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 ,

Thanks for the ideas folks! At this point I have not purchased anything so point of this post was to get some ideas. I have 31x11.50.15s right now with a 3inch body lift. Shopping for new wheels/tires combo as well.

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.
