Smittybilt SRC Tube Fenders

Well as you know I've been looking for a new front bumper and some tube fenders. As of yesterday I had almost talked myself out of doing it. Then 4wd.com had the SRC Tube Fenders on sale for $ 199.99. Needless to say my order is in!

If you're looking for tube fenders you can't beat the price on these!

Yep, mine's in too. Shame, shame, I shouldn't spend the money, But I can sell my stockers and make up for some of it at least. Can't beat the price, either, considering they normally go for $500 a pair.

I agree. The TNT's I was looking at are $ 650.00 shipped. Man, you just can't beat $ 199!

I wish I had a picture of the ones that off road wherehouse is building, maybe I can find a pic. They are a modular design with a bolt on tube flair, so on the off chance you bend one, you can easily fix it. Saw the prototype the other day at the shop on the owners jeep when I was picking up my axle.

I hope it lasts long enough too, I have to make $500... I owe someone $300 and I want $200 to catch the deal on the fenders.

Mine ended up being $248 shipped. Not a bad deal at all.

I looked it up. Seems to be in kit form, and requires welding. The SRC's are complete and ready to go.

yeah, it probably comes in pieces that you have to weld up, most other tube fenders come finished already

The Blue Torch Fab require welding and I believe it requires cutting up your existing flares. Also, they do not include the inner fender well.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

you dont have to weld up your inner fenders up to them
they have a small inner fender to bolt all of your stuff to

but it doesnt cover the whole wheel well thats where you fab somthing or cut your inner fenders out

You said the word that eliminates me from the equation - "fab".

Looks like the Smittybilts are now sold out!

http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?pid=76831

But I guess they must still have some YJ's in stock.
