Price: $160.00
Pros: strong, lightweight, easy to install
Cons: some of the screws are kinda hard to get to with the way the tubing is done on the flare but they wont come off when you finally get them on.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Its actually the smittybilt tube flares for the rear of a TJ. I didnt think they would hold up to much if they caught tree limbs or whatever but ive laid the jeep on its side twice and drug it on the flares and even mounted to the body with just a few bolts, they didnt budge. very well worth the money.

Price: $150.00
Pros: They look nice?
Cons: Poor quality. Grocery basket cracked the rear left one and part of a tire on the interstate ripped off the front right one. Majority of the holes did not line up right. Hardware it came with did not fit properly.
Recommended? No

Comments: Save your money. Trim your stock ones. Use none. Just avoid these.

Price: $218.00
Pros: Look Great!
Cons: Needed to drill a lot of holes.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very few holes lined up. On the rears only 3 of 8 lined up (and 1 of them had to be forced). I did not like the mounting hardware that came with it. It did not seem like it could take off-road abuse. I went to Home Depot and got larger allen bolts with locking nuts (they now match the hardware on my rocker guards).

Having said all that. . . . . I do like them and they look GREAT!!

Price: $240.00
Pros: Cheap for 6" Aggressive Look
Cons: People say they break easily, Brittle
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My front left fender was broken, so I opted to replace them all with these 6" flares. Plus my 31x10.5" tires were sticking out of the stock flares, so I figured it was a win/win.
These are flexible ABS plastic and look pretty much exactly like the Bushwackers. I hear the Bushwackers are a little more durable and less brittle. Mine are glossy black with texture. So far, I have had no issues with them, but I only do mild off-road stuff.
My installation kit was complete and needed no modification of any kind on my 1998 TJ.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Looks good.
Cons: Cracks easily. Exposes scratches.
Recommended? No

Comments: The flares cracked within two months of use and I don't go searching for rocks to climb or anything like that. The factory flares leave big scratches as well and these flares do not cover these marks entirely.

Smittybilt Pocket-Style Fender Flares
Price: $220.00
Pros: They look good, But
Cons: busted easily
Recommended? No

Comments: I went mudding and got rocks in the tires. Pulled onto the paved road, a rock flew off into the fender, breaking it. Next time I will go slower at first. I did get another flare sent free from Smittybuilt after a few phone calls.

Price: $300.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: They're the same thing as the Bushwackers, for half the price! I highly recommend coming up with a quick disconnect system for them if you plan on crawling in tight spaces. They will rip right off, really easily. Even the Bushwackers will.
