PSC (Poison Spyder Custom) flat fender install review...

1997 TJ 4.0


1 out of 10

Durability: 9
Instructions: 7 (could use more pictures/better quality)
Ease of Installation: 7 (about 3-4 hours, taking breaks from the heat)
Fitment: 5
Looks: 9
Customer service: 9

Would I buy them again: At the price, no, I would look else where


I just bought and install the standard PSC flat fenders and thought I would share my experiences with it. After getting the fenders, I had the instructions and must have read them 20 times. More pictures would have helped so I can see how the fender (how it connects to the firewall) was cut and how it should look. I wasn't 100% sure on the cutting so I had to call and right away the person who helped my did a fairly good job, very nice over the phone and did they best that the could. So, after looking for pictures, and seeing how some did it, I went at it. I printed out the template and taped it all up and stuck it down on the fender. Traced out the lines and cut out the fender with a 4 1/2" cutting wheel. ONE thing to remember if you are going to buy them, cut the pattern 1/4 longer on top. Trust me it will help things make sure everything is covered once the fender goes on. After all the cutting was done I unscrewed the fenders off (it was to unscrew first but I found that it helps keep the fender rigid so it is easier to cut) Then I got my first fender and stated to bolt it on. It didn't go on that easy, I had to push bang and hit the thing to line up. On the passenger side I had to use a jack to level the fender with the body. After the rear (near the firewall 4 bolts) and the 4 bolts in the fender well was on loosely I was going to bolt the front up to the grill and like others have said WOW it was WAYYYY off like 3 inches, so I grabbed the old strap and pulled to close enough to get the bolts in. Again the passenger side was much more off then the drivers side. So over all the fenders look great but for the price I wouldn't buy them again, I would look at others. (pics coming soon) Also, and maybe it is just me, but I thought the fenders would give much more clearance but I was surprised that it didn't seem like much (if any) was given. Didn't take any measurements just eyeballing it (so take it with a grain of salt)


A few things I noticed, the 4 bolts on the firewall are a PIA to bolt up, even more so on the passenger side. You must cut part of the battery box way and remove the battery to install the bolts.

PSC is a great company and make quality stuff, I was just disappointed with the fitment of the fenders.

I own a few things from PSC ,but when it comes to tube fenders, I'll go elsewhere. The design is just outdated and they are too expensive for what you get. There are other hack job tube fenders out there for half the price.

I've got there fenders and will say they are pricey, but they are high quality. As far as comparing them to the $200 Ebay cheapies, I won't even go there, because in my opinion there isn't much to compare beyond they are both fenders.
