3/4" LED Marker LampsPoison Spyder 3/4" round, Amber lens LED lamp for use as a combination turn signal and running lamp, for use with Poison Spyder Customs DeFenders™, Tube Fenders, Crusher Flares™, or anywhere you'd like to mount them by drilling a 3/4" hole in a flat panel. This is a 3-WIRE assembly, meaning it can be used as both a turn signal AND a marker lamp simultaneously. It can also be used as only a marker lamp (or only a turn signal) by using two wires and leaving the third wire unused. These high quality LED lamps are DOT-approved for use on your vehicle. Includes pigtail harness and mounting grommet. Sold as each (select a quantity of 2 if you need a pair).
NoteThis item is NOT intended as a direct replacement for any "stock" turn signal or marker lamp. It does not plug directly into the vehicle's wiring harness—it will require cutting and splicing into the vehicle's wiring harness.
Crusher FlaresThe Jeep JK's thin sheetmetal fenders and stock plastic flares are among the most vulnerable body components when traversing the trail. The Poison Spyder JK Front Crusher Flare™ kit improves both the aesthetics and durability of your Jeep during your off road adventures. Poison Spyder Standard Width JK Crusher Flares™ provide tire coverage similar to the factory flares, with the added advantage of a better approach angle and outer tire clearance. Aluminum Crusher Flares™ are the perfect balance between strength and light weight, at less than half the weight of the steel Crusher Flares™ This product ships as bare aluminum—it will need to be painted or powder coated prior to final installation. We do not offer a powder coat option for this item.
ConstructionAluminum JK Crusher Flares™ are constructed using 1.5" X .188" wall annealed aluminum structural tubing as the outer "rub rail". This .188" wall tubing is thicker than the .120" wall tubing used in our steel Crusher Flares, to provide better resistance to crushing, kinking, and bending than competitors' aluminum flares made with .120" wall aluminum tubing. The foundation of the Crusher Flare is a CNC laser cut, 3/16" thick aluminum 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. NOTE: Aluminum JK Crusher Flares DO NOT include a laser-etched Spyder logo along the lower edge. That feature is included on steel versions only. Photos in the gallery that depict the laser-etched Spyder are of the steel version of the Crusher Flare.
Exclusive Inner Brace SetEvery 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 IncludedJK Front Crusher Flares™ come with high quality rubber liners to place between the Crusher Flare and the Jeep's body sheetmetal 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 WellsWhen 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 LampsThe 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™.
Best Looking FlareThe Poison Spyder JK Crusher Flare™ is designed to be an aesthetically pleasing match to the curves and bends of the JK's body lines. Compare the appearance of a properly installed Crusher Flare™ to competing flares with straighter tubes, sharper bends, and an overall appearance that just looks out of place on the JK.
Inner Brace KitTransfers impact forces through the Crusher Flare™ to the sturdy inner tube of the Jeep, which is made of much thicker material than the thin sheetmetal exterior skin. Metal JK flares that do not have inner braces just bolt directly to the flimsy exterior sheetmetal, and can dent or crease that sheetmetal if the rigid flare bumps into rocks, trees, etc.
Steel or Aluminum ConstructionCrusher Flares™ are available in either heavy duty steel or light weight aluminum, to suit the needs of a wide variety of Jeep owners and their four-wheeling requirements. Choose steel for heavy duty ruggedness, for use on Jeeps that see a lot of time in the rocks and hard core wheeling. Opt for aluminum when weight savings is an issue, or on Jeeps that will only see mild off-road use with reduced chances of encounters with the rocks.
Standard or Narrow WidthCrusher Flares™ are available in either Standard or Narrow Width. Standard Width approximates the width of the stock plastic flares, for those who want to maintain stock tire coverage to satisfy local laws or protect more against water and mud kicking up from the tires. Narrow Width flares are more suited for dedicated trail rigs where extreme tire clearance and articulation are more important, or where fender width laws are less of a concern. Please check your local regulations to see what fender width rules apply in your area.
3/16" Thick Mount PlateThe mounting plate is CNC laser cut and precision brake-formed for a great fit to the Jeep JK's flare mounting surfaces. This thick material helps spread impact loads over a wide area, reducing potential damage. Mounting holes are countersunk so that flat head hardware may be used for a sleek, flat surface.
1.5" OD, .120" Wall DOM TubingSteel Crusher Flares™ use a 1.5" diameter, .120" wall Drawn-Over-Mandrel (DOM) high strength structural steel tube as the outer "rub rail". Compare this to competing products on the market which use weaker welded seam tubing, which is less resistant to bending and kinking than DOM.
.188" Wall Aluminum TubingAluminum Crusher Flares™ employ a 1.5" diameter, .188" wall annealed aluminum tube as the outer "rub rail". This is the component of the flare that is most likely to come in contact with rocks and other obstacles. The thick wall of the aluminum tubing helps to guard against denting and bending. This tube is formed in an NC bender and securely fixtured during assembly to ensure quality.
3D-CAD Designed Assembly FixturesCrusher Flares™ are built in assembly fixtures that were designed simultaneously with the Crusher Flares™ themselves. The process involves using 3D Computer Aided Design and an actual 3D solid model of the Jeep JK to render the subtle curves and compound surfaces of the JK. The manufacturing process using these fixtures is similar to building the part in-place, right on the Jeep, with fixtures to hold each component securely in place while welding it all together, ensuring against heat warping. The result is the best looking, best fitting, easiest to install, most consistent quality Crusher Flare™ ever produced.
Rubber LinersRubber Liners mount between the Crusher Flare™ and the Jeep's sheetmetal to cushion the area and help keep moisture and debris from lodging between the flare and the Jeep's body.
Wheel Well Mounting ProvisionsHardware, brackets, and instructions are included to aid in trimming and re-installing the plastic factory wheel wells. This helps maintain a finished look while helping to keep water and road debris from splashing up into the engine compartment.
