What you could do with the mce's is make a removable flare for it with some kind of removable attachments so that you could be legal on street but take them off when off-road

Naw i dont think it would because you would be bolting it onto plastic, which would cause droop etc

Right but if you use plastic, like garden edging, then it would still be light weight. Cheap and it would be up to you to make them look clean. Use plastic rivets to keep them on

MCE's are awesome !

Unless you live in a small town or a state with very strict vehicle laws you really shouldn't have to worry about it.

Agreed...I think they are one of the best fenders for the money.

So does that mean 35's are coming soon ?

I like the looks of those nemesis rear fenders.

If he moves to 37s, I'm probably going to take those 35s off his hands. But I need a better rear axle and 4.88s to actually run them

True. But seeing as you have a DD, id just run 35s until you break something back there. If it isnt broken, dont fix it. I seriously believe that if you dont bounce axle and are easy on the peddle, youll be fine with 35s for awhile. As far as the regearing goes, id simply change back to the 32s when you have a travel and keep the 35s on for around town to b lookin awesome.
