Bushwacker's flat panel fender flares, with no curling under you get the appearance of a bigger lift, more wheel articulation, and a pretty sharp look (to each his own in that category).

Price: $580.00
Pros: looks great but will not last on a true wheeling jeep
Cons: You have to cut inner fenders on the jk's ( they do not provide you a template ) there is no upper support ( no hardware ie : screws or bolts ) except dbl sided tape to hold the top part of the fender to the body
Recommended? No

Comments: I should have read the directions before i painted the product ( because i would have returned them ) I do not like the way they use dbl sided tape to hold the top of the flare to the body ( the ONLY thing holding the upper flare to the body ) Every time someone goes to lean on my flares i cringe , i am afraid the flares will pull away from the fender. I can not see them lasting four wheeling the first time my tire hits the flare i imagine it will break right off. but then that will be an excuse to buy the steel flat flares i should have bought

Price: $450.00
Pros: Looks good, straight forward install.
Cons: None yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just put mine on over the last three days (few hours a day). It was almost 8 hours by the time I was all cleaned up.
Like others said; the black/white is backwards, and you can't hurt anything by hooking it up wrong.
Better to trim the fender liners a little long than a little short; I have one small spot where there's a gap.
The rubber gasket is finnicky. It doesn't stick in all spots; better on the rear than the front. The instructions say to stop at the 'tube feature' but go another inch on each side of all 4 fenders. I had about a foot of gasket left over.

Honestly, with all the curves and details of the JK body, I'm surprised they fit so well.

Pros: doesn't scratch looks sick
Cons: gotta make sure you wash ur wheel barrels also when washing your car because everythig underneath shows... but it looks awsome
Recommended? Yes

Comments: these fenders where a good choice.
they are slim and the material doesn't scratch.
it looks like you have a lift kit, and gives better clearence when offroading and need to turn your wheels on weird angles.
Awsome product, glad i went with bushwacker.

Cons: None yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I had to get these to pass inspection with 33X12.5's and needed wider flare and I have to say I really like the way these look and gives me more room in the wheel well

Price: $350.00
Pros: Tough, good looking, and they stick out just far enough to make me legal, what more could i want from a flare?
Cons: Difficult to install on already cut fenders, I had to drill a new hole in the fender itself for the screw to reach my fender. On untrimmed fenders I would have no cons.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They do everything fender flares are meant to do. They're as tough as i need them to be (I would be surprised to see one come off while wheeling) and they stick out about 4.5" I'd say, which was enough to make my jeep road legal (state laws require the wheel to be no more than 2" past the flare).

If your fenders are already trimmed though I'd be careful when choosing these flares. The previous owner had trimmed fenders with no flares and since i wasn't the one to trim them I cant tell you how much was cut off. But I got them on in a few hours (most of which was spent eating, taking smoke breaks, and discussing how we'd be able to get them on), I would guess that on stock fenders and basic tools it wouldn't take more than a good hour or so to get them on. What I had to do to fit mine was to drill holes through the flare more towards the edge than the holes provided, which luckily was just enough to reach the edges of my trimmed fenders.

I decided to rivet them on rather than use the little screws that came with them to make them a bit sturdier and because I have no plans to remove them any time soon. To install these you only need a screwdriver (or in my case a rivet gun) and a drill to cut holes in your fender, if I remember correctly.

Price: $378.99
Pros: Good tire coverage
Cons: LED turn signals didn't seem very bright
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Second set of Bushwacker flares that I have installed. The last one were the pocket flares about 8 yrs ago. These seemed similar, the hassle really isn't the flares. The problem is the nuts that are in the jeep's fender. Just give yourself a few hours and don't rush it. Been on a week or so and happy so far.

Price: $260.00
Pros: Look great and give lots of extra flex when needed.
Cons: Not the easiest thing to instal mostly because the OE flares are tough to get off, and the marker light wires aren't marked the same colors as the OE ones
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Wanted to up the tire size but wasn't ready to instal a lift kit. So I put these and a 1" body lift on and was able to wheel pretty aggresively. I got them slightly used so they do not sit as flush to the front fenders as I would like, this may be a con when it comes to the longevity of the product.

Price: $358.00
Pros: Extra coverage stops Jeep from getting covered in everything.More proportional to tires. Provides extra clearance for flex.
Cons: Makes tires look smaller, pain to install if nutserts are frozen.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This kit allows me to drive through a puddle without covering the windows and body with dirty water. Haven't bashed them into a tree yet so we will see what happens when I do.

Pros: easy install
Cons: none yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really liked the look of the flat flares and these looked better to me than the xenon's. The install is easy and straightforward, the side markers are a bit of a pain to put on(I wish that was done at the manufacturer). They make your tires look small.

Price: $379.00
Pros: Look good, have light on the side.
Cons: Some kind of plastic
Recommended? Yes

Comments: These in my opinion look good, have fairly descent coverage, have side light markers to keep them legal. easy to install. I had two problems installing these. They both were my fault, the first was that the sheet metal on my front end were bent from my tires rubbing on them so it made installing the front a pain. the second was the adhesive strips that they come with> i didnt read the directions properly so when the said to cut them and peel off a 1 foot piece, i cut them into 1 foot pieces, this made it a pain to peel all the backing off and now i have little gaps in between each piece. Other than that i like these fenders, my jeep still gets splashed with a lot of mud but that is to be expected and i like the way it looks anyway. They are a good product and feel pretty sturdy, i wouldn't try standing on them though.
