I have one side of the Metalcloak fenders done so far and a few people asked for some before and after comparison pictures so here they are. The inner fender set will be here Monday and I can get it all done then. I like that they sit lower on the body than the Rubi fenders and show the fender body line while actually giving a little more clearance than the Rubi fenders. I am including a bunch of pictures as when I was trying to decide on fenders it was hard to tell how wide all of the options out there were just by pictures and even Sema videos.

Love the look I am going back and forth between Metal Cloak and JCR Offroad. I do not see where Metal Cloak has rock rails or step bars as of yet.

No not yet, I am looking at the Rock Slide Engineering rails if I decide to go that way. The rear fender liners will be out in a month for the Metalcloak so just waiting for those to be available.

The website claims 6" of coverage for the rear fenders. From your pic, I'm only seeing a little under 5". Is that the widest portion of the rear flare?

Good Afternoon, just received my MetalCloak fenders for my Jeep Gladiator. The MetalCloak instructions indicate for a JL vs a JT. Did you find any issues where they may have been different?

Love it...if I had black fenders, I'd go the Metalcloak route. Looks great.

No go in PA...leaves too much tire poke...and its non linear.
