Hey guys, I snapped my studs on the fender flare retainers. If anybody has a decent set and are willing to part with them let me know, thanks!

You can pick up Crown replacement ones kinda cheap. Same part number as the Mopar part number. You can fix them too if you have a bench grinder. Make it much easier at least. You grind down the flat back part as much as you can. Put the retainer on a piece of wood and give a light smack to what is left of the stud with a hammer. This will push it out more for grinding down. You will get to the point where you can fish out what is left with crappy screw driver. That will leave you will a hole that you can double nut a bolt in. I did this when I had to remove my rear flares and snapped some of the studs. I am pretty sure I have the sizes I used to do this written down so if you would like them let me know.

Thanks, I really appreciate the help! I'll try your method, I was sourcing out new ones and it was around 350 for new brackets.

I got some if you want a used set. They are rust free with no broken studs. All 4 corners too.
