Thank you very much!

Mine are Off Road Evolution "EVO" Armor/Tube Fenders as stated in my above post.... Any tube fender will allow for more clearance so that you can run a larger tire without rubbing on the fenders... I also happen to be running a 6" plus 2" spacer LA lift which gives it considerable more room than tube fenders alone.

It is still possible for me to stuff the 37 into the tube fender though...

IMO you would need at least a 4" to run 37", but even then you are gonna get some rub.. depends on what you are trying to accomplish and the terrain you are mostly in. My goal was to stay as dry as possible on SoFl trails... the flex was just the icing on the cake.

Is it just me, or does the JK grill look funny with flat fenders? I don't know, I think it's just not long enough.

I drive a jk and I own a real flat fender. I don't really see the point of the flat fender on a jk. The stockfenders are practaly flats. They are also break away and bendable and cheaply replaceable. I've ripped off both of my passnger side fenders and both times it didn't cause any metal damage or cost me a bunch of money. I'm not putting you guys down for having replacement fenders just my 2 cents. I am possibly wrong but arn't you setting yourself up for some metal damage? I wish jeep would have come up with the jk fenders earlyer. My yj's would have been a little less beat up looking.
