I offroad on narrow trails and want a set of fender deletes that will quicky snap on/off rather than dealing with lots of screws each time I wheel. Does anyone have suggestions?

I'm missing something...why would one remove the fender deletes to wheel? The deletes offer some protection to the exposed panel.

I think they are looking to snap something on for a cleaner look, when they go off roading and remove their OEM fender flares.

I don't really know why you wouldn't just run without the fenders and have it left exposed? Adding the fender deletes offer pretty much no additional protection, or very little at least.

Never thought anyone would do a temporary delete for looks while wheeling but stranger things happen I suppose.

Yes. The flares stay on except for off roading on narrow trails. The reason for the flare deletes is purely aesthetic when taking pictures- I prefer having black plastic to the paint just ending.

The easy snap on/off feature is just to save me time doing it frequently.

You could always paint the fender so it's hidden when the flares are on but gives you the black contrast when they're off. Or use the fender as a template and make your own delete filler out of ABS. Two for each opening and then use Dzus to pull them together or quick release interior fasteners. Won't be robust so carry a bag of them with you.

I second the "paint it black" option. You'll only be able to tell in pictures unless people are really examining them
