Metalcloak rear fenders questions

Im looking at the M.C. rears. It states they are a quick release fender. What does that mean? I cant think of a time Id want to remove them.
Also how do they mount,are there brackets so there not just bolted to the tub?
And they have several mounting options. Whats the best?

I looked into those.
think you buy a mounting plate (goes to body) then the fender (holds to plate) of your choosing. 2 part deal
as is front, inner fender then tube flair or rub rail
but removing rather than crushing them if your running tight terrain is nice option to fixed fenders.

Thanks Dave.That makes them really expensive.Maybe I'll consider the P.S. to match my fronts.

after looking at quite a few, most all of them are not cheap. and unless seeking a highline cut, most offer not much more than style,
the MC is complete bolt on sys, no cutting with provisions to remount engine compartment components........you can pull your fenders and sell um off.
does have benefits.
PS looked ok as well as Genright

i like highline look and will be attempting to alter my OE fenders next spring.

MC does have rear flare mounting tabs in builder section 70$ while the sys is sold with brackets and a full backing plate a bit of resourceful engineering you could mount just the smaller brackets and flares i bet
but if you roll PS on front id stay similar especially if it's square tube.

I do like the mounting plate they use. It looks like it may serve as a plate that would spread the impact if the fenders were to contact a rock or tree. I may call P.S. to see if there fenders use some sort of bracket or plate that would attach to a structural area of the Jeep instead of just bolting to the tub.

Wel the P.S. ones come in around 80ish dollars less since they come with the plate. The M.C. ones ,the plate is separate.And the P.S. ones will match the fronts,not a big deal but def a perk. But sheesh,400.00 for fenders. Its a Jeep thing I guess. Better than spending my money in strip clubs and on drugs.That wouldent have a good ending to the story...or would it lol...

id do the MC's their sys cost more but seems to install better with less fab.
that's what im doing as soon as I find $2K

some people use the removable feature of the MC to better see the front tires while rockcrawling, (have ever seen pics of people hanging out their windows/doors while on a big rock they are checking frt. tires) then just reinstall for the police on the way home.

I learned that here!

Well I have p.s. on the front, even then my tires stick out farther than the fenders so being able to see isn't ever an issue.And I've never thought, being able to remove my rear fenders would make this climb/ trail easier.So being able to remove them isn't beneficial to me.Maybe for some it would but not for me.
