Fender Flares- PSC Narrow Aluminum vs Nemesis Notorious?

Debating between these two companies for front and rear fender flares when I make the step up to a JKUR. Definitely want aluminum. Great looks on both companies from several rigs I've seen. Which pair should I get. Only going to be running 35s. Give me pros and cons of both you guys. Thanks.

Sounds like a plan. Of course I could save a hunk of money by going with the PSC narrow aluminum.

I plan on getting the poison spider fenders. I really like the look of those.

The defender type(made of formed plate.) I have seen them bend much easier than the older Tube type(crushers.) The alu. ones as well wont take rocks as well.

I have the Narrow PSC metal crushers. the are very good. have yet to harm them other than rock rash.

Won't be taking on rocks with this jeep. Mild trails and DD. would go with the crushers.

Don't the nemesis have reinforced areas to preven the JK "fender fold?" I always thought this was the advantage of nemesis besides being (from what I've seen of both products) better constructed?

as do the PSC. ^


If you think a folded plate is going to wear as well as dom. Great. I live in an area thats is NOTHING but rocks that eat Jeeps. One issus with Nem fenders is they are to wide at the bottom and get caught on that HERE. Psc are very narrow at the bottom.

To each thier own.

Yes, they're also constructed of 3/16ths 6061-t6, which the PSCs are not

The nemesis are pretty narrow at the bottom

I've been debating between the PSC, Nemesis, and Metalcloak flares for a while now. I think they are all great products, but after calling each of the companies, for me, it is really down to Metalcloak and PSC. That decision is going to boil down to the direction I take my build.

I'm not really sure how calling PSC kept them in the running for you, I've been nothing but disappointed with their call center

Also surprised to hear that calling nemesis dropped them from your list. My conversations with Ian and Rob have always been nothing but pleasant and educating

Maybe I caught them on a bad day or something but I had the complete opposite experience. PSC was great. The guy at Nemesis was kind of a jerk and started badmouthing PSC and Metalcloak as soon as I mentioned them. It just turned me off.
