ghost13 love the fenders wish my budget would allow for them......but kid in collage throws a wrench in the spokes everytime.......

kenb1023 Does anyone have pics of a side marker light set up? In my travels I am sometimes in states that require them? If there is a sleek install that does not look jury rigged I would like to see it

Rengoku I am also interested in the ACE fenders... but, am wondering do the Poison Spyder JK Rear Crusher Flares™ - Standard Width (Aluminum) have the same gap issues? Does anyone have a closeup shot of theirs?

10-25-2012 04:05 PM Thanks Adam! I just could not show it on our black JK. Keep making it appear worse that it is. Plus, your wording helped too!

10-25-2012 03:59 PM
Matador That's exactly what I was asking for, thank you very much.
10-25-2012 03:55 PM
ACE ENGINEERING Hope this helps!!! The sheet metal comes down and then angles back into the jeep. The fender rests right up against that angle. I think this might be what your seeing but it is actually tapered sheet metal. Thanks
10-25-2012 12:55 PM
Matador Jason, again thanks for your effort to get the info out.I think it would really help if ACE posted shots of their Geko Jeep from the side to accurately show the gap. Black fenders on a Black Jeep is a bit difficult to get a sense of how big the gap really is. Black fenders on a Geko jeep would be much better.
10-25-2012 12:45 PM Here, these are with a small tape measure I have on my desk. This is at the largest section in the "gap". It shows there is not much to it at all. The pictures on the Black ACE JK creates a shadow and makes it apper a lot worse than it is. This is as far back as the tape measure would go. Sorry for the crappy iPhone pictures...

Hope that helps...

10-25-2012 12:40 PM No, it touches the flat section of the stock quater pannel. The "Gap" is between where it "rolls" into the flat section. Here, I just took some pictures. Let me upload them really quick...

10-25-2012 12:30 PM
kramer2k Maybe it's not as bad as the picture makes it appear?

Can you stick a finger in there? Is it that much of a gap?
10-25-2012 12:19 PM Its really not that bad and there is no gap. I can measure or try to anyway. But the way the fender "rolls" right there, I am not sure how you would even get a tube to lay flat against it.

10-25-2012 12:09 PM
kramer2k Hmm, that's a pretty large looking gap in the rears. That's a bummer.
10-25-2012 12:07 PM
Matador Thanks for following up Jason. I just wanted to get the info out there so people aren't disappointed when they install them. ACE should offer a shot of the rear in their product shots like they do of the front.
10-25-2012 11:34 AM Lou,

I talked with ACE this morning and on both sets (narrow and wide) they are running the same rear fenders. You are correct on why the tube does not fallow the factory lines to a T. It would be extremally difficult to put that bend in the tube and also the skin of the fender.

Here is a picture of it on our JK and we can get better pictures of our rear fenders if needed:

10-25-2012 11:10 AM
Matador This is the concern I have with the spacing in the rear fenders and the reason I'm asking for better side shots of the rear. I think its important that guys know of the gap before they put the fenders on. I understand for rigidity it may not be able to curve with the Jeep's lines and some guys won't care, but if your going to put up photos, its important to show everything so people are fully aware. And Jason, both on your site and ACE's the rear isn't shown at all.

I also want to make something else very clear. I love ACE, their side rails were among the first things I added to my Jeep. I think the quality and fit of their stuff is usually top notch, which is why I was surprised about these rears, but like I said there is probably a logical rigidity reason why it can't be done. Also, their customer service is incredible, I had a severe problem with their door hangers and they were on top of it immediately. I'm still waiting for the resolution we had talked about, but I'm sure they'll come through in the end. So, until then, they have me as a loyal customer and supporter, lets just get everything out there so people aren't disappointed or surprised when installing your products.
10-25-2012 10:16 AM The marker light is a easy DIY project if you want to even run it. I have seen guys zip tie the stock one in there or there is a handful of aftermarket options that you can get to go in there as well.

Also, we have these up on our site now!

I ordered a set of led amber side marker that are thin enough to be put right on the edge or maybe a bracket just underneath. I'll have to wait and see how they look. They are less than 3/4" tall and legal.

Yeah, they mention that users have come up with ways to deal with it. And I think I do remember seeing another video around here where someone rigged something up. I'll have to look I guess, I might just like these more than the Bushwackers...

steed77 Would like to see some installed pics. Very interested in these.

Ex Umbris Currus Love my ACE Rock Rails so these are definitely on my wish list!
10-21-2012 12:51 PM
sandbaja I want this so into the wish bucket it goes.
10-21-2012 09:29 AM
JVL Nice!!! Wish I waited on my Bushwackers. Those look awesome. Good price too comparing to others.

Oh he'll yeah! I've been waiting for these for a while.

My 15" Black Rock wheels on 35" tires have 3.75" of BS, so the regular ACE fenders just weren't going to look right. My tires right now are sticking out about 2", which looks perfect to me.

So glad ACE got these out.

WatchThis! I have the narrow ones. Tough as nails and good fit and finish.

10-20-2012 09:26 PM
MrAugie Anyone have these or the narrow fenders? I am about to pull the trigger on these as they are half the price of everything else and appear to be quality. I was looking for some feedback from anyone that has these fenders.
10-14-2012 12:09 AM
Ubear7 I like. I'll wait for these also. I think it would look better with the Rampage front bumper.
09-22-2012 08:17 PM
Lowerumble Wow. Those wider fenders would be awesome. They should definetely put those into production.
