Tube Fenders

Post by pertneer » Wed Apr 15, 2009 12:28 pm

A couple of year ago I built myself a pair of flat fenders. I liked the ones form Poison Spyder Customs but I did not like the way that they utilized the inner fender wells (because my Jeep had fiberglass fender and were in very bad shape). So I decided I needed to fabricate my own set. I used the basic design from their fenders with a little bit of a change. I added an inner fender into them.

It was as simple as bending two 90* bends and placing them, one at the top of the fender and one down and towards the center of the vehicle. I then used a piece of card board to fold around the bend to get a template to make the sheet metal for the inner fender.

I made these fender to withstand quite a bit of punishment. I can stand on them with out any problem. I have hit trees with them and didn't so much as leave a scratch. The inner fender is made of 16Ga and the top and sides of the fenders were made of 10Ga. The tube diameter is 1 1/4" 10Ga wall.

Here they are mounted on the Jeep before I had them powder coated.

I later decided to paint them to match the rest of the Jeep.

After a fresh coat of paint.

Simple fender wells, but effective ;)

That is why I did not like their fenders. You had to cut everything with no hope to return it to normal if you wanted to later. With mine I only have to take them off and bolt the originals back on. :)

Those are really nice. If/when my fiberglass fenders break, I will have to think about something like that.
