My CJ has been Metalcoaked!!!

I finally got the time to put the front fenders on my Jeep. I did the rear flares a while ago. I am now "Cloaked" front and rear!

The fronts went on REALLY easy. I did have to trim the inner fenders to allow for my headers and steering shaft (GM tilt). If my Jeep was stock, they would have bolted right on without any mods.

Anyway, I snapped a couple of quick cell phone pics in the driveway. Just wanted to show them off and see what you guys think...

These are the 4 inch flares. Jeep has narrow track axels with 1 1/4 inch wheel spacers...

Your rig looks good stem to stern. Those fenders add a nice touch. I assume those come with the inner fender? Are they squared up or round (pressed) like the stockers? I will have to run some sort of inner due to all the "stuff" attached to them.

Thanks for the props!

Yes they come with inner fenders. To install you remove the old fenders completely. (If anyone wants some '73 fenders, I got some for sale) The new inner fenders give a ton of more room, especially behind the tires. The inners are squared up (kinda) and are flat on top with a little more mounting room on top and on the back side. My MSD ignintion mounted well on the top of the passenger side. I can shoot you some pics of the inners if you want...

Awesome jeep I'm cloaking my cj7. I have pass side done now and will be doing drivers side soon when temp allows it. I also did the rocker guards with metalcloak. Was extremely pleased with their quality and customer service.

Here are a few pics of the inner fenders. Trying this straight from my phone, so sorry if it doesn't work...

Drivers side, looking down the back. You can see where I trimmed for the steering shaft and headers

Oh ya, those are nice. Amazing how much room you have in the well. I have a extreme air comp mounted on my pass side, looks like it would work fine. I like the color, did you paint them?

My buddy painted the fenders and inners. I got the flares powdercoated by MetalCloak...

Now that things have shook into place, I am dealing with a little rubbing of the hood and the tube part of the fenders... I did a little grinding on the hood (ouch) and the fenders to fix this. The rubbing was happening right where the tube comes up over the hoodline.
