I thought the MetalCLoak fenders were a complete fender with inner fender and didn't require any cutting on the stock fender.

The metalcloak fenders do not require you to cut your fender. They should be bolt on from what I understand in their instructions. I was refering to all the other tube fenders besides metalcloak.

This is false. ALL is a big statement. Metal Cloaks supplies you with a full replacement inner fender and flare. This is awesome because stock fenders are really easy to sell. Why are they easy to sell? cause so many people bash in their front fenders offroading or in crashes. So those few extra hundred they cost you can easily get back.

Hadn't thought about selling the stock ones.... good idea.
Good way to make up the difference in cost.
I just happen to be driving through Rancho Cordova (where MetalCLoak is located) tomorrow.... have to make it a point to stop by.

It's not going to get any discount but mention CountryBoyJeep on Wrangler forum referred you to them. They have awesome customer service so I'm sure they can answer every question you have. Post on this thread after you talk to them to let us know. Best of luck

Bushwackerfactoryoutlet.com

You can get any bushwacker for extremely cheap. I had to get 2 front pocket style fenders for mine after I broke them. They usually cost about 250 and I got them for 180 plus shipping. Best deal I have found on fenders period

Clearance is not what I'm looking for. Its Cleanliness down the sides!

6" bushwacker pocket style flares are great at keeping it clean.

I just got the Bushwacker pocket flares. 3" over stock I think. The front fit fine but the rears didn't cover the old flares line. Now I have a white line where the grit scratched between the body an old flare. And I was short some hardware.

I am kinda found of the factory look. Guess I am still in the protective mode of my Wrangler. I'm sure for the price these are not as tough as the flats or the steel's but I don't plan on bouncing off any trees in the near future!! LOL... Keeping spray off the sides while running down sloppy wet roads are my main concern...
Thanks
I deal with the spray up the side of my Jeep. 7" flares just look goofy.
