Xenon Flat Panel Fender Flares

I just found the "Xenon Flat Panel Fender Flares" and i like how they look.

Are they installed on the same points than the stock flares or do I have to drill some new holes?
Do they come in black colour like my actual Omix-Ada flares?

You could have "real" tube fenders for that price.

i live in germany and our las say that the tires must be covred by the fenders. that´s why i can´t install tube fenders.
and i don´t want to buy the xenon flares. they are very expensive in my opinion. only if i own too much money in the future (in my deams) i will buy them.

so get tube fenders with the 6" flare...or do you need 7"

they mount in the stock holes.

i considered these too but then looked at a before/after pic with the flat flares and i liked the look of the jeep better with the warn trail flares (before pic)...warn trail flares look like rubi flares.

another problem. here in europe the stock blinker and sidemarker lights work both as blinkers. we need front and side blinkers at the front of our cars.

There has been a lot of buzz on the internet about those fender flares in the last few days. From the information I have gathered, you DO get some increased clearance (supposedly), they are pretty durable, do NOT come painted (I believe I read they come primed), and they are simple bolt ons, like Bushwackers. This is all heresay, not personal experience. The example I read of the durability, was a 250 pound man sitting on the flare in 35 degree weather. The flares bent under his weight, then came right back to their shape. No experience hitting trees etc. wheeling yet. They seem to be about the same quality as OEM from what I read. Price wise? Ya, I think they are a little high, but when you add up the cost of paint and side marker lights for real tubes, these are noticeably cheaper, and do look very good IMHO. If you get them, let me know how you like em Nic.

Edit: BTW, you can order them in all 4, rear 2, front 2, or just as a single. I assume the idea is, rear 2 incase you have tube fronts, and single incase you wack one wheeling or w/e,

You can put the side markers in the hood like MR. CLIFFORD did. And the front turn signals can be moved to where the CJ and YJ have them, under the headlight. You have to be creative!

do you have pics with the blinkers in the grill and on the side?

the front tube fenders are mounted where the stock fenders are installed. but how do i install the rear fenders? do i have to cut the stock rear fender? or do i have to weld?
is there a good write-up?

i like the combination of th tube fenders and teh rock sliders on this red TJ. and i think that would look gread on my TJ.

didn't read the write up...but for PSC, you can buy the crusher corers and then weld the flares to them...or you can buy them with a 6" flare already on it. (im talking rear tube fenders)
