Can't decide which way to go with the rear from here. It rubs bad when the rear axle flexes.

Current. The rear tire sticks out ~8".

And a lot of trimming.
Jeeps looking good. I would trim the opening and the ends of the bumper, but not put the flares back on.

Typical jf. I give you three options and someone picks a fourth.

I really like it how it is now, but our state law states that only 1" is allowed showing on a tire.... Been going around with 8" showing for 2-3 months now, no pull overs or tickets yet. Might just keep it this away and deal with it if I ever get a warning.

Me too. Plus When I finally upgrade my front fenders to some type of highlines, I will be able get a bolt on style fender for the rear too.

Not that I am making the purchase anything soon...

Front Fenders choices in order of cool/functional/what I want factor:

Sinister Fab - 816 with inner fenders/ can sell factory fenders
http://www.sinisterfabworks.com/shop...aspx?itemid=58

Genright - 850 with inner fenders/ can sell factory fenders
http://www.genright.com/ProductInfo....ductid=TFF2710

Rokmen - 600 with inner fenders/ can sell factory fenders/ welding and finish work
http://www.rokmen.com/armor-protecti...t-w-flare.html

MetalCloak - 800 with inner fenders/can sell factory fenders
http://www.metalcloak.com/Aluminum-O.../2214%20al.htm

Poison Spider - 700 NOT HIGHLINED without inner fenders
http://shop.poisonspyder.com/TJ-LJ-D...2-070-alum.htm

With all the above said and done.... None of these really appeal to me while hitting all the major points, aka really like the look of the rokmen's, but they are made of steel and I am sure they are heavier than stock and the price tag. I have never really saw an aftermarket fender that just jumped out and said something to me. I just do not want to commit (buy) anything for the jeep, especially if it is over 500, if I do not really really love the product.

Might just have to bite the bullet, buy a welder and strait tube (have access to a bender). There are a few designs that I have seen locally and on line that are pretty cool, but once again they will be steel and heavy.... but one off. Maybe something that could tie into a grill hoop and span to the firewall or slider? just some thoughts.



O, and I think I might have a ball joint problem soon too.



Just saw this morning. Have not looked into it yet...

All those fenders choices are solid. The stock fenders are heavier than you would expect, with no flare fenders the weight difference should be negligible. Main reason I went with overlines was so I didn't have to chop my hood, plain and simple. And for steel $600 shipped wasn't bad.

Not much steel except whats needed...

my rokmen hilines fully assembled way at most 15 pounds more than stock fenders. and these fenders are beyond stout. the only aluminum i believe is worth messing with is 7075, and that it should really only be used for links. yes aluminum is bling, but i am not sold that those aluminum corners gerald is selling are as great as what people are making them out to be.

i vote go rokmen, you will not be disappointed.

Yeah. The Cherokee still works well. He rubbed the passenger side doors and tiny bit of pain off on some ledge latter on the ride too.

Brown Santa brought me something purdy



10lb with accessories. Came in a day early. Finally ready to go back to Sicily Island now because I can confidently air down and back up.

You are going to love it until you go to fill it. Skip the welding place and go to a fire extinguisher shop.The welding places want to exchange the tank, but the fire guys will fill yours...at least that was my experience.

Yeah. That is what it sounds like. I have called three places locally. One want to exchange the tank, one want to inspect the nozzle and keep it overnight but will only charge $4 and one wants to inspect the nozzle and charge $30. We will see.

I don't know if this has already been mentioned, but your MTRs don't look correct. I thought the AT section was supposed to be on the inside. That's how I have always seen it. Yours is reversed. Nice jeep btw. Cool color.
