    I went with the Nemesis Notorious. They are aluminum. Yes they are expensive. As for cutting into your tires, they shouldn't even touch your tire if your bumps are set up right.20190614_163000.jpg20190608_122922.jpg

    I went with Poison Spyder aluminum crusher flares, standard width. I have had them for 6-7 years now and love them. Took them off my 12, powder coated them a different color and put them on my 18. This go around I put on their front fender liners as well. IMG_1631.jpgIMG_1654.jpgIMG_1632.jpgIMG_1652.jpg

    Why do you want flat fenders? Do you have clearance issues with the 35s and factory flares now, or do you plan to try putting 37" tires on with your current 2.5" lift? Or is this just for looks right now?

Iím only hesitant on the MCE because there pretty expensive for being plastic, but iíve heard great things about them.

    Yes the MCEs are expensive, but less expensive than the metal options. Periodically they go on sale. I recently saw then at 20% off through one vendor. Truth be told, I was not willing to pay full price, and only pulled the trigger when I found some new ones on Craigslist at half price. They are the now-discontinued ďcarbon fiberĒ finish. Everyone thinks I have real carbon fiber fenders, which would be dumb.

    I ran cut stock ones for a long time and liked it. I changed to MCE for no real reason other than why not. Install was easy and I like the looks a bit more.

    The plastic options (eg MCE) are lighter weight, donít rust, and tend to bend rather than transfer full force to body panels. They donít look as nice, but thatís a subjective judgment. I have the MCE full width and Iíve been happy with them.

    Cutting the stock fenders is free and entails the same benefits as MCE. I never cared for the look, personally. But again, thatís subjective.

    Good info right there OP ^^^. I was all about steel fenders until I met Fiend and saw his MCE.

    To me the MCE look better then cut stocks but for a free mod you can't go wrong either.

    I have been running the aluminum Poison Spyders in the rear for a while now (cut stocks up front) and for me they come in handy as a step when messing with camp gear on the roof rack. Without the rack, not sure I would have got away from the free cut-up stock mod.IMG_8269.jpg

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
