    Very cool!
    Is there are story around the front fender flares, as in do they serve a purpose being rounded, or did you just want a change?

    Of course there is. When I originally built my Jeep, I simply replaced the front axle with a straight gasser style with a 4 inch drop from Speedway Motors. But last year, I did it right and installed a Chris Alsten coil over with rack and pinion steering. This gave me the opportunity to move the wheels forward 3 inches. That is why there is the filler piece on the front fender. For flares, I just got some CJ rear ones and put them on the front. I was already using CJ rear flares, but replaced those with wider ones to completely cover the rear tires. I always believed that since tires are round, the flares should also be round.
