Is the Sahara fender different than sport or x fenders?

Let me point out that I am talking about the inner metal fender. Not the flare.
My passenger side fender is rusting through from what seems like the middle of the fender. I can't find any rust on the under side of it yet there's almost a pit on the top of it from where I have sanded it down to get rid of rust in one area.

Anyways, my question is are the Sahara fenders different than other trim model fenders? I don't see why there would be a difference but I found a fender on amazon and it specifically points out that it is a jeep wrangler/Sahara fender.

No, there's no difference. If you look underneath you will see what i think is an reinforcement plate that leaves a 1/4" gap where water and crud collect and rust the fender from the inside out. It has openings on the corners but its not enough to keep em dry and clean, every time i wash my Jeep i put the nozzle up to the opening on the corner of reinforcement and blow water thru to keep it clean.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

Thanks, thought that was the case, wanted to confirm it.
Wondered what that plate was. Good idea for washing it. Wish it was possible to remove that plate. doesn't look too easy.

Some mounting points for accessories and holes differ from year to year on TJ inner fenders...

Tub mounting holes should be the same, no?

Yes, but early grill mounts may differ...

Could be, i wouldnt kbow. The oldest I've owned was an 01 60th Anniversary but have not taken off the fenders or done pretty much any kind of body work. Im pretty familiar with 03-04 from owning both.

I'll have to just match it by looks or find one locally to test it.
