    Did you have to do any drilling into the metal, or take any wheels off?

    The rear wheels have to come off to drill out the plastic rivets, the front you can just turn the wheel. Yes you have to drill one 3/32 hole but the self tapping screw comes with thread sealant do it wont corrode

    Instructions do have you drill 1 small hole in each front guard. You do not however need to remove the rear wheels as the instructions state. Just take a wire cutter and clip the back of the plastic rivets off from the opposite side of the wheel well. Worked slick!!

    I did mine wheels do not have to come off. Just use side cutters and nip off plastic ends

    Funny I didn't even think about doing that. I own a shop so taking the wheel off was no biggie.

    I installed a set of the Mopar splash guards last week and also did the wire cutter thing to remove the plastic rivets, but found it was easier to remove rear wheels when installing the blind screw. Mainly because I was trying to install it with a short screwdriver instead of a small ratchet with Phillips bit. Not a big deal since I was changing the lug nuts at the same time anyway.

    I used an offset phillips screwdriver on the rear with the tires left on.

    I need to make that investment, as mine seems to pick up every dang rock/pebble on the street.

    I have the ZL1's and these look thicker. They match the black very well. Nice job.

    Whats the price on a set of those?
