After reading the pros and cons I decided to put them on my 2012 Sahara. They are great! Not everyone who buys a Jeep goes off-road so much of the time that having them rip off will be a problem. I don't like the side of my Jeep coated with dirty **** when I go through a puddle. Here is the north-east this is a problem whenever it snows or rains. Puddled Potholes are everywhere and trying to hose it off when the water hose is frozen is impossible. Trying to avoid the Dirty edge from the slush spray is a problem. At $35 a pair I'll just replace them if they get ripped off.
Besides I think they Look Good as well.
Carolyn's got a nice set up with the Teraflex flaps for fuctionality at least. I have the mopar fronts and they work fairly well on road with stock wheels and tires but as others have said offroad they won't last long. I would also mention that I just switched to 285/75R16 tires with new rims that stick out about a 1/4" and I am getting crap on the sides again. I am going to see if my LoD sliders help (if they ever fricken get here) if not I am going the Teraflex route.
