Yep they're the Overland. The Overline are the original two piece higher clearance ones. Me, I'm fine with saving a few hundred bucks and a bunch of drilling. The Overlands area definitely on my list instead Saw them in person at MC's shop and yeah I like 'em.

Flyinion is correct these are the Overland fenders! They are one piece. The the other piece Mckey73 is referring to is the support mounting bracket for the fender.

I have the the Overline's on my other jeep and love them also but I like to run with the fenders off in the summer. My wife won't take hers off so we went with the overlands.

Lookn good. I love the look of the roof racks, but I like to go topless, so that will never work for me. Not till I get my wife a Jeep. Then she can go topless, or at least her Jeep can.

with that rack it is 4 bolts and it tilts back and you can pop the the top for those topless adventures in the wild.

The front part of the fenders with the M just a simple Piece of metal welded on? Buy direct from MC? Seems like only vendors i see carry lift parts only from them.

Attachment 249995

Here is the original
and the "Warn" sticker off of the roof rack.

CONGRATS on the cover, you've done an excellent job on the build!

*on another note, how much clearance is sacrificed with the Smittybilt rail/steps?

Almost none. I chose those because they provide a good step and an excellent rock rail at the same time. For the money I highly recommend the
