Love the rig. Why the switch to the flat flares? Selling the old ones?

I want to do the same lift and I think that tire size is PERFECT.

I already sold the pocket flares. I switched for more clearence and just loved the way flats looked because i saw them on a jeep in person and they looked real good in my opinon

I have bfg km2's 285x75x16 (i wish i could have got 33x12.5x15 but i got a very good deal on these on craigslist). The wheels are black rock 997 size 16x8 with 4" backspacing (again i would perfere 3.75" BS but only had that for 15" rim).

Working right now on a rear bumper or smittybilt xrc front bumper. I can get it from a local guy here for $290 plus tax brand new. I want to get the bumper and winch together at the same time though.

Awesome! I have a 4" lift with a 1" bl and just put the flat fenders on and my tires look way small. I am also running 285's on 16's but I currently have the rubicon wheels with 5" bs. They sit in to far. Yours looks great. Now that I see yours I know I need 3.75" bs and more aggressive tires. Nice build!

sweet build. I just bought a black wrangler X as well. What gears do you have ? Are you running the 3.07's?

Hey guys I just saw my thread got revived. I have 3.73 gears and I did install a new rear DS and SYE along with many more things. I will update my build later when I get home with some pics. But it looks completely different
