I am thinking of upgrading the stock fenders. Since I have the AEV full width bumper, looking into full width fenders that can give max clearance for MC 3.5 lift.
The 2 choices are Metal cloak (Although not full width) and Rock slide engineering.
Metal cloak Overline = $1905 (front+back+inside liner + painted black)
Metal cloak Oveland = $ 1427 (front+back+inside liner + painted black)
Rock slide Full width or flat fender = $ 999 (front+back+inside liner + painted black)
Metal cloak claims that to get best out of the 6 paks shocks their fenders provide most clearance. Rockslide claims 3” extra height from the stock fenders. Cleaarance depends on a lot of variables, so here is the question
With a 33” tire with 4.5 backspacing, will it really matter at full flex (14” shock travel) if I go MC or RS. I am suspecting the tire won’t touch the top of either as these fenders are probably made with 37” tires in mind.
Any advice that helps me save some money is appreciated
