Stock rear fenders = mud collection devices

Did my fender chop the other day and it was amazing how much crud came out of the rear fenders.

Rear fenders = MCDs ( mud Collection Devices).

When I ripped my rear wheel wells out while doing my flar chop I had a pound or two of red clay and mud fall out and I had pressure washed the JK 3 times since the last time I had it out wheeling.

Pics of said flare chop job?

Looks much better. I too did not find much mud stuck in the front wheel wells but I use 2wd a lot even in the mud. I learned to drive offroad in 2wd trucks and 2wd 4 wheelers as a kid so I use 2wd mostly offroad unless I need to crawl very slowly or am in really bad deep mud.

whitejk... interested in your setup. Lift, wheel size, how many wheelspacers you're using and if it rubs, etc...

Aev 3.5" with 37" MTRs and teraflex 1.25" spacers. No rubbing as daily driver and no rubbing with uncut fenders and mild off-roading. No rock rails but have the old rails waiting for primer and paint. No rubbing when on for test bit.

I may space the stock rubi wheels put even more with either 1.5" or 1.75" spacers.

Thx for the info. Looks great.

Do you know what the aev lift actually netted you? I put a metalcloack 2.5 that netted just over 3 and I'm planning on 37's. So you're setup is going to be pretty close to mine, + 1" or so. I'm deciding on rims still, which is where this line of questioning is coming from. The stock rims are sharp, but bs'ing is obviously a big factor. You're netting 4.75" bs on those and clearing so that's good news. Thanks.

I actually just lowered my jeep back down. Went from 3.5->4.5->3.5. Sans the heavy ass bumpers, I'm netting almost an additional 1" over what is advertised.
