    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.

    5 Top Rated Questions

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

    • 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.

      TERRIBLE

      Yes they do the job and are cheap. Mine look god awful after only a year. They are so sun faded that they look grayish/ white! And I keep my jeep in the garage! They also attract dust and dirt, and are awful to try and clean.

      Looks Way Better

      It was a bit of a shock to find out my stock fender flairs literally come off by pulling until "you hear popping and snapping" but hey it was easy enough. The fit wasnt exactly lined up to the little ridge in the metal on my jeep but unless you are right up to it you cant tell. The welds were a little bit wider than I would have liked to see but overall it was a solid product. Couldn't see not giving it a 5 star for it.

      Smittybilt flares

      Easier install. Very simple. Back fenders didn’t seem to line up exactly with the old groves. But still a good look and fit. Only wish there were more inside flare instructions for cutting and reinstalling the factory to give it a cleaner look

      Xrc fender flares

      I love they way they look. But for a guy living in a place where it snows I wish they were a little more wide of a flare all the dirt flips up onto the doors. But I love the way the look a nice cheap fender that gets the job done well

      Good quality, easy install

      Good quality, metal fenders that seem like they will last a long time. Installation is very easy. All 4 were done in about an hour. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars is because they don’t quite line up exactly with the fender well. There is still some color metal showing underneath. Other than that, I would highly recommend them.

      Looks great but does not fit great

      Priced well and they look so amazing. Fitting them though was absolutely terrible for a non experienced person at working on cars/jeeps (that’s me). You have to drill two top middle bolts so they can fit all the way. In the rear you can put on the two top middle bolts but the rest you have to drill in tiny screws. I left the two bolts in the front lose because they are on there tight when the rest are on. In the rear I have only the two bolts on it and they are also tight on (personally I do not think the drilling is necessary they are on there pretty tight). But once again absolutely love how they look.
