Picture Request: Metalcloak Fenders with 31's or 33's

I am getting ready to pull the trigger next month on some Metalcloak fenders and will be installing them for ~1 month with the current set of 31's I have now and then will be upgrading to 33's for the time being. After a couple of planned mods I'll be regearing and moving upto 35's with a 2.5 OME lift. I have had it for about 6 months and am excited to have a solid (for now) plan of mods!

Thanks guys. I got all pieces bare metal and had them powder coated myself.

I got the rear corner guards and inner fenders and inner fender wells powder coated with a black undercoat and a green flake overcoat to simulate, but not quite match the Shale Green Pearlcoat body color. I had the outer fender flares and rocker guards powder coated a satin black to match the texture of the Warn bumpers.

I was going for a 'stock' coloring/pattern, with the functionality of the MetalCloaks.

Below is a direct pic of the rear corner guard, subtly powder coated in green flake.

That looks awesome, I just purchased the rear extended corner guard with the 4"flare and I need to find a good powder coater. Sorry to thread jack, but how do you think I'll be spending to get the rears + 4" fenders powder coated? Do you think I should drill my holes before I powder coat it? What do you coat the inside of the corner guards with?

It's hard to tell how much powder coating would cost, I've only ever got quoted from 1 person. I think I averaged about $50 per big item (flare, fender, corner guard).
