Help with tube fenders?!

So I decided to cheap out and buy BlueTorch Fabs DIY kit. Let me tell you they're a joke, their piece of shit kit was all jacked up. Now I regret it and will be buying new ones, but this time i need them to have the inner fender with them. So since metalcloak doesn't offer any deals at all I'm looking for other options that include inner fenders that won't cost me $650. Thanks for any help and insight.

I've never heard of BTF putting out bad products. Sorry to hear that. I've always read that they had a pretty solid reputation. But I'd take a look at Rokmen, TNT Customs, Sniper Fab, Genright, Poison Spyder, AtoZ Fab. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few though. It might be hard to keep it under $650 if you want inner fenders.

Yeah the BTF kit was all messed up. The tubes was cut off about 1/2" short on one side and 3/4" on the other. Wasn't too happy to have to fill in that much weld.

Not when they come as a kit to weld together, no cutting involved. And I can't cut them longer they were too short.

I doubt they will honestly I've already welded them up and filled the gap with scrap.

But yeah they dont make them for YJ's but I dont know what the difference are between them. Maybe some fab work will do the charm.

Whats wrong.with the tube fenders now? It sounds like you filled it and everything.

ya theyre fine just don't like the way they turned out. I didn't finish everything on them like grinding down the welds and so on. They look like I paid $150 for them when I was expecting them to look like they cost a grand. So a lot of it is me being too picky and anal.
