Bushwacker Fender Flares on WK2?

Is anyone running the Bushwacker fender flares on their WK2? I'm considering buying them to gain some extra tire coverage.

My current setup is ProComp 7036 18x9 wheels with a "0" offset, 275/65 18 duratrac's, and the RRO 2.5 lift kit.

I had to trim a very small portion of my front factory fender flares on the very front of the wheel well since the tires barely rubbed when I turned the wheel. Anyone else had that issue?

Also, does anyone know if I put these flares on, are they as wide as the factory? Like do they travel down into the wheel well also as much as the factory flares or do they just extend straight out? I don't want to have to cut on these after I spend $500 for them, so curious if my tire coverage will be better.

I like the look but wish they would offer an option with or without the fake bolt heads. I've seen a couple members with them on, they look mean.

Same tires, but with a OME spring/Bilstein strut lift. Running factory 2013 TrailHawk wheels - no rub.

Wish the bushwackers didn't have the pocket cut-outs. The fake rivets look a little too fake.

You won't gain any clearance in the well and they stick out about 2" from the fender at the bottom, then bevel inward towards the top. They bolt up to the same holes the factory flares mount to and follow the body line on the fender for the shape. In a way they're just bigger versions of the factory ones.

I was going to have the bolt areas (pockets) filled in to give it a smooth look. I wasn't a big fan of the fake bolts either.

I've got a set still in the box that I never installed if anyone is interested. I paid $280 for them and would sell them at that price. The box has a little bit of water damage, but it's still sturdy and the parts are in the plastic and fine.
