yeah but he helped design the damn thing. He gets credit where credit is due. The only reason why he doesn't build them himself is because proto has a much larger shop.
I've got a set of the flares and the flares themselves hold up well hitting stuff I've slid into trees and such and done nothing to them besides scratch the paint off. Their weak point at least on mine are the bolts that hold them on. Two of them have busted off from the flare easy to fix just an inconvenience.redzjon31's said:Let us know how they work out for you, especially when you hit something, but really i wanna know how well they will hold upjeepbus1 said:I just puchased the Iceland offroads flairs and bumper .Have not installed them yet.They are top quality. Don't be scared of the fiberglass.
Bushwackers flares aren't fiberglass...they are plastic. Now I'm not saying that they are any better or worse than the Icelands. But if you look at fiberglass and how it reacts to getting slammed around, then take a look at plastic of the same design, thickness, or what have you I would think the plastic would hold up better to abuse...just my 2 cents as well ;-)as far as the iceland flares go....you ppl do realize that most non grand jeep owners do buy and use fiberglass fender flares(example=Bushwacker),pay a fair amount for them and wheel with them.So why is there a problem with us zj's running them? As far as trashing them on the trail, that depends on the type of wheeling you do. Most zj owners wheel their rigs but don't trash them....... just my 2 cents.
As for price vs. lift? if i was to add more lift then 4.25 I have, then I'd need a SYE kit and a new driveshaft and new upper control arms ,that would cost me way more then the flares.
