I really like those Xenon flat fenders, but I've always had a soft spot for the Bushwacker Pocket style fender flares. I know most people on JF don't like (hate) them, but I just like the aggressive look of them. I would go with that TAG brand that can be found on eBay for half the price, and most say twice the quality.

Personally, what ever fenders you get, I think you should paint match them to keep that Sahara look. I love the white on white your Jeep has.

I would definitely do that; I'd be a fool to ruin the trim package. I think the Xenon come in white too. I've actually never been a huge fan of the pocket fenders, seems like a nightmare to keep clean. BUT..... if ya get some throw some photos up

I can vouch for Bushwacker flares as they do their job. I did have one crack about 2 years after buying them. But 1 call to Bushwacker took care on it. They sent me a whole set of the newer textured set.

I wouldn't say they aren't good; though the general consensus seems to to be a little disapproving, but maybe thats just the jf community. I think I need some more work before I need to worry about fenders though. I'm thinking the new 37's will grenade half of my Jeep if I do more than drive slowly down main

why not.. but I am thinking I need to swap out about half my Jeep first. I've been looking at ways of beefing up the d30; but it seems like that axle isn't worth putting money into. But if i throw a d44 under there I lose my lockers... you can't salvage the lockers from a d30 to a d44 can you?

Nope, different carries. You need to find someone willing to pay you for your d30 and swap in a new axle. Best business i have found locally is DarkHorse Customs Scott is the owner and he is a awesome guy to talk to. If i have any questions i stop by, his shop is out in four corners and i guarantee he will lay out your options for you. Wither you want to do the work yourself or have him do it. He has a sick YJ on 40's with a LS1 in it so i trust him

But on a side note, why not just add a Body Lift and run 35's for a while? I think may even stick to 33's for another set of tires before i go bigger...

I just found some military surplus tires cheap and I figured it would be fun. it probably isn't going to happen for a while tough... I'd need new lockers for a d44, and i know i need to beef up the steering; than regear. it's probably a few years off yet. and more than a couple $$'s

This winter has blown for me. A few days of good snow, then melt offs, ice, and cold. It snowed like crazy last week, now it's all mush. I was really hoping for a kick *** winter full of snow.

I love the snow too. The streets around Billings are icy ruts. As bad as I have ever seen them. Hopefully we will get a warm up and get them melted.

Big Sky 4 Wheelers Snow Bash

We missed you! About 22-25 rigs. Trail was decent. The ones that went to the top of Blacktail said the snow was waist deep and not broken in. Lots of winching. Steve actually has video (I bear witness ) of his Suzuki pulling two jeeps out at once DOH! Glad it was yesterday - last night during dinner the wind started blowing and it's cold out there today! I'll post pics as soon as I have them.
