because it's not a beatuy contest. if there is a cj, tj, or yj wheeling and they hit a fender on something there is considerable damage. if we knock a fender off it costs 20 bucks or so to buy clips to put it back on. or you can forgo the 20 bucks in clips and just remove the fenders, the stupid plastic bumpers, side steps, etc... and gain lots of clearence w/ no worries of damage.
here is my front fender from 2008 snowshoe jeep jamboree


and the rear fender from 2007 snowshoe jeep jamboree

pretty much everything he said. my rig see's a fair bit of trails and the fenders were taking a beating from rocks, trees, rubbage, etc...so i just removed them before they got trashed or caught on something and bent out my fenders. and its not about beauty with me. if it were....i wouldnt be driving it. lol

but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. critisize away brosif! i honestly dont care

After tearing my right front fender off twice I kinda have to agree with the wisdom of taking em off for wheeling. Personally I kinda like the look of the flareless Jeep anyway and its kind of like sticking a thumb in the eyes of those that think a Jeep is something to be kept pristine.

sheet, if it wasnt for that engine. we'd all want JKs!(okay, maybe not ALL...) seriously though.

bumpers, rocker guards a winch and a budget boost.

and you have a vehicle that is so capable its not even fair!

Figured I'd share my JK's fall top configuration: Bikini top, Duster and Wraparound Windjammer


Since I've now recieved about 15 PMs about getting the windjammer to work I thought I'd do a quick mini-write up to save me from typing it repeatedly and so nobody will have to wait on me noticing I've got PMs, etc.

1) This is the wraparound windjammer for the 2dr JK. A search on your favorite Jeeps part site will 4wd.com, Quadratech, etc will lead you right to it.

2) You WILL need soft top door surrounds to run this combo as the windjammer has rails just like the soft top windows that lock into the door surround.

3) No modifications are necessary to get it to work.


4) It will be VERY tight when you first install it. So tight that you might think it will pop out of the door surrounds. I found that it did not pull free from the door surrounds if I didn't lock both seats into place. I raised the seats and allowed them to rest against the windjammer, but did not lock them in place for 3 days, to allow the windjammer to stretch a bit. Notice in the pic, towards the bottom of the windjammer is a crease. There is a matching one on the opposite side. This is a result of the last inch or two of the rail for the windjammer slightly pulling out of the door surround. Mine has not pulled out any further even at highway speeds with the windows down.

5) For best results though (or personal preference) I chose to take an exacto and cut slits in the plastic part of the top of the windjammer (not visible in pics), in the location where the bikini top straps would wrap around the roll bar. Doing this virtually eliminates a small gap that's left if you don't do this. Again, personal preference. Some might not want to cut into their windjammer. The cuts will not have an effect on the structural integrity of the windjammer though.

6) One thing I forgot to mention totally is that the windjammer has flaps that on the 2door I believe get tied down to the bottom of the rear seats. I chose not to cut these out, but instead I took them and under the duster, ran them to the roll bars in the tub and strapped them to those, pulling them taught. Again, this isn't really necessary, but when I first installed it, I was worried that the windjammer would pull free from the door surrounds on the highway and I wanted as much protection against it flying away or flapping around and beating the heck out of the sides of the JK. Now, even if they did pop off, the thing wouldn't really be able to go anywhere.

So, there you have it, a complete description of how to get the wraparound windjammer onto an Unlimited. If you're currently experiencing sub 70 degree weather, good luck getting the fabric to stretch enough to get this to work properly. Oh and as a tip with any bestop product I pop them in the dryer prior to installing. It really softens up the fabric and makes it much easier to get anything on the first time during the season. The dryer did not damage the window of the duster by the way, but I'm sure all that tumbling probably left surface scratches. I didn't notice any though. Oh and visibility out the rear window will be greatly reduced as the window area on this duster is pretty small.

Why bestop hasn't designed one for the 4door is beyond me, as it would be incredibly simple using this one as a template. 1" extra fabric on each side to allow for easy install into the door surrounds and doubling the size of the window would be a big help as well. So Bestop if you're reading this, you're missing out by not making it happen!
