Question Bushwacker parts not fitting???

Hey guys I have a set of bushwacker flares on the way for my 97' wrangler.

I would like to purchase a set of the Rugged Ridge rear corner armor aswell but am getting mixed messages about these two products not fitting together???

I have a pic of these two items together on the same car so just wondering if any of you guys have first hand exp. with these parts? cheers

There's no reason they won't fit together. By the way, those particular flares are well known for cracking, the plastic they are molded from is fairly brittle. For that reason that brand is known by some as Bushcracker.

When you have a choice, buy American.

I have the Bushwacker flats and Warrior rear armor and I didn't have any problems with them matching up or not fitting.

But like said above about them being very brittle is true. I could probably rip the fenders off by hand. Their definitely not worth the $470 I spent on them. They do look good though

I can't see why those fenders will not work with that corner armor.

I have had those those Bushwacker fenders on my TJ for about three years. No cracks so far. Maybe the Texas heat keeps them from becoming too brittle? They came highly recommended from a friend that has had his for a few years. One of my brothers has them on his YJ.

We are ranchers and hunting outfitters. So, we drive through brush all the time. I did have a bull hook one of the rear fenders and pull the bolt heads through. Quickly fixed with washers. I guess your mileage may vary.

Here is your exact configuration. Fit perfect. I have had the Bushwackers on for going on 4 years now. Had 2 spots on the right rear flare where the flare broke around the mounting screw. Put larger stainless washers under the mounting screw and no new problems. Tons of off road, mud, rocks, tree branches hitting them and they still look good.
