i love it up there. dont need a jeep with $30k into it to go around. one locker or lsd and youll go most places. i have a factory lsd rear and open front and kept up with the most people. how ever back to the thread. i didnt need to the rear because the rear tires never rubbed. maybe when i do the upper coil relocation and outboard my shocks itll rub.

You can, but only for street use, or extend your bumpstops a **** ton which is kind of redundant. You could do this, a 2 inch budget boost with extended bump stops and be okay for a while

33's, trimming, and a 3 inch lift will work fairly well though. Depending on the actual brand of the lift.

Good quality tin snips. And as the pictures show use painters tape to lay down a straight guide line.

Before and after...

TXHillCountryTJ Where I installed my LED, there is a hole in the metal (covered by the plastic fender material, that is about 3/4" or so in diameter. Drill a hole through the plastic in that location and you won't need to cut through any metal.
Pop the light in, the included grommet will help hold the light in place.

dgthtjhtZDF Very nice! How did you do it?

I used the same exact 3/4" LED lights that were posted above your post. Just using a 3/4" hole saw attached to your drill, you can make the hole to pop the light into. I am sure others will have different methods, but for me a hole saw is the easiest.

TXHillCountryTJ Continuation of the photos.

TXHillCountryTJ Hey all, I appreciate all of the info from this thread. With it I did mine the other day. Here are the results. The LED turn signal I used is set up for 12 volt so there is no issues with the flasher.
In my '01 there is a hole in the sheet metal just behind the flare and these fit perfectly after I drilled a 3/4" inch hole in the flare.

coolhand My front is still just trimmed then I've added on the back, so I don't get hassled by authorities that like to hassle lifted Jeeps, so I'm told?, for the still flat look on back will do front soon, going for praticality not looks, old school I guess.

gcampos24 Almost done myself. Ready for paint.

wranglertj2001 this looks awesome! i didnt like the price of new flat fenders either and personally i think this look better than some of them even! plus you keep your front turn signals too.

Kevin063 I'm definitely picking up some of the 6" stock style fender flares and see if I can chop them up like this. I'd like them to be a little wider than they would be cutting my stock ones. Everyone's looks great, I'm super excited for my next little project!!

Can't remember exactly. It was a while ago. 1"-1.5" maybe. It did make a difference. I used to rub the flares just a little bit before it hit the bumpstops. That little bit of trimming was just enough.
I'm still running the stock trimmed rears with my flat fenders. The remaining lip is about the same as the MCE Flattys.
