Pics of what sort of configuration. Lots of pics I can refer to you, but what is your tire size and desired flare size?

i have 35" tires the tires now stick 3" roughly past the stock fenders. i was going to order the rough country 7" fender flares and they would cover the tire perfectly. but i would LOVE to have a set of metal cloaks.

How wide are your tires? And what is your backspacing?

For comparison purposes, our 6" flares measure about 8" from the hood at the widest point.

You can see here in this diagram from our website where the widest point of the flares are.

my tires are 12.5 wide and my rim backspacing is just a tad more than stock. I dont know the exact backspacing off the top of my head. but like i said the tires stick out 3" past the stock fender flares now, question is how much more tire coverage will I get with your flares over stock?

It is going to be hard for anyone to answer your questions without knowing what backspacing you are running. If you look at the diagram that Matson posted you can see that the outer measurement from wheel to wheel is 70 3/8". Chances are those tires are probably 12.5" wide. So go grab you two straight edges and a tape measure and she what you have. If you come to 70 3/8" or less you should be good.
