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.

Pros: -Simple Install -Quality product -LED lights -Looks Great
Cons: -Hard to replace light if LED goes. -Easily damaged (aesthetically)
Recommended? Yes

Comments: On the positive side, installation is simple and a quality product. Seems pretty flexible and will likely tear off before damaging the fender (to me a positive). They definitely look great for flares.

On the maybes/negatives, if the LED light goes, you'll need to remove the fender which means new adhesive trim from Bushwacker. Would be nice if the trim only adhered to the fender so they could be removed easily. They scratch/get damaged very easily. If you rock crawl or do decent trails probably look elsewhere. Perfect for my uses though. A 4" version would be nice too.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Allows more space for larger tires and because of the coverage keeps the cops away.
Cons: Flimsy, fasteners suck as does the tape supplied.
Recommended? No

Comments: I bought these to keep the cops off me as my rubber was extending beyond my stock fenders.
These fenders are for show only and will not take even a small hit. I'd say my stock fenders were stronger as I have pivoted off the same stump with my stocks with no worries but the Bushwackers popped and crumpled.
The only bonus I suppose is that the tub didn't suffer.
I'll switch off to GenRights next spring and pitch the Bushwackers.
By the way these BW's are the new series but still garbage.

Price: $355.00
Pros: Good Looks, Room for Flex, Flexible material
Cons: BITCH to install, attaching the marker lights almost took me an hour and I am ASE certified.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My rig had 6" pocket flares installed that I just did not care for... I got a good deal on these flat flares - $355 Shipped so I jumped on them.

I rated this product bad for 1 reason. The hardware was incomplete - Bushwacker shorted me the mounting blocks but threw in a second hardware packet including LEDs , no complaint there, im sure the LEDs are expensive. A quick call to Bushwacker resolved the issue free of charge but I had to wait an additonal 10 days for the parts to install.

Other issues are sharp edges on some of the inside parts of the flares that gave me a few cuts. The mounting tape also sucks ***

Overall they look great - just be ready for a long day of install, that is if Bushwacker included all the parts

Price: $450.00
Pros: looks good on my jeep
Cons: takes a little while to install
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Everything fit nicely and I did not need to drill any new holes. The marker lights will be a job to replace when the LED's burn out because it will require the removal of the front fender. And you will need a 6 inch extension for a ratchet to install the LED's. Over all it took about three and a half hours to install all four.

Price: $530.00
Pros: great looks sold feel
Cons: pain to put on took about 8 hours. the light design is poor because you have to take the fender off the change the light. Both of my led lights were dead on arrival.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love the look and feel. They take about 8 hours to install. No drilling and fit nice. I had to trim the corner protectors to get them on. The led lights I got were both dead on arrivial and you cant change them out without taking off the fender or cutting a hole in the bottom. uses double stick tape on the rubber trim to the body so removal would require a new trim rubber. The led require a long extention to get the nylock nut on the screw. A simpe redesign of the light mount would be nice. Everyone loves the look.

Price: $450.00
Pros: Easy install, includes all parts. Gives good tire clearance and makes your lift look bigger
Cons: none yet, wonder if the retaining screws will rip out.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install was straight forward with good instructions. Product looks good and handled four days of wheeling at the Badlands including clipping trees and slamming into the side of mud holes. They got scratched up but did not break and always popped back into shape.

I have a 2.5" lift, 1.25" BL and 33" tires.

Before shot.

After install shot.

9-14-10 update. I have used and abused these flares. I've partially ripped a flare off several times. All that was needed was a washer on the bolt and re tighten. I like the fact that they will rip away instead of bending the fender.

Pros: Great styling and relatively easy to install
Cons: Non yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just bought and installed these and they make the JK look great IMO. My 32's look a bit small, but then that can be changed too! The LED sidelights are well designed and easy to install - do need to figure out how I want to secure the wiring for them - the kit has a method, but I am looking at an alternative for weather, ice protection up under the flare.

Price: $350.00
Pros: I like the look, and they protect the body well.
Cons: If you switch between road and off-raod tires, they look a lil goofy with the street tires.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The install manual for this was well written and had lots of pics. My wife could have installed them. Not overly happy about the way the wiring for the LEDs was done. Comes with a rectifier and it is left open to the elements, so I relocated them on mine and sealed the connections so they don't sort out in water crossings.

Pros: Easy to install Look good
Cons: Nothing really
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Of course, the biggest problem with the install was getting the old flares off. Everything fit in the stock fastener locations and the install was fairly straightforward. They look great and I certainly enjoy not having all kinds of crap thrown onto the side windows. Took them out on a trail run and got an extra couple inches articulation over the old stock ones.

Bushwacker Flat Panel Fender Flare (6" coverage)
Price: $440.00
Pros: Good looks; Good coverage on 33x12.5 tires; Fairly easy installation
Cons: Cost
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I paid $440 for a set of these from 4WD Hardware. Some reviewers claim these fenders break easily, but I have had no problems. Older versions apparently didn't include the plastic spacers that go between the fender and the Jeep body, but the ones I ordered did come with the spacers (this may be why some older versions break). Installation was straight forward, but getting the old fenders off was a pain in the butt because some of the factory fasteners broke loose and spun when I tried to remove them. The fenders do look good, and the bead trim that comes with the fenders give them a nice clean look. Two thumbs up.
