Fender Flares Picture Request

I am looking to replace the factory flares with aftermarket ones and there is so much available. I am shopping for wheelsand tires as well so wanted to see what different setups are folks using out there. 95 YJ with a 3" body lift right now. Since it is a 4 banger I am thinking about sticking to 33s unless someone can tell me otherwise.

Pictures of ANY aftermarket fender flares you got would be helpful!

What wheels/tires are you running? Depending on the size, there are different recommendations that can be made. I had the same question a month ago and decided against the 7" rugged ridge flares. I have 33x12.50's and the 7" flare would have stuck out a bit too far leaving the flare vulnerable to trees and whatnot instead of the tire. I chose to go with 6" Xenon's instead. I saw a set on ebay yesterday at a really good price. Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Xenon...mZ250868470928

Most recent pics I have are in this thread, they'll show the 7" Rugged Ridge flares from different angles. SOA on 33x12.50-15 rubber, 8" wheels, D44's front and rear with 1" spacers wheel spacers on the rear.

Before and after pics of the 7" flares for comparing against the stock flares;

Here's a pic of my old YJ it had the 7" rugged ridge flares, the tires are 33x12.50's on 15x10" wheels with 4" backspacing

I never had any problems of mine getting stuck on trees or rocks ,

Go For It. Re geared the little 2.5 does well. I'm running 35
BFG TA-KO's. With the 2.5L motor, every upgrade counts. It
runs great. Will it ever be a 4.0L Jeep, NO. But it runs very
well and does everything I want it to.

Bored out intake to match
19lb injector upgrade
Super Coil and Live Wires
14" electric fan conversion

There is no problem that can't be fixed if you throw enough money at it.

X2 you hit the nail right on the head ! if you look at my sig both of my wranglers were 2.5L's.

I ran 33's on them both with 4.88's, The also were treated to a Header, catback exhaust, 4.0 Tb/Tb spacer, ported intake to match opening, 19# injectors, cai, Eletric Fan conversion they ran great on the hiway and offroad.

My TJ had to get a reman engine after it threw a rod so the replacement was Bored .040 , shaved the head, mopar purple cam, and yellow terra roller rockers. with the all the other performance parts it was a pretty peppy for a 4banger

ebays, TAG 6" flares. I'm happy with them. I personally don't like the look of the 7" because I like my tires to hang out a little.
