Our steel fender flares are the perfect choice for those who want to enhance the appearance and function of their 1984-2001 4 door Jeep Cherokee. These fender flares are designed to be welded by the user, and are made from laser cut and formed 11 gauge steel for a strong and stylish look. With a 3-3/8" flare width and clearance for 35" tires, these fender flares are ideal for off-road adventures.

Once the fender flares have been welded, installation is simple with a bolt-on design that requires drilling of the factory fenders. All necessary stainless steel hardware is included. These fender flares are sold as a set of two (one left, one right), and ship in bare steel ready for welding. Whether you're looking to improve the look of your Jeep Cherokee or add some functional enhancements, these fender flares are the perfect choice.

Experience in welding is necessary to assemble this product.

After waiting for them to arrive (later than quoted) I was excited to get started on them. There was fitment issues from the beginning. The outer lip pieces weren't even close to fitting so I had to improvise and make them into flat flares. Then I got them raptor lined and ready to install and the passenger rear panel was way off. There's about a half inch gap behind the rear door and it stuck past the tail light about a half inch and the rear 3 holes were on the corner of the body at the tail light so I had to drill 3 more holes and cut the excess off and deal with the gap. After trying to contact dirtbound/max about these issues in different ways, it has been over a month and they have chose to ignore my messages. All things considered from the situation I cannot and will not recommend these. Their quality control and customer service is not great

Great product. Only thing I didn’t like was in the picture the armor has the tail that runs behind the front fender flare for mounting purposes and my diy kits armor was cut flat at the door. Not a big deal just just relief cut the flare and added in some bends then welded to get it closer to the door. Gap was roughly 1-1/4 inches. Feels good buying something actually made in the USA!

I really liked these products. Got them welded up and on my xj.
Even thoughtful enough to put a make shift tool for the riv nuts.
