JK Crusher Flares are now available in aluminum! These aluminum Crusher Flares are light weight—at only 11.8 lbs. per fender—yet durable. The Jeep JK's front fenders and flares are one of the most vulnerable body components when traversing the trail. The Poison Spyder JK Front Crusher Flare kit improves both the aesthetics and durability of your Jeep during your off road adventures.
Poison Spyder JK Crusher Flares provide tire coverage similar to the factory flares, with the added advantage of a better approach angle and outer tire clearance. Aluminum JK Crusher Flares are constructed from 1.5 inch X .188 inch wall annealed aluminum structural tubing in combination with 1/8 inch and 3/16 inch aircraft grade aluminum plate. The kit comes as a pair that fits both the two and four door models.
Not sure whether to choose steel or aluminum for your Crusher Flares? Aluminum is lighter in weight, so might be the best choice for those looking to save weight on their heavy JK's in order to improve fuel mileage and gain an advantage off-road. However, when wheeling with aluminum flares it is up to the driver to use more care and finesse, as the aluminum components are not going to be able to withstand the same direct impacts that steel can. The outer tube on our aluminum Crusher Flares is beefy .188 inch wall thickness. Compared to our Steel Crusher Flares which use .120 inch wall DOM steel tubing. The thicker tube wall recoups some of the strength lost by using aluminum, however the steel versions will still be stronger in a direct impact with the rocks. For reference, a steel JK Front Crusher Flare weighs 31.6 lbs not including hardware, while an aluminum one weighs only 11.8 lbs. Which is best for you will depend on your particular intended use of the Jeep, driving style and other factors.
The Crusher Flare kit utilizes stainless countersunk hardware to secure to the Jeep's outer skin and steel heavy duty internal brackets that are coupled to the sub-frame. The supporting sub-frame brackets give the Crusher Flare a solid platform and transfer impact load away from the outer sheet metal body. Additionally the JK Front Crusher Flare Kit comes with a pair of rubber gaskets that isolates the fender from direct contact with the Jeep paint and body. The .188 wall tubing and Inner Braces yield a lightweight aluminum flare that is stronger than any other aluminum flare on the market, and even stronger than steel flares that are not internally braced.
Poison Spyder JK Front Crusher Flares retain the factory wheel well liner to protect the engine from trail and road debris. Furthermore the reinforced sub-frame brackets are hidden to complete a clean and finished appearance. Some trimming of the inner liner is required.
The JK Front Crusher Flare kit comes standard with mounting provisions to replace the factory side marker with an updated 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. LED lamps and electronic flashers must be purchased separately.
