    A Flat Fender Flare like this is going to give you some additional up travel before your tire hits your fender flare when you're off-road with your sway bars disconnected and really doing some flexing and articulating. However, having the tire hit the fender flare isn't really going to limit your up travel, so it's really just the annoyance of the sound and the wear and tear on your factory flare that you're eliminating by having a flat flare like this one. A flat flare will also change the aesthetics of your jeep. A flat flare is going to open up that wheel well making you look like you have even more lift than you do, and this is sort of a hybrid flat flare and pocket flare, it has some pockets with rivets built into it as well, so this is going to be a little bit more of an aesthetic mod than anything else.If you are looking at flat flares, there're really two schools of thought. There are the people that think a metal flare is a better option because of course it's going to hold up, it's not going to bend or break when you're off-road and when you make contact with an obstacle. However, there are also those people that say a metal flare because it doesn't bend or break, will transfer any impact into the body of the Jeep, causing a much more expensive repair. So if you're looking for a flat plastic fender flare kit that also has the pockets, the rivets, includes the lights, and is really an all-inclusive hit, I think this is a really nice one to take a look at.These flares are made of an injection molded thermoplastic which is very similar to your factory flare material, so they are going to look good no matter what color your Jeep is or what style build you're going for. These are UV treated, so they're not going to fade and get chalky like those factory flares would over time. The rivets that you see in the pockets on these flares are not functional, however they do come with some corrosion resistant hardware, so you're gonna get the look of a rivet-style flare without having to worry about your hardware rusting. Something I really like about these flares in particular is that they do come with a new marker light that will use your factory marker light socket. So as I said before, there's a little bit of wiring to extend, but Rugged Ridge makes that very easy, however you're not going to have to worry about getting some sort of aftermarket LED light and getting that wired up and working. All the instructions are included, all of the hardware is included, and this kit is very easy to install. This is a very simple one out of three wrench installation that is probably gonna take you right around three hours to complete. The first step is of course removing those factory flares off of your Jeep. In order to do that, you'll give your turn signal socket a quarter turn, remove it from its housing, and then just remove all of nut and bolt hardware that's holding those factory flares in place. Now, that hardware goes through a factory flare and into a Nutsert that's in the body. And if your TJ has some rust on it like mine does, you can have a little bit of trouble with those fasteners attaching to those Nutserts spinning in the body which would make it difficult to remove them. For the ones that you can get behind with a pair of needle-nose pliers or Vise-Grips, you can hold that Nutsert, making a little bit easier to get everything apart. However, if you cannot get to the back of it, then you may have a little bit more trouble getting your factory fasteners removed. It's always a good idea to spray everything with a good penetrating oil well before you get started, especially if you have a little bit of rust.In the back, the process is very much the same for removing your factory flares, although you will have to pull that factory inner fender liner down a little bit to access all of the nut and bolt hardware. Once those factory flares are completely removed, it's a simple matter of installing the new flares with the included hardware. You'll hold them up to the side of the Jeep, use all of the factory holes and the included hardware to get them bolted on. These do come with some weatherstripping that you'll put between the flare and the body to ensure that nothing is going to chafe. You'll do the installation on both the front and the rear, then go back and install all of the rivets. Again, they're not functional, but they do provide a little bit of a nicer look. And finally, extend your wiring before you turn signal and marker light socket to attach it to your new marker light housing. The whole process, while it does have a lot of steps and is going to take you around three hours, is something that anybody can do in their driveway with some traditional hand tools. These flares come in and right around $370, and in my opinion, that's not a bad price for what you're getting. You're going to get all four of your flares, they do come with the weatherstripping that we talked about. They even come with the wire to extend your turn signal and your new turn signal housing, so you don't have to worry about purchasing anything separately. The rivets or corrosion resistant, they come with all the hardware, this is a really well put together kit by Rugged Ridge, in my opinion. And if you're looking at other flat fender flares or other replacements fender flares, they're all going to be right around the same price, so I think these are priced fairly.So if you're looking to install a flat pocket style rivet flare on your TJ to open up the wheel wells and provide a little bit of a different look to your Wrangler, I think this is going to be a nice kit that includes everything you need and is fairly priced. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare kit, fitting all 1997 to 2006 TJs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    No Tire Rubbing. If you have experienced interference from your fender flares and you have dealt with tire rubbing, theRugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare Kit put an end to it. This kit is perfect for when you want to disconnect your sway bar and articulate off road. You will no longer have to worry about the sound of your factory fender flares rubbing on your tires. You will find that this kit opened up your wheel well and offers you a hybrid look, which is the pocket style and flat style flares coupled together. While you do receive additional clearance and coverage, the Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare Kit is more of an aesthetic mod than a function mod, so do bear this in mind. The plastic flares are designed to absorb any impact your Jeep may take and retain it by flexing or bending to prevent transfer of the impact to your Jeep’s body. The Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare Kit comes with rivets, lights, and pockets for a complete look. Made from injection molded thermoplastic and treated with a UV protectant, you will find that this fender flare kit is the perfect addition to your 1997-2006 TJ. Installation is considered to be easy through a bolt-on application and the kit comes with new marker lights that make use of your factory light socket.

