Fender flares

I have a '02 TJ Sport and have been putting off getting new flares for a few years. I have scraped and painted and even tried bed liner spray which made them look good but for not long. I'm now ready for new ones but I can't make my mind up as to get same size (3 1/2- 4") or go with 7". I'm running with 31's. I'm looking at Rugged Ridge brand or possible Crown.
What's your opinion on which size?

Thanks in advance

7" never look good IMO, but it is your Jeep. When I replaced the flares on my 02 I used rubi flares. You don't have to worry with paint fade with the rubi flares and they are a bit wider I believe.

I picked up a set used on Ebay. Keep your eyes open. I got the full set front and rear armor. They were made by T&T customs. Awesome 6" fenders.

There are many options out there when it comes to flares. From pocket style (bushwacker) to flat flares to stock. All have there appeal. Get whichever one looks best to you. The flat flares will give you more clearance if that's important to you. The pocket style flares are cool looking, but they can have clearance issues. Stock flares are ok, but they can fade over time and not always give you the wheel coverage you may need to comply with state laws, if you care.

What size tires and backspacing are you running? If you need something to cover a tire that sticks out a little bit, go with a wider Fender Flare. If you are running stock wheels and tires, go with something narrower. As far as flat versus pocket versus factory style, that is you preference based on what you like.

Let me know if you have any questions or if you'd like a quote on some flares!
