That must be a photochop. As a long time reader of this forum I've been told countless times that you can NOT go offroad with big shiney wheels.

Love the fenders....I am planing on making this a future mod..Wanted to know some info..I am currently running 33 tires with a 3" BDS lift with 1" bb...Would I be able to put 35" tires with only running the front fenders...I guess I am looking to find a bit more room for articulation..I curently try not to disconect sway bars for fear of ripping my front fenders off when the wheels flex too much..Has happened once before...



Any help with this would be great..Was planing on going TNT but I may have changed my mind with this post..Thanks again....

Is there any chance of making these fenders in aluminum?

Glad you like them! With your current lift, you could run up to 37s. You would have to mod the rear like we did on our TJ - you can use our cut-out version of the rear fender and base plate, which removes about an 1.5 from the back side, but that is only for the 37s -- 35s will fit fine with the stock opening and will have PLENTY of room on the front.

Funny you should ask, as we were just looking into it. We can definitely do it, but it depends on market demand.

what i am thinking is a motor mount and body lift for a tummy tuck with these fenders and 33s
would this work or would a suspension lift be necessary?

They look cool. I can't see myself spending money on them since I wouldn't gain any clearance.

On a cursory glance at your rig, I still think you would gain clearance. If you profile is current you have a 2" lift on 35s... and even though your fender is modified (looks sweet) you still gain at both the top of the tire and the back against the tub.

You can see in this side diagram (looking down axle) vs. a typical tube fender the clearance we gain both at the top and back.

Good diagram. Have any comparing the inner fender and not just the flare itself?
