    Flat fender folks... Questions for you?

    I so just scrapped my stockers for the Smittybuilt XCR flats and now I am not sure I love them. I feel I might have to much wheel gap now. I have about 10.5 inches from the top of the tire to the bottom of the flare on the fronts. Please weight in.

    I agree with Overlander, I prefer the before look.

    Looks like any normal flat fender. Don't know if it's to late to return them, but you could cut your stock fenders and make them flat for free. You could also cut the stock to whatever look you like best. Other than that, they look totally fine. Not to much gap.

    Tough call. I think I agree with Overlander. If you don't have rubbing with stock fenders and you aren't planning on ever going to bigger tires, then I'd go back to stock and put the $ elsewhere.

    They look too narrow for me. I'd cut the stock fenders

    I like the before. But bigger tires could definitely fix the problem.

    Both look sweet, but I have to agree the stocks look better imo.

    I have 37s on my other rig. I wanted to stick to 35s on this one.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
