Help, opinions building tube fenders

Hello, I've got a 94 wrangler with quite a bit of lift and I wanna build some tube fenders since I just got a welder. Any ideas or tips on how I should do it? Some photos of your custom built fenders would be awesome. Maybe some instructions too and an idea on how much the metal will cost. I'm asking a lot haha but I'd appreciate any help at all thanks! Here's the what I got

Don't have any pics ill be building mine soon, just do a lot of searching. They sell DIY kits with pre bent tubes where you just weld it all over if you wanna spend 100-250$. Or buying the metal and bending the tubes yourself metal would be around 50-80 i would guess.

If I want a bigger then what Chris posted do you guys think it would be better to just buy some stock fenders and built off them?

Made these a few months ago. Tied into factory fenders to have an inner fender.

I went with the front and rear pre-bent kits from Trailtubes, they're still in process and huge to comply with PA requirements but overall I like em. I tied the rear tubes into the smittybilt wraps after I stripped the finish off them. The stock inner fenders were removed and welded into the fronts after this pic was taken, just need to skin them with 18 gauge and paint.

Thanks! I think I'm going to build them rather then get a kit. What size metal should I use?

I like 14 or 16 ga for the skins.
1.5 in. .120 wall tubing.
If you mitered the ends you could do it without a bender and be different while still looking sweet.

built these for a JK early last year. I know its not a yj, but its the same basic principal. If youve never done any bending, one of the pre-bent kits that you weld together would be my recommendation.

I recently purchased this YJ with the fenders already done, but I really dig the look of them.
