Wow, those are sharp looking wheels! Tubeless tires I suspect. I can't tell if you're running a fork brace or not. If not, consider getting a Norman Hyde TX "Fender Mount" which sits above the fender, not underneath it like the stock bit. This way you can drop your fender down as close as you like with longer hardware and you have a cool looking fork brace in the bargain.

As pointed out, the SE lowers is not the way to go.

its a fact that the base + SE lowers are different as i was shopping for upgraded calipers, not as many options due to different mounting
