R11 MetalCloak Fenders

Didn't want to take Slc's Brute Kit only thread off track (Not that it isn't already...), so I'm making this here. I don't know about you guys, but I think this looks mean as hell. I can't wait till I can afford some of these.

Most of the people on here have given negative opinions of them already but Im with you. I think they are the new sliced bread.

Apparently, the flares are bolt on (lame), so if I end up getting the package deal with front, rear, and sliders, I'll just have them all welded together. Hopefully that might make them a bit more structurally sound.

I think if I went with that I would just go with the fronts but yeah I do agree with the welding together.

Im not a fan of the arched front fenders or the rivet look. Looks like an ATV.

I would like them better if they didn't arc up over the hood line. Check out the AEV highline kit.

I don't like them at all.

There's many home fab jobs out there that look much cleaner, for example what Tommaho recently did:

I think the fenders in the first pic would look tremendously better and more TJ like if they were painted solid black instead of the red.

grewe there is this thing called search, helps alot



but seriously there isnt alot of tire coverage, plus as it comes down in the back the flare narrows, meaning more stuff gets thrown at you

I like this a lot too. I am thinking of doing fender similar to this look that ties to the body and I will have my body shop buddy roll the lip on the hood. just cant scratch together the time to do it right now

Thanks, Wheelin.

Here are mine with wings and lights, btw:






I guess the REV111 setup is ok if you need a bolt-on, but I'm not a big fan of it. I'd have to reserve judgement until I see it up close, but what I have seen just doesn't impress me. YMMV, of course.

Awhile back a guy had some of these for sale on here. Didnt have the flares for the front or rear though. When I checked to see how much they cost my jaw dropped. These are way out of my budget. I like the idea that you can remove the flares though. Then you would have more clearence offroad but have the ability to make your jeep street legal for us that also use our jeeps as DDs.

My two cents, I installed a set yesterday. They are easy to install. Personally, I think they look like heck, but function over form in this case. I went with them as I'm running 35's on a RE3.5SF lift and no body lift. It is a well crafted kit judging from the ease of installation. The packing job at the factory leaves a lot to be desired tho', they did arrive chewed up somewhat, but oh well.

Steve, how do they look in the front? Does that huge bump actually give tire clearance by the hood? Or is it just a 90* angle that looks like crap?
