Yeah you could beef them up by adding structural reinforcements, and they may actually keep your rif off trees etc.

The problem with the warriors flares are that they mount only to the fender skin. Not mounted to anything rigid...so if your rub them against anything hard like a tree or rock you take the chance of messing up your fender anyway... The tuBE WILL spread the energy better than the bushwackers

I agree that the wP metal flares can damage the fender due to the way they mount. If you do choose to modify them and somehow mount them to the frame as well, now you have the issue of the huge difference in body/frame movement.

They look like a cool product, time will tell if they help prevent body damage or cause body damage themselves. I've not read any reports either way.
