JK Overline Tube Fenders by MetalCloak

This thread was just posted in the Vendor Marketplace...

Quote:
As many of you know, our founding company, Rev111, was not only the innovators behind the incredible Arched Tube Fenders, but, as it turns out, they were also recognized as the first developer of Tube Fenders for the JK.

While, as MetalCloak, we never took those JK fenders (as seen on Xtreme 4x4) into production, it was great to know we had such awesome heritage.

Like everything we do, we knew we could develop a better fender for the JK. So we returned to the drawing board, applied all the lessons learned from users across the country over the last couple years and developed from the ground up our new, incredibly rugged, JK Body Armor system.



Designated the Overline, the fenders are truly a hybrid of the Arched and the Overline fenders, breaking the rules and following non-traditional lines.



Once again, we've achieved the most clearance in the industry by raising the fender and flare ABOVE the stock flare lines of the JK. The Red Rubi is running 37" Good-Year MTRs on a Stock Rubicon -- that's no lift.



The quick release removable flares come in 8" (1" over stock width) and 5" (2" below stock width). With the flare removed the fenders have a built in rub rail.



Using the internal bracing seen here, our fenders achieve the same level of rugged rock-biting strength that has been proven time and again with our other product lines.



The MetalCloak Body Armor system for the JK includes the distinctive Rocker Rail, with build in deflector plates and optional MetalCloak Exo-Skins (not seen in this pic).



The rear Quick Release removable flares, bolt directly onto a rugged Exo-Skin that gives just the right about of extreme clearance. Additional bracketry (not shown here) creates our trademark rock-biting strength.



So there you have it -- finally -- Rock-Biting Body Armor for your JK.

Additional product information will go live on our website on Monday, October 11.

We are in pre-order mode, so please call to place your order at 916-631-8071.

We look forward to your feedback!

Ruby dana44's front sleeved inside/outside C truss and rear with 5.13's gears. Homemade rock guards, rear bumper w/tire carrier, oilpan/tranny skid, evap canister skid, light bar, switch pod.

That's a very cool product, loving the added tire celarance. I'm a big fan of the lcog route when it comes to building a rig and these seem to fit the bill rather nicely. I know they aren't going to be cheap judging from their tj prices but you get what you pay for. Nicely done.

2008 JK X 2-door, 37" MTRK's, Xenon narrows, 3" Synergy frankenlift, Prorock 44 front with 5.13's/rcv's/rubi locker, Rock Jock 60 rear w/ 5.13's and a Detroit, and lots of armor...

Those are cool and all, but what about the break over clearance for the 4doors? Seems like you still would need to lift it for serious wheeling.

I'm lovin' em. Although, I'm not completely convinced it's a stock suspension. My Rubicon didn't come with external lockouts, and I can not get that kind of droop, even with the swaybar disconnected.

The external locks are because we tow the vehicle regularly. Because of the LCG we had to replace the front axel we did not feel the stock would hold up. We did not add any lift for these pictures. But since these pics we have added a custom 2" RE lift for the pomona offroad expo.

I think the second picture has a lift installed, or at least bumpstop extensions. Look at the shiny bit on the axle end of the spring.

Yeah it does look like a bumpstop extension for sure.

Sorry guys no lift, we really have no reason to deceive or you would just be disappointed when you purchased the product...what you see is the standard machined plastic bump plate that comes with the dynatrac axle. Stock is formed black sheet metal.
