Pics of Pocket Style Fender Flares

I'm running 33x12.5x15 duratracs on my 06 TJ and I'm thinking about buying the Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares but I don't know if they will look good on my jeep. If any of you guys are running 33's and have these fenders can you post up some pics so I can see how they look? Thanks in advance!

-Mike

You can get them at cost I think at bushwackeroutlet.com. I got the front two for way cheaper than I would have had to pay anywhere else

Thanks! They are very easy to install as well. Takes a little time but it's a fun little project to work on on a weekend or something

That was probably because it was cold. Last summer I ran one straight into a tree and bent back about 4" and didn't even crack. However, this winter I was at work and slid into a pole because it was icy and it broke. But I mean any flare you get is prone to being damaged. Metal ones might be more durable but you mess one of those up it's probably gonna cost a lot to fix it. I love mine. It's just a preference of what you want

X2, if you off road, they will break.
They aren't called Bushcracker's nothing.

Had mine on for about a month and almost ripped three out of four off my Jeep.

Can't see it in the pic, but three of them now flap in the wind.

Not really, it was in August when I nearly ripped all mine off from flexing while off roading.

You obviously are not doing much of this, or you would.

Easy to crack / break for sure, mine lasted 3 months of road driving. No off roading. Lovely potholes of WV. Poorly molded as well. Mine had splay through out and varying wall thickness; however, I am very pleased with my BW flat flares. They use a different formulation of plastic that holds up much better.

Nothing beats the pocket flares for keeping the mud & flinging rocks off though.

It don't bother me that mine cracked because I bought them real cheap from a friend.
Enjoy your bushcracker's.

To the OP, the pocket flares look good and preform good on street jeeps, playing in the mud, and very light off roading (sooner or later the last one will crack them).

I used to have them. They worked pretty good for keeping stuff off the Jeep.

Mine broke too. I did not have them for very long.

I'm running 33" MTZ's and the flares are 6" Rugged Ridge 'All Terrains'.
The All Terrains have a 'textured' look (and feel) to them.
I've had the flares for a few years - all of them have sustained a small amount of damage - I'd expected much worse considering what I do with them.
I'll probably look for something different when the time comes to replace them.

Here's a couple pics of my 33's with these pocket flares. Beware!! They do break pretty easily. It's all about leverage.

Looks good! I like those tail lights too by the way. Are those from a CJ?

Thanks!! I think they are actually trailer lights. Not sure though, they were on it when I bought it.

Definatly not 33" yet haha but just a heads up the place where you bolt them on rips out around the bolt. Just from street driving now they flap in the wind and I went mudding on time and the fronts got mud underneath them and fell off had nothing to do with hitting trees or flexing. I was upset I couldn't believe that they just fell off under the weight of some mud

How does all of this happen to you guys??? Mud really?? I just don't understand it. Mine have been caked in mud, ran into trees and everything and they haven't broke. The only time I broke them was when it was 17 degrees and I backed over a power pedestal at work and broke it and another time at work the next week I slid into a power pile because there was so much ice. I guess I have just gotten lucky so far haha

If you want them, look into the TAG versions on ebay. The look the same and are a bit cheaper. I belive i have read post that the TAG version are of (no better or worse) Quadratec also have some cheaper versions.

I have I believe are Buchwackers from the PO. I do have some cracks around some of the mounting bolts.

I wheel mine pretty hard & at full flex the tire did get ahold of the flare & break where it mounts.I got it put back on securely & since I didnt want anymore b/s I trimmed the flare.I went to Rausch Creek this w/end & they never hit.Im happy now.
Heres the flare trimmed.:

Not sure who's TJ this one is:


Hey, that must be my jeep! Same problem here... I think that was probably one of the first mods I did because it looked cool... not functional at all for offroading though! Mine now consist of quite a bit of black duck tape, some super glue, a piece of gum and whatever I could find to put them back on. Maybe I'm exaggerating slightly... but they really don't hold up
