    EVO Fenders...

    Have a question and maybe not the right thread but do the EVO fenders include reinforcement so they are not just mounted to sheet metal?? I tried to look up the installation instructions but that link seems to be broken. I know some of the other manufacturers use some reinforcement to make the fenders really strong.

    I know most of you will say to just cut my stock fenders and call it a day... But I do really like the look of the tube fenders...

    Thanks,

    Okay, well maybe this is lame but perhaps i save the grand on fenders and get double throwdown coilovers for the front...

    Anyone know how well the double throwdown coilover front setup would work with the more traditional RK rear setup?

    Are you planning on adding the evo-lever rear? If not, the DTD front alone would be a colossal waste, in my opinion. You could go with front and rear coil overs for a tad more than just the front dtd alone.

    Yeah, that would be the end goal.... just figure it may be several months before i have the coin to finish with the DTD lever rear....

    The EVO fenders do have some reinforcement to them and look great However, I would still cut the fenders

    If it's only going to be several months, hold up and do it all at once. Or, go with the bolt on kit if your not planning on speed

    In that case, I would buy it and set it aside. Or keep saving and do it all at once. That's what I had to do. My build came to a point where the next step would be a big one so I just kept saving to make one big purchase. I havent bought anything for my Jeep in almost a year (the horror!) but it will be worth it.

    On the other hand, maybe you could just put it on. I was watching the Moab, Fork Yeah video yesterday and there is a red 2-door with what looks like DTD front and regular springs/shocks in the back. He seemed to be doing fine.

    Here, I found it:

    Yeah i was thinking it probably should do fine.... i am just curious if anyone had any experience with that type of setup. I do recall there was an RK kit that was set up that way before with them having some strange justification that coilovers dont do well with the weight always changing (being in the rear would bring high amounts of various load from things like camping gear, lots of passengers, the english mastiff, etc...) When i tried asking others they felt that wss a stupid idea and a quick wrench adjusts cpilovers anyways...

    They have 2 reinforcement points. You can check my build thread out I have a couple photos of them installed. I think cut fenders look decent and for most are perfect, but they just don't suit the areas I wheel with lots of brush and small trees that rip fenders off constantly where steel fenders push it out of the way.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
