It takes a lot of work to make use of that 3/4".

I never did. Which is why I haven't bought any for my LJ.

Just got done cycling my suspension, and thanks to being bumped for 11" Ranchos, I still don't get into that flange with 35s. I could get another 1.5" of uptravel with MCE fenders (or almost an inch with trimmed stock fenders) but the shocks I'd need to do that would put me at like 7 up/3 down so there's not much point.

Very nice. Standard, correct? Which version? 0/4/6?
Even with inner fenders no relocation? Now after looking there's no requirement for inners. Says it keep OEM inner fender.

We have a a contender.

Thanks.

Here you go!

Those have been listed on Ebayfor months. I looked at them before buying mine and I got mine from 4 wheel parts when they had a 10% off sale and the price was only about about $200 more and free shipping. If your interested I would watch for Black Friday sales

I should revise this previous statement.

I did make use of the space from the MCEs when I initially installed them - because it got rid of the hard contact my tire was making with the aforementioned fender flange during full flex. It was enough to have damaged the fenders on both sides. The trick is at that time I was running 2.5-3" lift and the next shorter Ranchos, advertised for a 2" lift, so I could stuff the tire up higher. Once I went to the 4" lift and 11" Ranchos I haven't used the clearance. It'll come into play again if I ever get shorter shocks or relocate the front shock mount. My steering/track bar/axle will give me about another 2" if I want.

What backspacing? I'm not finding that at Northridge, etc.

Mine are painted, but I cheated I had a body shop do the painting 🤫

:ROFLMAO:
Ok. I might go the the rattle can route with paint match code.

No perforated side panels that are included now? I'm not sure those are all that practical or what parts of the engine compartment they provide access to, or even how critical it is to remove engine compartment heat. And I expect they'd let dirt and moisture in. :unsure:

My LJR has Poison Spyder sliders and I assume PS rear quarter guards. I don't know if mods would be required for fitment.
I asked MetalCloak that question and they say they provide a template to cut the sliders to fit their fenders. Guess I need to ask GenRight the same questions.

Gonna go look for TJ/LJ pictures with 6" GenRight to see if I find them ugly. I'm no fan of mud splatter and avoid mud as much as possible. Ain't scared of the mud but cleaning it is awful. We have a special formula of mud in the high desert. Bug dust/talcum powder summer and Plaster of Paris when water is added. Basically chisel it off if left to dry. We get stuck in the dust out here.
