Ultra High Clearance:
This is important to understand. Often customers would like to run a bigger tire, but opt for a 35 or smaller simply because they only want (or can afford) to run 2-3 inches of lift. An easy solution is to sell them the 2-3 inch cost effective lift, MCE Fenders and then the 37’s they really want on their JK. Or no lift and 35’s with stock suspension and MCE Fenders. An ideal solution for near new Jeeps with owners concerned about their factory warranty if they upgrade the suspension. Also perfect for customers who have upgraded tire size and now the factory fenders are being pulled loose or falling off when the tires contact requiring re-installation and new factory fasteners.
True Off-Road Design
The single wall construction allows the fender to bend and absorb impact then bounce back to the original shape. Developed in the northwest by Jeepers who tired of fenders being crushed or damaging the body itself (steel fenders) MCE Fenders are the only true “Offroad” designed plastic fenders on the market. Others will keep mud off the bodywork, but none were engineered with the intent to actually survive impacts and protect the Jeep tub and sheet metal at the same time.
MCE’s are Energy Absorbing! Our fenders will bend and fold before being pulled off or damaging the tub or inner fenders and then return to the original shape. This is incredibly important on Jeep JK’s. The bodywork is extremely thin and vulnerable on these Jeeps and it’s quite common for steel tube fenders to bend the bodywork they are attached to resulting in serious damage to the tub or front structure when hit reasonably hard. Allowing the fenders to absorb the impact greatly reduces the impact loads on the structures to which they are attached. A crushed tub, with a perfect tube fender isn’t much of a consolation in the event of a big hit.
Easily painted by adding a flex agent to the paint MCE fenders will accept standard automotive paints and the TPO blend can be sanded smooth for a perfect custom finish if desired. :-dip also adheres well and can be a good temporary option for customers wanting to change things up occasionally.
Front MCE JK Fenders are stock width at the widest point tapering to a narrower front for better clearance when winding along a trail. The lower rear section is also tapered, but still offers significant width at the lower edge to keep debris off the body and reduce road spray in the rain. We can run this wider lower rear section that appears vulnerable simply because the Fenders are so tough and durable that even if you snag one its very unlikely to damage it. We’ve also developed a cover/retaining bracket that allows reusing the front inner fenderwell after trimming it from the original front fender. In some climates this may not be needed, but in muddy wet areas having the inner front fender well is absolutely required to keep debris out of the engine compartment.
Rear MCE JK Fenders bolt into the original body flange and eliminate the inner fender well structure required by the factory Jeep fenders. By attaching to the outer flange the MCE Fenders will not come off if rubbed and impacted off-road and clearance in the wheelwell is greatly improved by removal of the factory plastic structure allowing for a much larger tire to tuck into the well on compression.
If an MCE fender ever cracks, MCE will replace it for the original owner at no charge.
