22draketemple [QUOTE=MustangWrangler;2592729]I spent about 2 hours cutting and respraying mine. Not hard if you take your time.

I was not too anxious to cut off my original metal fenders until I finally got it with the tire and then made the decision and this also gives you that additional inch or so of wheel travel. If you live in a state that requires the tires to be covered then the MCE has a 6 inch fender I believe that will cover your tire if it sticks out. I went with the 3 inch which is just about identical to the stock TJ flare.
Yeah that's why I'm wanting to upgrade last weekend I tore up my left fender..

I live in California so we don't have inspections, but if you are looking to replace the front fenders. MCE Flat Fenders IMO are the best. Also with a little cutting of the rear fenders they can be made to look like the fronts. They are cheaper then most fender replacements and look just as good.
