It's a "down the road" decision for me, but I'm leaning toward metal River Raiders. Sheer durability!

Good set of metal ones and never look back or regret your purchase.

Scratch em and scuff em, then hit them with a rattle can and they are new again.

IF your are going to go plastic, just cut the stock ones. I think cut stock flares look better than any after market plastic flares. I have cut stock flares now, but will get POison Spyder flares eventually (after i get my 2 door crusher corners....not the stock tail light version).

1 vote for River Raider

I went with the Bushwackers. Not real happy. They don't fit very well. Also with the four door, short people tend to want to slid out of the lifted jeep and hold on to the door and rear fender as they do and it almost comes off everytime.

When the bushwackers do get wacked, I'm going with River Raider most likely.
