Comments: My old ones were toast so picked these up, just a little cleaning here to there and they are still staying nice and black, no uv spots or anything.

Pros New and not faded; Inexpensive; look good
Cons Driver side front fit better than passenger, but still pretty good.
Recommended yes

Comments: Since I put these 'aftermarket replacement TJ flares' on my YJ I don't know how well they match the shape and size of the factory TJ flares???

Having said that, these did fit my need just fine. I lined 'em up, cut and drilled my tub, and mounted them right up. They are flexible enough to give without cracking, and they look much better than the factory YJ flares. With 33's the stock YJ flares looked way too small, but with these in place, the tires now look appropriately sized for the wheel opening.

My only two complaints are that the driver's side lined up with my fender a little better than the passenger side, but then again I have a sharp eye for such things. Most people wouldn't notice at all. Second complaint is that my full-meal-deal kit came with mounting hardware, which I used, but the kit didn't have any hardware for the sidemarker lenses. So I had to use wingnuts to fasten the TJ lenses on. Minor issue, but would have been better then having to improvise a solution.

My YJ is a garage kept Jeep and these have only been on a couple of months, so I can't speak regarding their fade resistance?

Pros Came with everything needed to do the install, and gave me the coverage i needed for MD law with my 3.75 backspaced wheels and 32x11.5 Kumho's
Cons Hard plastic that doesn't give at all, cheaply made, the holes didnt line up for installation, I had to bend a non bendable flare to just get them to line up as scary as it was it didnt crack or break
Recommended no

Comments: These RR pocket flares are CHEAP, i bought them from a guy that didnt want them because they were worse than his expectations. The only reason I'm happy is bc I got a alright deal on them. I had to bend the hard plastic flares just to get the holes to line up. Once again Rugged Ridge proves to make cheap products for an expensive price. Oh and the side marker holes didn't line up, and I had no leftover plastic to drill new holes....what a POS!!!! somehow I managed to stuff them in there, not to easy though, definately go with Bushwacker if you are looking for pocket flares.

Pros Factory look
Cons Bolt holes might not fit all models. They did line up perfectly with my 2002 TJ though
Recommended yes

Comments: Gave it the new factory look again. The only issue you might have is removing and installing...because the Nutserts that Jeep uses makes it so that you have to gain access to the area behind the bolt to remove and install (by pulling the wheel well lining down).

Pros Easy to install
Cons PITA to get the stock fender flares off
Recommended yes

Comments: These went on very well. Tip to get the stuck bolts out, take a crowbar and a towel and stick it in between the fender flare and body and apply a little pressure. You'll either get enough grab that you can turn the bolt or the whole thing will pop out. There will be a little dimple, obviously, if you pull it out but the new fender flares should cover it up.

Pros Look great compared to faded stock flairs, will work untill I upgrade to tube fenders
Cons Already scratched up some, and a pain to get on and they don't line up perfectly or fit as we'll as the stock ones did
Recommended no

Comments: A good product for the price, but if you are planning on just putting these on untill you can afford something else(like me), I would just keep the old faded ones on and save your money

Pros Easy installation; bolted right up without having to drill any new holes; great stock replacement
Cons None so far
Recommended yes

Comments: This product is not designed for scraping against rocks, trees, and such. It is for those who do mild wheeling and want a stock look.

Pros Look great, and the sides of the Jeep stay clean longer.
Cons Brittle in cold weather. Already cracked one.
Recommended yes

Comments: Installation was tough due to my Michigan Jeep and it's rusty bolts. Once on, they look great and provide coverage for my 31's that slung dirt all over the sides of the Jeep with the stock flares. I like that my windows stay cleaner longer.

A little bummed that one of them has cracked. The plastic can be brittle in cold weather.
