Jerry Bransford I'm back & forth on whether I'll go with steel tube fenders. One the one hand they give more clearance and they look outstanding. On the other hand, they have been responsible for a lot of tweaked tubs when hit hard enough on the trail. They've caused the tubs to get tweaked so hard that the hood no longer closes square to the fenders any more, or sometimes even the doors no longer open & close properly. This problem isn't likely to be a concern on anything but a very tough 5 or 5+ rated trail but...

not any more. it has TBI and a home made snorkel. everything is well away from the fenders though, so i think it'll be ok.

snwchris Whiterhino, not bad, kindof along the lines of the Poision Spider style.
When looking into them see what the installation instructions say... such as direct bolt on, any cutting required... does it keep the stock inner fender, is a aftermarket air intake required... etc.

I live in Clovis Ca. and have full width 3/4 ton axles on my Jeep. The tires stick out about 7-8 inches from the stock fender flares. And I've never been hassled. Go figure.

Tucker54 Has anyone made their own Tube Fenders? I have a machine shop, and they don't look incredibly hard.......

Also, Could you simulate "tube" or "flat" fenders by cutting the front off the stock fenders? if that makes sense...

jdhallissey I say stick it to the man lol
05-08-2009 07:30 PM
snwchris Nope no issues here in OH or PA so far.
I believe most state laws around here are as long as half the tire is covered, so it depends on your tire width as well.

I believe out west it's even more flexible from what I've heard from some
