Look on ebay. When fortec does a jeep they use bushwhackers and sell the stock ones for about $125 a set (all six pieces) . Of course if you wanna stick with stock, Krylon Fusion spray paint is better than buying new flares. If you want different ones then try lookin at Quadratec for some Bushwhacker pocket style flares.

Two weekends ago, I installed the Omix-Ada 7" fender flares, they look nice, actually my 03 is starting to look like an 07.

www.bluetorchfab.com. I'm kinda pissed though the rocker guards I wanted from them are an extra 145 for the rail/step on the side plus shipping too. so I'm gonna find someplace thats cheaper for that part hopefully, but I still like the tube fenders

poison spyder customs makes like rockers, cages, tube fenders, etc.. they do pretty nice work.. a lil expensive for my budget, but i think I'm gonna break down and get a set of their tube fenders..

I'm looking for a set with 6'' flares to match my Sahara side paneling and also my rear fenders for now, until i get enough money to replace them

i dont have the bush wacker flares, but have seen many broken ones. They get brittle.

I personally have warns. I've cracked one when I layed the jeep into it. The others have scrapes but not broken.

THe only thing with the PSC tube fenders is that you have to hack up your stock fender and weld the tube to it.

I'd rather go with T&T so that I can save my stockers just in case.

Plus, you'll be lucky to get tube fenders from PSC in the time they quote you.

Those are the ones I have installed on my jeep. I have two guys that are in my 4X4 club that work for Rugged Ridge..so needless to say, I got a pretty good deal on them.

those T&T's are pretty nice but spendy. I've heard that the wait for posion spyder is over 6 mths and they're even more spendy than T&T. I need to do some shopping around for the tube fenders and some nice rocker guards and step.
