I have the older style Rev111 front 4" fenders and love them. I rolled the Jeep a couple of weeks ago and the fenders held up great. A few scratches but nothing bent.

I don't have any pictures with the tires stuffed up in the fenders, but when they do they work great!

My Jeep is a 2005 TJ Rubicon with Full Traction 6" long arm lift, 35x12.5x15 BFG MT. I am running the Gen-Right rear hi line tube fenders and mini boatside sliders.

I've been hunting google and the JF picture gallery for the past hour looking for this same thing! Maybe Matsonian has some.

RallyeX, I'm still in love with your setup. Very nice. It's one of the few Jeeps with a hardtop on it that looked...right...where I could look at it and say, that looks awesome. I normally prefer top down/off.

ahh, must have read right over it. Thanks. And that sucks rally, I saw your jeep in another thread and it was beautiful. Fix her up!

metal cloak fender
stock fender
head on comparison shot
my sloution for having signal lights
My Jeep is a stock 05 Rubicon planning a 3.0" Nth lift and 35 ish tires maybe bigger. Love my fenders and recomend them to everyone I see and have had numerous sompliments on them and theyve only been on my jeep for 2 days. Tires are the stock 31" MTRs that now look ridiculous with the much larger wheel wells, and I have the 6" flares on my Jeep.

Fantastic shots! Thanks for sharing those. As someone who hasn't yet seen these in person, that's very helpful

If he doesn't ask you, you might offer matsonian to use those on his site. Great idea for pics.

What's with those headlights? Custom housing? Got a link?

Yes, great comparison shots jeepman 82. I needed those because I am staying on my current tires until they are used up. If I stumble on a replacement for my D35 rear I may move up to 35s sooner, but for a while the fenders will be going on a Jeep with 33s and 4" of lift, While it looks like they will SWALLOW the tires, they wont look too out of place.

6thelement,
Is that a little LED you used for a side marker just behind your front fender?


Firekite,
You ordered yours black powder coated right? Did you order just fenders, or fenders and flares? Looking for feedback on delivery time.

These aren't the exact ones he has but they are similar and look to be even a bit better, I plan on running them when I make the jump to tube fenders . . . . now if only I could make up my mind as to which company and which flare size if any . . . I'm way too indecisive and it's making my Jeep anxious .

Are those sealed beam headlights? I've done the IPF H4 conversion with their X4 fatboy xenon bulbs, and I wouldn't want to undo that... But yeah, I think those look great

The headlights are actually for my 53 chev street truck. Got them from Chevs of the 40s Store. THey arent a sealed beam but they are an h4 conversion. Plugs right into the factory harness.

Definitely useful shots! I especially like the head on comparison! Thanks for taking the time to do that Eric.

Thanks to a rising flow of sales moving inventory out the door (literally as fast as we can put it on the shelf) most products ship within 3 - 5 days if raw metal, and 7 - 10 days if powdercoated.
