Fenders Flares? Metal
 
What is the best in your opinion? Short and sweet.
I don't like my current ones because the plastic is really cheap.
Anyone with metal flares out there willing to spread some advise, reviews, and pics?
Thanks

And yes I did use the Frankenstein method to repair my flares. Drill small holes each side, use 4" zip ties, put an epoxy on the back, and finally drill a small hole at top of crack to prevent further splitting.

Metal cloak arched flares. My favorite ones so far.

I'd still like to see everyone else's Ideas but I am very impressed by those and that company after checking them out. Thank you so much for telling me about those. Were they an easy install? and how does the quick release work?

This. Watch some of the videos they have on their site about them. In one of them the guy (200+lbs) gets up on them and bounces on it. Rock solid. I will definitely be getting some when money allows for it.

what you have are called bushcrackers...for obvious reasons.

Warn flares, Rubicon flares, or other OEM type material flares will be more flexible.

I'm not a fan of big heavy metal flares because they just transfer the damage to the tub. so would you rather replace the flares or repair a damaged tub?

I dont have them yet. I have the same flares you have for the moment, as soon as they break apart (very soon cause I see stress cracks already) I will be getting the arched fenders with the 6" flares.

Haha, never heard that before but it is so true. I feel as though they are more for show, not offroading.

Thats why I like the quick release flares by metal cloak, Id rather have them than cracked plastic
