Poison Spyder Crusher Flares or River Raider Fenders

I was just wondering if anyone had any comments on which ones they prefer as far as engineering and style. I'm ready to pick some up. PS has some inner brackets for extra support etc I read so maybe those are designed a little better (??) thanks

I have not seen the RR ones up close. I have seen many sets of the PSC and they are top quality and the fit and finish is second to none

I can only comment on the PSC, I really like mine. Rears coming as soon as they finish my set up.

Do you plan on parking on top of them?

River Raider and PSC both make great stuff and are both great people to deal with. When it came to the flares I am partial to the PSC...

I'd love to get a set of either! Probably would go PSC, though, just like the angled design a little better. Both would more than likely be top-notch quality.

If you go with PSC prepare for a long semi-custom install. But awesome once they are on. I've heard RR install is easy

not really interested in a long custom install for the fenders right now. Both look great and like both companies a lot. Thanks for comments

Can't go wrong with either IMO... both are great products. I do like the option of having the RROR's epoxy lined from the shop.

Semi-custom? How do you define "semi-custom"? I believe you are misleading. I love my PSCs!

The install was pretty straight forward on my fronts, it took a few hours taking my time by myself.

I think most rig owners are going to tell you what they purchased is the best. But, collect enough opinions with accompanying details, and you'll hopefully have enough information to make, well..., an informed decision.

I went RROR and have been pleased. I think if you go RROR or PSC, you won't be going wrong, and either will take you the better part of a day or two to install, depending on if you have help or not. Either way, be patient, clamp, measure, step back, evaluate. Then, take a break, re-evaluate, make adjustments, re-clamp, re-measure, and re-evaluate. Then mark and drill.

If you'd like to see the River Raider fenders on my rig, check out my build...

I have the PSC flares. They are tough and can take a hit and they look sexy for sure.

But.....install was a nightmare. Holes did not line up on mine and they made the sheet metal wavy above the front fenders. Fit was so bad on my rears, that I couldn't even use the rear braces. I am going to modify the rear braces to make them work.

Once I got them on, I have been very satisfied with their function. I repaint them once in a while and they look new again.

The RR looks good too, but I have no personal experience with those.

I have both the front and rear supports and installation went fine without modification. I will say, it did take some effort, but installation was okay.

I’m kinda partial to the Poison Spyder Crusher Flares. It seems the 2 door guys are having issues with the install and the four door guys aren’t. Our 3D models from Chrysler show the installs to be the same, so we’re somewhat baffled. We’ve installed several 2dr flare sets here at the shop and have had no issues. We even had Marcy and Cortney install a set on JKO TV. Even though Chrysler says they’re the same, we know in reality that no two Jeeps are identical. Because of this we have run across situations where redrilling the factory holes is easier than trying to make them work.

Our install is more complex than a set without inner support bracing, but I think you’ll find it well worth the effort. Why use a metal flare if it’s not supported by more than the VERY thin factory outer skins? You can’t really call it armor if it’s not supported. We a very happy to answer any install questions you may have. A phone call may save you from a semi-custom install.
Thanks for considering our Crusher Flares and don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.

I have set of the PSC flares. I can't comment on the RR ones, as I have never seen a set, but can make some comments on the PSC ones.

The lines of the PSC flares match the lines of the JK better than anything else out there that I have seen in either pictures or in person.

The PSC flares are stout. I know this because I have laid my junk into plenty of rocks and have given them some major gouges.... yet not a hint of any body damage or deformation. Hell... Larry had another Jeep parked up on his.... really, does there need to be any other indication of how strong they are?

Several of my wheeling buddies have seen first hand how I abuse the PSC flares and have in turn gotten them as well. Can't give much more of a recommendation than that.

YES. Larry needs to take the forklift... push against the flare until scooting the JK sideways... then, while scooting the JK sideways lift up on the flare as to tip the JK over. Such a video would certainly be CONCLUSIVE.

I would only be satisfied if the forklift was being driven by a guy in a gorilla suit, and in the background, there's a female midget spanking a pig. IMO.

Yep, you sold me on them when I watch you lay your jeep agaist the wall at BC109, then drive through with only scratched paint on the fenders.

Im just glad Im not ripping off the plastic ones anymore. Chasing those damn things down every weekend was getting old. I would have lost them again this weekend.

Well then, seeing you were getting a stiffy over my rear the other day.... I have something else for you to switch to as well. PSC will have a new weld in cross member to strengthen up the area where I hit mine. Soon brother!
