Heck yeah! I know what I am buying now! I have a stock rig, and have been on the fence for a while for a BB. I would prefer to actually use your Fenders as a starting point for my rig. Fenders, Tires, gears, THEN a small, flexy, effective lift. I will just have to figure out which one though. Is there a small lift that you guys have been using with your fenders that you have been happy with?

Geezuz, those are some sweet flares. You got me reconsidering lifting my JK at all or just going with the flares, 35's, and a new set of gears. I was gonna do all the above anyways, now I just dont need a lift. I love it

You will have to trim pinch seams and shorten the stock rock rails( on a Rubi), I am assuming?

heya metalcloak...

been considering a river raider snorkel install, then saw your new fenders. but looking at the snorkel install instructions:



the river raider kit might be pushing too close into the same area where your fenders need to install mounting points?

thoughts?

I am pretty confident that you will be fine...the location follows the backside flat of our fender. At the point of the snorkel thru hole our fenders barely exceed the formed stock line.

In addition, if it does not work perfectly for you, you can return them for a full refund.

What you got a Mall Crawler? The extreme clearance and definite strength don't work for you, but hey drop the M.
