Man Rugged did great, those fenders will be the go to I bet. I wish I would have gotten body colored fenders now. This just begs for 37s on the rubicons now!

I want to know about that Snorkel. Looks really clean. Sitting on the front passenger seat it appears to be attachments for it to make it higher when needed. But for daily use, that side exit look is really sharp. Anyone got links yet? :)

Finally! Someone with a designer brain that kept the look of the original fenders.

I don't understand why everyone is making these crazy futuristic looking fenders when the JL design is actually more smooth / free flowing than any jeep thus far!

Very nice display! Interesting seeing the tailight guards offered as well. I know it's tricky to create because of the blind spot monitoring system being integrated.

I’ll have to admit, normally not a fan of Rugged Ridge products for the JL, they all look like an after thought with odd bumper bolt ones etc.

However, pretty much everything they are showing at SEMA is excellent! Not only do I like the Front bumper, snorkel and fenders, they are among my favorite I have seen so far. I love the fenders and that is the only snorkel I have seen that I would actually use. Bumper wise, I love the design. Easily in top two. Now to choose betwe

Do you think a non-lifted Rubicon with these fenders could handle 37s? Maybe small 37s like KO2?

I had that exact turn signal/fender support in my mind and was trying to think of how I could make them. Thank you Rugged Ridge for making these. I have never thought about buying any of your products in the past (they were fugly). Now it looks like most of my purchases will be going toward these new parts. Way to go on this one.

What do you all think of their rock sliders with protruding steps in these photos?

I'm digging that modular snorkel.
I'm still undecided on the fenders; they look good, but hinges on the JL already get rock chips with the factory fenders.
