So anybody got some insight on these fenders? Anybody know what there made out of? Still got a lot of reasearch to do on these things but thought I ask if anybody ever ran them.

they are fairly new in my eyes.. but ive been off playin marine for the last 9 months.. finally gettin around to using the internet again..

but they seem legit.. they are rubber (not sure what exactly) but at the same time.. dont offer the same protection that real tube fenders would

I'm a steel tube fender guy; love my Genright G3 tube fenders. However, the people that run those MCE flatties sure seem to like them. They're inexpensive and relatively easy to install. I don't think I've heard anything bad about them from the people running them. PM Jerry Bransford, he ran a set on his '97 TJ. He did an extensive write-up on the install. He could give you any information you might need. Good luck, and pics are required if you get them!!

They are ABS plastic the same stuff they make football helmets out of. Love mine, I got my lites from them too.


A few shots at various points in the Jeeps life they flex real nice too if you rub on stuff.

Yep you have to cut the front and top off of the factory fender, you leave a lip about 2 inches wide to attach the new fender to.

The lights are an option you have to order so they can drill the holes for and I'm sure if you ask Mike will send you stickers.

By flared he means that they cover the whole tire ie wider, as they are they cover about half of my 11.50 and in some states that's a no-no.

Thank you guys for the interest and replies.


As DevilDog kindly pointed out, they are made of ABS plastic. The plastic is 100% virgin (highest grade) with a proprietary UV/weather blocker "molded in" as part of the manufacturing process. (If you do some research, the official term for the UV blocker molded in is called a "cap") They are 100 percent made in America starting with the base material stock coming from a mill in the US.

Also as pointed out, we currently only offer the fenders in a regular width, which is only as wide as the OE fender without the OE flare attached.




This does leave the tire sticking out, whether that is a good thing or bad thing is up to you. It has been a very long time coming but we are currently making some progress on a wide fender for those who wish to cover the tires such as the OE flare would, and more coverage optional. The current fenders are not street legal in our home state, and although we drive our personal Jeeps almost daily and have yet to be hassled (knock on wood), we would like the option to be street legal.



For installation, they do require cutting of the OE fender. Basically the front, top, and part of the back edge of the wheel well gets trimmed off and our fenders go over the trimmed area. Here is a quick picture I have handy of a YJ, but the TJ is similar:




We do provide instructions as well as a cutting template, although in reality the cuts do not need to be extremely accurate. If anyone would like to see a copy of the instructions send me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail you a copy.



Thanks,


Mike

I liked my MCE fenders so well that I am about to install my second set on my new to me Rubicon. See my previous thread on installing my first set at http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/new-...ler-43596.html

Mike, as a favor to a friend, I am awaiting a set of damaged fenders from him to swap for my undamaged fenders before I cut them up. Then I will install the new fenders.
