Hurricane Flat Fender Flares for 97-06 Jeep TJ/LJ Wrangler

Following the success of its Hurricane Flat Fender Flares for Jeep Wrangler JK models (2007-2016), Rugged Ridge today announced it has its expanded the product line with new applications for 1997-2006 Jeep TJ/LJ Wrangler.

A popular and proven way to protect your Jeep’s paint and bodywork from rocks, mud or debris while driving on or off-road, Rugged Ridge’s Hurricane Flat Fender Flares bring the same twist of modern style and function to TJ/LJ Jeeps. Drawing inspiration from Omix-ADA’s historic Jeep Collection, the new Fender Flares feature the same aggressive, never-before-seen off-road look that combines the popular modern pocket style with the traditional flat fender design first found on the 1941 Willys MA.

“We received so much positive feedback following the release of the flares for JK owners that we had to bring the same concept and design to TJ/LJ owners who were asking for something unique to set their Wrangler apart,” said Henk Van Dongen, Director of Marketing at Omix-ADA.

The Hurricane Flat Fender Flares feature a unique double bolt pocket as a modern spin on classic pocket flare styling. Engineered for both form and function, the fender flare’s unique shape complements the Wrangler’s rugged looks and lines, while mounting high upon the fender for extra clearance for oversized wheels and tires.

Each fender flare is constructed from durable black injection molded thermoplastic that can be painted or left unfinished. The Hurricane Flat Fender Flares come complete with a set of durable black corrosion resistant fasteners, so owners can further tailor the flares to their own tastes.

Rugged Ridge Hurricane Flat Fender Flares are backed by an industry-leading five-year limited warranty and are available at a retail price starting at $349.99

Rugged Ridge Jeeps and Girls!

So I get a lot of emails and it is hard to read everything that comes through sometimes, but when I get an email that says “Subject:  Jeeps and Girls Photo Shoot”…   I was sold – didn’t need to read it just sign me up!

A local photographer contacted us to use a few our Jeep Wranglers in a photo shoot with some swimsuit models. He is working on an car calendar and wanted to feature some offroad shots using a few of the built Rugged Ridge Jeeps. For some reason it wasn’t very hard to find guys willing to lend him their rigs for the day. These are some test shots we were sent from the initial shoot. Don’t worry there will be more pics to come as this was first round and we are currently scheduling a multistage shoot for this project.
