rubi flares are 2.5" wide whereas the sport or x flares are 2.25" wide, the 2.25" is perfect, tires stick out a bit but the trimmed look really compliment it. He doesnt mud so i don't see it being a big deal no offense i hate mud myself. my 2 cents get sport flares and trim them and the mt/rs will seem bigger lol

These are the correct measurements. I have seen some mud, and I know the ORV parks close enough to wheel at have mud, but I guess I would just get over it. If I have to clean underneath, the rest isn't so bad. It takes me about 4 hours for a full proper cleaning. Hey... I might just do that when I wake up today, if it is nice.

Well, I was talking to Issac (LongJeep04) about the trade last night (thanks to Zach's build thread). He is local enough to not have to ship. I am still not sure what I want to do though.

Damn... why does everyone want Rubi flares so bad? Is it just because they are like 1/4 the price of new flares?

Any issues yet, or are you waiting on new flares before switching form 11.5 to 12.5?

I forgot to mention my tiny mod I did today. I set the fogs so that I could use them with the highbeams. It was as simple as pulling the relay and bending pin 1 180 degrees. Took longer to pull the fuse out than it did to bend the pin.

LOL, everyone says that about the rear wheel. I need to find a replacement I guess. Thanks for the compliment, and welcome to the site.
