What brand are these? They look nice, and I have experience putting tube fenders on, as you know.

Those are mce fenders
I have the flareless version on my wife's yj and I love them
But 350 bucks seam really steep for a plastic flare in my opinion
250 maybe but not more then that

Modern Classic Enterprise... they seem pretty easy, just have to man up and cut apart my existing fenders.

I like the look, but really wanted to wait for the flared version. Glad to hear you like them, and I totally agree... I was thinking they'd charge around $200-250 for them since the normal ones are only $180. I just don't want to spend the money on MetalCloaks or TNT tubes, and don't really want Smittybilt for them. I like the small-town business of the MCE group and would like to support them. Guess we'll see about the pricing.

I think they'd look sweet. I know I need to get the tummy situation settled and SYE installed, but after that I want a mod that really has an outward and noticeable appearance change with the technical advantage of flex and clearance.

I just realized I hadn't put any pictures up of the trail ride our club went on this past weekend. Since we just founded the club in May, this was the first time we'd gotten (almost) everyone out and on a trail. The group consisted of 5 TJs, 1 YJ, 1 JK, 1 JKU Islander edition, and a built XJ. Three of those rigs were stock, so there were some points where caution and care were taken making sure that peoples differentials, TC skids, and gas tanks remained attached to the rigs.

While I'd love to say we did some hard core stuff, we didn't. It was a Class VI road that was up on the NH/ME line up by UNH. Whatever though, cause it was the first time I'd been able to taken my TJ out since the re-build in June. I had a great time, and she walked over everything with ease. Only problem I had was that I needed to climb onto the ground to shift to 4WD... easy when we got there, and a PAIN IN THE BUTT when the whole rig was caked in mud on the way out.

So the NOVAK is a priority. As is the tummy tuck. But this rig kicked some *** and Steph and I had an absolute blast.

Awesome pics. When I get the 4WD fixed, you need to show me where these trails are.

Absolutely. I'm sure we could find a day you had off from work and you Clay and I could go up... I was talking to a guy with a TJ that we met on the trail that day and he told me there were a ton of other trails right down the road that we could have hit up so there is in fact more than just that one.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the rig
Looks like you had fun
Now get a group out my way
You will love the Novak shifter
I loved mine on my 241

And as for the mce's
I can fit a 33" swamper on my wife's stock yj with those flares
They are awesome and would by the flareless version again
If the price comes down on the flared version I would get that instead
Only problem with my swampers was I had 10" of tire sticking out past The flares hahaha

I was under it today checking out my transfer case linkage break and tightening the shock bolts at the rear axle mount, and when I rolled out from underneath, I saw that my (full size) dog was hanging out waiting for me to be done in the shade of the Jeep. I told him to stay put and ran in to grab my camera. Pup turns 11 in November.
