AEV front bumper w/non factory flares?

Show me some please. I'm mostly considering MCE wide flares, or trimming the stock flares, but would love to see anything else too. Thx!

See link below for pics. Not mine but it is a good looking Jeep. Surprisingly it doesn't look bad. I wouldn't have guessed it because the AEV bumpers are designed to flow with the factory fenders.

I have the full AEV bumper on mine as well, and would also be interested to see some aftermarket fenders that looks good with it. I've seen some that have it done with aftermarkets and it doesn't look right. Also saw where one guy went with aftermarket flares and chopped off the ends of his AEV..didn't look too bad, but he needed to seal up the ends of the bumper in my opinion.

I went through this a couple of year ago. I wanted to run MC fenders. I saw the pics of people who turned the AEV bumper into a shorty but couldn't see the point in destroying a perfectly good AEV bumper. I ended up selling the AEV bumper and getting the MC fenders and a bumper as well.

I do love the look of mine, but I know I'll eventually go to 37s, and don't want to lift her past the 2.5" where she sits presently. I'm getting ready to do some upgrades now, and don't want to redo everything later which is my usual MO. The white one linked has pretty much convinced me that I'll not be keeping my AEV if I go the fender route unfortunately.

I found a few pics off the internet looking for this exact thing. I didn't care for the look. So I am pulling the AEV bumper this weekend, installing a PSC Brawler Lite and going with flat fenders soon - either MCE or PSC Narrows.

Probably too late, but I saw Rockslide Engineering makes a wide fender that I think will go well with the AEV bumper.

Maybe not, but it doesn't out of place like the narrows do. I could live happily with your setup.

True... It doesn’t look bad, I’ve had it like this for 7 years.
