100% Bolt On Tube Flare / Fender

Is Warrior the only Company that makes a 100% Bolt On Tube Flare with no Cutting Involved?

Do you have a link to a tube fender that can be installed without cutting or removing the OE fender? I don't need one since I run the flexible MCE flattie-style ABS fenders but I just can't figure out how a tube fender can be installed without removing or cutting something.

Be wary of one thing... steel tube finders are so strong and without give that if you smack one into a tree, rock, etc. the odds are very good it will wrinkle the tub enough that the doors may not open/close properly afterwards. In fact, on the rock crawling trails I enjoy, that's a common problem.

Here's the Tube Flare: Warrior Products - Jeep - Tube Flares | Warrior Products

I have the Smittybilt Rear Tubes, but their Version for the Front Requires Cutting.

I'm Down for Flares or Fenders, as Long as there isn't any Cutting.

But what am I Missing that I can't See why a Company can't make a 100% Bolt On Tube Fender? Why do you have to Cut & Re-use the OE Fender? Why not just make a whole New Bolt On one?

MCE got a good price and I would go with them over others.

Even MCE's require some cutting. But the fact a little metal cutting is involved should not rule out an otherwise good easily installed product. A sawzall, hacksaw, saber saw, etc. will make short work of the minor amount of cutting needed.

Why not get something that gives a little when you bump something like a rock or a tree on the trails? Those tube fenders flares are the same as the flat fender flares. You slam that against a tree your tube flares and your fenders are going to bend. Or you could go by getting something that is not as wide. The ABS plastic will bend and give a little so you can make some tight squeezes.

I Refuse to Use Optima. I've had nothing but Problems with them, even back when they were "Good".
