Depends on the style of flare you want..
Genright, Poison Spyder, ACE, Bushwacker all make extended coverage fenders

Yes the high tops are wider than stock, by about 1 1/2" approx.

Just to put in a few more suggestions, I'm currently deciding between:
-GenRight 4" bare aluminum $1299 + $137 shipping

-Nemesis Notorious bare aluminum $1248 + $125 shipping

-Metalcloak Hardline steel $879 bare or $1176 powdercoated black + $106 shipping

-Metalcloak Hardline aluminum $1098 bare +$75 shipping -- BUT I don't like the look of the finish on their bare alum as far as I can tell. Hard to find photos of it other than this one, showing WIP, which is prob not a far comparison:


Although eautogrille is an amazing value at $450 for !FOUR! I don't think they look as polished and don't want to do this twice.

As you can see I'm partial to aluminum but could save $300 by going MC bare steel and painting them myself. Hmm. I wouldn't do MCE (although I like the look and the co.) because I want to protect the body, not just cover the tires. I wheel in tight trees and end up pivoting on them often.

A partial consideration on the protection front is being able to add a rocker step, prob from the same co., later. That puts MC and GR high on the list b/c I like their steps better than Nemesis'. Which sucks because otherwise I was all set to go Nemesis! Dammit...

Anyway, would love all opinions. Fire away!

I ran across these one day. 1"or 2" extensions that fit between the body and fender. Bad part might be the shipping from Australia.
JK Wrangler Flare Spacers

Then there are these from Rolling Big Power.

Well, I waited 7 weeks for delivery due to Mopar back order. I watched and read the install several times prior to delivery.

I picked up a plug puller tool that was invaluable. I had picked up a white sharpie to mark the inner fenders for the sabre saw. ( I kept the inner fender liners)

Whole job went very quickly, and the fenders remove just as easily with the included plastic rivets (just like the fasteners for the grill - at the top under the hood).

I've had them off a few times. Once to align the gasket that goes between the flare and the body for appearance. The gasket has adhesive that sticks it to the flare, and can be re-positioned.

Pulled them off once to do some Jeep Stacking at our club's end of summer picnic.

Plan to leave them at home for next year's Jeep Jamboree at Penn's Woods. No sense damaging them there (that's why the stock flares were replaced).


The plastic rivets are great for this, and they provide a good fit using stock holes.

I still love 'em.

Steve

The look isn't for everyone but I didn't want a blacked out jeep like so many others and I love bare aluminum so I went with the MC Hardline fenders. They've just been installed so I haven't tested them yet off-road but I can tell they are damn sturdy, especially compared to the Bushwackers on my last jeep. I plan to add the aluminum rockers and exoskin next.

One more from the rear. These are Genright bumpers by the way. The MC fenders matched up perfectly with the GR rear bumper.

Did you coat the aluminum fenders with anything to stop them from oxidizing?

Well, they are brand new, but I've talked with a couple of other jeepers in my jeep club that have bare aluminum and it hasn't been a big issue, at least here in Florida. They just use some aluminum polish when they wash their jeeps. One guy has a lot of aluminum on his YJ that he's had for many years and has had no problems.

Lucky you. Hopefully, the Florida weather is a little nicer to them then the weather would be up here in NY. I would think that I would have to at least clear coat them where I am.

Just saw another option that seems too good to be true. Rampage 4" flares from 4wd.com for $252. Black powder coat over steel. Free shipping. 5% off w code RMN5OFF. https://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Fender-Flar...t_pn=RPP867981

Anyone have any reviews?

Those look a lot like the Smittybilt XRC fender flares. One of the guys from the club that I am in runs them. Those flares are okay, but they do not even come close to covering the width of your tire. If you use them, just be prepared to have mud, dirt, rocks thrown up the side of your Jeep when wheeling. Also, if you are up north and get snow and the associated salt on the roads, your Jeep will take a beating from it.
