Which Metalcloak, T&T, Poison Spyder, or Gen right makes the best fender?

They have been out for a while now and many of you guys have purchased these fenders. Now that you have had a chance to break them, what do you guys think? Are they worth the money? Do they make the Jeep look cool? Do they really provide enough tire clearance for 36" tires w/o having to lift the jeep? Are they really rugged? Would you buy them again? Where they simple to install like the manufacturer claimed? Did they provide all the necessary bolts, brackets, or did they forget to mention something important? If so, what? Please post photos!

Not sure who has the best ones, but T&T sure has awesome service.

I had some rust show up after the my first winter on some sliders and they promptly sent me a new set! I'll definitely be looking to buy from them again.

Metal Cloak does seem to have spent the most effort in producing a complete product. I went with TNT though. MC is just too expensive and I think theyre ugly. That being said, I do like the well thought out product they produce.

Metalcloak is a TRUE bolt-on replacement. No welding or drilling holes required. Comes with all necessary hardware and brackets. Very well thought out system.

I had a great customer service experience with Metalcloak. The quality is top notch and if you don't like the arched fronts, you can go for the more subtle look with the overlines. The fender tapering into the body is both good and bad. You get to keep your clearance while still having some coverage (in that you don't have to lose the flare), but you will still get a bit more spray than a conventional fender that comes off of the body at 90 degrees. For me the clearance was more important. They look and feel burly, but I've been running into less things lately so mine haven't really taken a hit yet.

Overkill Engineering has attracted my attention, but I have not bought their product.

Metal Cloak is fantastic! My buddy just put them on his and they are well built. It took him a solid day to put them on (not being in a rush), but the install was straight forward. He's no mechanic so the average do-it-yourself person should be able to. They are nice because you can remove the flares for off road and put them back on for the road.

They will be on mine when I put together the cash!

Seriously! Matson came down to the shop on his day off to get me my fenders. THAT'S customer service! I saw the production floor and chatted a bit about quality and there is no doubt in my mind that I made the wrong decision. I'll be painting these bad boys tomorrow and installing Sunday.

To anyone reading this resurrected thread when it resurfaces. Again. Don't hesitate to go metalcloak.

MetalCloak.

1. I love how they look.
2. Other people love them (if that matters to you). I catch people gawking/talking about them a lot.
3. They really do provide more clearance for bigger tires.
4. It is a COMPLETE system. I didn't have to sawzall/weld/drill anything.
5. Customer service is great.

Only drawback - Almost zero mud or snow/salt spray coverage. I have a solution for this, I just need a welder.

edit to add: my avatar is when I had 33s and no lift. I have an OME lift now.
