Hurt the jeep on the way to work.

Ok guys I need some help. Was driving to work today and slid across the high way in to a guardrail. Need a new bumper, left fender, and left tail light. Also the left hood latch. My question is I already know what new bumper I want, but I'm trying to decide on tube fenders or oem fenders. What do you guys think. I seen that has some tube fenders in powder coated black that I like, but it says that the inner fender needs to be moded, but it dosent say what or how.

I would base it on how much off roading you do.If it is a lot go with the tube fenders if not just replace the OEM one.You could base it on price also are the tube fenders going to be close to the one OEM fender by the time you have a body shop paint to match???If you go with the tube fenders and plan to run them in black without painting to match the factory color, the inner fender that has to be cut or tapped in would have to be primed and painted black after the modding to keep rust from starting.
I like for it to shine even thought it is muddy most of the time!
