The "BTF Jeep Tube Fenders (DIY Kit)" is a great product choice for the home builder. This kit comes with all the pieces you need to build your own tube fenders. The kit includes steel plate pieces that bolt to the grill and to the tub. It also includes fender tops that have a large flange on the inside of the engine bay for mounting accessories along with 1 1/4"x.120 wall tube that is bent to connect the grill to the tub. All of the plate pieces are laser cut from 1/8" high-strength steel.
This is a builders kit. This kit has to be welded together and is shipped unpainted.
My original fenders had rust holes, so I chose these as a replacement. You need a torch to heat up and bend the front grill mounts. Can't easily reuse inner fender(I cut out sheet metal and made my own). Removal of old fenders and associated parts attached to them, install, welding, re-installation of electrical parts on fenders, took about 4hrs.
WThese are a builders set so be prepared for them to not fit without a little modification. When finished they look fantastic and would definitely recommend them to anyone
How wide are the fenders at the front end? these will go on a 1979 cj5.

Is the kit for both fenders or just one?
Asked by Dan The YJ MAN from SEMO Jeeps Missouri on
Hello Dan! This kit is for both fenders, so you'll just need to order one part to cover both front fenders.
