The TJ DeFender standard height (non-highline) Inner Fender Kits are now available! Now you can do a complete DeFender installation without having to retain and cut the stock inner fenders.
We've installed them on several TJ's with different configurations so far. And what we can say at this point is that we've been able to find a home for everything under the hood, with these installed. Even the stock air box. In the first two shots below, with the stock air box, you can see we had to tweak the grille support rod a bit. But that's because that particular Jeep has a tall coilover shock mount located directly underneath the air box. With a stock shock mount it shouldn't be a problem.
A few more under-hood shots on another rig...
The TJ DeFender Inner Fender Kit may be ordered directly from Poison Spyder or through any of our Authorized Poison Spyder Dealers.

OK here are the first installed photos of the standard height (non-highline) TJ DeFenders with 3" Tapered Flare. This is an install we're doing here, so I should be able to post some finished shots after they've been painted and reinstalled. But here they are bare, for those who've been waiting to see them installed on a TJ...

We've had a few inquiries about the Inner Fender Kit for the standard height TJ DeFenders. We just test-fit the first articles today and they fit great, with only a couple of minor adjustments needed. These should be available very soon.

Our standard TJ DeFenders (non-highline) are now available with 3" Tapered Flares. This is the style of flare used on our 3" YJ DeFenders as well as the TJ "highline" DeFender XC's. Ever since introducing both of those products we've had requests for a similar style for the standard TJ DeFenders, so here they are, in either STEEL or ALUMINUM!
I don't have any photos of them installed on a TJ yet but here are a couple shots of the YJ version to give you an idea what they look like mounted up:
The DeFender™ with 3" Tapered Flare was designed for maximum performance in several aspects. First, it provides the same splash protection of our regular 3" flare, keeping mud and debris from splashing up onto the side of the Jeep. But rather than having a straight side, the edge of the flare tapers inward toward the front of the Jeep, in a line parallel to the tapered edge of the hood. In this manner it tapers from 3" at the back, to about the same width as our "Zero Flare" at the front, providing the same great clearance for articulating tires and tight trails that our Zero Flare provides. DeFenders™ are also available in standard 3" Flare, Zero Flare and Negative Flare versions.

|DTS||1jeeplvr, over time the aluminum will "dull" a little bit from oxidation. But you can polish them periodically if you want them shiny. Or you can "line-grain" them with scotch-brite if you want a brushed look. If you live in an area where they salt the roads in the winter, I'm not sure what the salt will do.|

I don't know if it'll tarnish/ discolor, but it can be left alone. Here's a link to a review that Jerry Bransford did about the aluminum DeFenders when they had just come out. He left them bare.
Here's a link to my thread when I installed them. In the thread, Jerry mentions leaving his bare. You may reach out to him, and see how they've held up. Jerry is a great source of info, by the way.

|1jeeplvr||After looking at enough fenders for my TJ that my eyes are bleeding Ive decided on the P.S. Defenders w/3"flare.Question is,whets everyones thought on alum vs steel? I like the strength of steel but when one gets whacked by that tree I slide into wont the alum be better to absorb the impact? Im really afraid with the steel,the impact would cave the side of my Jeep in.|
