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...that looks great!

Not really. they matched up perfectly, easy to install in my opinion. just make sure you have some good drillbits and take your time.

I have some pointers for you if you're doing the rear. Make sure you pull back your carpet in the interior and on the drivers side make sure you pull your wiring harness away from rail, its directly behind where you'll be drilling into the body. I recommend Step Drill bit after you drill your pilot holes, it seemed to cut through the body like butter, little to no effort. I am not saying a normal drill bit doesn't work, but if you happen to have a Step Drill bit use it. Also, its easier if you remove the the wheel well cover thing all together instead of fighting it during the entire installation, which is what I did. Good luck.

I'm only doing the fronts for now but thanks for the tip. As soon as my wallet/wife allows me to do the rears I will use those great pointers.

Love the stance on your jeep. Are you running the HD springs or light?

4 inch flares and 35's on a 4.5 inch lift. I could go bigger like 37's now with the fenders!

I like the look of metal cloaks? They are quick disconnect too, gen rights are not. Keep negative opinions to yourself, metal cloak sells great products

I considered the GenRights. I went w/ the MC's so that>

1. I wouldn't have to cut my hood (don't like the edge that it leaves)

2. Would be able to remove flares for tight trails.

3. Kept all my inner fender bits and full size battery and Viair compressor in the same locations.

4. Tapered lower flare area (vertical) won't hit/catch on rocks.

5. Tapered front flare (horizontal) gives extra clearance in tight spots.

For me, it was a function over form decision. I do think the GR's look better, but that's not a primary decision maker for me. That's all subjective anyway. I do like the aggressive look of the MC's a lot.

More clearance w/ GR's? I don't know about that. If so, it can't be much more. I run very little bumpstop now. No tire rub at all on my bottom photo.

hood- just put edge trim on it and u never know the difference. remove flares- with genright u dont need 2 theyre built so well u can just push on through. Batt and compressor - run optima yellow top in same location arb twin compressor mounted on top of inner fender tapered flare - not the lower half but they can take some abuse anyway and the top half is tapered but also super strong and will plow through anyway. They do have more clearance up and behind the wheel. I've parked next 2 a set of those and compared with the other fellow. They're good just not as good as gr

Found a used set of MCE 4" Fenders for sale, complete front, rear and the rock rails too. So I bought them along with the lovely green TJ that was attached.
