I think they were pricey, I'm not gonna lie -- but they were easy to install and definitely make a visual impact.

You're anti-fasciaist but seriously, your Jeep is fantastic.

Youre right...I am anti fasciaist...in both meanings!

Thanks, too.

Not a fan, I never liked the fake bolts. What matters is you like it.

Truthfully, I didn't. There just wasn't an Extend-a-Fender option for the WK2 and I was happy to take what I could get. Now that they're on, the rivets actually mimic the brushed steel on my wheels, so it looks like I planned it. It's okay

$492 is just too much, but they look good with big tires.

They look great. I'm not a huge fan of the wheel design, or hash stripes, but it all looks OK together. Leave your winglets on. You'll lose .05 MPG if you remove them.

I definitely can't afford to lose any more MPG. Thanks for the (kind of, almost, maybe?) compliment.

...the fascia winglets do not make a difference in fuel economy. I took mine off and didn't drop any MPGs. I know other owners that took theirs off with the same result. You added larger wheels and tires thus you cannot be that worried about gas mileage. Then again if you aren't going to take yours offroad I guess leave them on since they won't get in the way.

It's seen more than pavement, though I can't trust it as much as I did the Rubicon I traded in on it. I don't do any hardcore, get-winched-out mud bogs or rock crawls. Everything else is fair game, relatively competent in 4WL and first gear, and I've never noticed anything getting in the way. The MPG was bad before I went big, it's a Hemi. That **** doesn't economize. But honestly, no one has ever suggested fascia winglet removal before. I'll keep it in mind -- if I see a need, I'll do it.
