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.

How close to factory width are these flares?

VinceF

  • These fenders offer 9.5" of tire coverage in the front and 4.5" of tire coverage in the rear. These are very similar to OE width, but eliminate the overhang of the stock fenders to allow a little wider and larger tire! Over all you may see an additional .5" to an inch of additional width compared to your stock fenders.

    Quality Product, Great Looks, 35's with no lift

    First of all, I love the look of these. Also the function is great as they allow me to run 315/70-17's (same as a 35-12.50) with no lift...the so-called Low CG build. With the swaybar unlocked on my Rubicon the rear tire can lightly contact the front inner area of the rear flare at full flex. Note the factory rock rails had to be trimmed to clear as well. On my 2017 the pinch seam was already cut at an angle so I didn't have to do that myself. This is with 17x9 wheels with 4.5" backspace. Installation of the flares was time consuming. I opted to reinstall the inner fenders and that was probably the most tedious part. They have to be reinstalled, marked, trimmed, then installed again to check fit. The front liners can be cut with paramedic scissors. For the rear liners I used an electric die grinder with a cutoff wheel. To ease installation, take some time to go over the flares and clean up the mounting holes. Many of the holes have extra material either in the diameter of the hole or on the back. Trust me, that little bit of material can cause you hassles. The clean up can be accomplished with a box-cutter blade to trim the material away, or use a deburring/chamfer tool to chamfer away the extra material. Also be sure to use an awl to line up the U-clips with their holes before the final fitting of the flare. Keep the awl handy to help line up the mounting holes in the flare with the u-clips after the flare has been put in place. Be prepared to use a light and spend some time getting the holes lined up. Getting the phillips head sheet metal screws started is the most time-consuming part of the flare install. If problems are encountered the u-clip has probably slipped and the flared must be removed to get the clip back in position. It doesn't help that the clips are black and can't be seen against the black plastic pieces. Coloring the u-clips with a silver Sharpie or a stripe of bright colored paint would help. Allow 6-8 hours to install everything. It's slightly easier if the wheels are removed, although perfectly possible without removing them. All in all the looks and function of the flares make up for the installation. The higher lines make the Unlimited Wrangler look shorter and more proportional. With 315's and 17x9/4.5 backspace wheels, the flares do not cover the whole tire. It's an aggressive look.

    One of the flares was scratched

    One of the flares was scratched and looked like it was used. This is my second purchase from extremeterrain and I am not satisfied, my first purchased included a front fender with led lights and a winch, one of the LED lights wasn't working and the color of the rope for the winch I received was different from what I ordered. I am very disappointed with my purchases from Extremeterrain.

    Look great, not the easiest install.

    Originally I was going to have them installed but the shop wanted $600. So I did it myself. Seeing that it took me almost 8 hours to do it with a friend, I can see why they wanted so much to do it. It wasn't very hard, it's just time consuming. Make sure that you check the lights out before you put the fenders on. The wiring is backwards and I had to remove the fenders to change it.

    Look good. Could fit better though

    The flare inner pieces that bolt to the fender are kinda tricky. You can barely tighten them or they deform and the flare won't seal to the body right. Also, the speed clips do not all line up with the screw holes on the bottom of the flare. Could only install about 3 per flare. I know these are "lesser quality" flares but they're still expensive for broke folks. Look to have some frustration as the instructions could be a bit better too. I suggest watching a YouTube video on how to install, for a better feel. I know it says not to focus on the customer service but I need to say that these guys are awesome. I was sent duplicate left rear flares and no right rear. They responded immediately and rectified the situation. Sending me the correct single flare with expedited shipping. Top notch!

    Love the extra clearance and look

    Great looking and well made product. The material that they are made of is definitely high quality. They are a bit tricky to install if you don't have the right tools, but if you can find a local shop to install them cheap, you may want to just go that route. These fenders will also give you the extra clearance to get larger tires and they look great on my 2013 JKU. I was able to throw on some 35s without a lift and haven't had any rubbing during some light off-roading. One thing to remember when wiring the marker lights, the colors are switched. So be sure to test them before securing the fender to the Jeep.

