Go LED... Strobes are old technology. There outdated. There brittle a pain to hook up and draw 3 times the power...

I've got a couple questions for y'all....

- Is the finish a smooth powdercoat or is it textured? I wish they were available in bare steel.

- I'm running A to Z Fab sliders and I'm wondering how the flare would match up to the slider. Here's the best pic I've got that shows what is covered. Basically, it just goes up to the stock flare and stops so I *think* the Smitty flare will mate up well to it, but I'm not positive. Thoughts?


- Do the flares hold up fairly well to abuse or do they dent easily?

My plan is to just get the flares for the time being, but will get the rest of the corner armor later on.

Thanks!
Tommy

They are not shiny smooth, they have a smooth texture, they are not like grip tape.

I have not bashed mine yet so I cannot comment on that exactly, but I have stood on them so I could Plank on my roll bars and they held me up just fine. Mine are bolted to my body, I do not have the corner guards. I had to trim my slider because of that.

Keep in mind, we have YJ's, you have a TJ with bigger flares.

No worries, you may find some good info in here. A lot of Yj's run TJ flares of all styles and you may see an example of what you want in this thread. I remember someone mentioning they have the TJ smitty rear flares, maybe PM them for a picture with some spot references you can compare on your body.

Do you have the rock slider also. If so did you use the TJ or YJ one?

First two are YJ with TJ flares.
Middle one is YJ with YJ flares with 33s.
Last three are TJ with TJ flares with 35s.

Hope that helps. Not my pics.

Was there any trimming needed on the slider to work with the tj flare?
