08 JK versus Xenon fender flares

Installed my front and rear Xenons yesterday.............. HOLY COW DO THEY NOT WORK when you are running stock wheels and tires!!!

I knew it'd be funny looking but DAMN. It's just BAD! Problem is I won't have the cash to do my lift, wheels/tires for a few months. I guess I'm just going to have to tell people "these are just my street tires and wheels."

I'll back it out of the garage and get the cell camera out. That way the grainy quality might help mask the sheer acre of wheel gap.

Nope, there are rubberized versions that twist and flex. We did the cabin of our CJ5 in it, works great.
