Replacement fender question

The wife had a little incident with her 04 Wrangler this evening and now the pass side fender has a character mark shes not to keen on. It more or less just crumpled the frt face of it. Are there any good aftermarket ones available or is it dealer or junkyard time? Also is that a bolt on fender or welded on piece? Thanks in advance for any help

Alright - time for an upgrade!!!

Here's a couple of pics of my Gen-Right tube fenders. I like them.

Thanks for the tube ideas but this is more of a d/d non lifted original looking Jeep that my wife drives.

Aftermarket fenders will cost a minimum of 150, plus shipping, WITH a body shop hookup. Add about 200 plus for install. Then add about 300 for paint. Ask her if she think it's worth 700 bucks. Yeah, that's for ONE. Dealer cost, over a grand all told.

The fender is a bolt on, but it's non-trivial, and takes a good while.

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

Not overly conserned with install or paint as I can do that. Its just I play with old thunderbirds and not normally a jeep as this is her toy. I am just trying to decide if its worth my time to fix it or leave it as a character mark.
