fender advise.

well, i have a smitty, src tube bumper and i hit a tree while going down a steep down hill decent on a muddy hill.. and the bumper went right into my fender. i have a new replacment bumper. and i cannot find any tj drivers fenders. well for under a hundred bucks.

should i try to flatten the top piece of fender and cut the front fenders? or do tube fenders? or still try to find replacement fender and leave it? or get a replacement fender and cut it to minimize tire rub. (which is minor for me right now) its mainly a cosmetic thing.

what are some ideas.. id be willing to buy something you guys may have laying around

I vote for a new set of flat fenders and a heavy duty bumper.

Have seen that same thing happen to several Jeeps running that same bumper. Any hit at all sends the tube into the fender. A horrible design if you actually wheel your Jeep.
Still bummed that happened to your Jeep though. I would go back with a flat fender of your choice. Metalcloak, genright.
