Facebook listed the following as the set up for this WJ.

Build information:
Bushwacker Cut-Out Flares
BDS Suspension 4" Lift
Mickey Thompson Baja Claws (305x65R17)
Mickey Thompson Classic Lock Black Wheels
Trail Ready Base Bumper
WARN VR8000 Winch

Did they use spacers to get this stance or is that simply the backspacing on the rims that gives the WJ in the picture below it's wide stance?

Does anyone know if spacers were used in the picture above in post #107?

These are really nice looking. Might have to look into getting a set.

Well since most of the ones that have been out for a while are around 500, would expect them to be at least that much probably more since its a 3 pcs rear and they need to recoup R&D in the first round of sales.

That's why I was thinking we get a list of people together and maybe some one could check on a group buy.
Could someone who has a desktop start a poll ? Something like "Who would buy Bushwacker fender flares for their WJ ?"

If they price these at $500+ for plastic flares then they aren't gonna get much business. There is no way I would drop $500 on them. I spent $340 on my XJ bushwacker flares and felt that I WAY overpaid on them. They are thin brittle plastic and nothing more. I destroyed my XJ flares on the Rubicon and had to rebuild them by covering the back side of each one with fiberglass while I held the broked pieces together on the front with duct tape. What a joke. For $340 I was not impressed. At $500+ they better have some strength and flexibility to them or its a HUGE waste of money. If they price them much more then the XJ flares then I'm gonna pass.

Before we get a pole going we need to get the facts so people can make an educated decision. We need to get someone to contact bushwacker first and get a general cost for a group buy. Once we have the number we can then pole people for interest.

I would only assume they would need a number of interested parties to even begin talking to anyone about such a thing. That is why I suggested a poll. Also I dont really think they are going to change much from the design we have seen. They asked us (the WJ guys) what we wanted, and there has been a very positive response to what they produced.

One comment here mentioned development of front flares that lined up with a stock bumper, so these things could still be many months out from production. That combined with the fact that we have no ballpark price and I think any poll results are going to be very skewed. I think most guys would voted based on looks rather than if they would really put the money down.
