I just received an email from Bushwacker this morning and they finally have the WJ Cut Out fenders for sale now. I plan to buy them and combine em with a LSR bumper - should look amazing.
(I don't work for Bushwacker .. but with all the problems with Iceland)
Part number is 10926-07
They are for sale now but not being shipped to dealers til the 23rd from what i've been hearing,i will order mine after jamboree this weekend and they dont look "gay" to me,but to each there own,it's not like we have a lot of choices on WJ stuff as it is,i'm happy somebody stepped up,sure looks alot better then just hacking up fenders,some of us still want to keep our jeeps looking good too.
I think they Look great. I stand by the durability this product too! I know several people on JF have witnessed My flairs crushed up against rocks and trees and they Popped right back into form. well except one still has a little deformation. but I posted that video of my jeep dropping off a huge downed tree pining my jeep to the point I had to use my winch to get off it. I would expect it to.
On down side, I do a lot of tight woods trails. you must get used to the fact that you loose about 6 inches over all width you need to watch out for. Especially the rear flair. I always need to mirror check when pivoting around trees.
As for the Good, One think I can tell you. It would not take me to long to find a friendly police officer to pull me over in my neck of the woods for my tires sticking out past the fender prior to my Bushwhacker install. Again on the Plus, The Jeeps stays much cleaner too now. I do not instantly cover all glass with mud on every damn puddle I plow threw.
To all you haters, I am well equipped for mud water and rocks. And I am not Gay. But I am willing to learn. J/k To Each his own. I am all for the Bushwhacker look.

From Bushwackers blog in relationship to clearance:
The WJ Cut-Out removes 2″ of sheet metal from the front and rear wheel wells, and 1″ from the rear door dogleg. This gives oversized wheels & tires the clearance they need to move.
Based on the responses from our WJ community survey, we chose to create 1.25″ of Tire coverage from top dead center on both the front and rear flare. We designed up to 9″ of coverage at the base of the mudflap as well. The mudflap is also detachable for aftermarket rear bumpers.
The WJ Cut-Outs are made from our heavy duty Dura-Flex® 2000 TPO Material. TPO has a high modulus of elasticity which allows the material to bend and flex without the risk of cracking. This means that our WJ Cut-Outs can withstand high impacts without fracturing, even at freezing temperatures. TPO also has a superior resistance to UV and chemical solvents, which keeps our flares looking new day in and out.
I was not sure.. some people here keep saying KOLAK but their is no website for him. Just an email address. Seems everyone loves him here. My first thought was Quadratec since I have bought from them before.
Just got my Jeep this morning. :-)
