The new line of XRC JK front fenders was specifically engineered to provide the protection and clearance needed when you're pushing your rig through the toughest conditions. Each piece of armor is manufactured out of 3/16" cold rolled steel and then powder coated in Smittybilts signature series two stage matte black powder coat finish. Each fender is designed to be a complete bolt- on with stainless steel fasteners and requires no modification to the vehicle. All of the XRC Fenders come with an inner fender liner to keep mud, snow or any other debris out of the engine compartment and replaceable slide plates.
Very well built I bought front and rear. Take your time installing and you will be happy with the finished product. I don't need to worry about the occasional bump of the trees now or the side scraping on angle in a dry wash now! (Sorry little tire on for the winter in the pics)
Only downside is more spray on side of jeep
I put the XRC Front Armor on my JK because I wanted something with some unique styling and that you don't see every day. The install is definitely a 3 or 4 out of 5 on the difficulty scale. You have to do some minor cutting and drilling but it's not bad at all if you follow the instuctions. It really narrows up the front of the JK's which are a very wide platform Jeep. The all steel construction allows me not to worry about trees or rocks damaging the Jeep. Overall an awesome product and I can't wait to install the rear ones!
these fender look awesome, probably the best looking on the market. these fenders are also a pain to install, i did the front ones myseld and just decided to get the back ones intalled by a shop. they arent hard to install they are just very time consuming.
do these replace the complete front quarter panel and fender flare? or just go over the Quarter panel?

Daniel, the Smittybilt XRC Front Fender Armor will replace your whole quarter panel and flare. Thanks for the question!

I have the following installed on my JK Wrangler Unlimited: EVO-1048-2D / EVO-1048-4D QTY PART# DESCRIPTION 1 EVO-11027 / EVO-11025 2dr.ROCKSLIDER Driver/ 4dr. ROCKSLIDER Driver 1 EVO-11028 / EVO-11026 2dr. ROCKSLIDER PASS/ 4dr. ROCKSLIDER PASS Will the XRC Front Fender Armor and Rear Fender Armor be compatible for installation. Thanks Keith The EVO MFG RockSliders are intended to be welded onto your vehicle wherever you prefer, up if you have a body lift down if you don't, forward if you have large tires etc. This is one of the advantages of a weld-on slider other than their increased strength. Test fit sliders before painting or coating. A few things the installer should take into account before welding Make sure you have a .5" (~thumb width) or more between the pinch seam of the body and the rockslider at all three frame tubes. Sand paint from all areas to be welded Repaint all exposed metal after welds cool

Hi Keith From what I have read that you said I would think the XRC Front Fender Armor would fit with what you said but being we do not carry all the EVO proucts and have not test fitted them there is really no way of knowing for sure. Thanks

I fell in love with these fenders front and back since the first time I saw them. Im wondering about the DIY ability of these fenders and if there is any cutting front or rear to install. Basically can a guy with an average skill set install them with a bit of help from a friend or is it a complex install...maybe a youtube instrution video? Thanks for your time :-)

Nick Sherman, the Smittybilt XRC Front Fender Armor are not a hard install at all. With 2 people then can be installed in an afternoon with common tools. There is some drilling and cutting but nothing outrageous that a sawzall and good cordless drill can't do. Here is a link to the instructions: http://www.4wd.com/aux_incl/pdf.ashx?pdf=76880.pdf&line=S/B Hope this helps!
