Metal cloak arrived!

My MC fenders arrived! And of course the temp has to drop so putting them on would be a royal PITA. Full armor rears will be ordered next time free shipping is offered!

WAIT!! If you look really closely in the second picture there appears to be a small hairline crack. You can ship them to me and I will fix it for you, free of course. However, do not be alarmed if they happen to get lost in the mail.....


Good purchase!!

What width flare did you go with? I'm getting ARB's and axle shafts installed right now, and am thinking about getting the metal cloaks as soon as I get it back from shop. I'm thinking that I will end up going with the overline, but not certain on the width. I'd like to go with as much coverage as possible to minimize the mud, sand, and water slung into the cab, but think the 4" may look better than the 6".

I went with the 6", because they offer the most coverage and since they are removeable I can take them off if needed....

Really think that is the route I will end up going. Where did you buy them from and how much were they? (Assume you got the rears as well.) If you don't mind me asking.

Directly from MC. Fronts were just over 1K w/ free shipping. Full Armor Rears w/ flare will be just under 1k... I'll order those next time they have free shipping again. Powder Coat included in those prices.

So I understand that with the front fenders you have to get the front flares plus the replacement fenders. What is it that you have to buy for the rears, aside from the flares?

MC Fenders come with everything needed, and you order the flare you want (extra).

Rears, You have to decide how you want to mount them...simple mount or some type of armor corner. My long term plans for my Jeep is that it will become a trail rig/toy so I'm buying full armor corners now rather than paying for the mounts twice. Learned my lesson when I bought the Bushcrappers...

Makes sense. My intentions for mine are to always keep it drivable down the interstate but also pushing the limits on some of the tougher trails. Not saying some day I don't go full buggy route, just not with this Jeep. Going to have to make a move soon on the fenders cause I'm going to rip off the stock flares very quickly.

Do the MC fenders actually raise the height of the fender or push the fender closer to the engine compared to stock? I'm somewhat assuming that it does increase height which is how the added clearance is achieved. My concern is that the fender will not fit on my passenger side now that I have a York on board air with the Kilby mount running off of my serpentine belt. I didn't have to manipulate my stock fenders in any way to get the York to fit, but it is quite tight.

Honestly not sure, I'll let you know once they get installed. I do know nothing needs to be relocated though...

Not exactly. Everything needs relocated from the stock fender onto the MC fenders. Most everything stays pretty close to its original position though.

Yeah that's what I meant...relocated to new fender rather than moved to new location.
