Are the high top flares wider than the stock flares? I'm moving to a state that requires the width of the tire within the flares (my 35"s current stick out from the stock flares.)

If they don't, can someone recommend a non-Mopar high top flare that's wider?

I just measured my Mopar high tops compared to the factory fenders on the garage floor and the front are about 2inches wider the back about 1.5 inches. My KO2 315 70 17 are not sticking out past fenders. I am running factory Rubicon wheels with 1.5 Spidertrac spacers.

Hmm..local Jeep dealer said the high tops are the same width as the high tops. Did you get something special ...or is the dealer wrong?

About .25-.50 wider rear and .50-.75 front. I was little off with my first measurement

This is just perfect in combo with the AEV Borah (+4mm offset) / 315/70/17 and no lift in order to not stick out too far. Thanks for sharing.

The 4-door JKU version of these flares show as being discontinued by Mopar. Does anyone known if Mopar plans to make them again for the JKU? Or if the manufacturer may be re-releasing these same flares as non-Mopar branded in the future?

I really like these flares but can't find them anywhere for the 4-door.

Think I saw them on @Quadratec with a shipping date of May 1st.

Edit: Disregard, I looked again and it was for the 2dr version.

https://www.quadratec.com/products/12514_1041.htm

If someone has a 2dr and wants them then the paintable ones are in stock and the textured says May 1st..

Maybe QT can chime in on the 4dr version(s)

Looking around the interwebs for some tube fenders for myself and stumbled upon these and remembered reading this post. No affiliation what so ever with the seller. Just remember seeing interest in these on the forum

Aww man. It's really a bummer these got discontinued and are so hard to find now. I've seen the MCE fenders as another option, but those require drilling the sheetmetal and can't re-use the rear inner fender liner. These HighTops were the only ones that look totally factory, re-use the OEM fender liners, and clear 35's. Really a shame they aren't produced anymore.

I have a set for the JKU that has a little damage to the front right fender. When I went to replace it (easier than trying to fix it) I found that they had gone up in price a fair chunk. I am not surprised that they are now discontinuing them.
ACE has a new metal fender that is kinda like the Mopar High Tops but cooler looking and in metal.

they should have just sold the Front - high clearance, doesn't looks like you would even need the rear one's? unless being wider it might look dis-proportional?
