Metalcloak vs Rockslide fenders

HI,

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

I can't justify spending that much on something that will just get scratched up and dinged.

with a 33" tire, you can full flex with the stock fenders....

No, I get tire tuck with my current 2.5" Teraflex coil lift in some situations.

1/2" of bumpstop is a lot cheaper than $2000 fenders

I will get bumps stops with the lift, But i want to use the full potential of the 6 pak shocks, which are supposed to have a better up travel than normal shocks.
