i would love to but i have a set of corbeau a4 racing seat with the jeep mounts but i do not like the fact that i cant move the seat forward and back...it only reclines and slide back and forth...probably going to sell them

I'd ask that you elaborate on what you mean by fake flat fenders. If you mean the ones that bold onto the factory inner, there's really no difference other than strength.

Despite that, they're still significantly more rigid than the factor sheet metal fenders as they bolt to the firewall and to the grill just like full replacements do. Clearance gains over full replacements are virtually non existent, though there are exceptions. ie. Genright, BTF, Overkill or Metalcloak (which garner the largest clearance gains of all replacement fenders, am running the arched fenders on my TJ).

Bottom line, if you're gonna go the traditional flat fender route and you have a steady hand with a sawzall, there's really no reason not to go with the ones that bolt to the factory inner. It's much more economical in the end and garners basically the exact same results.

Metalcloak Arch fenders on my rig for reference.



And I totally know what you mean about those seats. They're stuck in that reclined back position, which I personally hate. I feel a lot more comfortable sitting with my back at a 90 degree angle, vertical.

Am leaning more towards something like this due to the benefit of being able to actual recline the damn thing.

i wish i could do that but being a college student and not having a job it not looking so good for me....but i love the metalcloaks...but for now the bushwacker will have to do because i think i have enough clerance already cuz the flares will add 2.75 to the 5.5 inch i already have...and is it legal because i thought your fenders had to cover or extend over the wheel in virginia....

If I can make a recommendation, remove the shock boots unless you want salt/grime building up on the shaft and rusting it through. Shocks self clean, and boots tend to do more harm then good. No idea why manufacturers still include them with their shocks
