Metel Cloak replacement inner fender flares with Ace wide flares?

Anyone know if this setup will work? I am going to get some of the new Ace wide flares but I really wnat some inner protection still. Is there another way to get some?

I think rugged ridge makes some too. Any protection would be good though.

i have the rugged ridge, they are pretty good but at full stuff my tires rub on the bracket for your factory turn signal, which kinda blows. would like to see how the metal cloak ones are, when i go with their fenders maybe ill buy

Check out Gen Right. They are offering replacement inner fenders for some Jeeps now. Even has a version to cover a 1" body lift.

I know with the Narrow ACE fenders, you can run the stock inner fenders. I am sure the wide would not be a issue either. It is pretty easy to do. You have to get a little creative with the lower mount but I usually just zip tie it up. It works quite well!

I installed the year inners today. What a pain. I had to modify all but two hols cause they were far from lining up. I cut two 2x2 hols in it for the two holes that do not have nutserts. It was a pain, you have to get a little creative but it's worth it. It's a lot cleaner look over cut factory flares.


Due to all of the mounts for the front having nuts and bolts, I'm going to have to pull the front fenders to install the front inners. Will give an update when I do
