3.5'' of lift, 33s, and tube fenders.. look funny?

well.. tonite im going to pick up some flareless tube fenders.. im currently running 2'' procomp coils in the front (probably really only 1.25'' of lift now, my stock rear ones sit level with all my acos set at 1.25'') i also got a jks 1.25'' bodylift.. i have 33x12.5'' procomp mts also.. what do you guys think?

actually after looking at it.. my jeep sits about half an inch higher in the front.. but i figured the tube fenders weigh a little more than the regular fenders, and also i got 2 spares (one in the back and one on the rear) and my hardtop on

It should look sweet. Im gonna be running 36's on 4" lift and flat fenders. What size tire is that silver TJ running? Your jeep looks beautiful by the way.

I think it would look sweet too.

I want to go maybe with a 1" BL (4.5" total) flat high-line fenders in the front and run 37's.

my gfs jeep (the silver one) has 35x12.5 bfg mts

i plan on going tube fenders f&r (really wanting 3'' flares but ill stick to flareless for now at the price of tube fenders) i planned on running 36'' irokes on my current lift with tube fenders.. but this wont be until after i finish my lift (maybe even put 3'' coils in the front to put my 2'' procomp coils back in the rear) and either going currie shortarm or a longarm lift.. plus gotta lock and regear the axles i just swapped in =p

and thanks.. shes damaged and hopefully these tube fenders will bring her sex appeal back lol.. every time i see the damaged fender i feel like i abused her =/

Hmm, tell your gf to have a little chat with mine. She drives a liberty right now and I think she needs a Wrangler. She wanted me to build her a YJ on 1 tons and 38's but I told her I didnt have the $$ for that and she said she's gonna have me build it for her when she gets enough money... probably gonna be a LONG time before that happens. She does like to wheel but she needs to learn to drive and she isnt about to learn in my TJ

yah i saw that about rev111 the other day on pirate4x4.. not really into their tube fenders that much tho..

i got the tube fenders tonite.. got some work let to be done on them still though =/ oh well i dont have the money for the paint anyways..

and grntj.. when we went to silver lake dunes, a tj was there with a 8.8 in the rear and a lt1 in it.. my gf turned to me and asked me how much it would cost.. i think shes waiting on me to upgrade (eventually ill stretch and go 1-tons) and then she can have all my upgrades.. its nice having 2 tjs.. hers needs fixed though, it rides horrible..

as for the paint.. if i x-line them, can i eventually paint them to match? i know it would have a rough texture but im not sure if the x-line holds paint

It should. I know herculiner does because Ive painted that before and it held great. The dunes are such a blast. Silver lake is one of my favorite places to wheel in MI.

cool cool.. i think im going to x-line (or something similar) until i get the rear corner guards to paint to match the gold of my jeep.. figured i can manage the rough texture.. i plan on giving these to the girl in a few years for tube fenders with flares

i havent taken my jeep to silver lake dunes yet, but i drove bres jeep, it was pretty fun, the sand got old real quick.. i like rocks =D

I have 4" lift, 33s & PS Tube Fenders and luv that set-up. The 33s stuff even better now and still have room before hitting the inside of the tube fender. Actually tried w/ 35's that a friend let me borrow as well and stuffs just nicely.

make sure you cut down that front bumper so it looks right with the new fenders.

I have tubes and still have the stock bumper. I haven't cut it yet, since it's been taking a good beating from the Badlands and haven't found one that I like that isn't gonna cost me an arm & leg to buy
