XRC Armor Fenders- install hard?

I was curious who all had these and what you thought of them. Ive read the install was pretty tough to do. Are they truly bolt on front and rear? Would these make for a good weekend project? Are they still compatible with rear corner armor etc?
If you dont suggest these, what others would you suggest? Im looking for easy of install (bolt on), but tough as well.

Huh, weekend is what you will need if they are the ones I have and installed myself. After drilling holes in the body and installing nutserts they bolt right on. Fronts are easy rears are tough. Look at my avatar to see my fenders.

I love the fenders they are awesome looking and not a lot of people have them in my area. The fronts took a good 4 to 5 hours you remove the stock fender and have to drill out spot welds on the cowel. The rears you are comitted completely you will be drilling holes in the body and installing nutserts, those are fun. They took the longest to get lined up straight prob 6 to 8 hours for those. You would have a tuff time going back to stock for sure without some body repair though.

love the look but maybe they arent for me. 6-8 hour install time for me is a bit much right now. thanks a ton for your help though!
