Poison Spyders Crusher Flares add hard core durability and great looks to your Jeep JK. Like in the front, the original equipment rear flares are flimsy plastic which can tear off and are easily damaged on the trail. Poison Spyders Rear Crusher Flares for JK are all-steel, precision-fabricated replacements that are built to handle extreme terrain. The Poison Spyder JK Crusher Flare provides tire coverage for up to a 40" tire (minor trimming of the inner sheet metal may be required for tire clearance). The Crusher Flares mounting plate is made of CNC laser cut 3/16 plate steel that has been brake-formed to fit the contours of the JKs flare mounting surface like a glove. The Crusher Flare rails are CNC-bent 1.5" X .120 wall DOM structural tubing, with a fender surface made of 1/8" laser-cut plate steel. The Crusher Flare mounts using stainless steel countersunk flat head cap screws that provide a low profile, great looks and corrosion resistance. Installation requires drilling and installation of the provided nut-sert fasteners. Poison Spyder supplies a simple nut-sert installation tool to facilitate the process. Crusher Flares are sold as bare steel. For added structural rigidity when hardcore wheeling, Rear Crusher Flares come with a 4-piece Inner Brace Kit. The Inner Braces are engineered to provide the internal structure to keep the Crusher Flares from deforming the Jeeps outer tub sheet metal on impacts. The components are laser-cut and brake-formed to precisely fit between the Jeeps outer sheet metal and the heavier gauge steel of the structural inner tub. The result is a Crusher Flare installation that will withstand serious hits from the rocks.
I am VERY pleased with this purchase!! The install was fairly easy and the end result is an extremely solid fender flare that will shrug off any rock face you can throw at it!!
I do have a couple "cons." For one, the install description is inaccurate. There will be drilling and maybe some cutting (depending on year of your JK and personal preference), and you would benefit greatly from having a unibit and a right angle drill handy during install.
Also, the Nutsert tool included in the kit is very capable of doing the job, but I recommend you order some extra nutserts and practice a few before you start the actual install. And the professional nutsert tool, while expensive, is well worth the price.
Lastly, these flares ship bare steel, so make sure you have a plan for paint/powdercoat before you start, it'll streamline the install.
But again, I am extremely pleased with this product and would recommend them to anyone looking for a solid, "ready-for-anything" flare!!
