Jeep Wrangler 392
Hello I hope everyone is doing well. Would anyone happen to know if Jeep is offering the Wrangler 392 XR Fender flares to buy and install on the regular Wrangler 392’s? It seems like a good idea with larger and wider tires that most people upgrade to eventually.

Thanks!

Godanya mate! Harbor Freight has plastic rivet kits for a very reasonable price!

So 34 rivets at $3.18 a piece? Yikes! That’s twice as much as the 4 flares!!

Just ordered a set of 4 from https://www.moparonlineparts.com for $51.97 had to add shipping for $21.98. Waiting to see if the set comes with rivets and will post up once I know. Fender flare set description on the site didn't say and searching PN 6513482AA returned "No results found" on that site.

Im going to order a set as well, does anyone know if we can re-use the rivets already in place or are they a single use?

The plastic rivets will not be reusable, reason is, they get destroyed when removing them.
 
I am not familiar with the exact rivets used in this application but some are meant to be removable some get damaged some when taking them out but I've almost always been able to re-use. There is nothing special about any of them, if it fits it works.

Problem is also caused by the original installation of the rivets. As with aluminum rivets the the stem that is held/pulled by the installation tool snaps off when the rivet is fully seated. When I installed my MOPAR winch mount the front bumper crush zone components were also replaced. There are two plastic rivets holding each crush zone plastic cover in place over the fog lights on the ends of the inner bumper. The way I removed the old rivets was to pry them out which destroyed the rivets. I would think that drilling them out would render a similar result. Also be advised that the plastic rivets require their own installation tool as the 'stems' are much larger in diameter than their cousin aluminum rivets. I could not find an adapter for an aluminum rivet 'gun' large enough to accomodate the plastic rivets, hence my previous post about the $14ish Harbour Freight plastic rivet set. All I needed at that time were the removal and installation tools but had to buy the entire set which worked out as now I have rivets as well.

Does the set you purchased have the correct size of rivets?? I went to Harbor Freight and the set they had there did not have the M6.3 x 50mm??

The description of the MOPAR set that I read did not say whether or not the rivets were included but I am optimistic that they are because the MOPAR winch mount I acquired did include the rivets for the crush zone covers. I will post up and let the community know one way or the other when I receive the flare set and have a chance to take a look.

Should you be refering to the rivet set I got from Harbor Freight... Two of the rivet packages contain M6 rivets 10 of which are 30mm long and another package of 10 that are 20 mm long. The other two packages contain M5 rivets. I'm not sure that the description of the rivets on the parts.allmoparparts.com site is accurate as it states they are M6.3x.50mm (Typo?). First I know that there is a size refered to as M6 but M6.3 and 1/2 a mm long won't quite cut it. I found the correct rivets on moparonlineparts.com that are actually depicted with the fenderflares (item 12) but no size mentioned in the description and they are only $2.07 each. Check out the attachments. I'd bet that the rivets are actually M6x30.5mm and that the 1/2mm difference in length has no effect on their performance/usability.

You can usually get them out by pushing in on the rivet with a punch, problem is you have to be able to reach the back of the rivet to push the stem forward to seat it since the original stem breaks off on installation, plus it's not as tight either.
 
I have the order in for my set, however looks like they are on backorder until mid Feb 2022
