If he's mentioning the Bushwacker products then he's talking about the fender flares.

you can make fender flares out of metal cant you? I think i'm seen a pic somewhere through yahoo images

i was talking about tube fenders not just the flares..

I like pocket stile flares too though If i dont get tubes id get the pockets

I like the way we are all guessing as to what he is actually talking about .

My turn: it appears that he is referring to flares and currently has a Sahara because his are painted.

If that is the case, and you are just having problems with the stock painted flares gretting scratches, I would suggest stock unpainted or Rubicon (wider) flares - preferably newer used ones. Any flares you get will still scratch up but in my opinion it is less noticeable on the unpainted and from what I have seen the OEM seem to hold up the best.

The only other option would be flared tube fenders and flared rear corners that I am aware of.

Red, I have a Sahara also and I'm pretty sure the flares are the same width as a Rubicon's flares are. I actually like the Sahara flares because they are stronger than the stock flares and help protect my fenders and body in the rear.

Jack, the Sahara's are as wide as the Rubi's (at least Eric's painted LJ flares are). They are both wider than what is on the SE, X and Sport. I agree that the painted are prolly stronger and even scratch less easily (clearcoat) but from what I've seen the scratches aren't as visible/noticeable (unbuffed) on the black unpainted. It does vary a great deal by color though. An advantage to the painted is they can be buffed out if done properly and given the right color combo/rig they often look better IMHO (I really like painted flares in combination with a color matched top).

I prefer to get my fender flairs rhinoed. It prevents sractching and never fades.

His hood isnt cut, but I agree 100%.

2000Apex- Rhino lining does fade. Even with the UV stuff, it fades, and you would have to do the rhino lining dye stuff. Judging by the smell of it, and the instructions from rhino lining, I can't see that stuff being good for the paint :really:
