I live in CA and have yet to be confronted about my tires hangin out *knock on wood*

Ya thats what turning me away from them right now plus $700...

Kota7x X2 on the MCEs they are great, they hold up to snow, mud, sun, wind, etc. Mine are outside 24/7 in all conditions and they have not faded at all. Both Jeeps below have MCE Gen II 3.5" Fenders.


If you want more pictures, just ask!

About the same as any tube fender. They require you to cut your factory fender.

If I had the choice to use my Tj as a DD and not need the flatties for coverage, I'd go tube fenders all day, every day.

Oh, and here's my Tj with flatties on 33x12.5's:
What size and brand are those? What size lift are you running as well?

tube fenders vs flat flares

Hey guys I just want some opinions on tube fenders and flat flares like the xenons. My fenders are starting to bubble a little bit so I would like to replace them. Post up some pictures and let me know your reasoning for purchasing either one. Thanks everyone!
