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 can't match the Jeep's 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!
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's inner body tub structure. Competitors' JK Flare products simply bolt directly to the outer layer of the JK's 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
JK Front Crusher Flares™ come standard with mounting provisions to replace the factory side marker with a high intensity 3/4" round LED marker light (sold separately in red, amber or clear/amber). The addition of the LED provides a more modern and refined look that complements the function and style of the Crusher Flare™.
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 JK's 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. For reference, an aluminum product general weighs 1/3 to 1/2 the weight of its steel counterpart. Which is best for you will depend on your particular intended use of the Jeep, driving style and other factors.
