I saw some trimmed flare on a youtube channel ProjectJK. The whit Jk on 40's has trimmed fenders and looks pretty good.

Nooooooooo no no no no. Those are fugly as ****.

As of now, before I change my mind again - walker Evans beadlocks. The goal this time around is to overbuild for reliability. It just so happens that the walkers are the physically strongest wheel on the market. The 17x8.5s have a load capacity of 3950lbs. That's 1950lbs more than the hutchinsons, and 950lbs more than the spyderlocks.

Yeah, I'm familiar with them. I like their "stubby" flares, but at this point all I want is just a good looking aluminum front flat fender.

All the other stuff I want is going to be from savvy and UCF

If I could hardcore fabricate aluminum I would, but my welder is set up for steel and I'd rather not MIG aluminum. Further, I don't have the full on shop tools to do so either, unfortunately.

It's just the flat black hood center. Looks awesome and also cuts down on glare

Will, the Trailready HD17's are marked with a load range of 3200, but went to 5500lbs before failure. Larry just decided to stamp them to be close to the others and so some jackwagon didn't put them on a fifthwheel or something. That's per Larry at Trailready. Obviously you would never come close to 5500lbs per corner, but whatever. I saw that was a determining factor for you on wheels for some reason, so now you know.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I was aware they were under rated (as are the walkers) but I was unaware of the specific numbers. Thanks - but I don't really care for anything that race line puts out purely in an aesthetics level
