No copying here......
I built these to keep from tearing up my fenders. I don't go ram-rodding through the rocks, nice and slow. It sucks when you slide sideways into a boulder and screw up a fender. "My Jeep's too pretty to scratch" LOL

Believe it or not, all the tubing on my fender guards are from the legs on about 4 or 5 school chairs that I had lying around here. I guess you could say that I did my part in recycling something. The tubing is actually pretty stout. The best part is that I didn't have to worry about bending anything since each chair already had 4 90's on each of them. Hah!! the things you do when you get bored.

Burnout189, they might just be the nicest fenders I have ever seen, homemade or not. Awesome work.
