Just as the title says. Looking to look at some in person to make a decision on what I want to buy.

I was set on getting some as well for the removable factor and the higher arch but literally the day i went to buy them i realized they would be no good for a street legal rig. You can kinda see in this picture that the flares neck down at the mounting points so even though you have a 4 inch flare, its really only 4 inches on top and 1ish inches at the mounting point. I looked at a rear shot of a jeep with them on and i knew i would get pulled over, even with mudflaps it would look like almost no tire coverage from the back.

That being said braden drives around with 90% of his tires sticking out so who knows. i didnt want to roll the dice.

Will cloaks even work with your stretch?

Ah. Key info there. Well I'm not a fan of mix matched fenders so I'd do non removeable front and rear. My concern with cloaks was the rear. One more question, will you ever boat side your jeep?

I guess this is off topic though. On topic I don't know of anyone with them.

I have a solution find a state were there is no inspection or emissions testing or tire coverage laws Get a po box there. Register the jeep in that state then get the mail forwarded to Utah.

i may do this to my jeep. i would register it in pa where im originally from. i really have no interest in driving this thing all the way back ever so it wouldnt matter if i got inspection or anything like that. but cops in pc and state police will prob use the fenders as a reason to pull you over to sniff for drugs. around 80 they love grabbing people with ny and cali plates!

Pa has tire coverage laws they are nazi's with. However Texas has no tire coverage laws but the center of it lowbeam must be within 54" of the ground. And their inspection is a joke
