    Poison spyder crushers

    Hey, I just ordered my poison spyder crusher flares and I wanted to know if anybody had any tips on how to install them or if anybody ran into any issues while installing them. I heard there nutsert tool is REALLY bad, so I'll probably just pick up one from harborfreight. Any information helps and I really appreciate it. Thanks!

    I had them on one of my Jeeps a few years back. I absolutely hated them. There are so many other alternatives that are much cheaper.

    I really like mine. Not sure what there is to hate about them so interested in what that was. I like em' but had someone else install them and that might be some of the "bad" with these. They are sturdy as hell and I have bashed the jeep hard up against rocks and trees...and no body creases. I was worried about that from stories, however, never had an issue since they aren't mounted only to the sheet metal.

    We installed a buddy of mines and the nutsert that comes with them is bad. Harbor freight or other tool places have a much nicer nutsert tool....good investment!

    Get a decent nursert tool. I bought one off Amazon for $60 and makes the install a breeze. Just make sure the nutsert is completely flush against the sheet metal before you press them in. Also buy a compact ratchet.

    Installed a few sets. They are a cake walk. Just get a decent nutsert tool with the correct mandrels and take your time.

    Nutsert tool is a must. Step bit is a must (standard bits suck). An extra set of hands or some good clamps to keep the fenders in place while drilling the holes. They were a huge pain to do alone, but I imagine with a second set of hands it would be much easier...

    You better have the steadiest hands ever if you're playing with a step bit on the Jeep's sheetmetal. lol

    I used the nutsert they provided and didn't have a problem. But did use some grease on it to keep things from binding up.

    Or you get the long narrow step bit and tape off at the correct size you need. Pretty sure Eddie and a couple other folks recommended this method to me when I asked the same question years ago... I had zero issues using this method but I also don't have Parkinson's

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
