Don’t be Caught with Other Fenders
Our MCE-SPEC TPO material is so durable yet flexible, we have an industry leading LIFETIME warranty to the original buyer against cracking. Temperature, weather, off-road, etc. does not affect this warranty. Afterall, we are 4×4 enthusiasts and originally began building fenders that don’t break for ourselves out of necessity. Jeep fenders built by enthusiasts for enthusiasts!
MCE Fenders Technical Features and FAQ
Not just assembled in the US. MCE Fenders are produced using US sourced materials in an ISO9001 facility. We are committed to building our products in the US in order to maintain quality standards and continue to innovate as we develop new products.
On a JK 4 Fenders can be done by the end user in about 2 hours with common tools. Professional installers frequently comment our JK Fenders are the easiest on the market to install and look the best as well.
Plastics are like metal alloys, and we use the 300M of the plastic world to make our fenders. Our materials are significantly longer lasting than other plastic fenders as a result of our proprietary TPO plastic blend. Completely UV stable MCE Fenders will never fade in sunlight, offer flexibility to a minimum of -40F* and return to their shape time and again after an impact. Not cheap, but very durable. The result is a fender that will survive the most extreme conditions the customer can throw at them and they won’t turn chalky white like the factory or other aftermarket fenders can. It’s the right material for the job.
Factory Style Black Plastic and Glossy Carbon. The finishes aren’t just surface fluff either. We thermally bake a top cap of finished plastic followed by a second layer of clear coat plastic on top of that. The baking process actually happens twice during manufacturing to essentially bond the 3 layers into one. It’s more durable than paint or powdercoat, won’t crack when bent, and vastly superior to a water dip or other thin surface treatment.
Of Course! 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. Plasti-dip also adheres well and can be a good temporary option for customers wanting to change things up occasionally.
If an MCE fender ever cracks, MCE will replace it for the original owner at no charge. We can offer this warranty because in practice cracking a fender is almost impossible, not because the fenders are so cheaply made that it’s cost effective for us to simply give them away when they fail.
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.
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.
We use stainless steel fasteners throughout for a MCE Fender install and we use fasteners appropriate for the job. Self tapping sheet-metal screws are used to hold the fenders to the body. Why not threaded inserts? We looked at these types of fasteners extensively, but they require a much larger hole, are vastly more difficult to install and often result in seized hardware due to dissimilar metals between the bolts and the inserts themselves. Threaded inserts are not very consumer friendly for the DYI customer as installing them correctly requires specialized tools. Our solution is simple, requires minimum size holes to be drilled, is fast to do and offers attachment strength vastly higher than is required so that MCE Fenders will not be pulled off when trail riding. We also offset the fastener patterns in order to retain the factory fastener locations in the event the Jeep needs to be returned to it’s original fenders at a later date.
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.
Extremely tough and durable, but less than 15 lbs per set on a JK. These new Jeeps are heavy enough from all the accessories they are often fitted with. Reducing weight just makes sense when possible and even better to reduce weight up high to help keep the center of gravity low.
This is one not often spoken of. The ability to absorb impact is important in the event of an on road collision either with an object or pedestrian. It’s unknown how steel tube fenders will react in the event of a serious collision, but as they frequently are much stronger than what they are bolted to it’s quite likely they could have serious consequences.
The materials used will tolerate salty environments without damage for years. Even the best coated steel and aluminum fenders will eventually begin to corrode, especially if road salts are used regularly. MCE Fenders will not suffer this fate.
Available LED running lights can be mounted into the fender or into the side of the grill for a custom look that keeps the Jeep legal for road use where required.
