I personally prefer the Bushwacker flat fender flares OR their pocket flares.

See I hate the plastic flairs they look basically the same as the stock ones. You might as well cut your stock ones flat. Here are some aggressive looking plastic ones.

There also located in Bothell Wa. So customer service would be the best.

On my two former TJs that I installed wider flares, I went with Xenon both times. I chose them because they looked similar to stock, but especially because they are flexible. I am likely to rub up against rocks when I go Jeeping, so I didn't want rigid flares that would be destroyed by rock contact.

Here is my former '97 Sahara sporting a set of Xenons:



When my current TJ needs wider flares, I'll be getting another set of these Xenons again.

Bushwacker flares are known for cracking super easily, and xenons are known to sag when its hot outside... So I personally would either trim my stock flares or invest in tube flares.

You could always paint or bedline your flares, if you prep them well they should last....

I have the bushwacker flat flares on my 05 rubicon and love them. They have a lip around them which also makes a great shelf when your working on the jeep. they hold a beer well and there tough as hell, I slid into a dirt bank on a trail pretty hard and it never phased them.

I have bushwacker pockets and love em'. Gives it that aggressive look and covers more than the stock. But I guess its a matter of preference.
