Looking for options on rear corner armor/flares

Want some rear corner armor that has a flare and increases tire clearance. All I am finding is the EAG ones on Amazon.

Gen-Right makes these.

They can be combined with these for tire coverage.

Metal Cloak makes this stuff.

I'm sure there are others, but those are two very popular and reputable brands. Neither of them are budget parts, but they're not built like it either. I believe all of their stuff is also built here in the US as well.

Another option would be to run flat corner guards and use wider plastic flares. I'm running Rugged Ridge 7" TJ flares to keep my Jeep street legal. They're attached to the factory sheetmetal, but they could be used over a steel corner guard too.

Consider going aluminum corner armor and flares to save weight, although it will cost more.

Genright has really nice stuff, but expensive. Around the holidays, they have specials (July 4, Black Friday, etc).

It's a perfect time to do a rear stretch, if that may be in your plans.

+1 for CC Fabs - I have them front and rear. But they only have steel, I believe. Now, several years later, I wish that I had spent a little more money and gone aluminum.

I got the rocker and corner armor from BTF, then added tube for a step/slider on the rocker. Bought the ball mounts from Metal Cloak and built my own flares for the back to match the fronts since they don't make a comp cut flare.

Nice! Thatís kind of the same reason Iím selling my cloaks. They donít fit with 43ís, so Iím waiting on the ball and socket from them to make some that do.
