So why don't any YJ/TJ flat fenders look like this (excluding cloaks)


Since I got a new welder, I'm flirting with the idea of making some flatties, but I honestly don't like the look of a totally flat fender. Is there a reason I'm not thinking of that nobody makes them with the tapered "turn down" in the front by the grill? I keep staring at the front fenders on my YJ and don't know why you couldn't do that? It would look so much better IMO and really wouldn't mess up clearance at all.

Thoughts /f12, thoughts please.

Cheers

Yesterday I changed my interior from tan to black and today I replaced all my guage bulbs to white LED's, wired my relay/fuse board in and did white led strips for interior lighting...

Im not big on those flatties either. Don't see a great reason for them to all be like that either, short of stretched front.
Google image search came up with nothing but cloaks and flatties. I'd rather just chop my stocks like that guy from costa rica on here a few hundred pages back :P
I say you get on the prototypes!

HOLY STRETCHABLE U BOLTS

Repaired the jeep today, after my loose driver side u bolts and sheared center pin allowed the axle to slide forward 8". : And the leaf pack was all which way.

All my u bolts are new last year after I did u bolt flips on both axles, during a frame swap. I luckily had a set of ubolts on the shelf, and picked up some grade 8 internal hex cap screws for center pins. I've read that most pins are poor grade steel... I was also able to reuse the leaf pack , No obvious issues after inspection...

Because I have shims up front for better caster angle, the heads where too short to be effective center pins (same w commercially bought pins), so I extended them w some grade 8 hex heads... and made a few spares..

I also went around and checked all the other U bolts, Passenger side I had tacked welded the nuts in place but was able to break the weld and suck up another 1/8 to 3/16 inch, and both rears where not even close to torque specs... ARGH.

I had re-torqued all the U bolts after my rebuild last year about 30 days, but guess it didn't get enough road time to really stretch / settle.

Lesson learned!

No it is not adjustable on 91and above if I am not mistaken. I do know without a doubt our 95's are not adjustable.

1995 YJ. 2 inch BDS Spring lift. 1 inch shackle lift. 1.25 inch JKS Body Lift 33x12.5x15's. Engo 10,000 pound winch.

All I can say is make two sets and send me one. I like the idea of not totally flat flat fenders.

I been thinking exactly that, the way I cut my stock fenders. Don't think it would be a hard transition.

I don't know why the pics are so small. It must be a JF thing.
