Looking to get some new fenders/flares whatever you wanna call them. I'm leaning towards something like crusher flares or metal cloak but the price might be right on a set of bushwhackers.
Just looking for some opinions on basically all aftermarket fenders.
The plastic Fender Flares
can bend and flex without being damaged when you rub them on a tree which is nice. The problem is when you bend them too far and they break. The metal will of course not bend and the finish can be damaged when you rub them on things. Being solid, they will also transfer a hit to the tub/frame where the plastic flares will absorb that hit. The benefit of metal is of course that they won't break.
Let me know if you decide to either direction and I can get you a quote!
