Pros Very strong, opens up wheel well, installation is fairly fool proof with no body modifications needed
Cons They're spendy, but you're getting a hell of a product for that money
Recommended yes

Comments: Haven't had them very long yet, but so far I love them. I've got a 6" flare on mine and they look great, and really open up the wheel well to give you a lot of room for tires, even without a lift. Installation took maybe 10 hours or so, but that was with a lot of breaks. If you've messed with fenders before, or just work straight through you can do it a lot faster. It cost me a few bucks, and I probably have a lot more responsible things I should have kept that money for, but hey it was definitely worth it in my opinion. They're very functional, and very good looking.

Pros VERY STRONG
Welds well done
Fantastic construction
EASY installation
Cons Expensive
Recommended yes

Comments: $1200 shipped for Overlines with 6" flares. Don't hesitate, these are fantastic fenders and look amazing in person. Totally unique to my area, and very functional. I use a 2" lift with 33" KM2s which is perfect for these. These fenders are stronger than most anything else on my Jeep. They fit PERFECTLY and require minor adjustment to fit correctly. (don't forget to push the inner fenders in on the front as far as you can when you adjust them or the sway bar will contact it, not an issue). Price is expensive, but the build quality is amazing, you will NOT be disappointed.

Pros These gave my tires a lot more room to flex and are very strong.
Cons I havent found any but for my cj i needed to do some moving around on the inside of the fender well with all the components.
Recommended yes

Comments: These are some great fenders, little pricey but very strong and giving a lot of wheel room. I have a Cj on a 2 1/2 inch lift and have 35 under it, proabably about 5 inches of up travel.

Pros allows fitment of larger tires. More clearance of the fenders allows tighter trails.
Cons Self Install and have to remove complete older fender and then bolt all the stuff to the new fender..ok not really a con but hey I had to write something..lol
Recommended yes

Comments: A great REPLACEMENT fender. No cutting and no drilling. Simply unbolt the stuff on your old fenders, Take off the old ones, Bolt up the MetalCloaks and then attach the stuff back to the predrilled holes. Then put some larger rubber on and hit the trail. Check out my build thread of the install.

Pros slick look and very sturdy great customer service called me within 2-3hrs of order to tell me powdercoat would take a little extra time
Cons expensive
Recommended yes

Comments: They are tough and look good at the same time.Also weren't to hard to put on as they use stock bolt holes so no drilling. Cant wait to put the rear ones on though i gotta cut a little so i can make room for bigger tires.

Pros Easy to install, look fantastic.
Cons Let tires throw mud up when you drive fast.
Recommended yes

Comments: I chose to go with the lighter but more expensive aluminum ones to save weight $799.00 vs $599.00 for metal.
The cost of the fenders is initially a high until you install them. The ease in which they bolt on and the fact that you don't have to cut up, weld and paint your stock fenders or buy a diffrent intake to make them work was a real bonus for me. The flairs are purchased seperatly and add any where from $139 for the rub rail, $229 for the 4" or $249.00 for the 6"

Pros Very well built, easy to install, flare is removable, strong
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: They look great and perform flawlessly. The powder-coat holds up better than any I have ever seen. They are very strong. They eat rocks and trees for breakfast. I'll be honest, I didn't like the look of the overlines at first, but they grew on me and now I love them!

Pros Solid, relatively painless install, well built in the US, free shipping coupons available from time to time
Cons Really a two-person job to install, not one as advertised
Recommended yes

Comments: Fenders came "in the white" and will require blasting and prime/paint of course and mount up fairly well with minor fitting and an extra pair of hands. Some mounting holes were needed for ABS pump and other accessories on my 95 YJ Sahara, easy fix. The un-used holes make for A LOT of egress points for water/mud in the engine compartment, for the price they should include hole plugs but it's a cheap enough fix. Got creative and mounted a bottle jack to factory scissor jack location. On the MOD CUT option for my YJ, I opted to leave my fender well liners in and just cut them to fit as well. Removing them is an option but if you want to dampen noise and don't want to ahve to line the wells, you'll need to do some minor cutting. Would purchase again.

Pros Quick removable, the clearance, look damn good, cover my 12.5" tires as per law requires where i live
Cons Rears could be easier to put back on (very minor).
Recommended yes

Comments: I've rubbed them off a few things since i had them on and have only scuffed the powder coat. Matches the rest of the jeep now. But they are well built, fit like they should and look fantastic while doing so. My opinion is you can't get better than these.
