Anyone just leave off the fender flares?

I removed the flares to paint them and it looks so good I'm taking my sweet time putting them back on. I'll probably reinstall them this weekend though. I was wondering if anyone ever just left them off and mounted the side lights somehow.
Would enjoy seeing some mod pics.

In VA you need some type of flares to pass inspection. Not sure what yours looks like without the stock flares on. This is my Jeep with aftermarket fabricated flares and side markers. Can't take credit as the PO did it, but it is an alternative.

Check your state DMV laws, some states do not even allow tires to stick out past the fenders to pass inspection and the police can harass you if they do.

Ignore the tarp. It rained and I vowed to never put the top up till winter. So I looked up the law and Indiana could care less about fenders. (We still can't buy beer on Sunday though.)

I personally think it does not look good with the metal lip and holes hanging down. If you like this look then cut them off and put on some MCE fenders.

I think its the skinner look that appeals to me. I may consider the mces. I did see a jeep once that had the holes filled in somehow and light mounted. It was a nice modification they did but have yet to find a pic of one similiar.
