Poison Spyder steel Crusher flares are constructed using 1.5 in. X .120 in. wall DOM 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. They’re CNC laser-cut from 3/16 in. thick steel mounting plate, and then 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 Poison Spyder steel Crusher flares are the only metal-armored flare on the market constructed with CNC roll-bent outer tubes. Using the latest technology in computer-controlled roll-benders to form these tubes results in several advantages. First, and most obviously, roll-bending results in a much more elegant product, with subtle curves matching the lines of the Jeep JK perfectly. Competitors’ products are easy to spot because parts made on traditional tube benders have sharp, segmented bends that simply can’t match the Jeep’s body lines as well.
The other benefit is that roll-bending is a gentler process, resulting in less weakening of the tube where it stretches or compresses around bends. Every pair of flares includes a set of inner braces that tie the flares in to the sturdier, heavier-gauge steel of the JK’s inner body tub structure—and high-quality rubber liners to place between the flares and the Jeep’s body sheet metal during installation.
