Here's a few of mine over the last 7 years. I went straight from stock to 37's. With the AEV kit I ran the stock flares, but they rubbed too hard and I wanted to free up some up-travel. I cut them initially, but I picked up a set of the Smittybilt flairs second-hand and ran those until I had the funds for the EVO armor. Last pic is how she sits now, eventually the fronts will have a very narrow flair (more of a rub-rail) and powder coated to match.
For those looking into the Smittybilt flares, don't do it. Not only did they rust, which is funny cause I live in AZ, but they have enough give to fold up and catch, which results in push and pull damage to the body. One of my worst mods.
