What's Your Favorite Fender Flares?

I'm looking to upgrade my TJ a little bit and I was thinking I want new fender flares. In your opinion, what are your favorite fender flares?

For flares...Im a big fan of the Xennon's since they give a bit more clearance and the material is flexible so it wont crack if you hit something. I axtually rubbed a tree and folded one under the fender but it popped right back out.

For fenders & flares metal cloak all the way.... I have a set of the overlines getting paint matched right now.

I like my bush wacker pocket style, but would love to have a set of metal cloak fenders.unfortunately $1500.00 isn't in my budget for fenders right now.

I like my pocket style flares and they do a good job keeping big chunks from hitting the sides of the jeep but they're breakable if you go through any heavy trails.

heres some pics of mine from today

They've held up great and i hit some hard rock trails today...brushed a few trees because it was a tight squeeze in a lot of places.

I think they're great flares and look good...they do a GREAT job of keeping stuff off the jeep and take most of the punishment of stuff throw up by the tires (i'll post another pic at the end).

But as mentioned, they can crack if you're too rough with them...but i guess that could go for anything, really lol...

agreed!

Heres another pic of a small pit i hit, which pretty much didnt get the jeep muddy at all because of the flares...this is Topher just before hitting it but a few minutes prior i hit the same thing. Just kinda hard to take a pic of myself haha

His buddy got some really good shots though so hopefully i can get them emailed to me and i'll post those...especially one of the bigger pit we hit...and then were talked to about not mudding in the forest (didnt know that)
