fireguy I saw the video where the side marker light was relocated inboard on the inner splash well at the front of the fender until he could get a led lamp for the modified fender.

Vici For those that cut their fenders themselves, did anyone mount their side markers underneath? I've seen this done but haven't figured out how.

If that's in the youtube, my bad. I can't watch youtube at uh...work.

fireguy They both look great and it is not too bad to do the work. I may have to invest in an air saw, it looks more suited to cutting the fenders than a standard saber saw. Thanks for the video and pic's form both of you.

convict27 Trim away. I did with the intention of eventually replacing them. I actually like how they turned out and now I can spend some of my money on other things.

I wasn't a fan of flat fenders and was even looking into the Bushwacker Pocket Flares (they look great on TJs but look too huge on JKs).
I finally settled on Ace wide tubular fenders. They are a little pricy ($700 for all 4) but they are the same width as stock fenders so they keep the mud from flying around as much but they are flatter for rock crawling. The best thing is that they are made of steel and are really solid.
Also I love their lifetime warranty "You break it during off-road use, send it back to us and we will replace it free of charge, minus shipping costs. No questions asked"

fireguy I might go that route and see how it turns out. If it does not work out no problem. Thanks again for the info.

Did them myself with a jig saw , the fronts are strong and stiff if you keep the hard plastic inside the flare also if you don't mind put a few screws in the flares to the body helps a lot

The rears put some screws in the flares to help to

And thank you
