lasted about 2 yrs....never had a problem until I borrowed Frank's Jeep :rolleyes:
..."rubbed" off the passenger's side during an off camber slip through some rocks, and they will crack if you get too close to a tree ;)

i have just the extension kind, not the pocket kind that have the weird like indents, look like any other brands flare, just 6" farther out

TeeJay 11-14-2007 09:06 PM

wider stock style. I try to avert my eyes when 'pocket flares' are around.

donĀ“t go with the bushcrackers. they look very good but they get damaged on light contacts. my omix-ada flares are much more flexible than a friends bushcrackers.

if you want the bushcracker look then better choose the smittybilt fenders, they look the same but are much more affordable:

These painted Bushwacker flares came with the limited-edition Tomb Raider package in mid 2003.

They really work great at keeping mud off of the body.

33s tend to stuff nicely while 35s tend to rub. For that reason, I had the rear fenders trimmed at the lip that curves inward.

Hey what are your tire and wheel size for the 33's and the 35's that you have? Just wondering. Looks great :)

I had Bushwacker Pocket flares on my Jeep many years ago. They broke.

They did a great job at keeping stuff off the side of the Jeep.
But, if you off road in tight trails where you could rub on rocks and trees, they won't last long.

Notice how the back one is attached (zip ties), like stated earlier, they break pretty easy. I'm looking for flats or maybe even just extended stock style.

Khwaja ji 12-25-2013 06:35 PM

Pocket flares don't last long , best option is to go for flat flares.
