Iceland Offroad?

Does Iceland still make and sell their products for the WJ? I really like their stuff but I thought I might have heard they went out of business. does anyone know? thanks.

Lately I've heard not very good things, and personally I am on the lookout for used Iceland flares & sliders because I'd rather not deal with the potential headache.

The wait periods are ridiculous. I had to wait nearly 4 1/2 months for my flares, and every time I would call I would hear the same thing. "They're gonna ship this week". If I had to do it over I would just save the money and cut without a flare or wait till bushwacker releases the WJ flares which are supposedly coming out soon.

a few guys in another GC forum are saying that phone orders are being taken without a problem but once orders are taken any follow up calls are almost impossible. emails dont get replied to and orders are taking months to recieve.

I'm not a huge fan of bushwacker flares, so until a decent looking flare comes out, Iceland will have to do. But unless I can find a good deal on a used set, I'll probably just trim/roll my fenders

I prefer the simple trim and roll, however the advantage of the iceland fenders is I feel I can cut a bit higher and still keep a clean look.

If you know what you're doing, you can make a chopped fender look factory.

That is why I just saved the ~$500 and the ridiculous wait times you and a few others have mentioned and just cut my stock fenders (my state does not have any tire coverage laws (nor inspections) or if we do no one enforces them ever).

I am pretty sure mine is cut quite a bit higher (3.25" cut all the way around the front and 2.25" cut all the way around the rear) than the iceland flares have you do. This is how mine looks. Older pics but I left my other computer at home with newer pics. BB (stock bumpstops and shocks) and 31x10.50s on 15x8 3.75 BS wheels. When fully flexed, the rear tires used to hit the rear fenders even when the sway bars were connected so something had to be done. This is what I have done so far and I am likely going to trim another 0.5-1.0" off once I get 33x12.50s.

Before Cutting (well just some front bumper trimming anyway):



After Cutting:

I emailed them awhile ago but didn't get a reply. The only thing they have that I would want is fender flares and bushwacker is coming out with flares soon anyway.
