Not a problem I really like the 6" flares it definatley beefs it up without completely taking over the tire



as far as the new "pocket" flares I have no idea, I bought these off craigslist a while back...

Fair enough. FWIW, I liked the looks, and they did keep mud and everything else the tires kicked up out of the inside of the Jeep.

There is a off-brand Bushwacker look-a-like flare out there that is less expensive. I have no experience with them, but I have heard they are thinner and even less durable. If you do end up getting them, be careful tightening up the stainless fasteners. I actually cracked one of my mounting holes by cranking them too tight.

Bob, If you "wheel" your Jeep, I would steer clear of pocket flares.

Mine, just before I touched a tree and they exploded, years ago.




They were the 6" version.

I've had them for over 2˝-years and I think they're still $130 bucks apiece-they're sold by 4wdparts.com !!
