    What Fenders?

    I am building my 2017 JKU. I have 35’s but will be long to 37’s next year. I was out on Saturday wheeling and looked at my Jeep and decided I need to ditch the factory flares. So question is what should I get? I really like the metal cloak overlines, but know much about them. Any suggestions or experiences?

    Them some ugly fenders but that's just my opinion. Check out Evo, Genright, or MCE.

    Metal fenders will not give if you hit them off road and will transfer the energy to your body causing body damage.

    Cutting your fenders is free and you can style the cut to your liking.

    Agree with above, Metal Cloak fenders are pretty fugly.

    I went with Nemesis. Pros: Look and fit perfect. Great craftsmanship. Con: Price20191005_153728.jpg20191005_153742.jpg

    You could trim your factories. That is free. I think it's a great look. It also takes hits better than metal ones.

    MCE makes great fenders, although not cheap. I plan on cutting mine but these are a good option if I find a good deal at Jeep Beach next year.

    Love the way the Nemesis look on your rig! I had been going between the Evo, Genright and Nemesis for about 7 months. I am having a hard time deciding. I cut mine shortly after the long arm/coilover and am fine with it for now. Up where we are at there's a tendency to "rub" them on stuff. Nice to have a couple extra inches before you get into the body.

    Cutting is free so u have nothing to lose by trying that first. Could save yourself some coin for other mods.

    There’s many different ways to cut them. I had cut mine like the mce flares.

    Did you reuse the inner liner?

About us
“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.
