Obviously you dont know much about the mc fenders. They actually are cheaper overall....and stronger too. Name another fender assembly that allows 35's to be run with no added bumpstops needed.

And everything needs to be drilled and remounted.

Besides MC's are 599 with inners included.
Posions are 529 + 149 for the inners.

EXACTLY why I went MetalCloak !
Everything is included, no hacking involved.... PLUS I sold my factory fenders and flares so after install I got a couple hundred dollars for my take off parts.

Heh, no one has mentioned that the MetalCloak flares are detachable. That little feature has come in handy.

Agreed! I still have no flare on my front arched fenders, but it is pretty sweet that i could just swap out for different size flares. And same with the rear fenders. Im hoping i can get my full corner guards soon, those holes in the rear quarter panel are starting to get to me

Yep.....love the 3 piece modular fenders......i have both rub rails and 6" flares now.

MC sells a ton of fenders.....but notice how you rarely see used ones for sale.

Do you have any pics of the rub rails mounted front and rear? I ordered the front overline fenders with no flare, and the rear mounting plate.

I ordered the rear mounting plate just to cover up all the holes, lol. I rather look at the mounting plates.

Do they make metal cloaks with side signal lights? I might consider going that route when my fenders rust out again (hopefully never-knock on wood lol)

Yes you can purchase led side markers for the fenders

Cool shot!
The jeep looks like a die-cast or a model kit.

I've been looking into fenders for a while now and after I found this thread I'm sold. I am curious though if the extra $130 for the powder coating is worth it

Id say the powder coat is worth it, it's a light wrinkle coat and looks great. Unless you want to use a rattle can and have to touch it up every couple of months. And getting it powder coated somewhere else could cost you a lot more.

If the black color works for you then YES without question spend the extra money for the powder coating. If you want a different color coordination then obviously pick up the bare steel.

I personally did the bare steel/aluminum components so I could keep the factory match paint, but it was a lot of extra work and effort to do so.

Depends on the quality of the paint used. First time I did it, I sprayed when it was too humid out, so I ended up having to repaint. But the second time I repainted I used a 3 stage system(primer,paint,clear), and the paint on the new fenders is as good as the factory. No rattle paint can's will be necessary this time for me for touch ups.

I just finished the installation of mine last week, so only poser shots right now.

I ordered mine bare, and painted them silver to match, but with underneath the flairs and the outer tubes painted satin Rustolium black.

To be honest, it might have been more efficient to order them powder coated black and just paint the flairs and the small rearmost part of the front fender silver. There's more black than silver the way I did it!

Also, I was paranoid about future rust, so lots of attention with the primer and paint to get into all the nooks...which was tough to do w/o forming drips. The MC powder coat would have done all that for me.

Just FYI> I also painted the inner fenders silver inside/black outside. Now the engine compartment looks pretty much OEM...which was a consideration for me, and not much extra effort since I was painting the fenders anyway.

These are 6" Overlines, with the rear having the "competition cut" opening, which eliminates the lower corners of the tub opening, which is where the tire hits most when stuffed.

For the turn signals, I converted to the CJ look with some JK lights at the same time.

^^ wow, really impressed man! Superb job, it looks amazing! I have a black jeep, I pondered painting the tops green, or maybe just the bars green. Nice accents. At any rate they still haven't shipped it's been a month now I'm sooooooooooooo impatient by this point. can't wait! going to do 33's stock.

^^Thanks for the kind words. It's my DD, so I like to keep it nice if at all possible.

MC's moving to a much larger building, so I doubt that's helping the shipping time. Mine took 3 weeks to ship, but I ordered them in plenty of time (like back in April) just in case it took longer.

Finally got my Metalcloaks on over the weekend. I have the mounting plates for the rear also. Right now they are waiting for a quick paint job.

Love all these pics, the MC's are sweet... saving my pennies

Does anyone think 6" arched fronts with 4" rears would look 'off'?
