Fender flares

Currently have the bushwhacker fender flares and have a case of I wanna buy some new stuff. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations on a set that isn't too difficult to install. I am liking the thinner fenders I see nowadays and may go that direction. Any pics would be helpful as well.

Should have been more specific. I have the fatties and want ones that don't stick out too far from the body of the jeep. Kinda 4 wheeler looking and I like it

The Rugged Ridge hurricane flares have gotten my attention. Have not made up my mind yet though.

I believe they were $685 iirc. Install wasn't bad at all. Needed a 2nd hand (or leg rather) to press down slightly on the ends of the rears to line up the last one or two bolt holes perfectly but other than that it was very easy.

Pretty sure no other steel fenders are this cheap. The rest are $1000-$2000. Some will say that steel fenders can cause body damage if you hit them on a tree or a big rock whereas plastic fenders will break off. To that I say pick a better line or pay more attention...lol.

Very nice! Anyone know what the rear is when it has no fender. Thinking maybe a set of fronts with none on the rear. I like the look. And what is the purpose haha

You want something there to to cover up the holes imo. Even if it was just a flat piece even with the body.
