    How much clearance do you gain with the Bushwacker cutout flares, the folks at Bushwacker would only give me the mounting dimmensions . I was just wondering if this would be a good alternative to a body lift.
    thanks

    Ask Gold Rush, he has flares on his 4" lifted rig with 36" tires that clear real good.

    I have 4" superlift HD springs in front and no sway bar and 4" Rancho Softride with a 2" block in the rear. Bushwacker cutout flares and 36" Swampers with no problems. I have come to HATE my BW flares! The trails are narrow around here and I have managed to break all of the flares. Squeezing between rocks or trees or just coming off a rock wrong bends and or breaks them into pieces. They were great when I ran the Mud Drag circuit but now that I am rock crawling I wish I didn't have them on. Just my $.02 on the subject.

    I had a body shop install them along with new floor boards, rockers,rear quarters,front fenders and hood and hinges so I'm not sure of actual extra clearance but I'm sure it's not more than about an inch or so.
