    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. The factory plastic fender flares on a JK hang down pretty low, and depending on the size tire, the size lift, and the amount of bump stop you're running, they may interfere with the tire at full flex or full articulation off-road. Adding a flat fender flare can add some additional clearance for more articulation and more performance in an off-road scenario. Now, there are really two schools of thought when it comes to aftermarket fender flares. One is that a metal fender flare, like these, will hold up better to rubbing on trees and other trail obstacles. The other is that a plastic fender flare, while it may break when you rub it against an obstacle, it won't transfer any impact into the body, which can cause a much more expensive repair. So it really comes down to what school of thought you subscribe to. But if you're looking for a flat fender flare to add clearance and open up your wheel wells, and you like the idea of a metal flare, these are an inexpensive and simple flare which will get the job done. As I said, these are really simple flares. There are a lot of different metal fender flares on the market, and these are, by far, the simplest, most stripped down flares that I've seen. And to be honest, I kind of like that. It gives the Jeep a really clean look, and there's no frills. These are very utilitarian. These steel flares are covered with a textured black powder coated finish, and the kit includes all the hardware that you need to get these installed on the Jeep. Now, you will be able to reuse your factory inner fender liners if you want to. However, you'll have to do some trimming, and those instructions are not included in the install instructions for the flares themselves. The front flares are going to be completely bolt-on, but you will have to drill a hole to get the rear flares installed. The first step is, of course, to remove your factory flares, and to do that, you'll have to first remove your factory inner flares. Then you can remove the bolt and hardware holding your factory flares in place. And then, really, just give them a good pull, and they'll come off the Jeep. You are going to break quite a few, if not all, of the plastic clips holding those factory flares on the vehicle, but don't worry about it, they won't be reused for this installation. Once you remove any remnants of those plastic clips from the holes, it's just a matter of holding the fender flare up to the Jeep and using the included hardware to bolt them in place. The whole installation process may take you up to four hours or a little bit more if you find yourself trimming the inner fender liners to reinstall those. However, you won't need any specialty tools to get the job done, just some traditional hand tools. I think these fender flares are priced really fairly for what they are. These are less expensive than a lot of the other metal flares on the market, but as we said before, they're also a lot simpler than those other flares. So it makes sense that these would be less expensive. I wouldn't take the lower price tag to mean lower quality, because these do seem like they're really well-built. So if you're looking for some flat fender flares to open up your wheel wells, are gonna give you a little more articulation while off-road, and you like the idea of a stronger metal flare, this is a really nice option, especially if you like something that's minimalistic and is no-frills. So that's my review of the Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares, fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Prevent Interference. The Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares work perfectly on the 2007-2016 JK Jeep model. The factory plastic fender flares often hang down too low on the Jeep and can stop you from being able to use your Jeep off road due to tire rubbing and poor articulation. The Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares allow you to head off road without your sway bar attached and articulate the way you need to while conquering the obstacles in front of you. You will experience better performance overall. Made from steel, you will find that these fender flares hold up better over time, as they do not bend or crack when you knock into an object. Your new flat fenders will add clearance where you need it and open up your wheel wells while keeping your Jeep street legal. These simple flares are stripped down, basic, and inexpensive for a clean and raw look on your Jeep. Covered in a textured black finish, you will find that the Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares are easy to install and make use of your inner fender flares for convenience.

    Steel Construction. When you want solid protection and durability, the Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares deliver. Made from thick, solid steel and powder coated in black, you will be impressed at how smooth and strong these fender flares are. Each fender flare has been designed to hug your Jeep tight and provide you with the tire clearance needed to take on any obstacle in your path.

    Hardware Is Included. All of the hardware needed to install these Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares is included in the kit. You will find that you do need to drill a bit to install these fender flares and the installation process is considered to be simple to moderate in complexity. With a bolt-on installation, you can expect modifications to be limited and you can expect installation to take about three hours to complete.

    Warranty. The manufacturer offers a limited lifetime warranty so buyers can pick these up and know they're covered.

    Application. These fender flares fit 2007 - 2017 JK Wranglers. All installation hardware is included in the kit.

    For the front pair - is there an issue with them being street legal? ie. There's no turn signal light.

    hahvahd

    • Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares are very small, and may make them not street legal based on your state. I would recommend checking the local authorizes or DMV to see what would make the vehicle not pass inspection.

    AndrewM

    are these flares compatible with the factory fender inner liners?

    MichaelP

    • Yes, you can reuse your factory fender liners with the Smittybilt XRC Fender Flares. You will need to trim and modify the stock liners slightly to fit.

      Awesome fenders. Easy install.

      These fenders are heavy duty and have a great finish. Installation was a breeze. It took about an hour and a half to remove the stock fenders and install the Smittys. I had watched a YouTube video a coupe day before they arrived and everything was straight forward. They make my JK look aggressive. I installed aftermarket front fender liners and for the rear I just sanded with 150 grit sandpaper and painted with Rustolium bedliner paint. With my 35s and the new smitty fenders the Jeep stands out.

      Most impactful modification you can make

      I started upgrading my 2014 Wrangler with all new LED lights and more meaty 31” tires and wheels. Then side rails, then a radical front bumper, a new rear bumper with heavy tire rack. It looked great but still needed something so I ordered the Smittybuilt powder coated steel fenders which totally transformed the vehicle. It looks amazing. The quality is excellent and installation was easy as can be. In addition, they are exceptionally well priced. The best modification you can make!

      XRC Fender Flares Rough Country Liners

      Love the look. However, installation wasn't the simplest thing. They are compatible with one another but use many of the same holes which led to several minor procedural modifications needed on the fly to do things correctly. Overall, not a painful process, but sure helps having the right tools and the patience and that's coming from experience with these types of projects.

      Look great

      Not only to these look great they were a super easy install. Other reviews say you had to drill holes so I was a little Leary at first. The only thing you have to “drill” are 5 self tapping screws on the rear fender super easy and a great addition to my build for the price

      Smittybilt fenders on a 2015 JK

      If you are looking for perfect fit these are not the fenders fit you. I’m definitely not happy I found this out when installing them. The leave a gap in the rear where the stock finders did sit. The fenders aren’t too hard to install but it’s easier with two folks one holding one bolting. I called regular ding the issue and sent pictures and they were nice and easy to talk with but I would not spend the money on these if I had the chance again.

      Fit and function

      I recently purchased this fender set and they fit what I was looking for. They came very well packaged with not a scratch even though the box was pretty neat up. The only improvement I’d suggest is using nut certain instead of the self tapping screws on the rear fenders makes installation even easier and the mounting solid

      Great Flares for the price

      Okay so just to begin with, I know these flares have some bad reviews claiming they don't fit. But, that's just because people didn't install them right. These come with bolts to put on first and then self tapping screws to finish it off. Just remember to loosely bolt on from the outside to the inside. If you don't do this right, they will be off center and then you'll be left wondering why they don't fit. These are great flares that will take anything you throw at them and they give you plenty of space for larger tires as well.
