The liner has those plastic rivers holding it in and the ones that are on the outside edge are not reusable, and kinda pricey they honestly could have made it easier to get to without haveing to remove the fender liner and have to break the rivets, I surly don’t want to have to remove the whole fender flare to keep from breaking those non reusable rivets that hold the fender liner to the fender flare
Watch the video, closely. He is removing the fender flare. There is no rivets involved, so no rivet breakage. Yes, if you remove the liner itself the rivets get destroyed and have to be replaced.
The white clips that secure the fender flare, apparently are very durable. They cost $.65 if you were to break one and are easily acquired.
Yup, would be nice if the Aux battery was right in your face so to speak ... easier to access.
this post is unnecessarily detailed@WranglerMan
I hear ya. I'm more concerned on how easy or hard, it is to get the fender flare back on. In the video, re-install of the flare, is conveniently not shown.
I did help a local friend pull a JL flare. It did come off easy. I was taking a dump when he re-installed it. He did not say getting the flare back on, was an issue.
@Blown7Im not sure on the JL but other Jeeps have a fuse (IOD if I remember correctly) you can pull to disable the can bus always awake for extended storage.. my SRT Jeep has it.
Maybe a little detective work on the fuse panels may save all these dead battery stories.
That’s not a good thing, on a positive note after they replaced my main battery ESS has been spot on even though I hate but I am letting it do it’s thing, my Deltran battery tender will be here Sunday and when I get off my long rotation of nights I am going to put on the quick connector and let the tender tendSo here’s an update. The dealer has had my Jeep for 2 days and I’m told their most experienced guy is working on it. So far, they have no idea what caused the Jeep to die in the road and not restart. They said both batteries and the ess control module check out fine. They are stumped and my Jeep won’t run.