    A little misleading!!!

    The fenders look good and installed pretty easily however, the description uses uncertain terms to describe the material, they have a faux metal appearance but are actually plastic, that will teach me to check the weight. Kit was missing part D7 and instead had two P7.

    Review from Bushwacker Flat Style Flares, Fronts Only (07-17 Wrangler JK)

    Love The New Look

    I am still relatively new to Jeeping. I've had a Jeep for a few years but have just recently started going off-road. While attending a Jeep Jamboree, I noticed several Jeeps had the Bushwacker Flat Flares which allows room for your front end to articulate. That is why I chose these. The installation instruction pictures we're OK but I found a much better installation video online. Watch the entire video before installation. The installation was a bit challenging. The holes for the bolts that attach the fender flare supports to the fender where smaller than the bolts. I had to use my drill to make them a bit bigger so I could get the bolt to pass through. If you want to use the factory liners, you will have to trim them to fit the new fender. In the video, the installer used a pneumatic saw. I used a cutting wheel on my Dremel. It cut through the plastic like a hot knife through butter. I also had to drill the holes bigger in order to insert push retainers into the fender flare supports. Other than that, it was pretty straight forward.

    These add the look I wanted, so much better then stock fenders..a little tricky to install, cutting the inner fenders was the worst part. But once you get them on it's a game changer. So much more clearance makes my 35's tiny...buy these, you won't regret it.

    Preparation is key

    The written instructions included are average at best, a copy can be obtained from the Bushwaker web site. Highly recommend watching the you tube videos, I found three that have all the information needed to install. It is possible to install in one day, having a friend that is handy is a plus, however one person can install. I chose not to rush it and prep all the pieces first, things you can do in your living room while watching football. Remove all the existing stock fenders is a task that will expedite the install, this can be done well before the new fenders arrive. With the fenders gone I found some very light rust on one fastener area, so I was able to address that, to promote vehicle body life. Also you have less hardware to deal with if you prep everything first. Having the invaluable clip removing tool makes life great without having to worry about warping or damaging your vehicle's existing sheet metal. Most frustrating areas for me. 1. Trying to find the clip holes with an awl and lining them up with the fender flare holes. 2. Cutting the inner plastic splash guard is a bit tedious, I used a thin cut off wheel and exacto knife, the videos help show how to cut, I purchased extra body clips to mount the splash guard by itself so I knew for sure where to mark for the cut also after the cut, mounted them back up to make sure they where flat and lined up perfectly with the sheet metal, take time with this and wear goggles or face shield, nothing like hot melted plastic landing on your face. A couple of tricks the videos mention to help installation, 1. The awl to find the holes. 2. Applying upward pressure to the fender while securing the screws. 3. Applying pressure down to remove the tape from the fender molding then applying and holding for 10-30 seconds. (The supplied molding tool must be used immediately afterward), I applied a little silicone to the end and it was a bit tedious, take your time with the trim and it will look seamless and will give it that factory installed look. I don't see a function where I can post pictures. Overall I think it looks awesome!!

    Really add a great look to my Jeep JKU

    The fenders are very easy to install and when completed, really ad a great look to my Jeep JKU. The only down side is that in the box, one of the mounting brackets that attach to the side of the jeep was missing. I had to work directly with Bushwacker to get the part sent... and they took almost 3 weeks to even ship it. Hopefully, once I receive it I will then be able to fully complete the installation. Other than the missing piece, these fenders are awesome. A bit expensive but well worth the cost.

    Great look but tough install

    I love the look of the these flares on my jeep, but for the money and time (6hrs) to install I wish I had just gone ahead with the metal versions of the flat style. After install the flares feel very rugid and substantial, probably better than stock. There are way too many steps to this install and the instructions are very detailed but still a little confusing. Trying to trim the inside wheel housing to put back is a pain. Overall its a 3 star primarily for time consuming install.

If you don't have the right tools then pay to have it done, there are a lot of bits and pieces and the instructions , although very thorough its not the easiest .
