Tube Fender

I was in a minor off roading accident and tore up my driver side fender. I've been wanting to replace them with ones that arent stock for awhile so i figure now is as good a time as any. My problem is the fenders i find like the smittybilt require an original fender to be used as well. Is there any that don't also need an oem fender to be installed?

I am also new to WF so.. Hello all!

Metalcloak makes some awesome full replacement tube fenders but they are not cheap.

These fenders are not full replacements...you need an OE fender in place to install these as well, since you cut away part of the fender to mount these in place.

Metalcloaks are the only fenders I know of that are full replacement fenders, although I am not a fan of the way they look.

Welcome to the forum bud.

Only three out there that come with a inner fender.

TNT "treksoffroad" Fully welded only have to bolt on.
Rokmen, YOU have to weld them up and only Hyline...so you will have to cut the hood.
Metalcloak....bolt on system that you bolt together.
