No I just dont like the look of metal cloaks. TNT's are the only full replacement tube I know of (besides metal cloak). I think these are a really nice product.

Edit: I forgot Rokmen's are full replacements also but they're highlines and require welding.

Your a lucky dog then, around here they pull a yard stick and a tape measure out and check your tire coverage at inspection time. 4" of tire aloud to show and thats it. I need to find someone to inspect my junk if you know what i mean and hell yeah man those fenders look nasty, i like them 110% more than metal cloaks.

So TnT's dont' cover the side of the engine bay like the OEM's do? I'll be looking to go with a full replacement tube fender, but I want coverage to hide the motor and all.

It's because they don't have the rubber fender liner like the stock ones do. You can trim the liner and bolt it on if you want to..I was thinking of doing this.

I am in the market for racelines, where did you find yours at? Did you shop for the best price? Did you mount them or did you have a shop do it? Thanks.

Love the Jeep, very well done, great mods. love it!

I got them from rdmoffroad.com use coupon code facebook and I think they ended up being $266 each with free shipping. That was the best price I found

I had a shop mount them because I didn't want to break down the tires off the steelies and end up cutting a sidewall.

Nova Jeepers has their annual Camp Heep wheeling trip at Rausch Creek every summer. It's always a good time..here's a few pics from the weekend.

The Jeep wheeled really well and nothing broke so I was happy. I ran the tires at 5 psi and they grab really good on the rocks, a big difference than the 11psi before the beadlocks. Got to check out the north east side of the park for the first time too. I got to run the Walk in the Park trail for the first time, no pics though. That was a really good black trail with some big *** rocks.

Here's a few videos my dad took of me on Camelback. He was moving around so the camera isn't too steady

Thanks, I really like it a lot better too. Never have to worry about hitting trees with the front fenders anymore because the tire will climb them before the fender ever hits.
