Theres a couple of posts about them if you do a search. Apparently they aren't half bad for the price.

I have them. They've held up great. I put them on last summer. I am pretty sure I did a thread on it.

Due to my recent obsession with Bedliner. I ordered the textures pocket flares. For 200 shipped you can't beat it.

Thanks for the input. If it doesn't come with washers I might put some on during the install to avoid this problem.

I'm thinking about getting them too. My stock fenders are looking pretty rough. The only thing is I run 33's and I kinda like the look where my tires stick out. If I get the 6" ones will they still stick out any? I have no idea the dimensions of stock flares.

I just bought a set of the rugged ridge ones similar to those (6" pocket style) off ebay from CSE Offroad. they were 250 shipped, 6 piece kit all stainless hardware the fit and quailty was great, havent wheeled or anything with them yet, but they seem pretty rugged, One tip tho, make sure you got thread rivets befor you start the job, 5mm x .08... chances are your gonna have to replace some.. I did

I put them on my jeep. The rear left one has two cracks in it from the screw. If you hit anything with them or anyone else hits them they will crack. An example would be someone pushing a shopping cart into it and cracking them, this is what happened to mine.

I install heating and air, and was working at a guys house that had a nice Green Sahara Tj. And of course we got to talking about Jeeps, I told him we needed to go 4 wheeling some time and he said he would gladly pull me out lol. Well I told him i would try to pull him out if he got stuck, but that his front hooks prolly wouldn't work. He asked why?? I showed him that they were backwards lol. He got red in the face and walked away. Then his wife came out and told me that he had just put those on 2 days before lol. Thank god the job was done!!
