Red face JKU flares

What’s the closest to factory look flares that are about 1” to 1.5” wider?

Trolled every site I can think of I’m not really finding anything that I want.

Hoping to get a slightly wider stance but maintain the factory type look. Maybe there’s something I’m not aware of or that’s not overly common I should look at?

As Dimo mentioned, Uneek4x4 have their own spacers. I've had a set on mine and they do the job but I found that they let the flares droop a little as they are only a length of foam.

It's not a problem and not a criticism of them as they do as advertised but I just didn't like the look of having the ends of the flares resting on my bulbar.

If this doesn't bother you, then they will do what you want for a lot cheaper than replacing the whole flare.

The expensive way is to buy from Double Black Off Road. They look stock but are 2" wider than standard.

I was able to add about 1.5" to my flares with some rubber flare extensions. They don't stick out like a sore thumb, and give me the clearance to be legal. Couldn't find a decent wrangler pic with a quick search, but this is the idea. They bolted right to the underside of my flares. Can have a look and see what you think.

Jeep Konnection have a set of aftermarket flares that fit over the top of stock flares and they can be painted.

If you want to do a little internet searching, Jeep actually have a set of wider and higher stock flares to suit the JKU but they're only in the US.

Sbroffroad has some nice looking fender flares also, though I'm not sure if they have factory-style ones.

Checked them out. They looked big. Mopar high lift flares the same. Big. Everything with full coverage to the front bar just looked massive and a turn off.

Ended up ordering Rampage rivet flares. 1Ē wider apparently. And 1.5Ē higher. Right dimensions for me and a I should be able to remove my bump stop pads. See how I feel once theyíre on I guess. Not quite factory look but they donít do a smooth version without the recesses for bolting on. If I donít like them once in Iíll just use them as a mold and make my own fibreglass ones.

Thanks for the help fellas
