Cherokee fenders:Cutouts vs Glass Prerunner

I have a 97 cherokee sport that i would like to put a small (3-4") lift on and some 32 or 33" tires, I would like to have as much up-travel as possible while still keeping it low (its gonna be a high-speed dune buggy type jeep) so i was considering some high clearance fenders. The choices i had were between some fiberglass prerunner-style flares (from Rusty's Offroad or Polyperformance) or some cut out flares (from Rusty's or Bushwacker). I have heard alot of bad stuff about the bushwacker but was wondering if the rusty's flares were any better.

I am kind of leaning towards the fiberglass prerunner fenders because 1 of my fenders is smashed a little and need to be replaced, but i would like to know if any one has anything bad to say about these, or if they work well.

Most of the guys in jeepspeed run 6 inch kits, for more travel, i say go with a six. I have a four inch for the desert and it doesnt have enough travel. Not long enough shocks either

how big of tires are you running and are you running high clearance fenders

im want it to have decent road manners(its my daily driver) and i don't want to have to replace the entire drivetrain because of the added stress. im planning on putting a 9" to take the place of the shitty dana 35, but i think i could mildly build the 30(truss maybe cromo shafts if i break the stockers) and it will be fine
