IMO I would stay with stock instead of the pocket style you really don't gain any clearance. If you're gonna do your fenders then go with flat or tube style, looks much better and you'll gain a lot of clearance for your tires while off roading.

The wider ones were aimed for the states that require tire coverage and you don't like flat fenders. I don't like the look of them because they don't line up with bumpers. The narrower ones line up better but still look cool.

I prefer flat fenders because the are functional - allows for more rubber, plus they look cool in my opinion unless you are wanting a full width bumper. Some people don't like the open look that flat fenders give though.

I for one do not like the look of flat fenders, but I do however love the look of the Bushwacker pocket fenders.

The larger pocket flares are huge IMO and dont look right, a buddy of mine has them.. I prefer the flat ones but the stock size will work fine if you like the look of them with that tire...

Yea that's actually helpful guys.. I was thinking give 11.5 would be too much also

I'm leaning towards standard 9.5 size pocket style.... No real hard core off roading here..

I like most flat fenders but I do love me some pocket Bushwacker flares. Sure they scream 1998 but who cares?

Has anyone installed the 9.5' bushwacker pocket style flares? I'm curious how the install was and if you like them.
Thanks!

I had the extended coverage (11.5) pocket flares and did not like them. I bought the jeep used and it had them but the jeep had everything else I wanted. They are just too wide and don't look right. If you're going with pocket flares, get the 9.5. I changed mine to flats...
