So the new version of the flareless tubes have the holes on the ends closed now? Or is that just for the flare to be added on?

The basic fender (without a flare) has a threaded hole in a solid steel receiver for securing the flare at the grill. To keep the hole clean of particulates, some customers keep a bolt tightened in its place.

Do you have to order directly from you or are you working with shops and vendors such as 4WParts? I ask because I like to order through a local company, pay them to install it, and I gain double protection - if something goes wrong, they are liable in addition to you... Thanks.

Ditto, I was able to complete the front and rear in about 4hours for each end. And I like to take my time when I work. I wonder how long the rockers will take...

Matsonia, I had some questions about the tube fenders (without flare) do the revised tube fenders look just like the one Storm Trooper has?
Do the revised ones resolve the hood touching issue that storm tropper has?
Once we get them, are we able to drill holes and place LED marker turn signal lights in them? Click this for perfect example or is there no room for that?
Are we able to use stock battery or is aftermarket necessary? What about stock air box?
Are holes pre-drilled on the fenders to place the under hood components back onto?
If we opt for the powdercoated black semigloss option on your site does that also include the inner fender linning be painted?
Any ETA on when you guys are going to make aluminum tube fenders?
What is THIS plate for that sits behind the fender?
Thanks in advance!

The new rockers were done by a customer in about 30 minutes.

MetalCloak is building our network of Jobbers across the country, but the program is in its infancy. If there is an independent Jobber in your area, one with a great reputation for quality installs, send over a referral and we will be happy to sign them up.

Taking your questions in order...

Yes, the revised Tube Fenders are same as StormTroopers. The hood touching issue comes from two factors... our desire to have the sharpest possible angle for clearance, and the variability of sheet metal hoods. Not all hoods touch, but some do. We will be including with our packages a method of protecting the hood from the tube, something R&D is working on now.

As for the LEDs, how you modify the Tube Fenders is up to you, though it is not something we recommend or advise on. We are working to offer other marker light options besides the bullet.

You can use all your stock components including battery, etc, and yes, all the holes are pre-drilled for your convenience of installation.

The inner fender liner is aluminum so we do not powdercoat it.

That is an access plate both for ease of installation and for accessing other components that one may install on or around the battery/package trays.

As for Aluminum fenders, we are looking into it, but as mentioned before, it is based on market demand.

Thank you for the great questions!

Will the method for protecting the hood that R&D is coming up with be available to purchased separately for those of use who have already purchased fenders from you?
