The Jeep JK thin sheetmetal fenders and stock plastic flares are among the most vulnerable body components when traversing the trail. The Poison Spyder JK Rear 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 departure angle and outer tire clearance. Steel Crusher Flares and Poison Spyder exclusive Inner Brace system are the ultimate in fender armor for your JK, with the toughness to withstand punishing scrapes with granite canyon walls. This product is finished in black with Poison Spyder proprietary SpyderShell Armor Coat process.
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 cant 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 JK inner body tub structure. Competitors JK Flare products simply bolt directly to the outer layer of the JK 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. These Inner Braces are CNC laser cut, brake-formed for a great fit and simple installation.
Provisions for LED Marker Lamps
The JK Rear Crusher Flare Kit comes standard with mounting provisions to place a small 3/4 inch LED marker lamp inside the flare just rearward of the tire. The LED can be wired in to the Jeeps running lights or turn signal circuits. 3/4 inch amber LED lamps are available separately from Poison Spyder.
Steel or Aluminum?
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 JKs 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 wall thickness. Compared to our steel Crusher Flares which use .120 wall DOM steel tubing. The thicker tube wall recoups some of the strength lost by going to aluminum, however the steel versions will still be stronger in a direct impact with the rocks. Aluminum JK Crusher Flares are less than half the weight of the steel version. Which is best for you will depend on your particular intended use of the Jeep, driving style and other factors.
