If you 'wheel your rig, you're going to get dirty. It's not that you'll be covered with mud from head to toe (although it is a common occurrence), but most likely, you will walk away with at least a few specks of mud on your clothing. We've even found that the hefty 37-inch meats on our project TJ tend to splash a good bit, even when on the pavement, making us no strangers to walking into work with a few remnants of road grime or splash from the gutter on our sleeves. For a long time, we simply dealt with this fact as a circumstance of owning and driving a 4x4 with big tires. After looking at the wimpy factory flares day after day, however, and realizing that the majority of road spray swept right over the 3 inches or so of flare coverage, we were fairly certain a remedy existed.