    Thermoplastic Construction. Made from an injection molded thermoplastic for a durable and tough exterior, you can enjoy the peace of mind needed that your Jeep will be protected when you head off road. The kit comes with fasteners that are corrosion resistant and constructed from the best materials. These fender flares come finished in a beautiful black texture to ensure your Jeep looks as tough as can be.

    Everything You Need for Installation. The Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare Kit comes with all of the hardware needed for installation of your new fender flares. Each of the fasters is corrosion resistant and easy to install. Installation is considered to be simple and can be done in approximately two hours from start to finish.

    3 Top Rated Questions

    are these a direct bolt on? instructions do not download? Also how wide are they?

    • Yes they are a direct bolt on replacement flare. They are almost 3 inches wider than the factory flares. I have 31 x 10.5 tires on my TJ now and they are fully covered with room to spare. Pretty sure that even 35 x 12.5 would be covered as well.

    Are they paintable?

    • Yes, the fenders can be prepped and painted. You may want to removed the textured black finish before painting.

    Do these RR Hurricane Fender Flares require drilling holes on a 2005 TJ?

    • The Rugged Ridge Hurricane Fender Flare Kit does not require drilling to install the fender flares. You would reuse your factory fender flare mounting points.

      Great Flares

      Great looking and function, only complaint would be the rubber seal provide, even after cleaning the surface of the flare for the 3m tape to stick the rubber seal would work its way out. Keep it simple and change it to just a "T" shape and make it the leg long enough to get held in by the flare. In the end i went without the seals and it still looks good.

      Fenders

      I love the fenders the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because the holes that are for the fake bolts on the outside are drilled out to big for the bolts that come with the fenders they would like to pull through. I had to buy new ones to fit. I put 48 Stainless steel 3/8-16 button heads in place of original ones. Looks good now.

      Expensive, yet cheaply made

      for the price, these fenders should be built better, there is no reason to make the holes of the fake pocket bolts bigger than the actual bolts. Instead of a tiny little rubber piece that takes on the rear edge of the fender, that does not stick well, a 1" wide rubber buffer should be used, to keep the buffer in place. These fender flares should also be molded a little better, they do not really fit the fender wells very good. Also different sizes of flares should be offered, these things stick out way past my tires, and I have 33". I was not a big fan of rugged ridge before I bought these flares, and I can now say I am definitely NOT a fan now. There products are overpriced, and under engineered. When I get these things paid off, I will be going to Poison spyder flares I think

      Pricey but well worth it

      Replaced a set of bushwhacker pocket style with these Hurricane flares and never looked back. Gives you additional wheel clearance. I measured all around and I was getting three more inches of wheel clearance at closest spot on all four corners. Some places had much more

      overall pretty good

      The weather stripping wont stick to the front fenders so you end up pinching them in more than anything. Other than that, expect to to spend a few hours installing these. If you have an older TJ also expect to grind a few screws out. Good look though!

      Love the look.....nice flare overall

      I was replacing a set of 6" Bushwacker flares that suffered some damage while wheeling. I decided on these Rugged Ridge fender flares due to their flat look and to give my tires a bit more room. Installation was fairly straight forward. For the price paid I was not very impressed with the some of the plastic hardware provided by RR for the install, and opted to make a trip to ACE for some regular nuts and bolts. Other than that, I am happy with my purchase and would probably buy again.

      Seemed fragile at first...

      These flares seemed fragile on taking them out of a the box but once I got them on they were quite firm and sturdy. With the long winter here in Montana they catch all the snow and slush flying off new tires with deep tread. Have not taken them off road yet.

      Broken first time out, probably my fall.

      I purchased these flares to better cover full width axles and wide tires. Installed very easily, fit and finish was very good. I am not sure about the durability, they do not seem very flexible. On the first trip out into the wounds I caught a 2 inch branch on the corner of the flare and the plastic broken into multiple fragments. Trying to order a replacement currently.

      Quality Flare

      Flare looks good but hardware needed upgrading. The washers provided were too small. The nut inserts were cheap and were not usable. I went to the hardware store and found a better insert and larger washers. Looks good now.
