Re: ok mopar body kit install?

go to harbor freight and get a plastic rivet gun. they are like $10 and come with a ton of rivets. jeep will charge like $5 for each of the rivets. they install very easily, i drilled out the old rivets and removed them all and then i installed the new skirt and installed the rivets.

Re: ok mopar body kit install?

mine came with the rivets, even the ones needed to snap on to the inner fender wells. It's really a simple job that does require a rivet gun.
