And no bumper makes it look even bigger. But I think it looks good. Buying my set next month. Can't wait for the write up

Holy smokes your Dub looks huge. I'm still undecided. I keep looking at the Hanneman fenders now. But I think when yours is done I will get the flares after all. Are you going to body color them or leave em black?

it does look pretty big and they are going to be black I have thought about body color but im just not the biggest silver fan haha. My last 2 vehicles have been this color.. I didnt pick the color, its just that the condition and price of the vehicle was so good that I couldnt pass up the deal. If I had it my way.. the whole vehicle would be black

Gotcha. I'm glad mine is the color it is, since black compliments it very well. So I may go black as well on the flares since it goes right down to the cladding and follows the body lines.

ya my color goes well with black too! I'm still considering doing monstaliner on the whole jeep... I think I'm going to but it won't be all at once. I kinda want to do the green and black.. or just solid black. what do you think, Chris?

I'm s fan of the green and black. But the green on the jeep would have to be pretty subtle, but everywhere. Does that make sense? All your accents would be green, on a black body.

Switch it and it will be a hundred times better. You have to remember that it is such a loud color that less is more.

But if you did stick with that color scheme it would be super unique. But I think if you reversed it, it would be cool too. Especially if you did all your handles and the mirrors in the green. But either way its unique.

Edit- you could also split the middle with the bright green. Do the top black down to the bottom of the windows, then green to the cladding, then black again.

I'm not usually a big fan of loud colors like that, but that Shiz looks good bro, Id keep it like in the Pic and just go with it

Thanks! I think I am going to do it like the picture but with minor changes


Today I got the holes drilled for the driver side front flare! now that I have done one flare.. the second one is so much easier! Should have both front flares on by tomorrow
