How hard is fender replacement
Sometime in the near future i'd like to do the metalcloaks on my tj. About how hard and how long is this process?

Hardest part is removing the stock fenders once it was unbolted. It was a huge pita. Removing the stuff thats attached to the fenders was easy not to difficult getting them all back in the right place. Took me about a day to do but i also painted my fenders so sanding and dry times were a big part of the project time.

Did both fenders a few weeks ago and it really was not to bad. Both in about 6 hours.

My buddy did the metal cloaks not too long ago and the only hiccup we ran into was using the stock air box. Other than that it was a fairly smooth install.

I helped a co-worker do Metalcloaks back in September. The only issues were a few corroded fasteners on some of the underhood componemts. Took about 5 1/2 hours to swap the fenders, get everything re-mounted to the new inners, and mount the flares.

My MetalCloak install was super simple and easy.

Everything factory unbolts and the MetalCloak fender bolts right back in. All my engine accessories bolted right back on with zero issues.

The biggest problem I had was storing the factory fenders until I got them sold on craigslist.
