The original trimmed fenders looked wicked. Sucks about your laws. So glad I ain't got to put up with that around here.

I know man, super bummed about it.. I spent a lot of time on those too..

I bought some 3/4" led side markers lights but in red and I'm going to put them in the rears. This it will look sick.

Sucks you did all that work on the stock fenders only to have to cops catch you. They looked freakin' awesome too. The Bushwackers look good too, though. I noticed in the pic the rear fender-well looked black, did you bedline it or get a liner for it? I know Rugged Ridge makes one for their flares and it looks pretty good.

Someday 37s, but for now it will remain. I'll get a photo shoot here when the weather clears up, which could be a while

Oh really? I feel like everyone will be a JK person at some point, only took a few years to get the price down lol

Took some better pictures, BTW I love these flares. The lights are so nice, and I adding the rear some 3/4" LED's here soon. Anyone have an idea what wire is for the rear tail light running lights? Im going to tag them into them.

Thanks man it'smore like a jjeep you mean?

I'm going to be honest, the flares I didn't care much for but when I got them on my opinions changed. Probably my favorite mod so far

Put an LED side marker in the rear flares today, just hooked up the wiring to a ground and the hitch running lights. Looks slick and matches the front stock markers of the bushwackers. Took a couple minutes to prepare drilling into the flares haha

That's my goal! Right now I'm thinking about waiting on the aesthetics of the rig and getting drive train done. Looking at getting Xgussets aand inner tubes with diff covers, driveshaft, balljoints, gears and lockers.. Yada yada

I think taking the trim off makes it look was cleaner being that it's a darker color.
