Will the new inner fenders work with the stock air box?
We're not sure yet. Our guess is probably, but with some work. But we won't be able to confirm that until we are able to do a test install on a stock one, and I can't say when that will happen. These will probably go on sale beginning tomorrow (8/20/13), with a caveat regarding the stock air box, in the product description.
The TJ DeFender standard height (non-highline) Inner Fender Kits are now available! Now you can do a complete DeFender installation without having to retain and cut the stock inner fenders.
We've installed them on several TJ's with different configurations so far. And what we can say at this point is that we've been able to find a home for everything under the hood, with these installed. Even the stock air box. In the first two shots below, with the stock air box, you can see we had to tweak the grille support rod a bit. But that's because that particular Jeep has a tall coilover shock mount located directly underneath the air box. With a stock shock mount it shouldn't be a problem.
Poison Spyder DeFender Inner Fender Kits are now available in a VENTED version. The Vented inner fenders help promote airflow through the engine bay, which can be important for slow-moving crawlers in hot climates. The Vented Inner Fender Kit is identical to our regular "Solid" Inner Fender Kit, except that the main center panel has a honeycomb vent pattern that has been CNC laser cut into it.
The vented panels are available in a complete kit for those doing a new DeFender Inner Fender Kit installation. The vented panels by themselves are also available separately for those who already have an existing DeFender Solid Inner Fender Kit installed, but would like to convert to vented.
TJ DeFenders, with a 5" flare are now available for those who need extra tire coverage to satisfy local laws or just to keep more mud from slinging.
Poke around on our site and you'll also see we now have matching 5" Rear DeFender Flares in both weld-on and bolt-on styles, as well as Crusher Corners for TJ and LJ with integrated 5" DeFender Flares. Here are links to specific items:
