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).

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.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Look pretty good, provide coverage over aftermarket wheels/tires
Cons: expensive
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Mine came warped and didn't want to fit right so I installed them without the gasket and drove around a week or two in the summer and then installed the gasket.

Problem I have now is that three of the LED's went out on the driverside. Customer service sent me the claim form but in order to fill it out you have to take off the flare to get the mold number on the inside of the flare and that ruins the gasket, which I have not been able to find anywhere on their site to order, not sure if they are gonna send more of the gasket, emails stopped after the claim form was sent.

Overall though, I'm happy, they look good and make me legal so I don't have to keep putting my stock wheels back on when getting my jeep inspected, a yearly ordeal over here in Germany.
