Agreed. Those overlines are much nicer than the arched ones. I just think that arch is unsightly and ruins the lines of a Jeep.

I've always like the idea of the Metalcloaks, but never seen them in person, and was thinking a Savvy alternative might eventually be developed.

Wade
This has been something I have been keeping my eyes out for. I have considered the Metalcloaks, so maybe this will be the deciding factor. Would like to see a traditional style "tube fender" that is Aluminum, the choices are slim. Would also like to see something like that, that does not allow the tub to twist or bend if you knock them around a little bit. I will be keeping my eyes on this to see how it turns out!

I'm with Luckrider on this issue as well. Metalcloaks seem to take away the lines of the Jeep too much. Would like to see something that retains the lines a bit more!

You can't, unless you're willing to give up clearance. The Overlines are great, and a fantastic compromise.

Agreed! I only need a little bit more clearance going up at full articulation. The Overlines will give me the necessary clearance I need which is only .5 to .75 more. The Overlines actually give you more which is really nice. The bigger problem with the OEM fenders is the back where the tires gets stuffed the Metalcloak fenders really shine there with alot more room. The inner fenders are a real bonus.

Notice he's not commenting on the Savvy fenders... he doesn't want to get Blaine on his butt

Sorry Gerald, I had to give you a little jab there!

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process.

No doubt! I think a god design for fender, that Blaine likes, might be a while in the works. That's not a simple task, me thinks.

I've seen the idea behind the tire carrier. Pretty nice. I can't wait to see the rest of it.

If they come in soon enough, Gerald wants to get them on in time for the Off Road Expo. Which is less then a month away.

How well do those rancho shocks ride? stiffer because of the bigger diameter? they look like they are meant for a full size truck

The shocks are fantastic! The best i've had under the LJ so far. Let me see, I've had Procomp MX6s, Skyjackers, Bilsteins, and Ranchos (in two flavors.) these are actually designed for a Ford F150. The larger diameter imakes the dampening more consistent and less prone to fade as there is a lot more oil. The adjustment of the shocks is currently at 0 and I have set the back to 3 when it was loaded down for the Rubicon.

These do take some work to get under the Jeep. You have to outboard the rear and the front mounts were shaved and moved to the lower control arm brackets. We could do that because we have a Currie F9 up front. The cool thing is I have at least 5" of up travel so going over the wash boards and fun stuff is not so bad!

It rides very nice on short arms and 35s. I'm guessing a F150 is around 4500 to 5000lbs? Anybody know?
