Jerry did you put these on your new jeep yet?

Only thing I am worried about at least here in NH is passing inspection, I really like them

I'm ready to but not yet. I even have the side markers inset into the new fenders, but a friend wants to swap some crinkled up fenders for my undamaged front fenders since I'll be cutting them up anyway. I'm waiting for his fenders but he better hurry up as I'm anxious to install them.

One of my club members installed these on her jeep and so far so good, but had not really been trail tested yet. They also had an issue with the hood latch. I am still on the fence about these vs. steel.

X2, how can there be an issue with the latch? The latch doesn't change and the MCE fender still uses the OE latch mounting bracket.

Hmm. I didnt have any issues with the latch coming off. The whole installation was actually pretty straight forward.

I hear ya. I grenaded my passenger hood latch when I had to pull them to install my Genright tube fenders. Once I KNEW it wasn't going to come off intact, I just destroyed it, knowing I could order one from eBay for less than $20 shipped.

my wife says "that's retarded, you don't need that"....I guess this will be one of those ask for forgiveness instead of permission things. We'll see how much rubbing action I get with my 31's and no lift, and go from there.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the replies and the pics, the Jeeps look awesome. Sorry for being away form the board for a while, there are just not enough days in the weeks sometimes! We really appreciate your business and enthusiasm for our product.

We have been busy working on an attachable flare which matches the design, as well as CJ versions. (The YJ version came out early this summer). Since the end of July, the fenders have also been using UV protected material, so they don't require paint or any special protection from the elements.

But we were also lucky enough to be able to take a few really fun Jeepin' trips:




























Thanks again, and feel free to post up, pm, or email me (modernclassicent@gmail.com)with any questions or comments.


Thanks,

Mike

They cover out right? They stick out. How much more tire can I cram under there with these?

What do you mean? As of right now there are no flares on these, so they will not cover the width of most any tire. So if your state laws require tire converage, you need to take that into consideration.

Just ordered a set after taking awhile to decide on what way to go with my fender change. I am shopping for my light replacements now. Gonna go LED.

Also... I will be going HID with the headlights soon. Can anyone suggest some decent quality headlight housings?

Decisions decisions! I love the new width, 3.5 is great but the 6" holds more beer cans! I must choose wisely! Thanks for the updated pics Mike! Now I won't be able to sleep! LOL! Gonna place an order soon.

Finally got my MCE fenders installed on the replacement '04 Wrangler and I think it looks really bitchin' with them. A nice side-benefit of having a black Jeep this time around over my previous red Wrangler is I didn't have to paint the new fenders!

Before...




After...





I used the same JK style front turn signals and LED side marker lights as before and described back on page one of this thread. They work well, look good, and are easier to install than some other alternatives. The TJ front turn signal bulb holders mount in the JK enclosures without modification and the LED side marker lights are a simple two-wire connection that doesn't require any tricky wiring or diodes to make work.

Here are a few more details not covered way back on page one of this thread…

The template MCE provides makes for an easy error-free installation. I used a white grease pencil to trace around the template to use as a guide for the saber saw.




Cut three slots into the front grill holes for the turn signals to allow the JK enclosures to slip in. They have three ribs that run down the side that the slots are needed for. Cut the slots so you insert the enclosure rotated 15 to 20 degrees from being straight. With the additional cut you make into each of the three ribs, as shown below, this allows you to lock the JK turn signal enclosure to the grill by rotating it back 15-20 degrees until it is straight. Done properly, the JK turn signals will be tight and locked into the grill so they can’t come out unless you rotate them back the other way to unlock them.




Finally, here is how I tucked the wiring up and out of the way using plastic wire loom, zip ties, and adhesive cable retainers. One last thing… I discovered there is no need to drill a hole through the back of the grill area into the JK turn signal enclosure to pass the turn signal wiring connector into it. There is a small opening in the back that is just barely big enough to pass it through. You do have to disconnect the plastic electrical connector just behind the turn signal bulb enclosure. Once disconnected, you can pass that connector through and into the grill area where the JK enclosure sits and then reconnect the bulb holder connector back to the wiring harness. This is easier done than described.



All in all it turned out great and I really like the new look of the Jeep. Looks tough but more importantly, the fenders are functional in that they flex instead of bend, not to mention their weight savings as a nice side benefit.
