if you're on a tight budget, check out the stuff from Paramount that JeepAddOnsChris just put up

No budget. The price I quoted for the front cloak is also included custom powdercoated colors chosen by myself... I figure one day when the 4.0 kicks it ill just do this

That's pretty expensive for cloaks. Mine were only $750 with the 6" flare. Then again I didn't have delivery charges, I picked them up from Matson on his day off.

this is my jeep with CCFab corners with 3" flair, front fenders with 3" flair and their rockers and I think was about 800.00 for the full jeep front to back

Metalcloak or Genright gets my vote. I had the full Metalcloak set but i need something that opened my up my wheel wells more so I could lower my jeep so I bought the Genright front fenders and comp cut corners and welded there flare on it. I still need to do a stretch front and rear but im little tied up getting her Monsterlined


Metalcloak set 1.5in SOA with 37's



Genright set 1.5in SOA lift with 37's and custom boat side rockers




Both companies make awesome products. But due to ease of installation and the ability to remove or change the flare Metalcoak would be the one Id lean towards.

so I talked it out and apparently I don't need to spring for the powdercoating custom... just get them in black from metalcloak and I can scotchbrite them and paint as needed.. needless to say I went with metal cloak to do the front fenders and 6 inch flare it was 1150 after tax and that doesn't include shipping but theoverlines are ordered and paid they should be here in a month

Yes, mine were raw steel because I like to paint my own parts.
