Replacement Fender advice

We tore up a front fender on our TJ yesterday and I have to replace it. 'I'll have it painted and do the install myself.

I have found replacements in all the usual places like Ebay and at most of the Jeep vendors frequently discussed here....price range from $200 to $700 but I have no way to evaluate the quality of any of them. I suspect that many of them are selling the same fenders from the same distributor.

Any help with a specific vendor recomendation would be appreciated...I'm looking for fair price but a good fit is more important. Any help is most appreciated.

Are you looking for new or used?

If you're saying $200 - $700 then quadratec has brand new fenders for $234 ready to be painted.

Then theres no question of the quality

Modern Classic Enterprises would be my suggestion unless you gotta worry about coverage laws.

Thanks Vaultzz and DDD for your comments...I need to go with the original style fenders, so if I don't find a used OEM locally today then I'll take the Quadatec suggestion and order from them.
I'll do a follow-up post on fit and how the process goes when I'm done so others will find this on future 'searches"

I would NEVER buy certifit crap EVER again, no matter how good they say it is lining up. OEM or some aftermarket tube fenders would be the only way to go in my opinion.

I would not go back with oem parts I would go with bushwhacker they cost a lot but they look great if I needed to redo mine that's what it would be.
