Replacing Your Jeep JL Sport Fenders with Jeep JL Rubicon Fenders

It’s no secret that the fender flares on the Jeep JL Rubicon models have a much more aggressive look and provide more clearance for off road activities. However, it is possible to swap to Rubicon flares on the other JL models.

Here’s the catch, you’ll need to pick up a used set of Rubicon take offs (check eBay), or if you want to purchase new flares at your local dealer, you’ll need a VIN number before they will know what to look for you.

Here is a Rubicon VIN number and Rubicon part numbers that should help.

This Jeep does not have the LED package. That is not relevant to our needs as we won’t be using the OEM lights anyway. The non-LED flare is cheaper due to different brackets for the DRL’s. The outer shells are the same for the LED and non-LED flares.

Flare Color: “Molded In Color” – ie. Textured Black, Unpainted

VIN: 1C4HJXFG3JW159784

Part Numbers for These Flares:

  • Driver – 6CE73RXFAF (old P/N’s: 6CE73RXFAE; 6CE73RXFAB; 6CE73RXFAA; 6CE73RXFAD; 6CE73RXFAC)
  • Passenger – 6CE70RXFAF (old P/N’s: 6CE73RXFAE; 6CE73RXFAB; 6CE73RXFAA; 6CE73RXFAD; 6CE73RXFAC)

Once you are able to get your hands onto a set of Jeep JL Rubicon take off fenders, you’ll be able to separate them from the black inner plastic by following our Jeep JL High-Line Fender installation video.

    Hello, great write up. If I go from non led fenders/lights on a new Unlimited sport to non led Rubicon Fenders/lights, will the harness match up? I want to stick with the halogen lights for now. Thank you!
