Cool, I appreciate the opinion. Looking good for sure! Can't wait to get on my projects!

Munson821 I want these so bad, the quality is supposed to be fantastic hence the price.

f9k9 Another hijack. My Rubicon lockers are long gone. My ARB compressor is currently located on the "shelf" by the brake booster that was originally intended the the ABS system. Will I need to relocate that? I am wanting the MC fenders and I realize that other brands have issues there.

Boone Jeembro,
I noticed you also installed the metalcloak front bumper, which looks awesome. I know you have to choose different options to build the bumper on the website. Which stinger hoop did you choose? (Sorry about the hi-jack)
03-05-2013 11:33 PM
Mephare Thanks. They aren't that bad compared to the price of buying all new stock fenders offf of Quadratec. Those are $540 a pair vs $599 for the overline tube pair.

You have to look at your state laws on that one. Go to metalcloak.com and choose the tj section. Then select which fender type you want (overline or arched) and then select the flare option you want (none, 4 inch, or 8 inch). They aren't cheap

They are street legal but very expensive, to use the actual flares themselves you have to get the part which remakes up the wheel well too.

No, they're overline fenders and 4" flares. They go up above the hood just a little bit

Sccafire To make the install easier either label the bolts and put in a bag or replace them on the fender. Then just switch it over. Also be careful with stock fenders, somebody may want to buy them.

Alright awesome

I've read all the posts about them already but no one really stresses how long they took to install or any problems. So If you've had experience with them please leave a reply and help me out before I buy them.

Thanks!
