YJ Tube fenders

Looking at tube fenders. Both have 1.5 x .120 DOM tube.
Smittybilt is 5/32" plate, Genright is 1/8".
My buddy Paul has the Smittybilts and they have worked fine for him.

Smittybilt is $300

Genright is $500

Granted the vented side is nice but for an extra $200?

Thoughts? Are there other options out there?

Jim,
Are you looking to run a highline fenders? If so then Gen right is your choice. Two down sides from my experince with them. Cutting the hood is a pain in the ass to do. Plus on the inner fenderwell you have to reuse the old one also a pain to do. The plus side very strong and I like the vent on them.

Here is another option for you to look at. These will get you the clearance just like a highline fender without any hood cutting, plus they come with a new inner fenderwell..They look awesome and one guy in the club just put them on and was very happy with the fit and ease of install.

Brian,
I don't need hi-line fenders. Standard ht fenders are fine so not really neading the metalcloaks. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Although you have to weld them together, the you have that extra mount and the thickness of the genrights.

Smittybilt is thicker.

None of them come with inner fender wells from what i see.
