Lets See Some Fender Flares!

Trying to decide on some new fender flares. Suggestions or photos that you have on your rig?

When you have a choice, buy American made.

Bushwhacker "Pocket style" flares on '04. I am not really a fan of these due to the potential for trail damage, but out here in the Sandwich Isles you must cover your tread to be road legal. Don't know why my photo loaded sideways, it's not like that in my photo album.

Indeed.

I believe some D###head was sending me a message because they seemed to be of the opinion I should not park my Jeep by the curb in front of my house. No matter where you live, there are DH-es: not a house in the neighborhood is under 1.2M Nobody else on the street had rocks on their vehicles that morning, I checked every one.

Yes, that day I parked 5 on both sides of the street for several days as I was starting a big welding/steel fabrication project flat-bedding my 86 Toyota 4X.

I'm no longer running fender flares, they don't survive long around rocks. Aluminum fenders up front and nothing on the rear which certainly wouldn't be doable for everyone. I get away with nothing in the rear, I believe, due to removable mud flaps I added for when I'm on the street.

When you have a choice, buy American made.

California's less strict on those things though we occasionally get pulled over for lack of coverage... I just haven't yet.

Virginia where you live is a lot stricter than California, doesn't VA also require you to wear a duster with goggles and hat as well as requiring full coverage for your tires?

I think this pic came from the last VA offroad Jeep event if I'm not mistaken.



Virginia girley-man Jeep.



California manly-man Jeep.



Just kidding of course Boogieman. I don't want any nightmares with you in them.
