Rugged Ridge vs Bushwacker Fender Flares

So what's the differences besides the price tag?

Specifically Bushwacker Cut-outs and Rugged Ridge All Terrain Flares. They look identical.

I've been looking at the same thing. I know the bushwhackers require you to cut out the gender and the the Rugged Ridge look like they do but Eadoffroad.com only says drilling is required. I'm looking for the same look as the bushwhackers without cutting my fenders...

Keep in mind a big part of the look you get from the bushwackers is because of cutting the fender to a larger opening.

I like the look of the flares but don't want that big of an opening for 31's. So same look just smaller proportions...

Proper positioning of the front axle is helpful. I replaced all 4 control arms, and did some minor trimming on the bottom of the flare to try to retain the stock look. The stock wheel wells fit a 31 perfectly IMO. I only have rubbing issues if I'm really flexed out in a turn.
