So an update to my Jeep, tonight I am getting into my buddy's garage and taking off the rear flares, and probably the front flares off of the cloaks for a little while. I am constantly rubbing on my stock rear flares, so I will take them off before I tear them off. I am also going to chop my front bumper so it doesn't look so dumb. Plus it will give me a better approach angle.

Are you planning on making the rear wheel wells bigger and throwing the flare back on? The flares stretch quit a bit.

No, I will either put rear Metalcloaks on, or just put armor on and leave it that way.

Well, I took my flares off of the Metalcloaks....looks like 7 coats of paint weren't enough for the Michigan winters....

Looks like I need to find a better paint...
