TJ with stock flares minus smaller front flares

Looking to take mine off, but I need to compare whats under mine with yours. Preferrably no sliders, guards, etc

I think he meant it sarcastically, or satirically, not sure which word is the right one in that instance. Either way, he was kidding...i think......

Does anyone know if it is exactly a 1" hole? I was thinking you could get some 1" plastic caps to cover them.

i read the same thing too... something about that's where one of the automated robot arms go while it's either being assembled or painted. then again, maybe we're just not supposed to ask...!
