I think they look O.K. Myself if I was in your position since you already have the flatties I would just add a flare to them but make them blend in nice on the front. I'm not a big fan of the ones that start the flare a couple inches back from the corner of the fender. Then I would make a set of metal flares for the back.Thats the direction I was going to go at one time except custom build the rear flares and keep them rounded like the CJ wheel opening instead of flat on top like the ones you can buy pre made from smittybuilt and such.

Well if I bought them I would get them without the flare, I agree about the flare on most of the tube fenders but I like them without a flare. I just like how the metalcloak fenders are like a high line without having to cut the hood. I don't know it was just an idea, I'll probably keep what I have because I can't justify the 500 bucks they cost just for a little different look.

I like the metalcloaks too but the White rhino fab ones look great on your jeep, If you do decide to get the metalcloaks let me know, I could use another set of white rhino ones for my other jeep

I am going to refer you to this pic in your thread...

In my opinion you have one of the most bad a$$ lookin CJ's on this whole forum. I wouldn't change the look of your jeep much at all if i was you.

So when is the EFI going in?

Don't tell me I will have my entire drive-train swap done by the time you get it in!
