whats best fender flare for the money

I got tires on my project and found out tj flares on my yj are not going to be big enough. Need 6 inch flares. Whats best out there with out breaking the bank. I do know you get what you pay for but also think be first thing to break if I rub a tree or rock.

Metal cloaks don't break when you hit trees or rocks. Ask nick

How good does it have to look? 6" garden edging works well if you're not concerned about what others think of the looks.

These are 3" Hoodlines. They offer a wider version as well. I will be complimenting the rears with the same after I get my new corners installed.

Plastic flares are only half the cost and none of the protection. You have to pick your priorities on this one, protection from trees or money.

What is your budget?

Since this is all about cost it helps us help you to make an informed decision.

If you or a buddy can weld then C&C fabs DIY kit. Only $250, or less for a set

does MN require the tires to be covered? if so then the 3" flares won't do you much good, and IMO the 6" front metal flares kind of look like wings or a table top.
xenon makes a few types of 6" flares that are pretty flexible and won't crack like some of the cheaper ones. at about 400 a set they still aren't cheap.

This. You won't find a set of plastic 6" fender flares that will take a tree and survive. You'll be buying multiple flares, which will add up to the cost of a single good set.

Metal cloaks have removable fender flares, so you can have your 6" tire coverage on the street, and two bolts later have no flares at all for the trails. And if you wanted added protection on the trails without the width, you can get their rub rails that bolt on in place of the flares. They are also strong as hell. I can stand on my 6" flare and it doesn't flex. And they look badass.
