Fitting under stock fenders

Hey guys, I have decided to go with the 38" MTR for my jk unlimited rubicon. Now I know most of you have installed aftermarket fender flares to help fit the larger tire. However after doing quite a bit of looking I still prefer the look of the stock fenders and I would like to do anything to keep them. (I would also not like to cut them up to look like they are paper thin)

My question is would I be able to some how fit these tires under a 4" teraflex lift? I'm not trying to get major articulation here I just don't want to worry about going over speed bumps and occasional wheeling. If not I suppose I am stuck with getting a 5-6" lift?

any recommendations would be great

With enough bump, and the limited up travel that goes with it, you can run 37's and stock flairs on several company's 3-3.5 inch kits. Depending how much the kit does or does not push the axles out you may need to trim the rear pinch seam.

The worst case scenario = you have the opportunity to buy new fenders after you go wheeling.

Saw those on a few rigs at EJS. Nice effort by Mopar.

The fenders are awesome and so is the grill. I have been trying to find install instructions on the fenders to see how the inner liners are installed. I would ditch my BW flat fenders for those if the liners are included and like stock.

Those new mopar fenders look to be exactly what you're looking for.

I'm looking at high clearance fenders right now as well and may be interested in these. Anyone have any more info? Release date? Price? Are they wider than stock? Do they include inner fenders or work with the stock inner fenders?
