Highline Fenders?

So, I have decided that for my jeep I want some highline fenders. But I don't know what all there is for brands out there. So far the two I've run across are AEV and Metalcloak. Anyone know of any other brands?

Ya I figured there would be, but I'm new to jeeps, so I don't really know any brands or anything like that. Thanks for the info.

MetalCloak hands down but I could never afford $1000 front fender setup so I just trimmed my stock flares for an extra inch or 2

I think you mean rokmen. They make very nice stuff. Some highline kits are diy finish work though and not just a simple bolt on deal. You will also need to relocate some things under the hood with some kits as well. Aev has a nice clean factory look where as metal cloak, rokmen, etc have a wicked, badass, rock crawler look . Be sure to really research what the highline kits all require and what you are capable of doing yourself, or having another do for you.

I originally liked the AEV the most, but the more I look at them, the more I like the Metalcloak fenders. So those will probably be the ones I go with. On the rear I think i'm going to go with poison spyder crusher corners (link below) and then fab up my own fender flares to weld on as I don't like the ones they can come with. I thought about trimming my stock fenders, but I'm not against spending money if it's going to look and function good.

With minor fab skills you can do the DIY fender lift for low to no cost. I've done the rear, but I still need to find time to do the front. I bought an intake so I wouldn't have to deal with that issue. Now my only issue is finding / fab'ing a washer fluid bottle to fit. I gained 2.75" at the minimum point in the rear so I could have a 5.5" larger tire and still have the same clearance. I'm going to shoot for a similar height on the front. That would allow me to go from 31s to 37s with only a 0.5" bump stop extension (but I'm doing 35s)
