Cloaks done

Finished up the Arched metal cloak fender install on my Dad's TJ. Went a little different and had the fenders painted to match the rig then hit the flairs with black hammered finish paint.

That looks awesome,

I have the overlines for my jeep been sitting in the living room.

Personally I think your dads jeep would look better if you painted the access panels either the blue or the hammered finish. Thats what I am going to do anyway,going to have my buddy spay one side of the panels flame red and the other side with the finish on the Fenders/flares.That way I can choose either way.

Jeep looks killer though. Thanks for posting it.

We debated painting the access panels but he likes the raw so that/s what we used. though we did mount them recessed. One day we might make up louvered type panels to keep the heat down, down the road

Those looks slick! I havent seen many flatties that I like but this setup is giving me a chubby lol. What do you do for front turn signals, or is this a trail only rig?

I wish I would have gone with the arched instead of the over lines, but I'm still happy either way. They look awesome painted the same as the jeep.

How tough was the install? Did it take quite some time? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on these soon

the fenders them selves are cake its all the stupid crap under the hood you need to remount that takes the time. total time over 3 days about 7 hours. thats pulling off the old stuff setting the new flairs and addressing mounting everything back up.

What head lights are those I'm very interested in them.

they are from Chevys of the 40s, kinda a hot rod/classic car mail order company

they have 2 LED rings. we set the inner ring to come on with the fog light switch and the outer as turns. They come in amber or clear LEDs and are h4 bulbs



few of the options
Chevs of the 40s: AUT6001C - HEADLIGHT - 7" W/ HALOGEN BULB & LED PARK LIGHTS/ TURN SIGNAL

Chevs of the 40s: 31379 - 7" H4 HEADLIGHT WITH LED SIDES FOR RUNNING AND TURN SIGNALS - WHITE

Chevs of the 40s: 31378 - 7" H4 HEADLIGHT WITH LED SIDES FOR RUNNING AND TURN SIGNALS - AMBER

Very Nice. I did a lot of research on fenders and I am also going with the Overline. I will be doing a 3" lift with gobs of travel (Savvy) to keep my center of gravity down and Metal Cloak are the best in my eyes. They thought of everything and no cutting. Just bolt in. Nice work with the 2 tone paint. Although you should Plasti Dip the insides
