    Default Smittybilt Tube Fenders

    I just purchased these tube fenders for my tj. I was wondering if anybody is running them on their rig. If so, how do you like them? How difficult was the install? Thanks for any input.

    Those look pretty good, I have the full corners and flares for the rear and like them very easy install.

    i have the same ones on my LJ it took me and ivester about a day for one side to put on. it was about 15 degrees out and the wind was blowing so it was close to zero or colder. minus the freezing a$$ temps they were easy to put on. the are very strong compare to factory.

    the only 2 down sides i have with mine is my started to rust after about 2 months. the stuff that smittybilt sprayed on them was not the best they could of used IMO. the 2nd thing which is a small thing is that the tires are not covered all the way and there for any type of mud, small rocks, and wet roads will cover the side of your jeep. other then those i love them

    if i had to do it over again i would strip the stuff thst came on it and primer it and paint it with a bed liner.

    gen right makes an LED kit for tube fenders

    and you need an LED Flasher to if you run with the LEDs i cant find the link for it but if you call 4x4groupbuy.com they will find it and give you a bit of a discount.
