You should be able to have someone local bend the tube and weld the flares for under what bolt on flares cost. The material alone on those is well under $100.

That is cause Iceland went bankrupt and his fiberglass manufacturer was not paid , the molds were taken as collateral then sold to notch customs. Whom is selling them and if his site says they are in stock they in fact are. One of these days when I have to make a delivery to a customer by their shop I plan on stopping by to check it out.

As far as my flares are concerned I am still trying to decide on what I want to do. I don't want to spend money twice so I have to evaluate overall what my goal for the Xj is going to be. there are a few trails I love to go on that have huge boulders that like to grab 1/4 panels and rip off flares so that has me thinking of going with the HORE tube fenders I'll order the rears first get them powder coated then I'll worry about the front at a later date because if I go with the napiers and rip them off I'll be in the same boat again.

Yep, that's right, Tom95YJ. We acquired the molds, but have also been making some modifications for a better fit, and using different materials for an even stronger hold. Come on by any time to check us out!

If you do come by anytime soon, you'll probably see we're in the middle of getting bumpers ready for sale, too. A lot of people have been asking, and yes, we have the bumper molds too, although we've completely re-designed the mounting system.

Anyway, don't want to hijack the thread, just thought we'd pop in and make our presence known. If you are interested in a set of flares, don't forget there's a pre-Easter Jeep Safari discount going on. Coupon Code "FlaresB4Easter!" gets you 5% off before March 26th.

Thanks for the post .. I check out your site and watch your video, I liked it .. I really do like those flares a lot, I wish you made them in a half size too.. what I mean is something that was a little more low profile and not as wide, like the big cut out but the same width as a stock flare.

Well, when most people are looking to cut out that much clearance, they're also looking to run som pretty big tires, and want the flares to stick out to cover them (esp in places like here in Utah, where you have to, to be street legal)

But then again, they're fiberglass, not plastic. That means modifying them is relatively easy, with no loss to the strength. We've had customers mod our flares to accomodate snorkels, and the like. You could probably cut and sand the horizontal portion down about 1" to 1.5" without affecting the rest of the shape of the flares.

that would be a good option. Lucy here in fl its ok to go flare less... but it would be nice to clean up the fender cuts with a flare
