I may revisit that color. It is pretty pimp. But, really hard to spray. We will see in a few months.

Here are a few pictures with the stock flare clamped in place.

I am really digging the flare on the bed versus no flare. I am not a fan of the tube flares either. Maybe a flat xenon flare later if I install some Rokmen tube Fenders later done the road.

I have decided on a exterior paint color and a separate color for the cage.

I will share the color after its sprayed and being reassembled in my garage.

Stay tuned.. more work this week.

Flare looks really good!! I like it a lot! Makes the bed look like it rolled off the factory line! Well except the fact the flare was probably a little less faded.

Doesn't that kind of depend on how wide your axle tire combo ends up being to keep things in proportion?

They are going to stick out no matter what. The Rubi flares are a tiny bit wider and the shaped is more defined. They usually are twice as much used also. I have a set off a X model I guess just use what i have.

It wouldn't be very Dumpster Dive-ish of you to not show a little love to some faded out flares similar to what lesser, mere mortal Jeeps run.

Yes.

I meant that you should take that old faded out set of flares and run them...after you've cleaned up and repainted em.

Reduce,reuse,recycle. It is the way of the Dumpster Dive.

Standard flares. Rubi flares are too damn big.
