good fender flare to cover tires?

What is a good ff to cover up 33's on 3.75 bs. Function is more important than looks, not going tube though.

To get more travel, about the same distance to the fender, you can look at the flat fender flares. I picked up a set from Bushwacker. They give you an extra 2" of up-travel. Easy to install and they also cover an extra 2" of wheel coverage.

EDIT: you can look at my profile for pictures

JR - I have the same set up as you in terms of back spacing and I went with a set of Rubicon flares because I wanted to keep the "stock" flare look. Rubicon flares (4.5" width) are an inch wider than non-rubicons, so I still have a tiny bit of tire outside of the flare. But, in my opinion, it looks WAY better than a set of after market 6" flares.... I searched my photobucket pics to give you an example of how mine looks, but I can't find anything right now.

7" might be too wide for that set up

I bought these... they say 7" (don't have a clue where they got their measurement)....
They actually ended up being about 6.25" and they are great on my Jeep.
