The only problem I like how the stock fender look, and I have a safari snorkel and I want to get an arb bulbar, which are all made to fit with stock fenders. So I want to reenforce the stock Mounts

If they are mounted stronger, they will bend the tub when you run into stuff... I'd rather replace a flare than sheet metal....

Thet didn't fall from hitting a tree they fell because I gun'ed it through water and the clips did not hold. In fact the side I hit a tree with is fine.

Well, I know for a fact that if you hit the ground with a Bushwacker flattie, (which are mounted much more securely than the stockers) you will dent the tub....
And gunning it through the water is a great way to hydrolock your engine.
