These look great, but I wouldn't run such giant tires. If you can get away with those with only 3" of lift, 35's should go like a pro with a budget boost or 2.5" spring lift.

Yup, new flares are both taller and longer, and I imagine you do a little trimming on the tub too.



Notice the little turn-down at the back too, so it should fit a SWB as well as the Unlimited.

I'm hooked on these... the only problem is the size of the tire I would need to look "normal" with them if I wanted to combine it with 6" AiRock, and the axle needed to support those tires

There's a set of built 2.5T rockwells with wilwood brakes for sale by me for 2500 bucks...with detroit lockers and all. REady to install. If only I had money for them and the 44" terra tires I'd need to take advantage of them.

I ran 33" BFG MTs on 2" of spring lift and a 1" BL for a while, it didn't rub too bad once I got the bump stops set correctly.

Anyone have pics of that no lift TJ article in Jp? I have the article somewhere at home and couldn't find it on the Jp site.

When I installed the lift before buying tires I decided I wanted to run 33"s... Well there were two ways to do it. A BL or a grinder with a cut off wheel. One would end up costing over $200 after MML and such and one would be about $4 for some cut off wheels.

Now the first option offers no benefit to me right now since I'm not doing a tummy tuck until I get into my real build. All it would do it make my body a little more sway worthy. The second would leave me with a slightly Lower COG and and a Jeep that looks all my own. Oh and it left me with $196, enough for some used meats, mounting, and some brews

I chopped off almost all of the front fender except the very top, that might go soon All I had to do in the back was remove the flares. I might trim some when I get new meats that are fuller on tread. Took an hour or so and transformed the heep.

During thats not me, it's a buddy


Here are the pieces left over, you can see the parts from the side of the fender are over an inch in alot of places. (Who needs hockey pucks?)


Flexing it in a parking lot

Is that a one piece setup for $450? Doesn't seem that bad.

Fiberglass + anything hard = hairy mess.

Other costs have not been factored

AEV fenders $2000
Vanco Hydroboost $800 (given you don't need a new pump)
Meats (37") $1500
HD steering $400
Axles $2500 (and that's a conservative estimate)



Really, AEV comes out with some really neat stuff, but is it really practical or is just for show? All that loot for raised fenders and a new hood could get you armor, recovery gear, lift, lockers, a night at the bar, etc, etc...


It's just not worth it to me.
