Pocket Fender Flare Recommendation

Anyone have experience with these? They seem to be much less expensive than others I've seen.

Yes, I have these same ones. Not bad, but they tend to fold in a bit further than I would like. I have been thinking about taking my heat gun to them to flare them out just a bit.

Good to know. How much drilling/cutting was required to install them?

If I remember correctly, I don't think I had to do any modification to get them to fit. I'll double check tonight though to make sure I didn't add a hole or anything.

Ok great. Do they actually stuck out six inches from the body? If so, that would provide perfect coverage for my current tires.

The ones I bought from Qtech needed new holes for every pocket. Not really a big deal. Simply tape the flare in place and mark where the hole needs to be with a magic marker. My kit came with the necessary blind nuts that go where you can't get to with a nut. Fronts were easy. On the back I removed the plastic liner for ease of access and refit it when I was done. I used clear silicone to seal the holes from rust and to act as a sort of locktite because the instructions say to not overtighten the bolts. I didn't cut away the unnecessary sheet metal because my tires cleared. I bought the wider flares in order to help keep the Jeep cleaner. I live on a dirt road. Please note...Accurate measurement is important to get a good fit. Mine fit OK but I wish I took more time taping the flares in place prior to marking where to drill. Good Luck, L.M.
