The Jeep JK's 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
Spyder's 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.
Steel JK Crusher Flares are constructed using 1.5" 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" 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" 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.
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 sheet metal.
But as any JK owner knows, the exterior sheet metal is very thin and
flexible. Simply bolting a heavy duty fender directly to the exterior
sheet metal 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 sheet metal 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 sheet metal, instead transferring those forces to
the much stronger inner structure of the Jeep. That's why we've 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.
Front Crusher Flares™ come with high quality rubber liners to place
between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body sheetmetal during
installation. The rubber liners provide help protect your Jeep's
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 Jeep's body. These liners are cut from premium EPDM rubber.
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
The JK Front Crusher Flare™ kit comes standard with mounting provisions
to replace the factory side marker with a high intensity 3/4" 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
