Haha of course. I mean physically one more inch of body lift moves his jeep onc more inch away from the tires ! it's a revelation.

This YJ was HUGE on 35s with 4-link front and rear with a 2" BL. I run a 1.25" bL and I'm thinking of getting rid of it in the near future and running no BL.

I know you asked for 3" Suspension lift with 1" BL pics but here is my jeep at the Chicago T4T run that sits on 33s with 1.25"BL. My motto is NEVER be afraid to cut

Those are the MCE fenders Hi-lined. those are the 1st gen MCE fenders, I don't think you can get em anymore. I think they only have the 2 styles of the 2nd gen.

They don't have any right now cause they are retooling their manufacturing. Haha. And welcome. I actually considered that before but I figure I will save some cash and just do my own tubes when I hiline. I need full tire coverage or at least close for pa roads.

front tube look nice but one thing that not many people think about is if, when your on the trails you nudge a tree(pretty hard) with your front tube fender, you end up pushing your nice new tube fender into your tub cause'n your doors to not open and close right... just my .02 tho, a fellow wheeler show'd me his jeep, and wished he knew about the MCE fenders when he did his. and I thought the new MCE fenders are going to cover the wheels, no?

The 6 inch flare should but. It's gona cost like 3x to build some with mce instead. I still might. Well see. Haha. I need to be a little thrifty if I want my 8.8 in by summer. Hmmm.

But yeah I agree about the tub damage. I don't plan on checking too many trees. I hope not at Least. I might make mine with removable fenders or flares. Wouldn't be too hard to fab up a bolt on set or even a set similar to mc. Nice thing about makin your own stuff is you can do whatever you want then I'm gona move them up and hiline them once I get everything else in place and get steering and brakes done for 37s. I got a few years though so.

I've hit mine pretty well and flopped onto the passenger side. The tub, doors, and fitment between them hasn't changed a hair. If you're that worried, some tub panels that tie the fender and tub together will take care of that problem well....I'll be adding those soon. Rocker guards do the same to a lesser extent.

Nice. What axles are you running, and what else did you upgrade in prep?

I think I might do some frame tie ins on the a pillar and tie the fenders and rockers into a full cage at some point, after I'm sure on keeping the setup. But yeah there are definitely some change for bending the tub but it would take more than the forces seen in a normal minor trail accident.
