Thanks all for the kind words and postings. DerekM thanks for stopping by the booth at EJS, it's nice to meet Jeepers from the board(s) and put names with faces. Northwest 4x4 (Nick) thanks and see ya on the trail!



So here's the info on the new flared fenders:

We are still moving along, end of next week or perhaps the beginning of the following week we'll start shipping the 3.5's!


We have made some other improvements and are calling it somewhat of a "generation 2" fender. As those of you who have been following us here and on facebook know it has taken a (painfully) long time to get this finally done. We very much appreciate the support and questions/comments we have gotten along the way. Your voices and requests are heard by us and this has forced us to uncover every piece of technology and information out there to truly bring a cutting-edge-of-technology product to the Jeep aftermarket.


Here are some highlights and specs:



- 1-piece design
- Light weight
- UV stable
- Attaches to trimmed OE fender
- Made of extremely durable TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin) material – you can drive over one! ABS has done well and continues to do outstandingly well on our original "narrow" fender. But upon discovering TPO and it's way of forming, we knew we had to use it on the new fender!
- Paintable
- LIFETIME WARRANTY against cracking for the original purchaser!
- Price will be $399 for the pair








We were going to go with the high-gloss finish material, however at the last minute we decided to switch to a very slight texture, it gives it more of a low-gloss look.







Questions and comments are always welcomed.


Thanks,




Mike

Good call on the textured look! I like that much better.

I'm hoping to be an owner of the 1st run of 6" versions!

You already have them on the rear, just gotta trim them to match ! I took about an inch and a half off the factory flare, just enough so that the bolts in the fender well can't be seen... I'm sure that isn't news to you but I have had a lot of compliments on how my rear flares match the front flattys better... It's worth a shot!

Yup lol already did it. Probably did it about a month after I installed the MCEs. The MCEs looked funny when the rears weren't trimmed.

Lol! Same here... I can picture in my head what they need to come up with to match the front... A thin flare that runs the same route as the factory rear flare but it's gotta have the same shape as the fronts... I wish I could post the pic in my head!

Any news or new pics Mike?

I am starting to think about the 3.5s over the 6" versions, as I am eager to get some on my project.

Do you have any pics of the two from the same angle, on similar Jeeps?

As far as a rear flare, the trimmed OE ones look great or even untouched stockers IMO, but we do plan to do a matching high clearance rear flare once we get the full line of fronts going. Thanks for asking.


As for pics of the Generation II fenders, I apologize I am long overdue for a post with pics. :o Here are some shots of the final product. (3.5" width) Also, they are available now for purchase, we are having a sale of $349 with free shipping to anywhere in the US.











Here is a shot showing the rubber grommet mount down by the rocker. This portion of the fender will pop off the gromet (and pop back on) in case there is any extreme impact to this portion of the flare.





Now we need to find some time to go Jeepin' and get some fresh action shots!


Also FYI I will be away from the computer until Monday so if anyone posts up questions, I will reply next week.

Thanks,

Mike

Would be awesome if they made a front with a little more wheel coverage and a matching rear. Maybe something is in the works??? I hope so.

Free bump for MCE!

6" versions are on pre-sale now. I just ordered mine.

I cannot wait!

How about some more pics to tide me over MCE guys?

I would especially like to see the 6" straight on from the front, side and rear.

I'll bump this thread now as well. A deer strike has me looking at fender replacements. Up until I found this thread I was looking at the MetalCloaks pretty hard. Main issue I had was what to do for the turn signals. The JK solution is extremely elegant, thanks to Jerry for all the work he has done and shared!

What still has me looking at the MetalCloaks is the tire clearance you gain without having to install a lift. I have a stock '05 Rubicon as a daily driver and I don't want to change it that much. I could see putting 33's on it but not much more. Because the MetalCloaks replace the inner fender, I think this would work. Could I clear 33"s with the 6" version of these?

That may be pushing it a bit... The pic of mine is with the standard width MCE fenders, 3.75"s of lift, 33s but also disconnected. I know that doesn't answer your question but maybe it can give you an idea? BYW, the front left is stuffed, close to the bump-stop.

Thanks for the response Phil! A picture is worth a 1000 words and yours has given me more food for thought. I need to confirm that the metal cloaks can deliver on the 33"s and have the same tire coverage as the 6" version of these so I'm comparing apples to apples.

Too many damned options limited by a budget....gonna start a separate thread specific to my generic situation. I really like the MCE's but I would need to get a lift to get where I want to be tire size wise. See ya on the other thread if your interested.

My MCE Gen II fenders with 3.5" Flare. JK front turn signal housings, 3/4" led side marker, stock rear flare trimmed to match.

Love those flats but can someone tell me why oh why don't they make them in varying widths ? For it to be legal in my state they have to cover tire width . I know you can add to them but I think it would be a much cleaner look if it were one piece . Just my opinion

They now do. The fenders I posted above are the Gen II version. Mine have the 3.5" flare. Same width as my stock flares. They have a 6" version that will cover almost anything. I think the guys at MCE are also coming out with a 4.5" version to match stock Rubicon flare width.

So, looks like they got you and your tires covered. Get 'em. Do it.

What'd you use for your markers on the flare? I like how it's small and clean!

Here you go. Modern Classic Enterprises

FYI, the new Gen II flared versions are one piece. Made with a new stronger material.
