pic request Bushwacker pocket flares
 
Does anyone have a pic of bushwacker pocket style flares with 12.50 tires. I'm trying to decide between the 4.75" and the 6". Any pics would be appreciated.

Your screen name is Wheelerbob.

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're 16x8"/ 4.5" backspace and I've got 1.5" spidertrax adapters-to bring them in line with the "pocket" flares-

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

JIMBOX 07-24-2011 01:18 PM

Even though I appreciate sensible chrome use--those are just brushed alloy, with the black painted pocket s(Powder coat)-
Here's a poser shot

I got my screen name years ago on atv forums and it kinda stuck. I have not wheeled my jeep yet. I am planning my first ever wheeling trip for sep or oct this year. No laying on trees or anything like that mostly because I can"t afford to keep replacing parts, so beginner wheeling for me for a while.

Thanks alot, that was the pic I was hoping for. I was afraid that the 6" flares would swallow up the 12.50"s. That looks like just the right amount of flair.

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.:banghead:

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...
