    I dont know if you read the review on MVC fenders by txboy72, but he seemed to have done his reasearch and got theirs and seems very pleased. I am not sure if MVC makes fenders for the YJ. There are pics somewhere on the forum (just saw it but cant remember where) of a Jeep rolled up and sitting on one of MVCs fenders. I've heard pretty good things about those guys since Ive been a member and when I start building up my TJ Im going to hit them up for some stuff. Hope something here helps. Good luck in your search.

    Go with either MVC or Gen-Right

    Check out the new Smittybilt XRC flares. 4WD.com has them for $399 with a 3" flare or $299 without. Either version has a black textured powercoat and last I knew they still had a 20% sale on them. The flare won't cover a 12.50 tire but it will help.
    A simple misunderstanding gets a lot less simple when you add choppers and a SWAT team.

    Yes, we can make flat fenders for YJs. Take a look at txboy72's review and pics of our fenders. He has some great pics that show the fenders from all kinds of angles.
