Man, these are a nice looking alternative to the OEM plastic flares and Bushwackers....

Warrior FJ Cruiser Tube Flares

But they are $$$...guess they go on the wish list...

Anyone have any experience with these?

I looked at those a while back and didn't carry them because they mount to the factory attachment spots and I was looking for something beefier. If y'all are interested I'll be happy to get pricing.

So Steve, in your opinion, are these good? bad? why or why not?

I think they are good if you are looking for something to replace the stock flares that are stronger. In that case then I'd go for them.

I have NOT looked at a pair in person. They looked beefy enough to me over the interwebs, but for the Southeast Overland FJ I wanted something whose attachment points were as beefy as the tube themselves since it was at the time between these and tubes welded between my sliders and bumpers.

I requested pricing info and will let y'all know.

Does anyone know if they stick out further than the stock flares?

It looks to me from the link in the first post that the front flares stick out a little more, and the rears even a bit more but I don't know that for sure.

I like the way they look but if the mounting points are that beefy then why get beefy flares? My $.02

I received dealer info today from Warrior. I'll look it over and post up ASAP. I think we could do a NCFJCruiser forum sale pretty easily if anyone was interested...

I looked at them and although they appear to be well built, they anly attach to the fender. The stock flares will take a lot of abuse, I pushed on mine and although scratched they come back.

The metal flares are going to transmit that energy straight into the fender. You are going to want to lean on them, it's natural.

Now if you bought a set of them and tied them back to the frame, now you are talking!!

I'd worry with how much the FJ Cruiser body flexes having the flares tied both to the body and the frame. I'd prefer one or the other.

A friend has tube bent and tied between his bumpers and sliders to protect his fender areas. With body flex one of the 4 corners actually comes in contact with the the body and has rubbed paint off.

You are talking about Ricks rig. Jerry (MTBCOACH) did the same with his.

I think if you tie the flares back to the frame and not tie to the body you would be OK. There would be some rubbing but I think that you could offset them a bit an minimize that rubbing.



You are right on track about body movement on the frame. Much of that is also frame flex as well. Anything that you do will be a compromize. Keep in mind that Rick and Jerry's set up ties the bumers to the sliders. With that arrangement the whole "ring" moves and flexes together.

With the supported fender flares, they move independent of each other. So how the rub on and move with the body will be different. Only one way to find out Smile
