Try E-Bay, then paint them with Krylon Fusion or better yet coat them with Line-X.

I purchased a set of cheapo's off Ebay and was surprised at how nice they actually were. They fit very well and everything lined up perfect. I think they were about $125 per side shipped. Preped and painted they have been holding up for two years now evne in winter with all the salt. I replaced some junk tube fenders with them.

I just installed my second ebay fender and have no serious complaints. I do recommend if you think you will need two order them at the same time . I replaced one a year or so ago and the one I put on Friday is slightly different shape. I couldn't remember who I bought the first one from and just went by price and feedback on the second one 257. painted stone white and shipped. Problem buying OE used is where they rust they could already be well rusted inside already and you can't see it until it starts getting a brown tint to the surface and by then you have a large amount of rust inside.

I bought a pair from rock auto a few months ago, It was around $250 shipped for the pair. The are thinner than OEM but fit fine, I already got the right one a little beat up but since they were cheap I won't feel bad about hurting them on the trail.

Okay thanks guys, I actually have someone willing to powdercoat noth fenders for me for 40 bucks and the black matches perfectly so I will probably just buy some cheap oe replacements. The fenders are all bubbled. Will the bolts be pretty rusty once i got about replacing them? This is the first jeep i have owned and it needs some body work but has all new drivetrain.

Ditto on what Gary2 said about them rusting from the inside out. They may look fine on the top, but they more than likely will eventually rust on through. This seems to be especially true for the left (drivers side) fender.

I replaced mine with some new ones from Quadratec. Did them back in Nov 2008. Fenders were $234 each at the time plus $22.50 shipping on each one. My local Chevy dealer where I do a lot of business painted them for $325. I tore the old ones off and put the new ones on after they were painted. The body shop manager told me to test fit the new fenders before he painted them so it any holes needed to be drilled, it could be done before painting and not after. They did a terrific job and it really cleaned the Jeep up (the left one was rusted on the top and the right one had a ding in it that had been poorly bumped out by a previous owner).

The tear down and reinstall wasn't terrible, but it was time consuming. There is a lot of stuff on those fenders. The worst part is there is like 15 or 16 bolts that hold the fender to the Jeep. Soak the heck out of them with PB Blaster. I did, but still ended up breaking 4 bolts between the two fenders that needed to be drilled and tapped.

You can get CAPA certified fenders for 80-something bucks per side. I'll find the link when I'm home later today.

You can't powder coat plastic.

I believe he's talking about the fenders and not the fender flares.
