Tire carrier came open = quarter panel dent

Well while bouncing around in the snow tiring to navigate around a stuck vehicle so I could help them my tire carrier came open swung around and smacked the passenger side panel right above the tire. Damage is not bad as the 35" tire is all that made contact with the Jeep just a minor crease. So I been wanting a set of rear corner armor guess now is a good time. The best looking set I have seen on the market is Poison Spyder Customs. But if I am gonna get them I want to do it quickly as like most I am concerned about the quality once the new owners start taking over.

The other though is I have been wanting a set of overland fenders from Metal Cloak no one has been able to confirm or deny if they will work together. From all the installation reading I have read sounds like they will the PSC crusher corers do not affect the stock mounting holes for the fenders and the overlander fenders use the stock holes plus two new holes.

Anyone have any complaints about the PSC corners? I know install will be tuff but nothing I have not done before.

That's one thing I love about my jcr bumper. It has a spring loaded plunger that stops it from swinging open past 90 deg and also holds the tailgate open when on a hill. Who bought PSC? I was looking at the or-fab rear corners with the slider

I mashed my rear corner and was in the same position, except I have Genright fenders......i compared a couple rear corner guards and noticed they all lined up perfectly with the stock fenders. I chose the AEV corner armor and there is a really small gap where everything meets up, because the Genright fenders sit just a touch lower.
I guess my point is to ask PSC if their fenders sit where the stock fenders sit, or if the sit higher or lower, and work from there
