Looking for new ideas for the yj

Trying to figure out wether or not to go with the flat fender flares for the yj or another style

Any ideas also I use the yj as an emergency vehicle also so I don't want to make it look to aggressive

You can trim the original flares to make them flat

like said above, the look is up to you,,,,myself i love flat fenders but i may be a bit biased because of my old 48 willy cj2a....

the tube fenders are very tough and durable.., that more than likely what i will do with mine both front and rear...

I went with tubes and can't see going back. That's really the meanest looking (and best clearance) option I've done for my YJ.

Another vote for the tube fenders here. I love the looks of mine, and they give more clearance. Super durable too.

the bushwacker flat fender flares will give you legal tire coverage and still have the flat fender look,plus they make your rig look like it has more lift than it actually does. I have installed 3 sets (wifes lj,sons tj, and my yj)and I get tons of compliments on them.

Well after consideration I went with the bush wacker flat fender. They were wider then the tube fenders. Love the look

Cool! Pics?

I built my own tube fenders. They are a bit different. Mine are not fender law legal though. lol But since i don't have fender laws here it's a must.
