In case you haven't actually felt a set of these, they're very hard plastic and because of the way they mount if they hit anything wheeling they'll break. My old Bushwackers were a little bit flexy but these are rigid and have no give. I don't think it will be long before I drag it against a tree or hit it on the ground and shatter one. Something to think about if you plan on wheeling with them. ....Steve

I touched a tree with mine and cracked from one of the bolts to the edge of the flare. Not a big deal at all but if I had hit any harder I think it would have wrecked the flare. The way they're mounted there's no way the flare can flex, it will either break or wreck the body panel.

yea I was expecting the mto break but looking in rearview they do flex some.
but I agree it seems they will break quicker then the TRD ones.

Maybe it had something to do with the -18 temperature or the way it hit but mine didn't flex at all. Hopefully I won't be running them into many more trees. .....Steve

my front bushwacker flares are both broken from stuffing the tire up into them. I'd just take them off if I didn't think the paint would be messed up under them.
