I think they look goofy on JK's. They look great on TJ's, but something is just off about the way they look on a JK.

I kinda agree. I also think the BIG pocket on these would eat the tire whole! The is other fenders on the market that is cheap and I think look better on the JK BUT, in the end it is your JK and if you like it, that is all that should matter!

YUP, it's my jeep, it's "YELLOW" and I like the "Pocket" flares, but

It would look ridiculous with stock tires/wheels, you need to fill the "GAP" and make sure the tires edge is "SAT" with the fender- !





Also notta good idea if you do a lotta mud and heavy brush, they're very strong, but can be ripped off-

Yeah, Jimbo's look great but if I recall his wheels have something like 4.5" of backspacing and then he's also got a set of SpiderTrax and then his got a wide almost 34" tire. So he's running like 3" of backspacing with a fat tire.

The stock wheels have somewhere around 6.25" of backspacing and 10" tires. It'd look like the Jeep had wings.

Yep, I think Jimbox has the second nicest Jk on here..

No back spacers, but I agree you need bigger tires to fill the gap.

yeah i figured i'd need the 1.5" spacers, just playin around with some options, i think the flares look good as long as the tires are big enough and it comes out to almost even with the flare itself
