Default Pic request and information fender flares

Would like to know if anyone on here as the standard front fender flares OE type on and also the larger bushwacker type rivet style back wheel arch fender flares on?

On my 4x2 I may be thinking of getting wider rear tyres and wider rear fender flares for the back but standard OE size up front flares.

Anyone done this?

I know you asked if anyone had done this but are you also asking if it will look right? I know when I ordered my bushwackers there was one odd size that was mistakenly placed in my order. It was obviously smaller but it was never installed so I couldn't say how it would have looked. Are you wanting to go .5" in the front and 1.75" in the back or 1.75" and 2.25"? I think the latter wouldn't be to obvious. Hope this helps.

Yeah, your idea seems to be better somewhat. As I was thinking about the standard looking OE Mopar ones up front and a larger pocket rivet style in the back. But the idea of have a smaller pocket style rivet up front and a larger pocket size in back sounds good too.

Its just my opinion, but having the OEM slick flares in the front and rivets on the back would be a little odd. The Bushwackers are a totally different shape and it would be noticeably different. However, if you matched the paint on front and back flares, it would minimize the contrast or difference.
