I dont know anything about those myself but pricewise I would also check out e-AutoGrilles. Extra 5% off when you buy 3+ from e-autogrilles

There is no reason for you to post the same question in both the Build Forum and the General Discussion Forum. If you cannot determine the best forum for your question... pick one instead of posting in multiple forums.

He is new, I'm sure he will learn the etiquette for posting. A welcome and an explanation to help generally works better.

I went with the Smittybilt rear flares and got front fenders from CC Fab. They're a whole lot cheaper, like half the price, but you have to paint them yourself.

How did the rear fenders hold up/ look. Do they allow you to fit bigger tires than with with stock fenders?

Sorry... Maybe I'm just PMS-ing a little today. I didn't mean to be a smartass or anything, just letting you know. Let us know which fenders you end up going with.

The rear fenders still look good. I painted right over the powdercoat, and it came out nice.they allow for slightly bigger tires since the flare doesn't hang down any, but the opening is the stock size. You could always get the tj tube flares to open it up some, or cut the YJ flares.

I have the front fenders with the 3 inch flares I love them. I want to get the rear flares but they said you gotta get the corner guards that wrap around to install the rear fenders

I can't decide. I found the ones with the 3" flare for $439 but then I just found the regulars with no built in flare for $339. I'm willing to pay the extra money but is it worth it for the 3" flare?

This is what the details are for the ccfabs. So does that mean no cutting?

Fenders bolts on to stock fender location. Keep your stock inner fender no need to relocate any of your stock components

You have to cut, just like the Smittybilts. They go on the exact same way. It's just saying you leave the inner fender how it is.

With the smittybilt front fenders you have to cut it's kinda a pain they give you this tear drop looking templet you trace out and cut the you got to cut down by the tub and cut off where the fender bolts to the radiator. You'll end up cutting more than you need especially if your doing it by your self. Then have fun adjusting the fender and the grill supports. And it's definitely worth getting the ones with the 3 inch flare I almost bought the regular ones and I would have regretted it because way to much of the tire would have stuck out

The 3 inch flare on the xrc armor does make it look really good. These things will definatelly protect your Jeep.
