3.5'' of lift, 33s, and tube fenders.. look funny?
 
well.. tonite im going to pick up some flareless tube fenders.. im currently running 2'' procomp coils in the front (probably really only 1.25'' of lift now, my stock rear ones sit level with all my acos set at 1.25'') i also got a jks 1.25'' bodylift.. i have 33x12.5'' procomp mts also.. what do you guys think?

actually after looking at it.. my jeep sits about half an inch higher in the front.. but i figured the tube fenders weigh a little more than the regular fenders, and also i got 2 spares (one in the back and one on the rear) and my hardtop on

It should look sweet. Im gonna be running 36's on 4" lift and flat fenders. What size tire is that silver TJ running? Your jeep looks beautiful by the way.

AzTJ 01-27-2009 03:22 PM

I think it would look sweet too.

I want to go maybe with a 1" BL (4.5" total) flat high-line fenders in the front and run 37's. :D

MoA 01-27-2009 03:29 PM

my gfs jeep (the silver one) has 35x12.5 bfg mts

i plan on going tube fenders f&r (really wanting 3'' flares but ill stick to flareless for now at the price of tube fenders) i planned on running 36'' irokes on my current lift with tube fenders.. but this wont be until after i finish my lift (maybe even put 3'' coils in the front to put my 2'' procomp coils back in the rear) and either going currie shortarm or a longarm lift.. plus gotta lock and regear the axles i just swapped in =p

and thanks.. shes damaged and hopefully these tube fenders will bring her sex appeal back lol.. every time i see the damaged fender i feel like i abused her =/

heh.. dont get my started on the couples thing.. i HATE offroading with her because she refuses to listen to me.. no matter if im wrong or right.. and we tend to argue =p lol but she does love offroading

and she wont drive my jeep offroad.. im sure she will one day when i get it a lot bigger..

distortedtj 01-27-2009 04:43 PM

Waiting......

Got them fenders yet?...................


waiting............

MoA 01-27-2009 04:47 PM

going tonite.. will post pics right when i get home =D

distortedtj 01-27-2009 04:51 PM

Well the fenders will look good. But you can't help the barbie gold paint.:flipoff::p

4point 01-27-2009 04:53 PM

Tubes will always look good no matter what lift and tires.

Scout 01-27-2009 04:54 PM

I had tube fenders with a 4" lift and 34's. Let me know if you want a pic. It looked good to me.

GrnTJ 01-27-2009 05:47 PM

Hmm, tell your gf to have a little chat with mine. She drives a liberty right now and I think she needs a Wrangler. She wanted me to build her a YJ on 1 tons and 38's but I told her I didnt have the $$ for that and she said she's gonna have me build it for her when she gets enough money... probably gonna be a LONG time before that happens. She does like to wheel but she needs to learn to drive and she isnt about to learn in my TJ:D

AzTJ 01-27-2009 06:11 PM

If you didn't know, REV111 is back in business. :D

Are you only asking him?:D

jdhallissey 01-27-2009 10:48 PM

We all know who wears the damn pants in that relationship!!! (she does) haha her jeep is bigger then yours! Just playin yours should look awesome if not you can drive hers!LOL

MoA 01-27-2009 11:24 PM

yah i saw that about rev111 the other day on pirate4x4.. not really into their tube fenders that much tho..

i got the tube fenders tonite.. got some work let to be done on them still though =/ oh well i dont have the money for the paint anyways..

and grntj.. when we went to silver lake dunes, a tj was there with a 8.8 in the rear and a lt1 in it.. my gf turned to me and asked me how much it would cost.. i think shes waiting on me to upgrade (eventually ill stretch and go 1-tons) and then she can have all my upgrades.. its nice having 2 tjs.. hers needs fixed though, it rides horrible..

as for the paint.. if i x-line them, can i eventually paint them to match? i know it would have a rough texture but im not sure if the x-line holds paint

GrnTJ 01-27-2009 11:41 PM

It should. I know herculiner does because Ive painted that before and it held great. The dunes are such a blast. Silver lake is one of my favorite places to wheel in MI.

cool cool.. i think im going to x-line (or something similar) until i get the rear corner guards to paint to match the gold of my jeep.. figured i can manage the rough texture.. i plan on giving these to the girl in a few years for tube fenders with flares

i havent taken my jeep to silver lake dunes yet, but i drove bres jeep, it was pretty fun, the sand got old real quick.. i like rocks =D

I have 4" lift, 33s & PS Tube Fenders and luv that set-up. The 33s stuff even better now and still have room before hitting the inside of the tube fender. Actually tried w/ 35's that a friend let me borrow as well and stuffs just nicely.

i havent ran into ANY rubbing problems :flipoff: lol jk.. but i cant wait.. i dont even have bumpstops other than my acos.. and i already have no worries on bottoming out my shocks, now i guess i need aftermarket control arms

booger 01-28-2009 03:33 PM

make sure you cut down that front bumper so it looks right with the new fenders.

snwchris 01-28-2009 07:20 PM

I have tubes and still have the stock bumper. I haven't cut it yet, since it's been taking a good beating from the Badlands and haven't found one that I like that isn't gonna cost me an arm & leg to buy

jeepgirl05x 01-29-2009 02:43 AM

Im glad my boyfriend likes to talk shit about me on here!! glad i have an account so i can defend myself....i dont like listening to him because i am a beginner at offroading and he explains it once calmly and when my confidence level falls and i get kinda frustrated...he's not so calm:banghead:

thats my story and I'm stickin to it!!

jeepgirl05x 01-29-2009 02:45 AM
