Our Jeeps, and JKs in particular, come out of the factory with decent-looking flares that offer an okay amount of protection. But one of the coolest things about the Jeep hobby is that there's so much stuff to upgrade, and we can definitely do better than original. Check these flares out. These are the Hurricane flat-style flares from Rugged Ridge. The biggest difference is really obvious right here. They're gonna give you a lot more clearance. As a matter of fact, we've heard of guys running 35-inch wheels and tires with no lift, using these flares with no tire rub. Now, the flat style is a very aggressive style that looks great. Now, these studs don't really do anything. You've got the option of black or stainless, and I think they look kind of cool. But here's the real benefit of a plastic, flat-style fender. With a tube steel fender, if you come into an obstacle or brush a tree on the trail, that energy can transfer into the body, give you body damage. With plastic, at least you have the possibility of that tree or that obstacle taking the fender. The fender takes the heat, leaves your body alone. So for me, even with hardcore wheeling, I kind of like the flat-style fender flares in plastic. Now, in back, you can really see the gains in clearance from the OE fender, and since we utilized the inner fender from the original setup, we still have that body protection for the sheet metal and the components. Now, some people have a little bit of a tricky time back here using the existing holes and the hardware that's supplied. You probably want to set aside about a half a day to put this entire set on, but the gains are well worth it. So if you've ever thought of upgrading your fender flares to a flat-style fender flare, check out the Hurricane flares from Rugged Ridge, and you can pick them up at extremeterrain.com.

RR Huricane Flares came out awesome!
These fenders were very easy to install. Even cutting the existing stock fender liner for fitting with these new ones went smoothly. Very solid and not flimsy at all. Even after I smacked the front drivers side flare off my garage pulling in not 1 hour after install, ugh! Scuff came right out though. Definitely can take hit, take it from me! Very pleased with this purchase!Helpful (2)

Took me about 5 hours but I had some difficulties so could probably be done in 3-4. Factor inner fenders must be cut in order to get to fit. Fenders look awesome!Helpful (1)

I love the way they look, but they were definitely not as easy to install as I thought they would be. The review video stated that if I had a 2 door, I would not need to trim the liner on the back. I had to trim the liner on the back. The side-light screws were too short, so I had to find longer ones, but other than that, it was worth the work. They look really cool.Helpful (1)
What is the width from the body to the end of the fenders front and rear?
These fender flares would be about an inch wider in the front from the stock flares and about 0.75" in the rear. In total, they would be about 12" for the front flares and 5.75" for the rear.
What I would like to know is can they be painted.?
Hello, yes these Fender Flares can be painted.
Can these flares be painted? I have a white Rubicon and I want to paint the flares to match the vehicle
Yes, these flares can be painted. They will require prepping for paint so we recommend seeking a professional automotive painter for service to ensure a quality finish.
With these fender flares, would you be able to fit a 33 inch tire without a lift kit installed?
Thank you for your question! Any flat fenders can help you fit a larger tire without adding a lift. I would suggest reaching out to our Wrangler Enthusiasts to help determine what you need for your specific Model Wrangler: https://www.extremeterrain.com/contact.html.
Can you get splash guards that fit the hurricane flares
If you are referring the fender liners, you would reuse your factory fender liners with this install. If by splash guards, you are referring to mud flaps, than the manufacturer stated that they do not currently produce mud flaps that would work with the Rugged Ridge Hurricane Flat Fender Flares.
No, there are not other color options for the light covers.
Any fenders can fade, but I would not suggest that this would fade quickly however.
All the rivets that come with this kit are stainless steel.
The only difference between these flares is the finish. They install in the exact same way for both of the flares
We do not offer the Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flares pre-painted but you can get these painted by a body shop.
The install guide shows the kit to include the stainless steel and black decorative bolts.
You would still need to cut the front wheel liner as mentioned in step 12- "Attach front wheel liner, mark a line that follows the edge of the fender. Cut the line marked" but then you would not cut the additional piece out of the passenger site mentioned in step 13. For the rear wheel liner you would "mark a line that follows the edge of the fender. Cut the line marked."
This Fender Flare Kit does require trimming of the factory splash liner and minimal drilling for installation.
