"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.

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

SmittyBilt... and they're garbage. I'll laughed with joy when I finally ripped one off on a tree...

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.
