Pics with lift and flat fenders?????
 
I am torn whether I want a lift, flat fenders, or both.

I like the style and functionality of the Bushwhacker flat fenders, can't stand the stock fenders especially the front ones bouncing around.

I want a 2.5" TF lift for offroading. However, I am worried that it will look awkward having both of them as I will probably only go up to 33x12.5" tires max.

Thank you in advance to anyone who may have this combination and post pictures!

One of the 2 will be under the Christmas tree this year!

So you have 33's on your jeep now with no lift? Correct? Personally, i would go with the TF 2.5" kit. Reason being, because I just ordered one :D but also since you have 33's already, it will look great! If you want to get the flatties too, it wont look bad because you have a 33x12.5 already. They look stupid with the stock tires IMO.

Also true. It'll save you hundreds of $

I have 285/75/16 currently (32.8x11.5ish) I will be going up to 33x12.5(like the size Jimbox has on his) on my next set of tires but that's in a few years. They rub the rears and the fronts are flimsy plus I like the look of flatties. I know either upgrade will get rid of rub and look a lot better, but the plan is to do one this year and the other next year if I like the combined look. I'm thinking this is the look I'm going for with c-res nets and the rims I already have.

I think I just answered the question to my post with this pic, looks like this JK has about a 2.5" lift judging by how the axle is a bit lower than the front bumper. I will be making my own tube doors and keeping the stock front and rear bumpers until damage justifies making the front a stubby or replacing.

Update: Just talked to maintenance guy here at work. He just told me that he would re-gear my Jeep for a 12 pack, so looks like 35's might be in the picture when I need new tires. He has re-geared at least 6 of his own vehicles and has all the tools in his garage! :punk: Then I will have to look into a rear bumper with tire carrier. This thing is a money pit. :banghead:

35's with 2.5" skyjacker and bushwacker flattied

cutting the stockers CAN look good...but I would only recommend it to someone that is a skilled craftsman adept at using the appropriate tools...NOT as easy as it looks...and if you screw them up....going to be looking for new ones anyway

desertgoose 08-12-2011 03:29 PM

Nice rig. I could do it but even if I do it perfect I think it will look cheesy or unfinished. I've decided on both with fenders first, my cost to finish just doubled now that I'm considering 35's and what is needed to accommodate them.

BushWacker flats....here you go. LOVE them. The ARB bumper is killer in my opinion but I can't figure out what I like better. I have 35"s and a 3" TeraFlex but the flats with a smaller lift if I were to go with 33"s, WOW.

Love the flats. Cannot go wrong.

I dont like the look of cut stockers. They are crap to begin with. Cutting them just makes them weaker.

The flats are a bit of a bear to install compared to a tj and the hardware included sucks but man they look and work great.

I'm running a 2.5 bb with stock rollers and BW flats. Have new wheels but no tires yet. Don't really need the tires for anything but looks. Will be going with 35" km2's.

Some times when I look at the jeep I say to myself that it really needs tires and wheels but it wheels great and other times I think they look fine. It will look sick with the wheels I got and 35's though. Gonna regear first.

Sorry I'm a pic whore tonight. One more to see how much room is under the jeep.

desertgoose 08-13-2011 12:19 AM

Im convinced. Going all in, will take time and cash but your awesome pics convinced me. Doesn't hurt that a friend offered free labor for a regear today.

Call Jeep Wrangler Accessories such as Jeep tops, winches, fender flares from manufactures such as BesTop, Rugged Ridge, ARB, OR Fab, Rampage and Smittybilt to get a really good price on the Bushwackers. I love the ones we put on hubby's JK. Looks tons better! I know you have seen it before, but here she is again. 2.5" Teraflex BB, Bushwackers and 315/70/17's

Not that view. Thanks. Ironically after I posted last night I received an email from morris off road about a sale on fenders. I think they are stalking me! Just a couple months early though.

Nice....I pretty much have the same setup. Do you have any more pics from straight on and did you get your 35's yet

Like pics from the front? I can get some. I have not got the 35's yet. I have other things that come first. Funny thing is I'm picking up a set of factory rubicon wheels/tires tomorrow for a trailer i'm building. 35's are not really needed for the wheeling I do even though I wheel it fairly hard. It's a looks thing mostly. I want em bad but I'm also saving for a new can am commander.
