Flat Panel Flares

My tires stick out a couple of inches past my stock flares and I want better coverage. I like the looks of the Bushwacker Flat Panel Flares pictured in my Quadratec catalog. The flat panels look more functional than the pocket style flares. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with these? I'm wanting to keep my suspension stock and along with my 1.25" BL these high clearance flares should allow me to someday go back up a tire size or two with my stock suspension.

they look like they are more functional and would allow up to at least 33's? with stock suspension.

Been pretty happy with mine but if you're into the hardcore stuff spend a little more and get steel.I'm just a casual offroader,hunting and camping mostly, and these Bushwacker flats work fine for me.

Hey Twister,

What's the actual width of that flare? They look nice, but with my 37" and 1.25" wheel spacer I suspect I may need something a little wider to completely cover my tire.

Thanks for the pics Twister! Are the side marker lights a direct plug in or do you have to splice wires? Does the winch come with them?
