I gave this option some thought at one point.

I ran without for a few years, hating the mud slinging all the while. But I knew I was adding tubes eventually.

I went with smittybilt. I did my research and found (for the price) that they are built well. Not the biggest fan of smittybilt's texture but it gives it a different look.

So smitty front tubes(w/3" flare), smitty sliders and what's going on the rear? Looks like you have some corner guards not full side armor, are those smitty?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm looking at some front tubes and smittys are one of the considerations, but wouldnt mind seeing one with the sliders on it too.

(i currently have smitty rear flares with no corner guards or armor and the same smitty sliders)

So I got everything I'm this pic. Smittybilt's front tubes with 3" flares, smittybilt's sliders with tube step, smitty corner guards (go from the tailgate to the doors), and the 3" rear flares. I have warrior products rear corner on right now that will be coming off.

I will post when I can. I'm hoping I can get the front fenders on tomorrow morning when I get off in the morning.

That's an understatement. I just learned that today. I gave up trying to remove the screws and instead split each of the plastic nut things with my cutting wheel and peeled them off.

I did the same! After I had ripped the actual flare off of around the screws.
Needless to say, good thing YJ flares aren't too popular because they would have a resale value of -$12 after I finished pulling them off. Yes, I would have had to pay someone to take them. So I just found a dumpster

In Oregon no protuberance is allowed, however most rural locations rarely enforce. Around here it's never enforced unless you really piss someone off.
