Need New Fender Flares

Im looking for some new fender flares. im going with a new tire a 33 by 10.50 mud terrain because the ones i have now arent great for gas mileage so i need somethin a lil smaller and i have 7 inch fender flares right now so im looking for somethin that wont stick out that far possibly 6 or 5 inch and im looking for somethin that will make my jeep look higher the ones i have now are 7 inch and i dont have a high lift so it just looks funny. So somethin that will make my jeep look rugged but still keep the mud off my jeep.

Whats this gas mileage you speak of? I really dont think that it is making that big of a difference. But I can understand you not thinking it looks good aspect. If you were to change the flares, anything other than factory style flares will cost you 150 or more. Thats at least what 4 or 5 tanks of gas?
The TJ flare conversion will give the looks of a bit more lift. If I were in your shoes, I would look for a set of TJ Rubicon flares.

What?! How much is gas near you? Cost me $45 to fill mine...:'(

Agreed, Tj flares are gonna be best all around: looks, clearance, coverage, etc.. I'm not sure how much wider the rubicon ones are but they can be harder to find and I'm not sure you'll need them with 33x10.5s although i don't know the backspacing of your rims..

Aerodynamics? I really dont think the flares are dragging you down that much.. A jeep is a box on wheels, flat grill, flat windshield.. Just curious to what kind of flares you are running now that you think changing them will make a huge difference..
