HMmmm. I am not impressed with the look of the flared and the stock fascia.

I really dont like the look of them with the stock bumper at all. Maybe they need to add a piece to the front bumper cover like they did in the rear that way it would flow together better.

Hi Tim, we’re hoping to have these ready for warehouse’s to order by the end of the week
Guess that didn't happen.

I'd love to see molded plastic high clearance bumpers make their way into the marketplace, they're available in AU already for many vehicles.. but coming across the lake costs a fair amount & there aren't any for our cars yet.

Still want to see what they come up with for a stock front bumper. The rear looks good, but not everyone has an aftermarket front bumper, or want an aftermarket front bumper.

Are there any production plans to create a WJ fender flare that blends well with the stock front bumper? It looks like the lines on these are only “attractive” if the owner has an aftermarket front bumber. Maybe a third piece for the front to attach to the bumper?

Currently there are not, but that doesn’t mean it’s out of the question. I’ll forward your input to the designer. Thanks!

Thanks. That just means a longer wait for a solution. But it should be worth it.

I can live with the way the front flares fit the front bumper, but most likely would try and pull the edge of the bumper out a bit to blend in better.

Alternately, if they were to offer an additional piece seperately later on down the road I'd be all for it.

Yeah. I was thinking of just putting a steel rod in there to push the corner of the bumper out to fit flush with the flares. But we will see what they come up with.

If they really wanna make money, they will come up with a flare to match the stock front bumper. Guarantee that would increase their revenue

I was thinking something along the lines of thicker Kydex. Maybe cut and rivet/bolt together a couple sheets for a little more strength and give the edge a little bit of a curve to help shape the bumper cover.

This idea came from a buddy who builds ford ranger pre runners. They do this to bulge out the bedsides, without having to buy new ones. Figured it doesnt have to go out very far so it might work.
