Price: $150.00
Pros: Looks great Doesn't fade
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love these. I got them second hand, but they were brand new in the box. The guy bought them for his son, but his son wrecked his Jeep, so his loss my gain. I love that they are tough and do not fade like the stock ones do. They look amazing on a Jeep. I will put these on any Jeep I ever buy.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Easy to install and great quality.
Cons: Not very good instructions and there was only enough rubber tape for the flares, not rock guards.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These aren't Bushwhacker branded, but they are an identical knock off from eBay. I think the manufacturer is Prestige. The eBay seller was HeavyDutyTrucks.

Price: $400.00
Pros: Solid construction. Good tire coverage. Look great!
Cons: A real pain to install; especially the front flares due to the odd curves on the fender.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Although I really love these flares, the installation took WAY to long. The instruction are detailed enough it's just time consuming. Since drilling into the body is required you have to double a triple check before you commit to the hole. As much time as I took, I still miss-drilled one of the holes into a seam. This meant repositioning the entire flare and re-drilling the hole. The good thing about the install is that it is very easy to transfer the hole location measurements from one side of the Jeep to the other which really makes the second half of the installation a breeze.
Another issue is with the stainless hardware supplied with the kit. I realize SS is softer than many metals, but I had two of the screws strip when screwing them into the sheet metal. The threads basically peeled away.
Nonetheless, the effort is well worth it and there's no denying how good they look.

Side Note: I suggest trimming the rear sheet metal a little more aggressively than the instructions suggest.

Price: $377.00
Pros: Durable & a perfect fit.
Cons: Side marker holes don't line up.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought these flares to fit with the wider tires I had put on & to keep the slop from throwing up the sides of the Jeep.
Easy to install & they look real good. The only problem I had was to trim the side marker holes to fit the lenses.
The price is a little high, but what do you expect from Bushwacker ?

Price: $250.00
Pros: Good quality and fit
Cons: PITA to install. Take away quite a bit of tire clearence compared to flat style flares.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The rubber seal is a pain to get right during install. Also, if your old factory flares have been on for a while you may have some paint damage that will need to be fixed before installing these.

Pros: look great and I was able to paint them to the color of my jeep.
Cons: break a little easier than expected but not to bad.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These fender flares can look great on pretty much any jeep because of their style and different look they stand out compared to the oem flares. Also they can be painted the color you want as long as you do it the right way. I highly recommend these if going to after market flares.

Pros: Add such a great look to the Jeep body!
Cons: Nothing major, just prevent mud from getting on the jeep while off-roading :)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is the first thing I look at when I see my Jeep! Adds meatiness to the body and if you're replacing the old OEM flares, it makes it look like a whole new Jeep!

Price: $150.00
Pros: Covers wider tires and rims with more backspacing. Adds room for more flex and bigger tire.
Cons: Scratches easy, but doesn't look bad with scratches. You have to drill all new holes. Only attaches with sheet metal screws. Hasn't been a problem yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I DID NOT GET Bushwacker brand flares. They are eBay TAG fender flares and perfect if you like the Bushwacker style flares and a reasonable price. They do require drilling but are easy to install. They seem rigid but I have ran mine up against trees and they have flexed and not cracked. Also, they do scratch easy but don't look bad when scratched. I would buy them again.

Comments: When it comes to fender flares the hardest thing to do is getting your old ones off. I bought the Bushwacker 4 3/4" pocket fender flares. The great thing is there is no modifying to install the flares, along with they look great. Bushwacker provides all the hardware needed to install the new flares. Remember to check and see how much tire coverage you need. Trust me you don't want flares that are going 2 or 3 inches past your tires, it wont look good at all. I will add one more thing. I don't see this and a con but more of something you need to understand before ordering. Bushwacker flares have a down slop to them. So if you don't have a lift and you plan on taking it off road there is a good chance you are going to rub tires with the flares.
