Mark Polk from RV Education 101 gives a great breakdown on how to install a set of Bushwacker Fender Flares on his Dodge RAM. The video covers painting the flares to match, and the basics of our no-drill installation. Be sure to watch if you’re unsure about installing fender flares:
Our friends over at N-Fab recently teamed up with Joe Gibbs Racing to compete in Toyota’s 2014 Dream Build competition, which pits five brand partners against each other to build the ultimate Toyota and win $50,000 towards charity. If the Joe Gibbs team wins, then they’ll donate the pot towards the Aesterisk Mobile Medical Unit and the Road to Recovery Foundation. The competing brands and vehicles are Kyle Busch Motorsports’ Rally Camry, Oakley’s ultimate sky 4Runner, Skullcandy’s Corolla, and Joe Gibbs/N-Fab Moto Tundra; voting is now open and we ask that you cast your ballot now!

What would you do with a Jeep Wrangler that was the length of a pickup? We recently asked ourselves this question as we unloaded a Brute double cab kit from AEV Conversions. Our first inclination was to prep it for serious off roading; so we paired it with a 2014 Jeep Wrangler JK Rubicon to take advantage of the hardcore 241Rocktrac transfercase.
If you’re not familiar with the Jeep JK Brute kit, it stretches the JK’s original frame 23″ for a total wheelbase of 139″, and adds an injection molded composite bed to the standard JK double cab. Designed to be an overlander’s dream, the Brute double cab draws its inspiration from the Land Rover Defender 130.
We’ve released two fender flare styles for the 2014 Toyota Tundra: the Pocket – with it’s unmistakable bolts and aggressive profile, and the “OE” - the perfect accent for a limited edition look! Both styles are now available to order from suppliers, search our dealer locator to find one near you.
2014 Tundra Pocket & “OE” Style Fender Flares offer Bushwacker’s original styling with additional tire coverage, allowing you to fit larger wheels and tires underneath your 2014 Tundra. Designed for the DIY mechanic, Bushwacker’s no drill process makes installation fast and easy! Available now, each set comes in a matte black finish, but can be easily painted to match.
Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, our 2014 Tundra Pocket Style Flares provide 1.75” of tire coverage, while the “OE” style offers .75″. Each style is made exclusively with Dura-Flex 2000 ABS; this high impact, low temperature material keeps your Tundra like new by deflecting rocks, dirt and debris away from the body. Each set is also 100% UV protected, which prevents chalking, fading, and cracking. Continue reading

We’re starting to see more and more 2014 Silverados built and ready to roll off the lot, and onto the work site! These two 2014 Chevrolet “Texas Edition” Silverados were built by Extreme Offroad & Performance in Katy, TX. One is done in blue granite metallic, while the other is in summit white, and both feature the “Texas Edition” emblem. Contact Extreme Offroad & Performance for more information on these builds, and their availability.

The 2014 Toyota Tundra is hitting dealerships now, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on a 1794 edition to shoot our Pocket and “OE” flares with. The ’14 Tundra Pocket Style Flare will offer 2″ of coverage, and the “OE” will provide 1″. Both flares’ release date is still TBD.
My first impression of the ’14 Tundra (besides the chrome) was that it felt crafted and refined. The interior oozed luxury with its soft brown leather seats, wood trim, and moon roof. While the bed opted for functionality with adjustable tie downs, and a floating tail gate. Continue reading
This ’99 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ build was a “under $10k” project by Dax over on Jeep Forum. It’s a blend of creative customization, and quality aftermarket parts – including our WJ Cut-Out Fender Flares, which have been modified to fit with a snorkel.

Yesterday we traveled up to Bell Off Road to check out the progress of our “Tux” build that will debut at SEMA. Needless to say, the concept drawing does not do this build justice! The paint matched Kelderman Air Ride Suspension gives this rig the flexibility to add nearly any tire size underneath our Super Duty Pocket Style Flares, but the biggest deviation from the drawing is the tires, bumpers, and rack.
We can all agree that the Interco M16 boggers are much more appropriate for this Super Duty than the low profile tires in the rendering, but what you don’t see are the custom bumpers and “fast back” roof rack. We were able to get a look at the rack and bumpers that Bell Off Road and Perkins Performance are working on, and we guarantee that you’ll love the design.
Stay tuned for more sneak peaks, but in the meantime check out this clip of the Kelderman Air Ride Suspension in action:
For over 47 years Bushwacker has built its reputation on manufacturing quality products and providing superior customer service. The Bushwacker brand, in partnership with Bell Off Road, has joined forces with some of the best aftermarket manufacturers to create a testament to automotive craftsmanship. Introducing Bushwacker’s 2013 SEMA show build: “The Tux”.
The Bushwacker team set out with two goals in mind for this 6.7L F-350 – to be clean and functional. A Kelderman 8″ to 10″ variable lift gives the 40″ x 15.5″ R20 Interco SSM16 tires plenty of clearance while AMP Research Powersteps help passengers leverage themselves into the custom “tuxedo” interior, which features an 8″ Alpine touch screen and Xbox 360.
Built with the weekend warrior in mind, The Tux will feature a 2014 Yamaha Grizzly 700 Stealth Edition in the bed with a custom headache rack complete with boat speakers, KC HiLites LEDs, bed rails, and stowage designed for the avid outdoorsman. A CargoGlide CG 2000 XL will sit beneath the ’14 Grizzly, and will provide unparalleled flexibility. Continue reading
