The body colored fenders and MT/R kevlars are gonna look great. I like the way you are building your jeep. Are you gonna get new gears?

Thanks! The last build (car) I did was functional, but not so pretty. I'm trying to give it a clean look while making it rugged and functional.

I do plan on regearing but it's gonna have to wait until spring break, and after the tax return gets here. I would love to find a rubicon d44 carrier to put in my rear d44, but most likely I will throw truetracks front and rear and go 4.56. I'm not decided yet except on 4.56.

I also just got an email from metalcloak that says if I get my jeep in a mag and menchion their company then I would get a free bumper or a $250 gift certificate. I kinda want to try to do this so I can get some rear flares to match the fronts. But for now I'm just gonna have to trim the stock flares.

I'm gonna plan on putting these fenders on tomorrow night. I'm so anxious to put them on. I did a couple different things than the normal install.

First time I've seen metal cloaks painted the color of the rig. I like them soooo much more that way. Good idea to paint them!

Did you paint the fenders? Or can you buy them like that?

What did you use to paint them? It matches the body color perfectly.

I went to a local pain shop and they mixed the paint into an aerosol can. I had no clue before but just google auto paint store and give some shops some calls and ask them if they mix paint into spray cans. There were a few places local to me that mix. You can get your paint code in your door jam.

Just like everyone else said, painting the Metal Cloaks to match the Jeep is one of the best looking things I've seen on this forum. Great Job. Quick Question, are those the 4" fenders?
