Product development on the High-Line version of our DeFender product line is in full swing!
This is the "Negative Flare" version of our prototype High-Line DeFender for TJ (it will also be available in Zero Flare and 3" Flare versions). Note that it moves the top of the fender up to the horizontal ridge in the side of the hood/cowl to provide massive tire clearance. The back of the wheel opening is also much further back than stock. This is an unfinished prototype piece we made for doing some initial fitment. The final version will be much more refined.
The lines of the High-Line DeFenders will flow nicely with the Jeep's grille.
A sheetmetal inner fender will be available for the High-Line DeFender, mocked up here in cardboard (for those of you wishing for an inner fender option for our regular DeFenders, that will be forthcoming as well).
As with other manufacturers' highline fenders, these will require trimming the bottom edges of your stock hood or purchasing an aftermarket hood designed to work with high-lines. We are thinking of offering our own high-line compatible hood in fiberglass.
I'll post up more photos and info as they become available. And for those of you still waiting for us to finish up the YJ and CJ regular DeFenders, those are pretty much done, just waiting on final revisions and assembly fixturing.
