Alright, what do y'all think. With end caps or stubby? or the middle caps that MC has, don't have a shopped picture of those.

Stubby

43" caps

I think the stubby version compliments the fenders quite well.

Either stubby or the mid caps, but I like the stubby better, just flows with the fenders better.

That's kinda what I was thinking, I bought this bumper before I even knew about these fenders so that wasn't planned very well.

Happens, that bumper looks good with stock fenders, just bulky looking with those tubes. Either way good looking rig!

Thanks man, can't wait to get everything installed over Christmas break. Then next couple things to order after all of that is done will probably be the stubby caps, Novak, UCF UA, and a GTS. Wish we had some of the same wheeling like pictures in your thread.

Stubby, no question. With tube fenders, especially with negative flares like yours, anything wider looks dumb.

Now just lose the shackles until you're on the trail.

IMO, mid caps look the best.

My Jeep probably isn't the best representation of them, though.

I hate to say it, but I agree with ****head. No shackles till the trail. It looks good the way it is. After the SYE it will drive great. I should be able to help you get to that point if you need me to, just let me know when.

Maybe I'll just toss em in my tailgate, but I'm keeping the back ones on! I don't honestly know why I have 4 shackles.

My plan is to be get home in the AM of Dec. 22 and work on the Jeep/my dads car for the week that I am home. Heading back probably the night of the 28th. I know that is the week of Christmas so I don't expect you to come over (or me to come over and use heated garage)

Side note: Hit 149k miles today.

I don't mind helping you. I have a impact and air ratchet. I also have the lock ring plyers needed to do the SYE.
