Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Bushwacker Flat Style Fender Flare Kit, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. There's a version of this kit available for both the two-door and the four-door Wrangler. Depending on your suspension setup and the size of the tires you're running, your uptravel may be limited by your fender flares. If your tires hit your fender flares when you're in an off-road situation, it can pop the flares right off the Jeep and you'll be picking them up off the side of the trail. Adding a set of flat fenders like this will provide additional clearance, so that you can have more uptravel without having any interference issues. Now there are a couple of thoughts when it comes to metal flares versus plastic flares like that you see here. Some people will say that a metal flare holds up better than a plastic flare when you rub it against a tree or another off-road obstacle, while others say that the metal flare not bending or breaking will actually transfer that impact into the body of the Jeep, causing a much more expensive repair. So if you're looking for a flat fender flare, you have the decision between metal and plastic flares, and if you decide to go with this set of plastic flares, this is a really nice option. These are going to be one of the highest-quality fender flares out there on the market, and they are a little bit more expensive because of it. Bushwacker likes to make their fender flares in a two-piece design. Well, in this case, there's actually more than two pieces. But the idea is that you have an inner fender that bolts directly onto the Jeep and then the fender flare itself that bolts to that inner fender. And there's some weather stripping that goes in-between. The flares themselves are made of a UV-resistant material, so they're not gonna fade over time, and this is a Duraflex plastic that is designed to bend if you rub it on an off-road obstacle, instead of breaking. Again, that's something that a metal flare is not going to do. These have a textured finish, which is really similar to that OE finish that you will have on your factory fender flares, so it'll look good with the other black plastic accents on your Jeep and a lot of textured, black powder coated aftermarket parts that you might bolt up to your Wrangler. The front flares provide a total of 9 1/2 inches of coverage, while the rears provide 4 3/4 inches, which will help keep the tires from throwing mud and other junk up on the side of the Jeep. These also include the lights that you need for your turn signals and side markers, even though you do have to do a little bit of wiring to get them set up. And these are designed to work with your factory inner fenders, even though you have to do some trimming to get them bolted up. All of the locations that need to be cut and the way that you can make those factory inners work with these is in the instructions so it makes the process pretty simple. I really like to run a set of inner fender liners because it keeps mud and junk out of the engine bay, which is especially important on the passenger side because you have a big bundle of wiring harnesses right there, which otherwise would be constantly barraged by things kicked up from that front passenger side tire. The process of installing a new set of fender flares is pretty simple, although it can take a little bit of time, especially when you consider the trimming that you need to do to get the inner fender liners working. The first step is to install those inner fenders with the weather stripping that's included and all of the hardware that's included in the kit. Once all of those pieces are bolted onto the Jeep, then you'll bolt the fender flare itself onto that inner fender. As I mentioned, the kit does include lights that will bolt right onto the front fenders, but you will have to do a little bit of wiring to get those working. The kit also includes alcohol rubs to help with the weather stripping adhesion and some reflectors to keep you completely DOT-approved. This is a really complete kit of a really high-quality fender flare, and you can see it when you look at all the components that are included. The whole installation of this kit should take about three hours or so, and you won't need any specialty tools. However, you will need a good socket set and something to trim the plastic inner fender liners. Now even though this is a really high-quality and very complete set of flat fenders, there are actually kits out there that are more expensive than this one, and some of them don't even include the lights. So in my opinion, while this is a little bit pricey, you're getting a lot of value for what you pay. If you're somebody who does a lot of hardcore off-roading and you plan to really beat up your fender flares and they're probably not gonna last that long, I would recommend going with one of the less expensive kits on the market. However, if you're somebody who plans on having these for a good, long time, it's my opinion that the investment upfront is worth it. So if you're looking to add a little bit of additional clearance for more uptravel on your two-door or four-door JK, I would definitely recommend taking a look at these Bushwacker Flat Fender Flares. So that's my review of the Bushwacker Flat Style Flare Kit, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

      What is the difference between these and Item J16384? They are both Bushwacker flare sets but I can not figure out the actual difference from the description. I have a 4 door 2007 JKU if that also helps in answering. Thanks!

      • This item will include front and rear fender flares whereas item J16384 will only include the front flares (even though it shows all of them).

      In you guys description it says “Includes DOT-Compliant LED Marker Light” do this mean DOT is on the led marker. A car will not pass State Inspection without DOT present on all factory operated lights

      • The marker lights are DOT Compliant.

      Would these look dumb with stock Rubicon wheels? I'm afraid that there will be way too much space between the tire and the fender.

      • There are many people who use these flares with the stock Rubicon wheels and they do look good.

          Great looking fenders

          These fenders look terrific. There are some very good install videos on the internet and i suggest watching a couple before you start. The included instructions are very easy to understand but the videos make it so much clearer. Great looking fenders on my JKU.

          Good looking but could be made better

          Some of the holes were not drilled correctly on the pieces you mount to the body. You may have to drill holes out to make them fit correctly on the body. There is a lot of cutting excess plastic away from holes on fenders and mounting pieces in order to install. Unless you have done an install like this before plan on needing an entire day and take your time to prep the materials. If you rush it will be a struggle. I am happy with the look, however I expected a better product for the money spent.

          My fault for overlooking the description that they were plastic. I love the look but too expensive for some plastic would much rather spend the extra $100-$200 for steel/metal.

          Great but take your time on install

          These are great, low profile fenders. Easily allow you to free up space for larger wheels without the need for a lift. OR, just add a sweet look to your Jeep. Take your time though and go step by step. Getting the screw holes to line up can be a bear. Take your time and it goes great!

          looks good but fit was off

          These look great and allow 35 inch tires with no lift. The fit was off though and took me a while since I had to trim my liners and then redrill all but 3 holes in the outer fenders to line up with the mount they supply. I also had to remove the flashing on every hole predrilled as all of them looked like a dull drill had been used and they melted in rather than drilled. Added some time but the result is great just way more effort than expected with bushwacker.

          Bushwacker flat flare fenders 2014 Willys edtion

          Installation was not bad, 1 fender took the longest then it went quicker. I used a dremel to cut the liners, which worked very well. the only thing I would say is once you install the fender on to the mounts, the screw holes do not always line up exactly, you can slide the fender forward and back a little which help a lot in lining the holes up with the screw clips. I was a little skeptical but now love the look.

          Great Look, need patience

          Great looking and high quality material (both fender and installation parts). On line videos are very helpful. I would give 5 stars, but like most installs their is some give and take on install directions. You'll need your A game (patience) when matching up the installation holes/screws that mount to brackets. Fender were a little deformed form shipping/packaging that created mounting issues on the first fender. I suggest that you unpack fender and stuff tennis balls between the fender molding to spread the flares back to original as soon as you get them so that the install goes easier. This made the next 3 go much smoother.
