Smitty built pocket style flares

Ok so on the highway home yesterday my flare flew off and got lost. I guess the wind at highway speeds (65-70) was too much for the plastic to handle. So I called 4wd.com where I bought it from and they said they might be able to special order the one driver side front flare for me but I would have to call back monday, and I called smitty built hoping that maybe they will just backup there product and send me a new one for free but there also closed on saturdays. So here I am waiting for monday, do you think any of these companies will stand up to there product and send me a new flare with out making me purchase the pack of all 6 again?

thanks for letting me vent haha

They were defiantly on correctly, They start to crack around where the screws go through the flare to connect to the fenders.

Ok so I talked to Joe over at 4wd.com (where I originally bought them from) and he called Smitty built directly to see if he can special order the one flare for me, they ended up telling him they would call him back after they look around the shop for one laying around.

They never called him back. So I called them to ask them what was going on after 4 hours of hearing nothing. The guy told me that they will not sell to the public even on special orders and then when I told him my situation he said they will not even sell me just one flare and he said everyone els buys a whole new set every time just one gets broken. So after a couple more hours went by Joe from 4wd.com called me and said he just called back Smitty built and they couldent help us but he talked to someone and was able to sell me the flares for very cheap and even gave me their lifetime warantee.

I guess the reasoning to this post is to show how awesome the guys over at 4wd.com are and they will deff. be getting my business from now on. + they match any advertised price!
