Comments: Good look, no drill necessary on my TJ. Warped a bit in the winter however . . .

*****UPDATE*****
These P.O.S. flares are disintegrating before my very eyes! Can't wait to replace them with Warn Trail Flares.

Pros They look good, But
Cons busted easily
Recommended no

Comments: I went mudding and got rocks in the tires. Pulled onto the paved road, a rock flew off into the fender, breaking it. Next time I will go slower at first. I did get another flare sent free from Smittybuilt after a few phone calls.

Pros Looks good.
Cons Cracks easily. Exposes scratches.
Recommended no

Comments: The flares cracked within two months of use and I don't go searching for rocks to climb or anything like that. The factory flares leave big scratches as well and these flares do not cover these marks entirely.

Pros Cheap for 6" Aggressive Look
Cons People say they break easily, Brittle
Recommended yes

Comments: My front left fender was broken, so I opted to replace them all with these 6" flares. Plus my 31x10.5" tires were sticking out of the stock flares, so I figured it was a win/win.
These are flexible ABS plastic and look pretty much exactly like the Bushwackers. I hear the Bushwackers are a little more durable and less brittle. Mine are glossy black with texture. So far, I have had no issues with them, but I only do mild off-road stuff.
My installation kit was complete and needed no modification of any kind on my 1998 TJ.

Pros Look Great!
Cons Needed to drill a lot of holes.
Recommended yes

Comments: Very few holes lined up. On the rears only 3 of 8 lined up (and 1 of them had to be forced). I did not like the mounting hardware that came with it. It did not seem like it could take off-road abuse. I went to Home Depot and got larger allen bolts with locking nuts (they now match the hardware on my rocker guards).

Having said all that. . . . . I do like them and they look GREAT!!

Pros They look nice?
Cons Poor quality. Grocery basket cracked the rear left one and part of a tire on the interstate ripped off the front right one. Majority of the holes did not line up right. Hardware it came with did not fit properly.
Recommended no

Comments: Save your money. Trim your stock ones. Use none. Just avoid these.
