Best Fender Flares

Hey. In your opinion, which is the best set of wider then stock fender flares for the 03tj. I am 2" lifted with 33" mud tires. I want to upgrade to wider flares. I dont do much wheelin on rocks or in woods so I dont care about cracking etc.. I al leaning towards Rugged Ridge or EGR cuz theyre cheaper. Thanks!

Just got my Warn 6" flares in the mail. They look really nice. I'm pretty bummed about having wider flares, so I wanted the best looking pair I could get. It's subtle, but to me they look better. All the cheaper ones are 7" --just too wide for me. I hear even the EGR 6.5" actually hang out 7". Got a price match through 4wd.com and got a $50 gift certificate (I think due to the Warn flares alone, but I ordered other stuff wth them).

The D35: 60% of the time, it breaks every time.

4Wheel Parts has Generic flares that look like bushwackers for $199. I put them on and thay look nice...but seem flimsy...might break on the trail. Not a great "match" either as they don't follow the exact lines of the stock flares. The rubber stripping that goes between the flare and the body was also a b***h. But for the money and stand 10 feet away...you do the math.

I had the same problem, so I ordered a pair of knock-off bushwacker flares off of ebay for $150. They only lasted about 2 months and then the back flares kept coming off. I upgraded to the Warn 6" flares ($400) and was very pleased with them. They use all the factory mounting hardware, so keep it! They also look just like stock, except wider. Warn is a good choice!

I really like my 6"Warn Flares also. I used to think the Warn Flares looked slightly too wide until the JK's came out. Those things blow everything out of the water sizewise and now my Warns look normal
