2007-2016 Jeep Wrangler Front Steel Crusher Flares (Extra Wide) by Poison Spyder Customs
Measuring in at an extra wide 10 3/4" (vs 8 3/4 on the standard width), Poison Spyder's Crusher Flares add hard core durability and great looks to your Jeep JK. The original equipment front flares are flimsy plastic which can tear off and are easily damaged on the trail. Poison Spyder's Crusher Flares for JK are all-steel, precision-fabricated replacements that are built to handle extreme terrain. This product ships as bare steel—it will need to be painted or powder coated prior to final installation.
Steel JK Crusher Flares are constructed using 1.5" X .120" wall DOM (Drawn-Over-Mandrel) structural tubing as the outer "rub rail". This DOM tubing provides better resistance to crushing, kinking, and bending than competitors' flares made with thinner wall, welded seam tubing. The foundation of the Crusher Flare is a CNC laser cut, 3/16" thick steel mounting plate, precision brake-formed to conform to the subtle curves of the JK's body panels. Mounting holes are countersunk for the use of flat-head stainless steel mounting hardware. The top plate is CNC laser cut 1/8" aluminum plate, which is hand formed around the curves of the Crusher Flare for a factory appearance that matches the JK's organic body lines better than any other aftermarket metal flare available.
JK Crusher Flare Inner BraceExclusive Inner Brace Set
Every set of Poison Spyder JK Crusher Flares comes with a set of inner braces that tie the Crusher Flare in to the sturdier, heavier-gauge steel of the JK's inner body tub structure. Competitors' JK Flare products simply bolt directly to the outer layer of the JK's body sheetmetal. But as any JK owner knows, the exterior sheetmetal is very thin and flexible. Simply bolting a heavy duty fender directly to the exterior sheetmetal without the inner bracing is a disaster waiting to happen. Regardless of how sturdy the flare is built, upon contact with rocks, trees, etc., it will simply push in and deform the flimsy sheetmetal it is bolted to, possibly causing expensive and unsightly damage. The Inner Brace Set that comes with Poison Spyder Crusher Flares effectively bypasses the outer sheetmetal, instead transferring those forces to the much stronger inner structure of the Jeep. That's why we've been able to demonstrate the strength of our flare attachment system by parking another Jeep on top of the Crusher Flare! These Inner Braces are CNC laser cut, brake-formed for a great fit and simple installation.
Rubber Liners Included
JK Front Crusher Flares come with high quality rubber liners to place between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body sheetmetal during installation. The rubber liners provide help protect your Jeep's exterior paint, where the flare contacts it. It also helps even out the contact area of the Crusher Flare, absorbing any small bumps or imperfections between the mated surfaces. The rubber liner also helps keep moisture, dirt and debris from collecting between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body. These liners are cut from premium EPDM rubber.
Retain Factory Wheel Wells
When installing Poison Spyder JK Front Crusher Flares you have the option of retaining the factory wheel well liner to protect the engine from trail and road debris. Retaining the wheel well also helps to conceal the Inner Braces to complete a clean and finished appearance. Some trimming of the plastic wheel well is required, but the kit comes with hardware and mounting brackets to re-install the trimmed wheel well.
Provisions for LED Marker Lamps
The JK Front Crusher Flare kit comes standard with mounting provisions to replace the factory side marker with a high intensity 3/4" round LED marker light. The addition of the LED provides a more modern and refined look that complements the function and style of the Crusher Flare.
