Suggestions for flat fenders.

I'm running 33s with budget lift but I rub my stock fenders all the time. Photos of different flat fenders would help also the good and bad advice.

Like other's stated try cutting your stock fenders...worse case scenario you don't like them or take them off and sell them and purchase a set.

I put money towards Bushwacker flats after I sold my color matching fenders.

couple pics of the BW's

What budget boost are you running and what width tires are you running as well?

I want something that will be flat all the way through, but will go to where the front of the factory one does (curves down in front) to create a near seamless look for my new front bumper. I also want something that will stay wide towards the back (wider than stock, obviously or I would just cut the stock and be set) to protect from rocks and stuff kicking up and hitting the side of the Jeep. Anyone know of anything that fits the bill...? I have yet to see anything like that.

I almost order MCE from Northridge till I saw the Bushwackers. I want the widest flat fenders I can get.

I think River Raider is now making extra wide fenders for people that want to keep their tires covered.

Yep they are:

Heard a lot of stories of Xenons sagging. So down to the Bushwackers and Metalcloaks. The Metalcloaks are not as wide as I prefer though, so these River Raiders look very interesting. If all else fails...Bushwackers. Maybe I'll get over the wider-is-better view...maybe.

The bushwhackers… Do not waste your money! The top doesn't secured to the bumper very well. First time you rub them on a tree or a rock peel away from the frame... I replaced mine with Metal Cloak and I gave the Bushwackers away. Don't get me started on their customer service!

Useful feedback. I do like the Metalcloaks, and even their inner fenders...those look like they really help with engine cooling too. Now I kinda wish I had not paid $295 for white (body-color) fenders.
