How big of tires do you have on this now that you have the tube fenders on, with a four inch lift it looks like 37?, what happens in the rear, are you getting a lot of rubbing in the rear?

those are 37's he has on with a 4 inch lift, the front axle has been pushed foward a bit, I think around an inch or so as well as the rear axle being moved back an inch or two. He just trimmed out the flares on the rear and a little sheet metal if I remember corectly. He has a set of rear cornerguards I had bent up for him, they just need finished off, but haven't had much time. the last I knew he thought about lowering the jeep another inch because of the clearance he gained with the front fenders. Hope this helps

Thanks for the info, I would like to get to 35's and would rather do tube fenders and possible mods to the rear quarter, with out going up 6-1/2" Flopin, is not my favorite thing, and I do not want to go to full width axles. Good info, thanks.

I put the stock one back in, but had to shift it over a little and drill new mounting holes.
And they are actually pipe fenders

hey pipe, tube, it is all manufactured the same way, just minus one process and about 1/2 the price
