I am really looking forward to getting my fenders on now that I have finally got them painted.

I am not a big fan of your turn signal alternative....what if anything are you planning.

I presently picked up some JK turn signals to mount in my dash...need to get the backing plates for them...of course they are still in the boxes like most things for my Jeep...need to find the time

Matsonian, thanks for you're continued support. I was wondering this picture below of the red TJ. Is is safe to assume that it is a stock suspension, no BL, & 33" tires? Or are those 35" tires?

I love these fenders, definitely the one I am going with, but how much clearance difference is there in between all of the flare sizings? From no flare to the 6".

Sorry guys for my tardiness, I see there are lots of questions, and I will get to them soon. As for your question Wheat, thank you. There is no difference in clearance. If you look at the first page of this thread, you will see that whether it is 4" or 6", the tire never hits the flare or the tube, so your clearance is the same.

Hi Matsonian. I know you're playin catch up with all the questions asked. But I figured I'd add a suggestion rather then a question this time. Aside from the quesiton I asked above. LOL

Do you remember these? It was something rev111 had when they first intro-ed their front arched fenders. I think this is a cool turn signal. It's really two birds with one stone. Not only can the ppl on the side of your Jeep see you but so can the ppl in front. I think this would be very cool if you all can figure out how to incorporate something like this. Say maybe a very bright amber LED?
Keep it sealed somehow out of the elements so that rust won't start to cancer up the fenders behind the LED. And possibly make some clear ones for those of us that are young at heart, or maybe smoked lense for those that want a stealth look, or plane jane amber housing.
Hope this helps in any way. Also check out overkill engineerings LED's they have built into their tube fenders. I'm not impressed by their fenders, but I am by their LED incorporation. Supposebly they keep out the elements too. If they don't have a patent on it, I say fair game.

LOL! I realized after I posted it how "official" it sounded saying R&D is working on a solution... made it sound like major surgery!

Actually, we have a simple application designed to protect the hood for those who might be rubbing. We will be emailing all our customers and letting them know what the options are if they need it, and yes, that includes you StormTrooper.

Marker Lights....

Thank you all for the great suggestions on the marker lights!

The Bullet that we currently have has been very popular lately, but we realize that it doesn't suit everyone's tastes/desires/preferences.

Therefore, we will be releasing a smaller LED marker light set in the near future designed to be mounted under the fenders rather than above.

As for pictures or details, have patience. As soon as we have them available they will be posted on our website and this Forum.

Thank you again!

CCJ, finally getting around to this one!

These are 33's on stock suspension, no BL. Purely a street cruiser.

Ahhh Ha! I just knew it! Perfect thanks so much for the reply. You da man. I'm pumped about what these marker lights will look like from you guys. Whole lot of us are holdin are breathes here in my state where I trail ride at.

Last question. That red TJ with the 33's no lift no BL. Are those just the tube fenders? Or are they tube fenders and also 4" flare option? I can't tell from the angle. And I can see the back looks like the flare option but can't tell in front.
And I can see now how 35's with no lift no BL would clear. Nice example pic matsonian.

It looks like the fronts have flares too. 4" or 6" now Matson will have to chime in on that one....I'm thinking 6"

You are absolutely right... the fronts and rears are 6".

Hey is there anyone that has a direct head on shot of a Jeep with these fenders without the flare extensions and a 12.50" tire, 33 or 35 doesn't matter, and ~4" of backspacing?
