But I can rattle can it for maybe like 20 bucks. I think it's worth a try before a 300 dollar spray fun and compressor job. If rattle can looks bad ill raptor line it for 130 and still spend less than the 300

I could even leave the tape and masking on it and if it doesn't look how I want ill just scuff the flat back paint and spray over it. I'm gonna try to prep it this week and spray it this weekend. Will post pics.

So many thoughts running through my head. If I get these HORE tube fenders ill be able to trim the fack outta my fenders and with a tube fender tire rub isn't bad for the tire. So bigger tires with less lift. I know on the rear I can only trim as far as the pinch seem but with the tube flare rubbing still wouldn't hurt so I think I'm gonna run 35s on a 4.5 inch lift. That should be a good setup and ill bumpstop the rear if needed. My plan is by this summer have a good lift setup at 4.5 inches, have a locker in the rear and front, 4.56 gears, the tube fenders, and finish up this front bumper. And ofcourse all the paint work I'm talking about. Hopefully the dana30 and 8.25 love me and can hold up for the life of the xj because there's really not much more I'd want to do after that. I'm just sitting back thinking about my plans so I thought I'd add it

And is that a RE 3.5? Because they sit high dont they? It's either gonna be 4.5 and 35s or keep my 3 inch and 33s but I wana stay low as possible without hacking my fenders to bad. That's why I want these tubes

So confused on the tube fenders. There's not alot of options out there. Hooligans(HORE) or jeeptubes look to be the best but they both are alot of $. I wish I had the stuff to make my own. I have a welder but no tube bender. Plus making my own would be pointless because I want the skins for the fenders to. Anybody have any ideas? I feel like I could make them myself if I had a tube bender and i think it's called a breaker to put the bends in flat sheets of metal? Idk any opinions?

Those Hooligans ones are pretty nice but 750, but the do come with armor .... Fenders always get in the way and rip off PITA .... I just stick with fender less ....but fenders can look good for sure

I like fender less for that reason but if mine are dented this bad already they will only get worse. And with tube fenders I could actually have a wide stance like I want and be closer to legal. I like tj flares because they are cheap and get the job done allowing clearance but I'd still dent the **** outta my fenders.
