I think the 3" flair will help when you slid of a rock and into a tree. It seams like they offer more protection.

Who said anything about rocks :boo: , :sneak: . They do make a set of fenders w/a 6" flare but it doesn't look to good IMHO.

P.S. Thanks for the thought, I didn't think of that :ya: , it would offer some protection & deflection.

Try Metal Fusion fenders. The owner is a past prez of the club and does EXCELLENT work.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....

Rollbar,

For the type of trails that you do and the build up you are doing, I personaly like the stock look. :ya:

If you wanted the tube fender look, I would go with the short flare from Poison (since you do not do rocks or worry about wheel well space). If you were doing rocks there is only one choice for me and that would be the Metal Fusion without a flare. The Poison Tube flares become a grappling hook to the side and will cause more stress on your body points. :boo: You will also gain 2"s of clearance inside your wheel well with the Metal Fusion :ya: while loosing about 1" with the Poisons. :boo:

Quick note, Metal Fusion has sold the rights to their Tube Fenders to another company. :nerd:

Since it's your money and no one can spend it for you, let us know what you decide. :wacko:

?
1. The metal fusions top/side plate is not welded & the spider is.

2. With the metal fusion fender U have to cut the inner wheel well & bolt it on, DO U have to do that w/the Spider fender?

Answer-
*Jeep Tube Fenders come unpainted
* Cutting of your original fender is required
* Tube Fenders without flare may not adhere to your local tire coverage laws and may require the tube fenders with flare
* Tube Fenders can be used without re-using the inner wheel well, however relocation of underhood components will be required, and a mount for the hood latch will need to be fabricated.


3. I was trying to go for that early Willy's look to the Jeep, that's why I am thinking about the flat fender.

4. I really don't want to cut my inner fender wells (I want them for re-use, oh I might have another set in stock I have to look), do U guys have an alternative?

5. Jim, I don't mind loosing an inch since I will have a 1"BL installed anyway.

6. Still confused :nerd: , maybe if some one could do a photo chop of all 3 fenders on a CJ8 in OD :sneak: , now that might help.

Signed, Master fabricator :boo: :wacko:,
RollBar

P.S. I never looked but does the inner fender well bolt on, I thought it was welded to the outer fender, I'll have to look but it's raining.

I like option 3 myself and plan on doing it to my TJ at some point in time but like you I would rather not cut up my stock fenders. Maybe somehow fabricate the inner fender.

hmm I guess someone must have voted that caused this old post to come back. I have to remember to look at the date before I replay :angry1:

As far as vehicle purpose is concern, I'll go with option number 2... That's only me...

I hope you've made the decision and the order as PSC is closing the doors to production work...

also, the inner fenders are spot welded to the outer. you can drill through the spot welds and then separate them for use on the flatties.

Dave,
Plenty of other fenders out there that don't rob you of 2"s of wheel well. Plus I think Rollbar is trying to stay with the old look and if he does anything he should stay with flat fender with no flare as it will take away from the looks of the Jeep, imo.

Hey Rollbar, why not just cut up the old ones and make the old look and save the money :2thumup:

This one went over my head.... I did not edit anything and I'm not trying to take over the wife's job since I see that she does a great job on you when she is around :grin:

Besides, Rollbar's options are not proper when it comes to Vintage and someone has to keep him in line. :2thumup:

Well I have been looking @ the flat fenders for the build I'm doing & the Jeep I am trying to resemble did not have flat fenders so like Jim said, someone has to keep me in line. I'll build a set of flatties after or just B-4 I'm done to get a better look now that I have a mig welder. Might bend some EMT conduit for a mock up & have my fabricator do something for me.

Thanks for keeping me in line there JimBo.

P.S. This post is in reference to the CJ8-M170 conversion.

P.P.S. I do like the first & second one.
