Anybody have Mopar High Top Fender Flares?

These things are advertised as being able to accommodate 35s without a lift, which in theory would make them a nice option, but nobody on here seems to talk about them.

Moparョ 77072342 High Top Fender Flares for 07-17 Jeepョ Wrangler Unlimited JK | Quadratec

They're mighty expensive, which might be the issue. Perhaps the looks, too. (I actually dig the look.)

Anybody have these? Like 'em? (Or dislike 'em and wanna sell 'em to me?? )

I love mine. Easy install. Get to keep inner liners. Easy to remove for hard core wheeling (to stack on another Jeep, or to prevent trail damage).

Keeps a factory look.

Thanks for the pics. Looks good.

I am leaning towards getting them. They seem to be cheaper than tube fenders, but more than those crappy bushwacker flares. I don't see them as being priced above what they are. If they really let you run 35's with no lift or a leveling lift I think that would be what I want. It would allow us to keep the COG as low as possible and still run larger tires. And it would look like it is supposed to be like that, rather than looking like a project.

I've got a Rubicon Recon on order. This is not my first JK, but will be the first one that gets only minimal mods. All I am planning on is these flares, 35s, and a warn winch in the stock front bumper.

I can remove all four flares and inner liners in about 20 minutes.

These plastic rivets are used by the factory to hold the top edge of the wrangler grill. They can be reused over and over again. I did find it was helpful to have a trim removal tool like this

Super price on Lisle 35260 at ToolTopia.com

I saw them in real life and wasn't very impressed. They give the Jeep a rather odd "hitched up pants" look, but YMMV. They also don't mate with full-length bumpers that are designed to mate with stock flares (the gap between the flare and the bumper gets uncomfortably big).

Anybody have Mopar High Top Fender Flares?

See if they can get the price down, my dealer sells these for 725 for the four. Makes them seem better for the 100 bucks less, I want them but haven't seen them in person yet.

? Whats crappy about the Bushwacker flares? Yes they are among the cheapest options out there, but definitely serve their purpose. IMHO look better than these high top.

Sorry, no offense meant.
But crappy as to quality, and that when one breaks you can't buy a single replacement. That seems to be the biggest complaint about them.
Personally, I would spend the money to get tube fenders if I wanted that look.

None taken, I was just wondering about if you had any bad experiences. Yes the replacement issue was almost a deal breaker on my end.

So, I wonder if these would work with 37" tires and the TF 2.5" coil lift without additional trimming?

Can someone post pics with these flares and 37's?

That's roughly the same conclusion that I reached. It's nice they have that option but, for the money and aesthetics, I'll go with a quality set of metal flat fenders.

They are $685 dealer cost, which is what my dealer sold them for when I purchased the Jeep.

It always cracks me up when "jeepers" see a price on an accessory and run for the moon. Yet, turn around and look at many of their Jeeps and see them lifted, HUGE tires, anywhere from cheap to extremely expensive wheels, wazoo front and rear bumpers, a ZILLION lights all over (including LED light bars) and a whole lot more.
The Mopar High Top Fenders are certainly not for everyone, obviously. The wife and I did not want our new-to-us '15 JKUR to look like some thrashed rock crawler with ANY version of flat fenders. Not to mention, about 90% of the flat fenders DO NOT COVER the entire tire tread so, guess what happens when it's raining when your out and about????

So, when we found out about the Mopar High Top Fenders, and what they would provide in clearance for our 315s without doing any other form of lifting other than a T/F leveling kit, they were going to do the trick for us. And, as has been stated, you get to keep the inner fender liners which, along with the design of the new fenders, keeps the appearance of an ALMOST stock jeep, but appears to be lifted more than it actually is.

If one doesn't like the price, walk away, it's not rocket science. If one doesn't like the looks, same answer. We don't like "Flatties" so, we just veered off to other avenues. Of all the folks we've jeeped with since the install of them, about 80% of them are in favor of them and like both the looks and, functionality in terms of nice, larger tire clearance without applying larger or higher lifts. They are different, for sure. But, so is ANY other aftermarket accessory.

I think the price seems fair, and I like the look. Flat fenders look cool on other peoples Jeeps, but I don't think I want them on mine. I like the stock look and the stock functionality. Some of the tube fenders are like the half helmets so many bikers wear.

In your installation the inner liners fit, no cutting?
Thanks

I love the look of these and if/when I do flares these are the ones I want. I love the stock look but the extra clearance.

The inner liners have to be cut to separate the piece from the wheel well from the piece under the stock fenders. It can be done with a dremel. I choose not to run liners in the back (may rhino line them later) and purchased the ACE front liners.

Arrow It's possible to work a deal in the $650-$675 range

If you have access to several dealers, you may be able to find a MOPAR dealer willing to give you a greater discount. You should be able to work a quote more in the $650-$675 range, and if really fortunate, a bit lower. If you just bought a Wrangler from a dealer you can try appealing from that basis.

These are a bit pricey for what they are, but if maintaining an "OEM Fender look," and fitting 35's (w/o a suspension lift) is important, these are the option.

If you wheel I highly recommend investing in the metal flares like MetalCloak or Poison Spyder. Mine have held me off trees and rocks a dozen times in the past year saving me any type of body damage. They have paid for themselves several times over already.

Here's a couple of pictures of what they turned out like.







I'm real happy with the way they turned out. They look like the stock fenders, but are much more stout than the stock fenders, and have plenty of clearance for 35s, while still actually covering the tires and keeping mud off your Jeep.
