Bushwacker 6" pocket flares

Will this work with 33"x12.5"x15" duratracs on TKO mb's? With no rub?

Not looking to lift the truck as I am going to be using it for work and need clients to enter and exit without too much trouble. Also will be looking at rock sliders that are going to be used for a step and function as protection when off road.

I have a lead on the pocket flares and want to bite today. I just want to make sure this is the right thing for me. Any help would be appreciated.....

I am still stock wheels and tires as well as suspension. Much appreciate the quick response.

Best,
Bill

from what I have read before the setup you list above should be fine on road however ymmv with 33"s and no lift even with the new flares off road...

Largest tire on stock JK? Here's your answer!

Thank you!

Why would I go with 17" or bigger wheels besides aesthetic purposes? If I am blacking this thing out I dig the TKO MB's and can save some serious cash going 15" wheels.

Would a terra flex leveling kit fix the issue, you mentioned above?

Thanks for the link. So now my question changes a bit. If I were to go with a 285x75x16 setup and TeraFlex leveling kit, would I get rub when off road? Using the Bushwacker pocket fenders??

Photo and info courtesy of 4Fit. I hope it is ok to use other members photos. Please advise if this is frowned upon. To make this easiest, would the pocket fenders work on this wheel/tire combination?


"Here is my 16x8.5 and 285/75 setup, which specs out the same as a 17" setup with 285/70. TF leveling kit is also installed. "

6" bushwacker pocket flares, in immaculate condition. Have to drive 240 miles to pick them up.

What is a good price?
Will they work with the above mentioned tire/wheels/leveling kit combo?

Thanks again for all the help.

Saw a set of these on a wrangler tonight. Talked to the guy and he said they were a pain to install. I am wondering if they are any more durable than the factory fenders?

What's kept me from pulling the trigger, is that they do not sell them as individuals for replacements. If you screw one up on a trail, you are stuck buying a whole new set.

Awesome advice. Thank you so much. That definitely adds weight to the reason to not get them.

THANKS!

You'll be fine with 33's and stock flares, if you want some room, look at the leveling kit or add spacers. The leveling kit gives a better ride though.
