Time to haul out my beloved jeep from hibernation!! Ive been outta the game 7ish or more years. Plans are: install my 35s. New spicer wheel joints. Oil and diff fluids. New steering heims. Nss and tps took a crap. Grease everything. What do i use on currie joints? And lastly... flares..i dont want to lay down $$$ on bushwacker flat flares. Anything better.stronger or fab place with kit flares? Ill need 2 front floorpans. Whats best route? Cant wait

I just got done building my own flares over the weekend they were fairly simple to do i used 14 gauge (5/64”)metal for the armor and 11 gauge (1/8”)flat bar for the actual flare

Looking good! Yours is the same color as mine though your paint is in much better shape.

Ya I thought about that - I used nutserts in the body to bolt the armor to, then the flare is welded to the armor. I will keep these on for highway travel and on the roads to work and back but when I get to a trail or in the woods that’s gonna be tight I just unbolt them and take them off

Ya they are 15x10 -3.75 which is a -44 offset
If you go to a 15x8 -3.75 it will only be a -24 or close to that offset give or take a few depending on the wheel this a pic before the flares were put on and one I took just now flexing it out lol

Re: Been awhile!

Ya man i dig it... Thats how my zj looked.. Xj just not dign the 15x8s. I thought back spacing on some new 15x8s would fix it- everyone hardcore swears 15x8 > 15x10 when it comes to low pressure tires off road- 15x8 keeps the bead on better...but the contact path is lower and it would appear to be less stable imo

Ya - I run about 10 psi on a load range c (6) ply tire and never had a problem - wider stance I like it. But I don’t get too nuts lol
