@drtyrat30 , @KS_Yeti how's the fitment on the Aries tube fenders? Is it perfectly flush with the body? Some aftermarket fenders I've seen in person have gaps. I really like their look and it can come in bare aluminum which I also like.
Last, how long did install take? I never used a rivet gun before and i'm scared that I might screw it up.
I've never used a rivnut tool before (borrowed it from the body shop in town) and start to finish i think it took me like 3 hours for all 4 if i remember correctly.
Fitment could be a little better, the fit flush, but there are a couple spots where the body line is slightly curved up wards, and the fenders are flat. Leaving just a small gap in the body lines. Its tight against the body, just doesnt quite follow the body lines perfectly.
But for the price, i wont complain one bit. These fenders are an amazing "bang for your buck" type purchase. Love them.
@KS_Yeti ... thanks for your honesty. I really like these fenders A LOT. Whenever you get the chance, can you post a picture of the gap. I can't tell from the pictures so that maybe a very good thing lol. Last does it come with some sort of gasket between the body/fenders?
Mopar Hightop Fenders.
A year later, and I'm still on the fence. lol
35"tires, 3" lift, and a two rock "leveling" kit under the rear tires (in this picture).
A huge boulder jumped out onto the trail and gave the right rear fender a "high five"
(that's my story and I'm sticking to it )
Thanks @KS_Yeti ... It seems like its only from certain angles which will not deter me from making a purchase. Carparts.com using an 8% discount code brought it down to $577 shipped. There's a possibility of purchase next week. Thanks again, and i'm sold on these now.
