JK Bushwackers

I give an A+ to the new Bushwackers for the JK. Every styling problem I had with the new fenders is solved with this. I would say these flares turned me around on the JK, and the rubi model with 'em is much tougher looking. The only thing I don't like is the simulated bolts that don't do anything.

They do look nice. Hopefully the JK version of the Bushwackers stand up better to trail use.

Can you be more specific about these styling problems? I thought the main difference in these and factory fenders was the simulated bolts.

Other than the holes/external screws, how are they different? Can't really tell...pic is too small.

I love the pocketed bolt-look - did it to my YJ - still thinking about it for my LJ. That looks awsome on the JK - just as it does on the KJ (Libby) Renegade.

The fake bolts 'make' the car.

I ordered 5 new JK's and associated fenders due to this advancement in total vehicular design.
