Highlined TJ with 31's at stock height

Hey everyone, I tried searching for this but couldn't find anything with my setup. I have a stock height TJ with 31 MT/R's. I'm looking to keep it as low as possible and make it as flexy as possible. So anyways i'm thinking about highlining the front fenders but I don't want it to look ridiculous. I'm just wondering if anyone has this setup or has had it. If you could post some pics of what it looks like it would be awesome.

Im gonna say 31s with any brand of highline fender will look odd.

Heres my jeep at just under 3" of total lift (1" body, 2" ACOS coil spacer) with 35"s and AEV highline fenders. IMO my 35"s look too small, but tolerable. I can stuff my tires with room to spare.




Most highline fenders are made to run the biggest tire you can with as little lift as possible. Usually aimed for 37"+.

Just for fun... AEV Highline with 31"s, stock height I mean come on - look at the back wheel well! Im sure he was just rocking it this way till he got his new tires mounted up - but this is a good example of what im talking about. Any highline kit without a plastic fender flare for coverage (ie Rokmen, Metal Cloak) will look worse.

Can the stock front flares be used with the aev kit?. I know they advertise "with wider flares". I wouldn't mind the aev kit, but can't stand those wide *** flares

Nope, the angles are all different. The front would be 3" too short and the back probably wouldnt work at all. I wouldnt say they are super wide like some of those aftermarket 7" flares . I think they are 1" wider than Rubicon flares if I remember right.

Im thinking the AEV Highline kit has been phased out by AEV at this point.

It seems most of the tj aev stuff is being phased out. I remember having my yj and thinking, "those tj guys have it made, there's a huge market." now I say the same about the jk guys

Its understandable, when a product isnt selling and the demand drops - thats it. I just think its BS that AEV turns a cold shoulder to customers (myself included) by not offering replacement parts. I hear rumors saying the highline kit has a few years left, and other rumors say its gone... who knows.

Hopefully they sell the rights to the highline kit to knowwhere2jeep, just like they did with Nth products.

Hell I remember seeing the nth degree la kit review when it first came out. Of course that was back when re was the tits. Its a shame seeing these company's that made some good parts were slowly bought out by bigger companies (Transamerica comes to mind. They either slowly died off, or turned into cheap china made parts under the same name(smittybilt comes to mind). Oh well, at least we have companies like savvy, mc, rockmen creating a new line of business

I agree that stock one looks like crap. The wide flairs is a lot of the problem though in my opinion

i no longer own the jeep, but i kept them in the rear because where i wheeled, the county cops were enforcing laws pretty hard. if one was behind me, the tires looked covered. i was pulled over one day about the flares not covering and no front plate at the time. one of my friends had a full width 1 ton cherokee and basically had 10" wide flares he had to run on the road to keep the cops off him he made them detachable for trails of course

Im so glad I live in a free state where the cops actually focus on crime, not BS like tire coverage.

I feel sorry for all you New England Jeepers and the tyranny you have to put up with.
