Flat Fenders

Like most jeeps i have alot of rust on my front right fender. It has rotted through and i have fixed it with bondo as best as i could but it still doesn't look good. Any thoughts on flat fenders like these

They are Smittybilt XRC Armor Tube Fenders

Those seem to be popular and cheaper than other fenders. The look has become very popular and you can fit bigger tires.

I'm not a fan of anything Smittybilt, personally, but they seem to be popular and do the job well. I have Genright G3 tube fenders and I love them, but they're almost twice as expensive as the Smittybilts. I think there are a number of people here on the forum running the Smittybilt tube fenders and I think they like them for the most part.

If you're gonna go with tube fenders, do it right the first time and don't buy the Smittybuilts. I've got some Metalcloak arched tube fenders. Those are a bit expensive, but it's better than cutting up your fenders for the Smittybuilts and finding that they're crap. If you don't wanna spend that much, Genright would be the way to go.

The metalcloaks are nice and I think they look sick as hell, BUT others will say they look terrible and have their own opinions. Make sure you look around first because the look of 'em is definitely unique.

I personally like the flattie MCE fenders that are bendable and easily replaceable.

I'm one of them.......I hate the Metalcloaks. I can't stand the way they look. Not bashing on people who like them, just my opinion, that's why I went with the Genrights. The Metalcloak lovers might hate the Genrights, and that's cool too. That's why there's more than one company producing tube fenders.
