Bushwacker 2015 Ford F-150 Fender Flares Now Available

2015 Ford F-150 Fender Flares

When the 2015 Ford F-150 hits dealer lots, Bushwacker will be ready with accessories for the truck.

First out of the gate will be our Pocket Style Fender Flares. These easy-to-install flares offer 1.5 inches of additional tire coverage and help protect the paint on the new F-150 from dirt and debris while offering a rugged look. The flares are made from tough Dura-Flex 2000 material that is 100% UV-resistant and comes in an OEM matte-black finish that’s easy to paint. The flares include the edge trim and stainless steel bolts for a great bolted-on look. If you’re going to run tires that stick out past the factory fenders, our Pocket Style Fender Flares may also let you comply with local laws that requires a tire to be completely covered by a fender. And you thought they just looked cool!

For those looking for a smooth, customized look, Bushwacker Extend-A-Fender Flares are just the ticket. They feature the same benefits as the Pocket-Style Flares but with a different style. For F-150 owners looking add the appearance of an upscale trim package while adding a bit more tire coverage, our  “OE” Style Fender Flares are perfect. They also look great on sport trucks and lowered F-150s, too.

Whether you want a rugged, bolted on look; a smooth custom appearance; or an upscale OE style, Bushwacker has you covered.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Configurator Goes Live

2015 Chevrolet ColoradoYou can now build a 2015 Chevrolet Colorado on the Chevy website. The truck will be available in extended cab/long-box, crew cab/shot box, or crew cab/long box configuration. Base power will come from a 2.5-liter direct-injected four cylinder making 200 hp and 191 ft/lbs. of torque; the upgraded engine is a 3.6-liter V6 making 305 horsepower and 269 ft/lbs. of torque. And like we reported before, it looks like we’ll have to wait for the diesel option, as it isn’t listed for ’15. Even in gas form, however, the truck will be capable of getting a respectable 26 MPG (that’s in a 2WD with the V6).

Base price (not including tax, title, delivery) is $20,120 for a four cylinder, 2WD version. Check every option box, and a fully decked-out Z71 with the V6 and 4WD  amounts to $42,890.

Announcing The Bushwacker Founder’s Award

Bushwacker Founder's Award

The Bushwacker Founder’s Award

At the 2014 SEMA Show, Bushwacker will give the builder of the best truck or SUV our first-ever Bushwacker Founder’s Award. This award will be presented by our Founder, Jerry Logan, and will recognize a builder’s drive, creativity, dedication, and commitment to the automotive aftermarket as expressed through their truck or SUV build. The prize will be $1,500 and the trophy at the left. And if you’re building a rig for this show and it’ll have our products on it, you can also enter. More on that below.

The SEMA Show represents the pulse of the automotive aftermarket. It’s where trends are set, innovations are showcased, and where the world’s top builders come to show their vehicular masterpieces—and that includes amazing truck and SUV builds. We know builders put an incredible amount of time, energy, dedication, and passion into these trucks and SUVs, and beginning at this year’s show, we’re going to recognize that enthusiasm.

The idea behind the Founder’s Award is more than simply recognizing an outstanding truck/SUV at the SEMA Show—it recognizes a builder’s dedication and desire to drive industry passion in the automotive aftermarket. We know the incredible effort and commitment involved in building a SEMA vehicle. Months of hard work, determination, and drive get poured into these trucks and SUVs even though the vehicles are only on display for four days. Nevertheless, year after year builders from around the world present new, fresh, ground-breaking ideas that will set trends and further the automotive aftermarket.

Bushwacker's Founder, Jerry Logan

Bushwacker Founder, Jerry Logan

The presenter of this award, our Founder, Jerry Logan, at left, is a lifelong car and truck enthusiast. He started Bushwacker in 1967 by selling fender flares for Jeep vehicles out of his garage with only a handful of employees. As his enthusiasm for the automotive aftermarket grew, so did Bushwacker. Currently Bushwacker has more than 460 product applications, a 125,000 square-foot manufacturing facility, and 300 employees here in Portland, Oregon. That passion Jerry has for the automotive industry—that unrelenting drive for ingenuity, quality, and style—has never ceased. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

“Bushwacker has always been a business fueled by automotive and industry enthusiasm. For more than 47 years, we have been taking that passion and putting it into the products we manufacture. We will recognize an individual that shares that enthusiasm and present them our Founder’s Award,” says Jerry.

The Ford Bronco was Introduced Today in 1965

According to Motoramic, on August 11, 1965, Ford introduced the world to the Bronco. Yes, 49 years ago, Ford announced it’d offer its soon-to-be-iconic SUV as a 1966 model. In this great vintage commercial above, Ford refers to the vehicle as the “first four-wheel drive sports car.” That’s probably not how most people would refer to it today, but regardless, the Bronco secured its place in automotive history by creating capable, popular 4x4s over the years—sports car or not. The Bronco was offered for 30 years, ending production in 1996. And yes, there was the smaller-sized Bronco II offered from 1984-1990 that eventually gained two more doors and turned into the Explorer.

There were classes in everything from vehicle recovery and navigation, to wilderness first-aid and off-road driving. There were even classes on fly fishing, wine, and cooking. Bushwacker had a booth showcasing its array of products, and we met a host of new customers, old friends, and everyone in between.

Tiger Automotive Has a Door-Buster of a Grand Opening—Literally


There’s a grand opening, then there’s a door buster of a grand opening. And if you’re Tiger Automotive you do both—literally.

The Canadian automotive accessory retailer, which is based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, had quite a bit of fanfare around its new store opening, as seen in the video above. Local news crews came out, and the mayor of Saskatoon, a city of over 200,000 people, helped open the store. And when I say “open the store,” I mean he ripped the door open using a Toyota Tundra wearing a set of Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares. Talk about a grand opening!

And whether you live in Saskatoon, Sydney, St. Louis, or someplace else, you can use our dealer locator to find a Bushwacker dealer near you or find an online retailer. Just be sure to leave their doors intact.
