I searched and read only one thread where someone had them on their Jeep and they liked them. Their response: "The new Bushwhacker Flat flares, like I installed earlier this year are made from a new plastic so they are not crack or breakage prone at all, though I was able to damage them on a trail that no other flare could have survived either with possibly the exception of the Warn flares."
Anyone else have these on their Jeep? I like the Warn flares but I want to go with flat fenders.
Well I ended up buying them and installed them last week. I like them but the price was a little steep. I do like the fact that it gives an additional 2" of tire space and covers up to 6" of tire width. Now I have to buy bigger tires!
From what ive heard, no one who does alot of offroading approves of those bushwhacker flares. What people end up doing is they rip it off, and get the tube fenders. Expensive? yes, but theyre steel and you can get them for about $250 shipped to you if you get them used.
I just installed the rear set. When I install the fronts do they extend further towards the rear o fthe jeep than the stock flares? Installation instructions mentions someting about reinstalling the tub trim and moving the mounting hole by 3/8". If that is the case i will have to remove my rock sliders and cut off 3/8" to make room for the longer flare.
