Gonna have to ditch the Nemesis front flares - they are holding up articulation 😢

Got a set of junkyard Rubicon fronts without lights and ordered the Quake Fender Chop Kit with sequential turns. Should be tits once it’s on.

To make the front and rear match I’m going with Bulletliner bed liner. About $75 per fender and they will all be the same UV protected black bedliner color. Much more durable than paint or powdercoat and no need for PPF. Closest thing to the hard anodize on there now that won’t easily scratch but will match front to back on the fenders.

Considered paint briefly but quickly decided against it as these will be the first things to get beat up and the rest of the Jeep is covered in PPF.

Actually like the way it looks with the chopped front and rear Rubi fenders wayyyy better than the Nemesis that I returned.

What do you guys think? I gained almost 3” of tire clearance in the front and another inch in the rear which I was able to chop more body off

Looks like shit!!

Lol - looks great, are you going to try to paint match or do something cosmetic at some point?

Probably not the fenders. They kinda match since the whole theme of the Jeep is Granite Crystal and Black... plus I’m sure they are going to get scratched up on the rocks anyway so why waste more money on paint.

If I were to do anything I would have them professionally done with black UV resistant bedliner

I may eventually do something else with the corner guards as they as are already fading pretty bad, but gonna leave it for now. Probably go paint to match or a close powder coat (Wizard Black)

Not even those inner fenders in the rear?
Yes those are definitely getting painted ASAP to match the fronts - hate how that looks right now.

Good call
