Question for thoes of you with flat fenders!!

I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of bushwhacker flat fenders but before I do I have a few questions.

1) do they help keep the side of your jeep clean? I'm running 33X12.5 duratrac's on tko's and real soon I'll be stepping up to 35's and is seems like no matter where I go or what I drive over it ends up all over my doors "if there on of course" or my interior.

2) how do they look with stock bumpers? Pics would be great!!

3) how was the install?

4) any regrets

Thx in advance.

install was not too bad. i had a neighbor with much more mechanical ability than myself. so that was a plus. with the 35"s everything gets kicked up on the sides. but oh well, it looks bad ass! and i have no regrets. looks great with 35"s

Install wasn't too bad (just time consuming), definitely read the existing thread with helpful tips. Took 3 of us around 5 hours to do.

I honestly prefer the look of the PSC crusher fenders and they're a lot more durable, however, they're pretty expensive. They're still on my list of future mods, we'll see if it happens :P

They do a decent job keeping sides clean. I prefer the Pocket Fenders so these are coming off next week.

I installed the bushwackers a couple of months ago, Like others said, take your time and the install will be relatively painless. Trimming the inner fenders was the most pain in the butt. Other than that, they went on fine.
I like the looks of them. Try amazon before you buy them, quadratec wanted around 600 for them, amazon was 4 and change. Big savings.

I just ordered them from Amazon and will be putting them on this weekend. I guess Jeep Add Ons will sell them for $450 and free shipping if you call them.......

I heard that too. But after I ordered them. Amazon was so easy, and I got them within a couple of days. and free shipping. Was a no brainer.

I think you'll like them a lot. I like them over the look of the pockets on the Jk.
Good luck on the install and post up some pics when your done.

Amazon got it to me in 3 days with free shipping, that was nice.

I have a couple jeep buddies helping me with the install. Sometimes a couple minds are better than one...... and beer helps too.
