Aluminum Metalcloak fenders = nice
I finished swapping out my steel MC arched fenders for a new set of aluminum this weekend, so I figured I would share. Taking them out of the box, you can immediately tell a HUGE difference in weight. I think it is about 20 lbs per side. As with all Metalcloak products I have purchased, the fit and finish was spot on.

The installation was very easy and within an hour I had the job complete. If you are looking for a complete lightweight fender replacement, this is the product for you. If you like using the fenders to push off obstacles, less concerned about weight, or working on a tighter budget, stick with the steel fenders. Either way, you can't go wrong.

Subscribed just cause you're jeep is awesome :) probably a 40" light bar but metal cloak fenders and a 50" are my next mods

Hey would you guys suggest getting the powder coated ones or the bare metal? I plan on monstalining the jeep eventually.

CountryBoyJeep 04-18-2013 07:26 PM

Bare, much cheaper that way.

janosko9424 04-18-2013 07:36 PM

Ok that's what I was thinking how did y'all paint them? Or did you just leave them bare?

aTX427 04-18-2013 07:44 PM

bare aluminum is the new carbon fiber

How much they set you back?

janosko9424 04-18-2013 08:38 PM

They are like 600 bucks I think? Then those flares are around 200 dollars extra I think not 100% sure. What size are the flares??

aTX427 04-18-2013 09:58 PM

the flares are 6" front and rear.

janosko9424 04-18-2013 10:44 PM

I'm gonna get those eventually once I save up! do you have any pictures of the rears?

aTX427 04-19-2013 03:13 AM

In my build thread. Check out my signature.

janosko9424 04-19-2013 10:48 AM

Ok thanks!

You have Savvy rear corners though right? I am wondering if MC is going to make an extended rear corner in Aluminum right now they only have full. I like the Aluminum fronts and may find myself switching to those at some point as well. Solid looking Jeep!

Very cool & very cool looking! For sure aluminum is the way to go on such upgrades, it sure cuts the weight.

aTX427 04-19-2013 10:12 PM

The steel ones are already sold. I am sellibg my MC rock rails though. PM me if you are interested.

TJDave 04-19-2013 10:24 PM

Looks great!:thumb:

Curious why you went with the Savvy alum rear corners instead of Metalcloak alum rears?

Not that your Savvy corners don't look great. Just curious.

aTX427 04-20-2013 05:39 PM

Savvy aluminum corders were $300 less and I already had the MC rear fender mounting plates, which makes up some of the difference in cost.
