Flat tube fenders

Definitely want to put some tube fenders up front. I've only really seen Smittybilts and Pure Jeeps, I'd like to see what everyone else has!!

Metalcloaks, easily the best brand out there. Pretty expensive but one of the only ones that is directly bolt on without any alterations to the hood

I heard about those and briefly looked online and they seemed a little over my head. You said they bolt on, so could I order them online and put them on myself? (I'm not a full time mechanic but I know my way around a jeep)

I actually almost pulled the trigger on those with the 3in flare. How hard was it for you to put those on? Or did you take it to a shop?

If you can put the factory fenders on, you could put these on. And their the only ones that include the inner liners with the price, so overall they are typically cheaper than other brands

Those are the no flare option and no i didnt take it to a shop...i was able to take care of them start to finish in about 3 hours. I kinda took my time though while i made sure everything was lined up, didnt over cut, etc. It was about an hour and a half for the first side, an hour for the other side since i got the hang of it, and then 30 minutes cleanup.

The only complaint i have about the smittys is the powdercoat on them leaves some to be desired...i was going to get them redone but one day i just repainted them and it worked out great so i'll just keep on that until i decide on another project lol.

Metalcloaks and TNTs are bolt-on, fairly easy to do. You can sell your flares for some money back, too!

Talking

Metal cloaks may be the best bolt on and have the best price but gen rights hyline fenders are better then metalcloak. They look much better (IMO) I can stand on them just like metal cloak does in their video and they actually open the wheel well up a little more too. The part that mounts to the jeep body up front by the radiator/front grill is much larger then any of the other fenders I've seen too which I would think would help with load displacement too if you're ever leaning on your fender. Love the perforated opening too looks really sweet (again IMO) they're costly but if u want the best u gotta pay for it. Metal cloaks (imo) r the next best option if u wanna save a lil money. on a 5.5 in lift with 35" tires i have 13" from the top of my tire to the bottom of the tube not bad

My browser reloaded after i posted, and your post came up haha, I am thoroughly impressed with those fenders though. But I'm already pushing my budget with the hefty MC price tag lol
