PORTLAND, Oregon, November 4, 2009 – Over the past 40 years, Bushwacker has built a reputation for manufacturing fender flares and truck accessories with innovative design and unmistakable style. And this year Bushwacker headed to SEMA in Las Vegas to introduce a new standard for innovative design, durability and body protection; Flat Style Flares and Trail Armor® for 2007-10 Jeep Wrangler JK 2-door and 4-door. Bushwacker was the talk of the show, beating out over 1,400 entries and winning Best New Exterior Accessory Product for JK Trail Armor® and 2nd Runner-Up; Best New Off-Road/4-Wheel Drive Product for Flat Style Flares.
Part of what makes JK Flat Style Flares and Trail Armor® award-winning is their blend of aggressive, street legal style with trail-worthy design that’s tough enough for even the most hardcore rock crawler. Unlike lower-quality fenders which can easily dent, crack and cause body damage when hit by trees or rocks, Flat Style Flares with exclusive Dura-Flex® 2000 TPO material can take a serious beating, flex without breaking and retain their original shape to help prevent body damage.
Flat Style Flares are also fully-molded and work with factory inner splash guards to protect exposed wheel wells and engine components from mud, dirt, sand and corrosive grime. The innovative design installs with existing factory holes and no drilling, enables maximum tire clearance for rub-free steering and features an impressive 8.5 inches front tire coverage and 4.75 inches rear tire coverage. Flat Style Flares also keep the JK street legal, equipped with custom-integrated, DOT-compliant LED side marker lights as well as OE tire coverage required by most state laws.
And for JK owners seeking a complete body protection system with easy, no drill installation, JK Trail Armor® components integrate perfectly with Flat Style, Pocket Style® and original factory flares. Not only does Trail Armor® help protect, but it also adds rugged looks at an affordable price. Available individually or as a complete set, JK Trail Armor® includes rocker panel/sill plates, tailgate panels, rear corner protectors, hood scoops and hood protectors.
Flat Style Flares and Trail Armor® are available in an attractive and durable light-textured matte black finish and like all quality Bushwacker products, they come with a free Limited Lifetime Warranty.
