So far so good. I really like the way they look. Plenty of room for 37's, but still look good with 315's.

The D2's were great for me, but when I added the 10" lightbar that really completed the light output.

I used no POD. Just hooked up to battery and used open hole in "A" pillar for the switch.

My setup is doing great. Love every minute of driving it. Only thing I've done recently is add a Cobra 75 CB and Cooltech mounts. All my mod money has currently been going to my 84 CJ7 project. It's getting very close to "complete".

Thank you!! They look really good and once I add 37's the Jeep will look great. All that's left is 37's or 38's, ProRock 44, new gears and new CA's.

DallasJKU Just installed my MCE flat fenders. I have some rear fender well painting and a little around the flares left to do. I really thought my 315's would look ridiculously small. I actually really like the way they look. There is plenty of room for 37's and I will go with those at some point but for now I'm pretty satisfied with how these look. Install was pretty easy especially with another set of hands. Pic soon.

Okay. I would just think that the 37"s would seriously kill your gas mileage. With the Wrangler already not a gas sipper, that may limit your ability to explore too far off the beaten path. Plus I would be concerned that the larger tire would put too much stress on some of the components unless beefed up.

macaw1us I was told by M/C that there is a 5 week back log for the fenders, what have you been told about delivery?

Thanks for the compliments. It's going to look different soon with MCE flat fenders and probably 37" KM2 or STT or MTZ's shortly after. Probably KM2's just based on weight savings alone.

ERAUGrad04 Great looking build and I can assure you that you will not be disappointed with the JWs! I have been running them for about a month now and I always get excited when I get to drive at night!

If I swap lights I think JW's would be the ones to go with. I doubt I will since I hardly drive after dark and I have Rigids for those dark roads.

DallasJKU Just ordered MCE flat fenders. I will see how they look with my 315 Duratracs and if they look way too small then 37" KM2's will be ordered. Pics next weekend probably.

After getting them both on and then seeing the V's I knew they weren't the right solution for me. I thought I would think the smoked appearance was cool, but it took away from the front of the Jeep. Wasn't happy at all with the look or the light output except when on high beams so I sold them yesterday.
