JK Front Crusher Flares Standard Width (Steel) Black for Jeep Wrangler JK 2007-2016. The Jeep JKs thin sheetmetal fenders and stock plastic flares are among 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 Standard Width JK Crusher Flares provide tire coverage similar to the factory flares, with the added advantage of a better approach angle and outer tire clearance. Steel Crusher Flares and Poison Spyders exclusive Inner Brace system are the ultimate in front fender armor for your JK, with the toughness to withstand punishing scrapes with granite canyon walls. This product is finished in black with Poison Spyders proprietary SpyderShell Armor Coat process.
Steel JK Crusher Flares are constructed using 1.5 inch 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 inch thick steel mounting plate, precision brake-formed to conform to the subtle curves of the JKs 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 inch aluminum plate, which is hand formed around the curves of the Crusher Flare for a factory appearance that matches the JKs organic body lines better than any other aftermarket metal flare available.
Roll-Bent Outer Tubes
Poison Spyder Crusher Flares were the first all-metal armored flare on the market when the Jeep JK debuted with the 2007 model year. Since then dozens of companies have tried to duplicate the original. But Poison Spyder stays a step ahead, and now Crusher Flares are the only metal armored flare on the market constructed with CNC Roll-Bent Outer Tubes. Using the latest technology in computer-controlled roll-benders to form these tubes results in several advantages. First, and most obviously, roll-bending results in a much more elegant product, whose subtle curves match the lines of the Jeep JK perfectly. Our competitors products are easy to spot because parts made on traditional tube benders have sharp, segmented bends that simply canNot match the Jeeps body lines as well. The other benefit is that roll-bending is a gentler process, resulting in less weakening of the tube where it stretches or compresses around bends. Only Poison Spyder Crusher Flares are manufactured with this state-of-the-art CNC roll-bending process!
Spydershell Armor Coat
SpyderShell is more than just powder coating—its a complete system that includes the state of the art in preparation, application, materials and packaging to ensure that your SpyderShell products stay looking great for years. The SpyderShell process has been engineered to provide your Poison Spyder product with years of unmatched great looks, corrosion protection and weather-resistance. Our proprietary 6-stage system starts with media blasting the entire part, to remove contaminents and prep the metal surface for the best possible adhesion. Next, any seams are sealed with 3M Scotch-Weld to block moisture from entering and causing corrosion where the powder can Not reach. The first coat to be applied is a zinc-rich powdered black primer, which is baked on to form an impenetrable bond between the metal product and the coating. The primer is black--rather than traditional gray--so that any rock chips or trail damage are less conspicuous. The final top coat is an industrial grade, super-durable architectural finish in semi-gloss black, which is engineered to retain its appearance through years of exposure to sun and weather. SpyderShell is a coating process unmatched by any other Jeep armor aftermarket manufacturer, for which we are confident in offering a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship.
Exclusive 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 JKs inner body tub structure. Competitors JK Flare products simply bolt directly to the outer layer of the JKs 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. Thats why weve 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 Jeeps body sheetmetal during installation. The rubber liners provide help protect your Jeeps 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 Jeeps 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.
Optional Aluminum JK Inner Fenders
For a custom look customers may opt to install Poison Spyders aluminum JK Inner Fenders (sold separately) rather than trimming and re-installing the stock plastic inner fender liners. The JK Inner Fenders are CNC laser cut from aluminum sheet, CNC bead rolled for a custom appearance and extra rigidity, then precision brake-formed to fit into the Jeep JKs front wheel well and integrate perfectly with the Crusher Flares.
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 inch 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.
