Step 1: Prior to Installation:
Toyota FJ Cruiser
2006-Up
Set Part # 31924
Revision A 03-31-08
Step 1:
Prior to Installation:
A) Fit: Verify the fit of the flares to vehicle. (Some filing, sanding, or
cutting may be necessary to ensure proper fit).
B) Painting: (Optional) if paint is desired it must be done prior to
installing flares on the vehicle clean outer surface with a good grade
degreaser. DO NOT USE LACQUER THINNER OR ENAMEL
REDUCER AS A DEGREASER. Wipe outer surface thoroughly with a
tack rag prior to paint.
Paint flares using a high quality enamel, or polyurethane automotive
paint. (Application of a primer coat is optional)
If painting edge trim (not recommended), use a flex additive.
C) Performance: Using larger Tires may increase the area required to
turn the vehicle. Some Tire/Rim combinations may require lowering
bump stops and or installing steering stops to prevent tire from
contacting flare.
D) Exhaust System: Modifications may be necessary to maintain a
minimum 4” clearance between flares and exhaust pipes.
(Exhaust gases should not vent directly onto flares)
E) Metal Protection: All exposed fasteners and bare metal should be
treated with red oxide primer BEFORE installing flares. Spray inner
fender wells with undercoating AFTER flare attachments have been
completed.
