Anybody recognize these?

Trying to identify the manufacturer of the front bumper and fender flares on our new(to is) JK.
Flares are metal. Iíve found similar bumpers but they have the hoop welded on, this one is bolted.
Any ideas?

I think those are just the stock fender flares (hacked to bits)?!?

carlsflh,
thanks. I think you are correct. Not sure how I didn't find that listing earlier, I spent hours searching. I'm trying to find reviews from anyone who has installed and used a winch on this bumper. It has mounting holes for a winch and fairlead, but seeing how thin the metal is (5/32"), I have doubts about how well it would hold up to a tough pull?


JoonHoss,
The flares are most definitely not "cut stockers". They are metal, and have a decently rolled edge. They could be custom, but given that most everything else that the P.O. put on it seems to have come from amazon/ebay, I doubt they spend the $$$ on custom flares.

Ok, hard to tell from the single pic (on phone screen)!

Do you plan to keep them? No offense meant if you do, I've just never understood the allure of that size/ style for anything used off-road.

I'd ditch the flares all together, but I have to keep reminding myself that this is my wife's jeep, and that she has the final say on "the look" of the jeep. At the moment, she wants me to pull them off, sand and repaint, and then reinstall them. There are several other issues that will be addressed first though. One is the rear bumper/tailgate. The P.O. had the spare 35 mounted to the gate with one of those extension things. The extra weight has just about killed the stock gate hinges, and the stock bumper has a pretty good sized "whoops" on the passenger side. I'm currently shopping for a replacement bumper/ tire carrier combo, and some new gate hinges. This weekends plans include an oil change, and replacing a leaking brake hose. Then next weekend will probably be trans, T-case, and axle fluids.

Get the teraflex carrier which has heavy duty hinges that replaces the own ones. Pricey but it is an extremely well made product

Too many mods to list. Too awesome to sell.
