XRC armor fenders with Aries inner fender liners????

I really need some help. Hopefully someone out there has done this before. I just installed the Smittybilt XRC armor fenders both front and rear along with the body cladding on my 2017 Rubicon. Now that they're installed I see im really needing front fender liners. I really like the Aries inner fender liners but don't know if they'll work with the XRC fenders. Absolutely nothing I read is helping me either. I called Aries but some lady left me on infinite hold so I thought I'd tey here before calling back. From what I see i think they might fit, but am not too sure. Does anyone have the answer to this??? Thx

according to SmittyBuilt, the inner liners are included.

I have the fenders, and liners, but they were on there before I owned it, so I can say what liners they are.

looking at the pics i would say no, they look like the original fender is what they attach to.

i have the ace engineering lines, they work. but there is the gap left between the liners and the new fenders

Looks to me like they would work with just about any fender that mounts up to the flange in the recess. May need some trimming or additional bolt holes (the liner set between the fender and body will mis-align some holes) - drill, die grinder and or belt sander - and would see the material reflected in body paint when viewed from the top so paint match kinda matters - no more so than running a gasket there. To fit my PS it looks like I would have to lengthen the upper bracket cutout - to clear the add-in bracket.
