My new Bushwhacker Flats

Just got back home with the new look. I actually like it a lot better then I thought. The Bushwhackers look great in person and seem to be well made. 2.5" lift and 35's don't like each other with stock fenders. Ripped off one rear and broke loose both front so had to get fenders quickly. These were not my first choice but glad I got them now.

Renaming Jeep to Boat, lol.

Looks great! So your tires were hitting the OE fenders? Was that with disconnects disconnected?

No, wasn't disconnected. Just hit a wash out on my property after a hard rain (didn't see it). Wasn't going too fast ether, about 20mph. Actually a 3" lift but have a heavy bumper and winch so have about 2.5" actually. Was surprised that it ripped off the rear flare

Looks sweet! I have the same RR bumper and the Bushwacker flatties are on my wishlist, so it's nice to see what the fender/bumper combo looks like.

Love the look. Stubby bumpers and flatties.
Some day I'll have those.

Not sure, had mine put on at the local off-road shop. They trimmed my wheel well liner too. They charged me for 4 hours labor

They claim the fenders has more wheel coverage but when I was looking at them against the stock, it didn't look to me like it had more coverage. Out driving around this morning, it came a downpour, driveway nice a dirty. It doesn't seem so far to be throwing mud up on my side doors like when the stock fenders were on.

The flares look great rics, those MT/Rs holding out ok? From the pic the front ones look pretty worn down?

Their fine. I think it is just the shadowing in the picture alone with the dirt. Drove it through the field before pics to hit a couple low spots to check clearance.
