@rdnk90... Hey, looks like you're local, here in Utah. If you ever want to talk ZJ mods, give us a call or stop on by. We're working on a shop ZJ right now, ourselves. And of course we'd be happy to show you our Z-Max Flares in person. You might even get a glimpse of our bumpers, being released very soon, too.

Here are a couple pics of our Z-Max Flares, sent in by some customers.

why?
because his front tire and rear tire were flexed right into the fender, which were stopping his tires from spinning. so the other tires just spun. result. stuck; (yes sway bar connected)

stock jeeps drove up it in 2wd.

so maybe my definition of 'fit' is different than some.

Oh I completely agree, if I didn't I wouldn't be at 5" and 33s.....although I only like to see about 4" of up travel and 8" down....but articulation isn't a must....just watch some h1 videos...bump stops are a must if your slamming big tires under a zj

Ill have to take a pic of my wife's Jeep. It has upcountry package and 31s( they are taller than my 265/70 side by side). No bumper covers but so far only rubs on mud flaps. Haven't had a chance to flex to the max yet tho.

Here are the pics I said I would post. Sorry it took so long. This is a stock UC package with 31/10.5. It has exploder rims and 1.25 wheel spacers on it (I think this equals 3.0 BS)
