Need more clearance in the rear

after doing some flexing i found that i need more clearance in the rear...i am doing tube fenders in the front to help with that but no clue what to do in the rear???? any ideas? i really hate to cut the flares.
AND YES I KNOW MY REAR SHOCK IS DISCONNECTED...IT WAS TO SHORT AT THE TIME OF PICS

There is no way to gain clearance without cutting in your case. Why not match the rear fenders with tubes as well, and open up the wells while you're at it?

Well that looks like great flex to me, but TJ flares will get you another inch or so, an inch body will get you another inch, but if you really wanna go all out, just comp cut the sucker.

i want a clean look and i was thinking about doing the comp cut because i am looking to stretch the wheelbase in the future. already running a 2" body lift. and not that big of fan of the tj flares but i will do what it takes to get more clearance.....i wanna see how much flex i can get out of it and dont want the body to stop it.
ULTIMATE.....i did a search for rear tube fenders but didnt come up with much......any ideas on who makes some decent ones. also how would i open up the wells with tube fenders?

OH AND THAT FLEX IS WITH BRAND NEW 2.5" PROCOMP SPRINGS!!! everyone says they are very stiff but i think they seem to flex pretty good

For tube fenders with the max clearance, go Metalcloak.

http://www.metalcloak.com/Default.asp

Expensive, but I'm pretty sure they will give you the most clearance out of anything. On a TJ you can run 35's with stock suspension and metal cloak original fenders. Simontuffguy on the forum has 2.5" of lift on 33's with metal cloaks and he could easily fit 35's under there.

i really like the metalcloaks but.......$$$$$$ i think i would rather do a comp cut than spend that much especially since i am looking to stretch it in future. anyone else make tube fenders for the rear that i wont have to sell a kidney to buy...

Nope. If you want clearance from fenders you're going to have to go full replacement. The only other company I would recommend is TnT customs, but they're also very expensive. Go metal cloaks up front and comp cut the rear, add some comp corners from Gen Right

GenRight, COMP Cut Full Corner Guards

Or you could go with the GenRight Hi-Line kit

http://www.genright.com/ProductInfo....ductid=TFF4XXX

Paired with their comp cut corners

after checking out genrights website i really like the 4" Hi-flare......
Tube Flares, 4" REAR Hi-Fender

seems like a pretty cheap way to get alot of extra clearance if that is the only thing i need to buy....i was looking at the comp cuts and the only ones they list are for stretch wheelbases and im not ready to do that just yet
