Which fender flares for LJ with 4 inch lift and 33's

I am looking for some fender flares for my 2005 LJ and was hoping to get some ideas. I am brand new to the jeeping community as this is my first jeep, so I apologize now for being so uneducated. I have a four inch lift with 33 inch tires. I like the look of the bushwacker flat flares but I don't know if it will look funny with 33 inch tires. Thanks for the replies and photos if you have them.

don't get Bushcrackers.

what are the tire coverage laws in your area? I run Rubicon flares and they're pretty good for 33s, but they do rub when the tire is fully tucked. They also don't offer full coverage. You can get wider flares, like 6" or 7" Warn, Rugged Ridge, etc that will tuck a 33x12.50R15 without rubbing. Rubbing the flares isn't that big of a deal tho...plastic moves

4" lift on 33X12.5X15's. I got the 7" flares for tread coverage, as it is required here in OR.

1st pic of my LJ with the Bushwacker Flat Fenders with 33's no lift

2nd pic of my LJ with the Bushwacker Flat Fenders with 35's with 4.5 lift

The Bushwacker Flat Fenders gives you an extra 2.75" of clearance (which you will love), you can run 35's if you wanted too with your current lift of 4"...

Oh yah, and I DO have full coverage on the 35x12.50R15's that I have on my Jeep too...

Good luck and I hope that this helped you out...

Can I run 35 inch tires with just a 4 inch lift or do I have to do a bunch of other mods? I drive this Jeep as my daily driver as well and I have read that you should not run 35's without a bunch of extra stuff.

You stated in your original post that you do have a 4" lift, yes? Then yes, you can run 35's as long as you have the Flat Fenders. I know that some people don't like them, but I hate BL's (body lifts) so I went with the Flat Fenders. I have a 4 1/2" lift with the Flat Fenders and I am running 35x12.50R15 on my jeep and the tires NEVER rub... But remember that I'm not rock crawling either, just trails and mud, lots of mud... And like I said before the Bushwacker Flat Fenders give you 2.75" more clearance...
