DeFender XC Flares
DeFender XC Flares; Steel; 3 in. Tapered Flares; Brake-Formed 3/16 in. Plate Steel;
Poison Spyders DeFender XCs provide extreme Clearance for big tires without having to install a tall lift, maintaining a Low Center of Gravity and the performance benefits that come along with it. The XCs are constructed entirely of CNC laser cut, brake-formed 3/16 plate steel for strength and style . The wheel opening on the XCs is 3 higher than standard DeFenders, providing Massive Tire Clearance with minimal lift! DeFenders are the next evolutionary step beyond tube fenders. They are fabricated entirely from 3/16 plate, heavy duty P&O steel. CNC laser cutting and precision brake-forming yield a stronger, more functional, better-looking fender. The DeFender has an extra return, or lip along the underside of the fender, which provides better protection from cutting into a fully stuffed tire, while also lending extra strength to the outer edge of the fender, where it is most likely to come in contact with rocks, trees, etc. The DeFender XC with 3 Tapered Flare was designed for maximum performance in several aspects. First, it provides the same splash protection of our regular 3 flare, keeping mud and debris from splashing up onto the side of the Jeep. But rather than having a straight side, the edge of the flare tapers inward toward the front of the Jeep, in a line parallel to the tapered edge of the hood. In this manner it tapers from 3 at the back, to about the same width as our Zero Flare at the front, providing the same great clearance for articulating tires and tight trails that our Zero Flare provides. All TJ/LJ versions of the DeFenders come with a custom bracket for lifting the stock battery tray higher, to provide the extra clearance necessary for the DeFenders larger wheel opening. This bracket is CNC laser cut brake-formed and fixture-welded for an easy, clean installation.
