The longarms help a lot. "MR.J" has the same setup, except he trimmed everything. I did the articulation ramp and stuffed them. Slow and.steady did fine, but Im not running bump stops right now. And real world driving, I think they could hold up to it but will take a beating.

So at 4" and 33's does this require a front fog delete and a relocation of the w/w reservoir?

33's will stuff way up into your fender on a 4'' lift and trimming the fenders will not change the location of those two items. if you are going to run the front disconnected, those 33's will almost def rip them out. esp the fogs

How about connected? would the fogs be ok then? I can see that maybe its better to remove the front bumper when 4x4ing disconnected. One might wonder that you could remove front bumper, disconnect sways and take off the flares offroad, so you dont wreck em as well

The constant removing of the flares may strip out the holes.

I'm going to try that back to black stuff. If that doesn't work, I guess I'll have to paint it.

I bought it, don't waste your money. Mine would last about a week and then it would fade out. Look into the acetone flaxseed oil solution that a lot of people have tried. It seems like they are happy with the results.

First off I wanna thank Kolak for a great deal on the flares.

I got mine in yesterday. I hope to get them on next week. I'll see how much modification is needed to install them on a jeep that has been heavily cut. I'm cut all the way to the door in the rear and have no flat area on the front fenders above the tires. I may even have to trim a little off the lip of the flares in the front. I can get really close to the fenders now. Drop a coil and I just barely touch.
(3" lift on 285/75r16's)
I'm in no way afraid of cutting to get what I want though.
