Smittybilt XRC Fenders?

I was checkin out the new Smittybilt XRC Fenders (Front and Rear) and I cant really tell on the websites (Quadratec or Smittybilt) if they are actually full replacement fenders or just add on flares? Do you just unbolt the front fenders and replace them or do you leave the stock fenders on, cut them all up and add the Smittybilt Fenders to the original stock. Also on the rear, do you pull off your old stock plastic fender flares and bolt on the new Smittybilts or is it a full blown new fender flare and wrap around rocker panel to cover the original tub and quarter panel?

The front tube fenders maintain the factory wheel-well. You place a template on your stock fender and hack it to pieces and the Smitty bolts on to it. As for the rear armor, the fenders and corner armor are seperate pieces. The flare(sold seperately) bolts to the corner armor.

Gotcha, not sure if I wanna hack away at my stock fenders. Id rather just replace them so I could sell them and make some money back. Does any company make full on replacement tube fenders. I know TnT Customs does....

As far as the rear fenders go, you have to buy the corner armor first and then the flare separate to bolt on? You cant just buy the flares and bolt them to a stock tub? If that is the case it's super misleading on quadratec and 4wd.com.....
