As for the fender flares, there are a lot of options out there, from unpainted aluminum ($$) to the popular flat Bushwackers ($$). Lol...you'll find out shortly that all Jeep stuff is ($$).
I went with the Bushwacker flatties. Installation was hideously tedious. Think I spent around 7 hours, total, putting them on. Personally, I think they look great. Some probably don't agree.
Some fenders will look good painted; others probably oughta stay their original color.
You'll have to decide on what you like. Just like with bumpers...all pretty much subjective.
Here are some links to various types of fenders.

|lsu60driver||Thanks for the responses thus far! Very cool you guys aren't bashing my brains for such a common thread. Just a noob trying to get into the Jeep addiction. So far I've gotten a locking gas cap (probably just a placebo for me) Gorilla locking lugs, K&N air filter. My agenda right now is headlights, fenders, and maybe some interior additions before I go for the lift/tires/wheels. I plan on dropping some coin around the summer time on the big stuff so be prepared for another noob post!|

And here's a link to the site that sells the Rallylights. You'll need harnesses as well, I believe...that info's in the earlier links I sent you.

Whip through the three threads below, to get a better idea of the Rallylights. Pay special attention to the posts by Hilldweller and Krutj, our resident lighting poobahs.

Ok, I have searched throughout this forum and another popular one. I just bought a 12' JKU with a few optional factory upgrades. This is my first Wrangler and besides going bonkers on the lift, tires, wheels (which I plan to do - just not yet) I want a few simple upgrades. I primarily need advice on headlights/foglights and maybe some additional lighting. A lot of guys recommend Deltas but I want to make sure it's completely street legal and a big improvement. I have no desire to have blue colored lights or anything that looks "cool." I simply want a drastic improvement to the stock headlights and something easy, although I'm not opposed to wiring changes.
In addition, any advice on simple fender flare option. The stock ones are a little TOO much plastic for me. Any other quick or easy upgrades would be appreciated. I absolutely love the Jeep/ community that comes with it. Please to club me like a baby seal for posting such a common thread!
