Let me see your FLAT FENDERS (not trim jobs)

I think flat fenders are next on my mod list for my 2013 JKU Rubicon ... now just trying to figure out which ones I like the best.

Pics with brief descriptions would be appreciated!

'Trim job' just sounds dirty.

I'm thinking I might want something just a tad wider than the factory flares for extra protection. Been looking really hard @ Xenon. I think they can be had 1 1/2" wider than the stockers. Should help cover my 35" Nittos a little better, but I'm just a little unsure of the look I'd get ... never really seen a setup like this up close.

If your looking for wider, bushwacker makes a pretty wide one. It's not the skinny flat flares you see so much on peeps jeeps it's the older ones they offer too.

I will have to get some better pics of my flat fender flares, I am running the bushwackers. get them from amazon, they were around 450 bucks.
I love the look of the flats. very pleased with them. Not too difficult to install. Some trimming of the inner plastic fender liners.

But really, its not too bad. Figure about 5-8 hours, depending on your mechanical ability.

Thanks for those of you who have posted pics so far, it's greatly appreciated. You all have some nice rigs! I like the looks of the tires sticking a little out of the fenders but just really want some extra protection with some wider fenders.


Keep the pics coming!

This is not your pretty mall crawler, but here is mine with bushwhackers.
If you think you might get in to this kind of a jam, you will want something more substantial. My bushwhackers are probably going to go away this winter. I have had to re-fasten them a couple of times already.

But it sure was a fun day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No, You have to trim the ones on the jeep, or you can always just remove them, The rears might be ok, but they keep a lot of krap out of the engine bay.

You use your stock liners and cut them.

I prefer the look and they provide better protection compared to plastic fenders that can be ripped off on the trail/

I have Ace's fenders flares, way better than my bushwackers on my last jk



Bushwackers

the littlest bump likes to tear them off, but they are easy to get back on
