I'm going with GenRight 4" flair aluminum tubes in front, but I don't know what to do in the back. I need to cut because I'll be running 35's with a two inch SL and 1.25" BL. I'd like the tube type in the back but I don't want the expense and weight of full corner guards and I'm not sure if I can just bolt them on.

ccfabs.com if you are looking for simple tube fenders. You can't beat the price...$500 for front and rears! If you are looking for inner fenders or high lines then go metalcloak, genright or PS.

X2 on the DeFenders by Poison Spyder. They are super heavy though so if thats an issue go with the aluminum. If price is an option and your going for more for looks (not that they won't take some abuse) the Smittybilts above are a good option. BTF builders kit is good if your looking to weld/fab a bit yourself.

Rears from Pure Jeep.

Front from Pure Jeep.


You asked for recommendations and since everyone else has pointed out the obvious choices of great products, here is another. Interested in pricing to your door let me know (PS, PJ). Have a blessed and prosperous day!

Hey another Trektop NX owner

I have MCEs and they have been perfect for me for close to 3 years now. I like those Poison Spyder Defenders too

I noticed you have 2" LEDs in the front grill. Did you wire those in parallel with the fender LEDs? How difficult was the install?

Are you going to Hi-Line the front? I'm in a similar situation. I have a 2" OME lift and 35's. With the front stock fenders I need close to 4" of bumptop to keep the tires from hitting the fenders. I'm getting ready to install the standard Genright tube fenders and I not expecting any real clearance gains.

I've changed my mind after further review of this thread. Looked up MCE flexible flat fenders and they are for me! I like the bend-don't-break idea out here where I wheel almost exclusively around rocks, which will win in a smash fight. To quote an email they responded to, "The fenders can be had individually, but we do have a lifetime warranty against cracking to the original buyer. This material is also very workable. If you happen to really lay into it and put a crease in the material, a little heat and reverse pressure will make it look right again. For an example, last spring when I flopped my TJ, the front fender got a minor crease in it. I held it over the campfire later and then pushed it back into shape."

They look sharp and about half the price of metal tube fenders.

I would email or call Genright. I think you will gain two tire sizes with the standard fenders.
