Finally pics of new fenders.

Not sure which I like better. The new Pocket Fenders make the Jeep "Beefier". Opinions?
BEFORE WITH FLAT FENDERS.....







AFTER......

They both look pretty awesome,
...but if I had to pick, I'd say the pocket flares because they offer more protection, and I don't see them as often around here.

I'd want to keep both though. Change things up every now and then, just 'cause I could.

Pretty sweet rig!

Nice!
It does look good both ways, but I like the flat fenders more.
...But then again, I've always had a thing for Meyers Manx dune buggies too, so that might be part of it.

Although both look good, my pref would be your original flats.

I like both fender styles on your jeep, though leaning more to the flats.

I have to ask, is your whole jeep plasti-dipped? It looks really good!

If the pockets make it look beefier, that means you need bigger tires.

Looks like a Starwood so it'd be Kevlar dipped.

Both versions need "Beefier" tires
Run flats on alternating weeks
Both look good with that set-up

"horrible" seems a bit dramatic. The Pocket flares look good, a very strong/aggressive look. It looks like a SWAT vehicle or something along those lines.

Leaning toward the flats. When the time comes, I'm going for the in-between... Rugged Ridge's hurricane flares. Flat flares with pockets.

Google Starwood autos in Dallas. They do custom rigs with everything Smittybuilt makes bolted to 'em and paint them with a supposedly Kevlar-based bedliner. They sell a bunch of them around DFW. I'm sure there are other places that can do the same coating for you.

Has Starwood worked out the issues they had with the bedliner fading? I saw pictures of a few that were around a year old that needed a completely new paint job. That was a year+ ago though.

Flatties for sure. Pocket flares look much better on a TJ.

I know guys love to talk about this being just simple bedliner. You should look into what is done and how this is applied before calling it "Bedliner".
FYI, they do other products other than Smitty. They are currently spec'ing another Wrangler for myself(this blue one was a bday present for my wife) My jeep is going to be based on a Rubicon with either Rock Krawler, Metal Cloak, Currie or AEV. They will do what I want. As far as fading, took delivery of Jeep in July and looks as good today as the day it was delivered. They guarantee it for life so im not too worried. The Jeeps they build for "production" are for the person who just wants to buy a jeep already done and ready to go that look good and purpose built for light offroading(My Wife). If she is happy with what is on the car, then im happy.

I don't typically like the pocket style but in this case I do. I think they look better with the front bumper than the flat. Plus they offer great protection which is nice.
