If ya\' can\'t beat \'em join \'em (new tires)

Well, just like Lemmings I had to follow everyone else. After what seems eternity I have been "old School" and gone with what always worked. My beloved Ground Hawgs. Through years of stubbornness and being hard headed, I have owned these tires in different sizes and on several jeeps. I have gotten the wildest of looks while rock crawling. Comments like " he's got hawgs hehehe" , and " Do you really run those tires on the trail? " How 'bout this one from Elusive " You probably wouldn't of had to winch that spot if you were running some different tires"..
I have put up with these jibes and stabs from friends and fellow jeepers for long enough. Call me weak!!!!!!!!!
Now I guess "old school" is out the window and "new school" is in session. I finally broke down and bought a set of 39.5 Boggers. They are used, but still have lots (probably 100 miles)(read bad tire life expectancy) of tread left. Now, the decision is how bad I have to hack my semi-pristine body up. I am going to run some sort of fender flare, but not sure which will give me more clearance. Anyone know which one of the TJ or YJ fenders have more room to cut the body? I am also taking my headers and side pipes off. This will allow the front tires more room to flex and make my jeep's sides available to some serious rocker protectors.
Anyway here is the poser shot. Not ready for the trails yet. Gotta hack the body first.....

Can you get a set of TJ flairs just to set up for a mock up to see if they will give you enough room?

Ricky looks good bud. I just cant believe you gave in though.

Any way DONT do TJ flares. I think they look like $hit unless you do it how www.samsoffroad.com did theres. The lines of a TJ and a CJ just dont even come close.

Anyway I still cant believe you gave in.

wow.. that tub is WAY too nice to carve up.. I think you'd better sell me those boggers...
actually... I just got me a set of 37 MTR's for "street" tires..
I have seen tj flares look good on cj's... yj flares dont give any more room at all...
