OEM fenders ( trimmed) : aftermarket inner fender liner?



At this years Crawlin'for Ried , I saw so many amazing Jeeps .
I don't generally ever compare my Jeep to others but seeing so many JK/JKUs up close for 3days made me notice something; my cutup & ziptied ,stock inner fender liners up front are really ugly .
(this picture is 4 yrs old but reveals what I mean. They're even more cut & stitched now. )




Now, I am all about function , so the Frankenstein liners I have keep mud out ...but, after seeing all the nice inner fender liners , narcissism has kicked in & I am searching w/out much luck .

Anyone have any recommendations for inner, front liner options of aluminium that will work on trimmed factory fender flares ?

I’ve got a pair of poison spider ones that work with my factory trimmed flares. Looking at the mounting points on the ones I’ve got, it looks like artec would also work. Not sure about the others, but I would assume most of them use the same mounting points

I have seen the AEV inner fenders with stock outer fenders. I would imagine they all mount to the same locations and would be usable with stock fenders.

I'm putting in a set of Ace vented liners. They say they work with the stock flares. Got the full set F&R on black Friday...

Thanks, y'all.

@chris36l
Do those PS liners affix down where our JKUs like to accumulate debris , at pinchseam behind front wheel , securely?

(Fwiw, yours were among those I saw & liked the look of a few weeks ago, bud )

Thanks for the compliment. I get a lot on the line I chose.
I used a jigsaw and a bottle of 4 roses to cut them as close to
what I thought would look like the JTTruck , Mopar Underground concept vehicle's looked like.

I swear it was by eye & pretty much cut freehand on both sides,lol


I am not sure if I know the jk of which you refer? Picts?

They seem to close that gap in pretty well. I got these from Travis, and he had already done some trimming to get them to work with the evo fenders he had on his JKUR. They’re on pretty securely, only thing that bothers me at times is the rattle from the screen(not terrible, just too lazy to take them off and tighten all of the nuts and bolts)

I run DV8 Fender liners front and rear on mine, rear fit really well, as do the front, but I did have to trim them to fit around hydraulic bump stop tube and remote resi on my fox shocks, that and a can of paint and I like them fine. I do like the look of the Poison Spyder liners also. My two cents............FWIW

i just installed Artec inner fenders because they were cheaper than most. It's crazy how much companies are charging for these thin bits of aluminum.

I get that confused with the 'Lower Fourties' build but, they all three share one thing in common ; they have that same, hi-line Mopar fnder flare .
That Rubi-King has same exact fender profile as the JT Truck concept that I went gaga over when I saw it that year.



I did my best to make 'em look like that.
It makes me super plzed tht you thought they looked like that, thanks again!

I think they look awesome!
If I didn't find these cheap flebay flatties, that's what I was gonna do.

My Jeep has smittybilt flares and no liner when I got it. I hate the open look personally. So i got the Evo mini liners they look great and it doesn’t have the open unfinished look anymore.

I like the weight advantage of those plus the minimal design ; if I had the arid fortune to match your
location I would probably run those . But , being in the SouthEast , the unavoidable nemesis to all rock crawlers around here is , sadly, inevitable & often unavoidable; mud.


Those liners are far too open , even if the JKs engine bay is what Mopar considers a " wet" one , I can't imagine what damage the grit from accumulated mud would chew thru every moving part pulley or joint under the hood in a season .

But , out there those probably also help keep the heat mitigated .

I totally agree that they would be terrible in the southeast or anywhere thats gets weather. they are aluminum and are very light. i know EVO also makes full liners for different suspension set ups. something to look into.

Just about every major MF makes them. We have trimmed the aluminum ones to fit different coil over setups they are not hard to trim if you have the right tools.

Thanks @Fklein6768

I'll update this w/ which ones I chose once they get here.
I found ones I liked w/ no obnoxious brand-placement AND no ventilation holes, (as I wanted) .

We shall see....

I have Ace ones in the garage....just need to get around to some maintenance prior to install. Need to do my frame and replace gas tank skid and some rust forming in a few spots.

I have quite a bit on the to do list.

I am sure whatever you choose will be a methodical/well thought out decision
