Speed has never killed anyone - suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you!

Where did you get your tinted signal lenses? I have been looking for them and have not had any luck? Back on topic, have you had any problems with the cops hassling you for not having fenders? Or do you not normally run them like that? And what corner guards are you running? That is something else I have been looking for and havent found any good ones for the 2drs with flush mount tail lights.

Go to LiftLaws.com - Suspension Lift Laws By State (Updated 5/3/10) for most relevant vehicle laws. They show Maryland as only requiring fenders on commercial vehicles.

Georgia shows the same thing, you won't need fenders there either. I painted mine this past weekend and I really like the way it looks with the inside painted as well

I like the idea of no fenders or very small fenders... the write up on jkowners.com on trimming the stock fenders down to almost nothing, is a great write up. When I get my JK, thats what im doing. because of the way the fenders mounting area is recessed into the tub, it makes it hard to just go fenderless... it would be cool if they made a "cap" that snapped in place of the fender, but would make the area flush with the tub.

It looks great, so far so good. It would be nice to be able to stuff those tires & not get any rubbing on the fenders.

One foot in the grave & one foot on the gas pedal!!

Yep, and I just ordered the Rancho Rear bumper and tire carrier. That bumper just doesnt look good with the fenders off and Im tired of having to take my rear seat out just carry my spare.

the bumper is what has stopped me from going fenderless. I have the Rugged Ridge rear bumper, which is full length. I considered removing my fenders, and then realized it would look stupid having that bumper sticking out there and no fenders. I'll probably go with tube fenders eventually.

Yeah, I eventually want the poison spyder fenders but right now I dont have the coin to get front and rear fenders so I thought removing my fenders and going with that rear bumper would be the best combo and it will push me to save for those poison spyder fenders too. Then I will be going with rockers and cutting my front bumper and then eventually getting a front bumper.
