    Default Prestige, Bushwacker or other?

    As the title implies, which brand of fender flares should I choose? I've settled on the pocket-style look but just wondering if Bushwackers are worth the extra $60-$70 (Prestige is $310 for all four, Bushwacker is $377)? Prestige claims no drilling but it makes me wonder if that just means they are a "cheaper" flare. Is there a third or fourth brand I don't know about?

    How much is the discount? Will the discount put the cost between $310-$377?

    I have Bushwacker and am happy with them. Ultimately it's a personal choice. Don't forget to shop around and also factor in shipping. My Bushwacker's ran me $362.00 shipped when I bought them a year or so, ago...

    I have bushwacker on mine... I like the fact that they are made out of a fiberglass type material and can be sanded and painted.

    Not to imply that Prestige is bad, but Bushwacker is thicker plastic than Prestige.
