Pros Looks Good, Inexpensive
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: I'm really happy with these flares. They are soft enough to bend under impact but strong enough not to deflect while going 80 MPH. These flares have a lip that protects the edge of the fender from road debris. This is a good product to buy if you are looking for a wide fender flare.

Update 5-17-2008
I'm approaching two years with these flares and they are holding up well. They haven't turned brittle or grey. This has been a good purchase.

Update 1-25-2013
I've been using these flares for 6 years and about all I can complain about is that they have faded to a dark grey.

Pros Good Price and Looks good
Cons Missing guide arms and washers were to small for holes
Recommended yes

Comments: Overall - they are worth the $149.00. The washers are to small and far through the holes and the guide arms/posts on the jeep side od the flares were all cut/ripped off. Had to hold them with one hand, hold the screw with the other hand, and with my other hand (get the picture) had to hold the rubber nut.

But for $149.....worth the pain in the rear.

Pros Stock look, 7" of coverage, strong
Cons Finish is like stock flare..mud stains show up
Recommended yes

Comments: This is a good product that has a good price! Durable..I stood on the front flare to hop onto the hood. At 7" they're really wide so they'll cover a lot of tire. Just be cautious that you need this big of a flare otherwise the Jeep might look like it has wings from the front. Installing was sort of a pain but that goes with any flare. Good product and after 6 months they look good except for some of the mud stains. :)

Pros Great Price, Seems Durable
Cons Dmagd upon delivery. The alignment posts were broken off. The front extensions do not fit up well at all.
Recommended yes

Comments: Great flare for the price. Got them shipped for $160. Major complaint is the front extensions dont fit up with the front flares at all. I am actually removing them and adding a rocker guard to cover the holes.

Comments: Good set of fender flares. Install very easily. I had no problems getting them on and they look as good as the $400 sets from other companies.

Comments: Replaced the Bushwackers with these. They look just like stock, but bigger. They've taken several hard hits and scrapes that would've destroyed lesser mortals, very please with them

Comments: Covers my tires just fine. Flares are flexible and would hold up just fine being rubbed against trees and rocks.

Comments: great set of flares, no cracks so far, fit was great, all holes lined up correctly, rocker pieces are useless and don't really match up correctly, tossed them anyways. Overall a great set of flares and covers the 33's perfectly.....

Pros Solid Construction, Fit in Factory Holes, No Fading after 1 year
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: I replaced the factory faded fender flares with the Rugged Ridge flares. They are well constructed and fit nicely into the factory holes with factory hardware. After one year they have not faded. They have held up nicely on many wheelin trips.
