Nice looking Jeep. Never heard of Fishbone Offroad Fenders before. They look good and the installation is simpler than some I have seen.

Which paint did you use on them? How visible are the turn signals.? This type always look small to me.

I used color code Firecracker Red from Automotive Touchups. I taped off the tube edges, sanded smooth, primed, painted, and clearcoated.

The signals and markers are only about the size of a quarter... but the LED is very bright. I was worried about the size but they work very well. The DRL is very bright too. I'm happy with the end result and would do the same again.

Yeah. The two tone red and black looks good. I don't remember seeing that anywhere before.

What primer and clear coating products did you use?

With some fenders there is a lot of drilling and the removal of the brackets that the stock fenders use. With that approach you don't have the option of easily replacing the original fenders if you want to.

This installation is almost plug and play.

The Automotive Touchup site has clearcoat, and I just used Krylon primer (light grey) from the auto parts store. I figured the light grey would allow the red to cover better. The fenders only needed one nutsert and the rest used the stock mounting points with nuts and bolts so it was pretty easy and could be returned to stock easily.

1. Wish there was a way for one pic to populate multiple threads.
2. Is there a tan soft top club thread I’ve missed somewhere?
3. So glad I finally got the hard top off.

Something a little different and semi-unique to my area! Jeeps in covered bridges!

I know the area. :) We go through there when traveling to and from Delaware.
