Need some info....

Okay so I'm tired of my flares and I'm wondering if there is any flat piece of material to cover the holes up on the fender. I've been looking around and can't find anything. I don't want another flare, I just want a piece that covers the holes and makes it look good.

i don't know of anything to cover the holes (except for welding in some metal or bondo/fiberglass) but I do know that if you put on flat fenders that will give you the look you want.

Your going to need some seriously huge mud flaps then, cops will tag you in an instant.. Keep some type of flare on there, it looks bad without them

I think by law you'll also need side marker lights. All the aftermarket flares I see have them.

Flares sere a purpose. Your vehicle will stay in better shape. Also you don't want to be one of those people who kick up rocks and break people's windshields

Throwing stuff is one thing but if your fender less jeep throws a rock and breaks my windshield I will call the police to issue you a ticket and them make your insurance pay to replace it.

If money is an issue, you could just TRIM your existing flares......that's what I did.

That looks good man. But I'm going to custom make some flat piece that goes over the holes.
