Manufactured from 1.5" x .120 wall tubing and 5/32" plate.
I Installed These Fenders To Replace A Crinkled Stock Fender, And Gain Some Needed Wheel Clearance. They Have A Nice Satin Finish And Fit Reasonably Well With A Little Extra Work ToThe Mounting Holes. They Are Incredibly Strong, But At The Cost Of Considerable Weight Gain. The Installation Instruction That Came In The Box Were A Bit Difficult To Comprehend AsThey Were Printed In Black And White. I Would Recommend Going To Their Website And PrintingThe Instructions Out In Color If You Aren't Exactly Sure Where To Cut Your Stock Fenders.

HARD TO INSTALL
IF YOU HAVE NO EXPERIENCE IN INSTALLING SOMETHING LIKE THIS, DONT DO IT ALONE. THE CUTTING IS EASY BUT PUTTING THE BOLTS IN THE INNER FENDER WELL IS A PAIN. YOU WILL NEED A BUDDY TO HELP HOLD THE FENDER UP. YOU WILL PUT THE FENDER ON AND OFF A LOT TO GET IT JUST RIHT WITH THE TRIMMING. BATTERY TRAY HAS TO BE TRIMMED AND MAKE SURE YOU ACTUALLY CUT THE EXACT STENCIL. DONT LEAVE ANY EXTRA THINKING MAYBE YOU WILL CUT TO MUCH. IT IS EXACT TO THE STENCIL. AFTER DOING ONE SIDE THE OTHER SIDE WAS EASIER, BUT STILL A PAIN. IT WILL TAKE ALL DAY TO INSTALL SO DONT MAKE ANY PLANS AND START EARLY.

Smitty Front Tube Fenders with flare
A lot of bad reviews on the web about Smittybuilt. Some of their stuff is poor quality but these fenders seem tough and durable. Cost was a major factor for me and I wanted a bolt on set of fenders. Cutting your own is the hardest part and the direction they give you are good for soaking up fluid spills.

Great quality but garbage instructions!
I put this fender kit on my TJ rock crawler...nothing bad to say except the instruction manual is garbage. I think they used a 1987 Kodak disposable camara to take the pictures. The fender isn't difficult to install if you have some experience but I would really avoid this if you have ZERO experience with body work. If u can handle a saw and aren't afraid to put it to your jeep...then it's a breeze.

Excellent Quality-Just what I expected!
Great product but you have to be as strong as a gorilla to install them yourself. Otherwise I would suggest having a friend help.
They are very durable and allow for much more travel on the front end. They can take a beating too - very durable!

Good Quality, Good Price, Bad How To
Fit was great. Finish was below average. There were poorly welded sections that weren't powder coated correctly and had visible rust. I flake the powder coating off to follow the rust and it was under the coating as well. For the intended purpose, not a huge issue, but I was a bit frustrated removing the coating to contain the rust.
Otherwise, the instructions were poor and confusing. I installed using logic and common sense.

A nice look and fit.
Nice looking tube fenders, add a great look to my Jeep. Appear to be very strong and durable. Install instruction are confusing at times.
Does the hood latch comes with it in the right position or I have to locate it myself to fit the hood?
Sam from Las Vegas on
The Smittybilt XRC Armor Front Tube Fenders hood latch is a direct bolt-on. Just remove the factory unit and install on the new fenders. They line right up. Thank you.

I live in California, and I have a 2000 TJ Sahara. If I install these tube fenders on my Jeep will it still be street legal? (In California.) What about the rear ones... are they street legal?
Ricksta from Castro Valley, Ca. on
Yes, the Smittybilt XRC Armor Front Tube Fenders with 3" Flare are legal in California provided your wheels do not stick out beyond the flare (IE. wider axles, 10" or wider wheels, 12.50" or wider tires, thick wheel spacers). Same goes for the rear flare set. Thank you.

Are the fenders made out of Dom tubing and how thick are they? Do they bring the fender well back for more tire clearance than stock? Thanks.
Gregory from United States on
I know its 3-16 steel and yes they have more tire clearance.
