"Generic" Pocket Style Flares

Are there any companies that make "generic" Bushwacker pocket style flares in 4.75"? I saw the 6" ones on Ebay from Planet Jeep, but they might be too big for my 31" MTs. Any comments? Anybody have the 6" ones with 31" tires?

lol I think there might be some knock off Bushwhackers somewhere. Like Rugged Ridge or something I thought I've seen somewhere before. I totally forgot who might have made them. Google it and I bet you'll find your answer.

made to order

West Coast Fiberglass made mine. Awesome job, and I only gave 180 mochachas for the set. Found them on E-Bay.

That damn Jeep thing!

There are a number of generic "brands" of knockoff BW pocket flares. (I have some on my heep - $199)
None are actually made by the company brand they're sold under, I've seen 3 'brands' and the paperwork lists some other company...

LOL, looks like Im not the only guilty party. The OP has a point. There are knock off pocket flares all over the place, the issue is that they come in 6" or 7" widths. I run 32s on a 4.75 backspaced wheel. 6" off coverage is too much. 4.75" would be about perfect but Im NOT paying $400+ for bushwackers. Any one else??

I bought some 6" bushwackers off ebay a couple years back and the were around $300, they've held up good, no fading. I run 31x10.5 and they fit perfect.
I wonder if a cheaper brand will crack or fade? So maybe the extra money might be worth it.

I bought the ones off of planet jeep about a year ago, and they are great. I also have the 6 inchers too. I can say they fully cover 31 inch by 10.5 tires perfectly with no over hang on the flair or tire. I have flexed them on a tree and they did not crack, not chalking or cracking at all. Amazing flairs, especally for the price
