CC Fabs fenders hoodline no flare fenders owners

I know this has been discussed in the past, but now that some have had their hoodline no flare fenders installed for sometime now, any regrets or feedback with your experience with that particular fender on and offroad?

I like the look no flare CC fender, but remember with my TJ X with factory fenders, rubi flares and 12.50's, I'd get some "blow" back mud and spray on the windshield. So kinda wondering if this is excessive with the no flare fenders.

Thanks!

Ken

Since no one has replied, I'll offer up my experience with the CC Fabs 3" hoodlines. My tires stick out 3" or so, and yes, you get stuff thrown off the tires. Not so much on the windshield, but inside the cab.

I do mostly rock crawling, so I just get a little mud/dirt. And it's not my DD, so I don't drive it in the rain.

If I lived in Alaska, I'd want better coverage - probably full tire coverage...

What Stan said. I helped put on a set of these and they are great fenders for the price. No one ever heard of mud here but I have witnessed several pounds of sand landing in the drivers seat.

I have the 3 inch hood lines on my jeep with 12.50s and Stan is 1000% correct.

Thank you for the replies.

Stan, thank you for taking the time to post a picture.

I've been on the fence between no flare and the 3" flare, all the pics I've seen I didn't get the "perspective" I wanted on the 3" flare to see how they really look and what the line of the fender really is. Your picture gave me that image Stan.

Sold the TJ 5 years ago, so thanks guys too for reminding me of what ends up inside as well with the doors off or windows down.

I'm just gonna throw it out there but there are other full fender companies that give you many flare options with the same fenders.

That being said I really like the ccfabs fenders and a huge fan of the rear flares with the huge openings.

Thanks to one of your other posts - those are the ones that I have on the rear.

The picture is a shot when I was on an RTI ramp with my 35" tires. (I think I could fit 37s )

As a side note, I did a bunch of cutting in the rear to get clearance - I've only got 2.5" springs.

For reference, the manufacturer of the rear flares is?

Thanks!

Is that one with a "stock" location? I've been thinking of doing the waggy springs with the off set perch, and would like the tire to still fill the wheel well like that.
