Hmm found a couple.


Hard to believe theres 38's under there. Good shot of the flares though.


Boggers are on a 15x10 if that gives you an idea of the coverage of them.



Dont think i got a straight on view of them..but you get the idea.

Here you go, Rugged Ridge 7". It takes away some of the aggresive look having the flares out to the edge of the 11.50 tires, but it really keeps out the mud. With the factory flares and these tires, rocks, mud and everything else would get flung everywhere. My wife and daughter love to go wheeling, but they didn't like the mud getting in their hair. With these flares we can do some serious mudding with the top off and very little if any ever makes it into the cabin. The day I got hit in the head with a rock slung up from my tires was the day I decided to get 7" flares. Not a single rock has entered the cabin since.

Couldnt find any after shots, however here is an in progress on the day I put the Rugged Ridge flares on. I am very pleased with them and they look great. Stock Moab rims with 1 1/4 spacers and 285/70s.

I need to take some new pics

Hmmm... They don't look as bad as I thought they would. I have a lot of tire sticking out to from 12.5s and 3-5/16" BS. I haven't had much of an issue with rocks hitting me, but I do wear safety glasses when the doors are off. Getting hit in the eye at 70mph would suck bad.

These are 7" Fairchild fenders from quadratec. No more road dirt/snow getting thrown around all over the side. Install was simple and painless. I have 32x11.5x15 on the jeep now. I don't have any pics with the 33s yet.

Not sure what brand they are because they were on my jeep when I bought it. I like them a lot though!

This is how good 7" flares work. Tire 100% covered in mud, little to no mud on the Jeep.....I like it.
