remove the plastic fender pieces?
 
im curious to see how my jeep would look without the plastic fenders over the wheels, but before i do that i want to know what the law in oregon is as far as how far the tires can stick out of the body.. so if anybody knows please let me know.
thanks!

I still have stock tj flares my yj, they cover about half my tire. I've never been pulled over for it, I live in Portland. I've also seen a few yj's running with no flares. If I remember right, all the tire needs to be covered but I could be wrong.

Your best off with google on that one. Each states laws are different. I know with NC and FL you can all but have an AR attached to it and they pass. If you're wondering what it will look like, it will be similar to this.

Its a law that isn't enforced really here in Ontario, Canada. Everybody with modded Jeeps have their tires sticking out and its completely ignored. Removing the fenders all together may be pushing it though.

I been runnin this way for a few months now, the tires stick out about 8 inches because my wheels are so offset, but then again.. I live in Bandon.. No complaints so far!!

Think twice about removing. I took mine off, filled in hole when I painted it. First ride in slush I was putting them back on. Face full off road slush wasn't fun.

I took mine off and liked it (except for the holes), but I rode through a bunch of mud and stinky water... covered EVERYTHING@!!!! I now have a carpetless jeep.

If you remove them, consider at least picking up something like the Bushwackers or Xenons urethane(sp?) flares.

Remember, 3 inches can make a difference.

Carlos14 12-24-2012 09:45 AM

Remove them only if you plan on replacing. Which is what I did. Pulled them to put smittybilt tubes in the rear, and TJ flares in the front, but have since decided to go for tubes on the front as well. After Christmas. That's the only reason I have none up front still.



Oh and pulling them off sucks.

mrdeath2000 12-24-2012 09:49 AM

I too have the smittys on the rear, looking at them for the front eventually. I also got the smitty sliders with a step that bolt to the frame as well.... FYI, if you dont have the corner guards you will have to trim about 2" off the end of the sliders to fit with the rear flares.

Pm replied, didn't read that you already have them haha.

I trimmed my stock fenders personally and I love them. Didn't cost anything, gave some room and looks better IMO. Almost like you just have yourself an inch of a lift.
