............ so now I have 2 button head bolts holding it.
I didn’t want anything showing on the outside of the fender, but I blacked them out, they look okay I guess. It’s rock solid now.........
I have seen this done before. If you are regularly in mud, it can build up on that bracket, which would be annoying but not detrimental.I will have to try that. I Was kind of wondering if thats what it was
Once the fender is chopped, it's a one way trip. The fender underliner is a two part plastic welded part.OP, Thanks for posting. I have thought about a fender chop also. My JLR has a Mopar lift, 37 's and stock fenders. In very sticky mud, it builds up on the tires and rubs on liners a little. To date, it has never bothered me enough to justify aftermarket liners and light/brace costs. Now it never will. FYI, I f you, I would put the factory engineered liners back on. JL Rubicons have more tire clearance than JK's and non Rubi JL's. Like some say, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
The plastic inner fender liners in the wheel well can be removed and reinstalled, what we are talking about is the 'under' liner that is part of the outer fender itself.Too bad the OP can't reverse the chop. I never heard plastic liners couldn't be put back. As for me, I'm going to keep the stock fenders and money in my pocket. I can live with a little mud scaping once in while during full stuff. Here in the S.W., mud doesn't happen very often.
