Are these the ones that allow 35"s without a lift?

What's the overall impression of these fenders? Are they a quality part? Fit and finish? Any well documented issues?

Quadratec has them for 607.00.

Might have to dig in the couches, raid the kid's piggy banks, and sneak a few bills out of the wife's purse. That Amazon deal is about a can't pass it up.

There is a few treads on them here. Just search for them. Most people, including me, are very happy with them and the fit and finish is very good. Installation is not that hard, just time consuming. If you rush the job, it will not fit well and you will not be happy.

Only if you want to reuse the factory inner fender.

I couldn't pass up the deal! Last time I did this was when they had the rugged ridge $200 bumper deal and that was a steal.

I never see these fenders for a price near this anywhere. No tax, free shipping I had to pull the trigger.

No drilling and the only thing you have to cut is the inner fender as stated by the others. You don't have to re-used the rear inner fender, but we did and didn't like the look without them. You DO want to re-use the front inner fender, just to keep the engine bay clean from all the road crap.

Just go to their website and download the instructions, that will give you a good idea of what is involved. On average, it takes about 5 to 6 hours to install. Not hard, just time consuming.

Hope this helps.

I've seen this deal in the past on Amazon. It's a great price.

Thoughts on installing these with 33s? Too much gap or look ok?

With no lift, you should be good to go. We have 35" tires with a 2,5" lift and these flares and the gap is almost to big, but perfect if you ask me.

Would somebody post some pics already? Actually, I have 35s and a 2.5" lift. I'd love to see what you're talking about.

With the stock wheels and tires the bushwacker fenders completely cover the tire. With my 35's (Nitto Trail Grapplers) and 8" rims (ProComp 7005) the tread is covered and just a bit of the sidewall sticks out.

This is due to a rushed installation and improper prep. These are the most common and popular aftermarket fenders.

No offense, but we sell those for $450.05 delivered anywhere in the lower 48 to anyone that calls in and good luck asking some customer service rep at Amazon any technical questions about your Jeep. The price for the 2dr version is a bit higher, but still better than Amazon.

Always ask forum vendors for a better deal than you find at Amazon or sleazebay.

Why are the 2-doors more expensive?

Less volume on those is my guess. Less orders for the 2dr means higher production costs due to smaller numbers made. Maybe?

Thats great that you will offer that price to anyone who calls in. But why dont you list them for that price straight up no bs. This is the one thing that always bothers me about the venders. Jump through hoops and you can get a magic price. Just list it for what you can sell it for and you wont be loosing customers to Amazon in the first place.

Because Amazon is violating the manufacturers minimum advertised price policy. You're not allowed to publish below a minimum price, otherwise they can drop you as an authorized retailer. This can be bad for the consumer because if don't buy through an authorized retailer and you have a problem with the product you're stuck with it because they won't offer a warranty. That's why you will see certain products on every site out there at the same price and why if you go to our site you see in really BIG letters at the top of every page to *call us for a deal*.

This is a smoking deal thanks for posting. Unfortunately for me, I'm saving all of my $ for a road trip in August. I also missed that front bumper deal too!
