Default Front fender armor

I built these along time ago but Im starting a customer friendly shop building off road products for our jeep cherokees and grand cherokees and just wanted to see if anyone is interested in these.

This set is made out of 16 gage sheet and are bolted on. I did some reiforcing behind my stock fender to add some strenth. Im going to be making more sets but probly gona be going with a little thicker metal. let me know what yall think.

Front fenders are easy to replace, rears are a little more important imo
You should try to make it to rush in June, there's gonna be some big name bouncers there

Any more progress with the rear armor? I am interested in the front as well. Have you considered adding a tube/bar to the side's of either or both of the armor for protection of rock walls, trees and bushes?

IMHO 16 isnt going to protect much. 12 would be good.

Other than the armor for the side fenders, what I really like most is that I dont have to go to a shop and have them fix my rear quarters and front fenders (or buy new fenders) all I have to do is buy the armor from you to cover the imperfections of my current fenders. Can't wait 'til you have these done. Any idea on how you are going to charge for the fronts and rears?

i'd go for a set of rears for sure. I'd go the fronts too if they had say.....tube flares ??
tube flares would be a huge bonus on the rears too
