Does rear defrost work? if not its probably the relay. Also visual checks on fuses doesn't always work. Need a continuity tester or volt meter. Sorry to preach if you're already doing that......

Those fenders are on my list BUT i'm not sure if I need 3" or 4.5" (other brand of fender). I MIGHT run 1" wheel spacers in the future but that's a maybe.

Here's how she sits now:


Thanks!
I ran into the same issue you are; and i did a bit of guess work. But i'll pass my results having made my decision. I'll grab some pictures for you tomorrow.

Before i swapped fenders, i had normal stock fender flares on(Not the 1" extended sahara ones). Using a plum die, i measured over the fender down to the tire tread. My 31" duratracs jutted out about a half inch. With the tube fenders, they come out about 1 1/2". So you lose about 1" in coverage going from stock to 3" tubes. This wasn't a big issue for me, as it's barely noticeable to the naked eye. And my Jeep passed inspection just after installing these, with no mention of tire coverage. Though this will vary depending on how picky your inspection place is.

If you want to go the 100% legal route, you'll probably want to go with the 4.5" fenders. But from what I've collected about coverage laws and how they're enforced, the general idea is that as long as they're not jutting out an extremely noticeable distance like 3", you'll most likely go unnoticed. Besides, there's plenty of other *technically* not legal things on my rig I've never gotten stopped for.
And if all else fails, I've heard of people using that plastic garden edging to make their own make-shift flares.

Hope this helps!

Doc_H clay bared and waxed her now she looks brand new ps she is a 99

SolarColumbia Sanded, epoxy primed and painted rust spots on fender around bolt holes for fender flare. Painted brake drums with one coat Rustoleum Rust Reformer followed by Rustoleum gloss black. One rear wheel was torqued on to like 200+ foot lbs and I broke a flex head and an extension getting the lug nuts off. Had to use 2 ft length of pipe over the tool and pull really hard. Will have to replace some tools and probably pick up a 40" 3/4 drive breaker bar in case this ever happens again. First time taking wheels off since I got the Jeep so I don't know who to 'thank.'

ChaTownTJ Installed two clamp collars on my sway bar. It has been shifting and rubbing the frame on the driver's side, which made this terrible screeching sound. Ordered from McCaster-Carr on Saturday and received them today. First "modification" I've made since I bought it. Big moment!
