    I am looking for the best fender flares for my 76 Jimmy, i dont want to bolt on from the outside, so from what I have found Xenon is the way to go. If anyons has pics of what they look like on a rig, I'd love to see 'em. Also, if there is anywhere in Canada to get them from.

    Xenon's site has a picture of a lifted K5 with their flares on it. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.teamxenon.com/990016.html>http://www.teamxenon.com/990016.html</a>

    They would be my choice for regular flares as well. So much stronger and resilient than everyone else's plastic stuff./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    JCWhitney sells some decent ones that are flexable. If you do anything where you will be smacking them then I would consider looking into these out of function. Otherwise if you go with Xenon or Bushwacker types you'll smash them to heck if you meet a big rock or a branch that is good sized... yeah they have a warrenty, but who wants to be replacing them all the time....

    The Xenon flares look great, but what is the difference between Bushwacker and Xenon? I dont do too much off roading to need flexable flares. My supplier here can get some bushwacker flares tomorrow, but Xenon could take up to a month. Is it worth the wait? Price is about the same.
