Poison Spyder 17-03030P1 Standard Width Steel Front Crusher Flares in SpyderShell™ Armor Coat for 07-17 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK
Steel JK Crusher Flares are constructed using 1.5" X .120" wall DOM (Drawn-Over-Mandrel) structural tubing as the outer "rub rail". This DOM tubing provides better resistance to crushing, kinking, and bending than competitors' flares made with thinner wall, welded seam tubing. The foundation of the Crusher Flare is a CNC laser cut, 3/16" thick steel mounting plate, precision brake-formed to conform to the subtle curves of the JK's body panels. Mounting holes are countersunk for the use of flat-head stainless steel mounting hardware. The top plate is CNC laser cut 1/8" aluminum plate, which is hand formed around the curves of the Crusher Flare for a factory appearance that matches the JK's organic body lines better than any other aftermarket metal flare available.
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. That's why we've been able to demonstrate the strength of our flare attachment system by parking another Jeep on top of the Crusher Flare! These Inner Braces are CNC laser cut, brake-formed for a great fit and simple installation.
Rubber Liners Included
JK Front Crusher Flares come with high quality rubber liners to place between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body sheet metal during installation. The rubber liners provide help protect your Jeep's exterior paint, where the flare contacts it. It also helps even out the contact area of the Crusher Flare, absorbing any small bumps or imperfections between the mated surfaces. The rubber liner also helps keep moisture, dirt and debris from collecting between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body. These liners are cut from premium EPDM rubber.
Retain Factory Wheel Wells
When installing Poison Spyder JK Front Crusher Flares you have the option of retaining the factory wheel well liner to protect the engine from trail and road debris. Retaining the wheel well also helps to conceal the Inner Braces to complete a clean and finished appearance. Some trimming of the plastic wheel well is required, but the kit comes with hardware and mounting brackets to re-install the trimmed wheel well.
Provisions for LED Marker Lamps
The JK Front Crusher Flare kit comes standard with mounting provisions to replace the factory side marker with a high intensity 3/4" round LED marker light. The addition of the LED provides a more modern and refined look that complements the function and style of the Crusher Flare.
SpyderShell Armor Coat
Poison Spyders SpyderShell Armor Coat has been engineered to provide your Poison Spyder product with years of unmatched great looks, corrosion protection and weather-resistance. Their proprietary 5-stage system starts with media blasting the entire part, to remove contaminants and prep the metal surface for the best possible adhesion. Next, any seams are sealed with 3M Scotch-Weld to block moisture from entering and causing corrosion where the powder can not reach. The first coat to be applied is a zinc-rich powdered black primer, which is baked on to form an impenetrable bond between the metal product and the coating. The primer is black--rather than traditional gray--so that any rock chips or trail damage are less conspicuous. The final top coat is an industrial grade, super-durable architectural finish in semi-gloss black, which is engineered to retain its appearance through years of exposure to sun and weather. SpyderShell is a coating process unmatched by any other Jeep armor after-market manufacturer, for which we are confident in offering a 5-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

Ok first I would like to say I think Poison Spyder has a great design team. But there finished product has a lot to be desired. I had heavy weld splatter all over the inside of the Crusher Fenders front and rear. The weld splatter was everywhere even in the counter sinks and to make it worse they powder coated over the splatter. Needless to say I was very disappointed with their craftsmanship.
These fenders are solid as can be. The additional supports to allow the fenders to fasten to the steel inner frame versus the exterior sheet metal only is worth every penny extra over some of the competitors. I love the look, the fit and the craftsmanship on these. They are very time consuming to install. It says 2-3 hours, it took me that long for the first side alone. Second side was bit faster after learning a thing or two on the first side. I have no doubt these will hold up for years and they look great. Be ready to drill a lot. And when it says they recommend you use a professional nutsert tool, do so. Trust me, it is life saver and saves time and probably damage. I also installed the inner fenders sold by poison spyder, so can't comment on the process for installing using the existing inner fenders but looks to be quite the process.
