As much as Cindy and I love the way the all new Jeep JL Wrangler Rubicon Fenders look, we’re completely dumbfounded by the fact that they have these huge gravel catching gaps between them and the body. I mean, of all the models made, the Rubicon is the one that’ll most likely see playtime off road and someone at Jeep had to of known that this was going to be a problem. Of course, what’s even more frustrating is that it doesn’t take much to fix this problem and automotive manufacturers have been doing it for almost a century now. What these fenders need, is some welting.
After being annoyed to no end having to phish out small rocks, gravel and coarse sand every time we went off-roading, I did some research and found a rubber seal that should work well as a welt. made out of the same material that you find along the edges of your doors, it’s weather proof, durable, won’t effect your paint and most importantly, it’s cheap. In this episode of the JL JOURNAL, I’ll show you just how easy it is to install and how you can fix this annoying rocks in the fender problem, once and for all.
