Fender flares

Anybody using Rugged Ridge 6" flares? If so, how do you like them? I have 31" tires and they stick out far enough that factory flares don't contain the rain or mud.

I removed them from the TJ I got rid of a while back and replaced them with the 4" ones. Both were fine. I prefer the tires to stick out a bit.

I like the look. I don't care for the spray zone when I turn while driving in the rain.

I have those flares. They work fine. I live on a dirt/gravel road and they help a bit to keep the Jeep a little cleaner.

As far as fit, they're OK, but the Bushwhackers will probably fit better.

I have Bushwhackers on my F-150 and they fit like factory flares, but they're double the money.

Good Luck, L.M.

31X10.5X15 BFG KOs on steel aftermarket wheels with 4" backspacing. The flares barely cover the outsides of the sidewalls.
They would probably be legal in states that require the entire tire to be covered.
They might work even better with mudflaps but I don't think the mudflaps would be a good idea on the trail.

Good Luck, L.M.

I had the rugged ridge six inch pocket flares and didn’t like them. They were very difficult to install and look horrible. Great coverage but I recently broke one after having a tire fall off. The spacing means you can’t really tighten them up much and the supplied hardware was all but useless.
