Poison Spyder 13-02-050 DeFender XC Negative Front Fender Flares for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ

Poison Spyder Part #: 13-02-050
Poison Spyder pioneered the tube fender revolution nearly two decades ago, and most Jeep armor manufacturers are still stuck in the past with this out-dated concept. But the state of the art in Jeep fender armor has taken a giant leap forward with Poison Spyder’s revolutionary DeFender product line. Rather than tube, the outer edges of the DeFender are brakeformed into a rugged 3-sided rub rail. Most “tube fenders” use tubing less than 1/8-inch thick as the outer edge rub rail. Compare that to the 3/16 thick material of the DeFender which is carried throughout its structure, from the outer rub rail surface to the top plates to the mounting structure. Front and rear DeFenders are not only much stronger than tube fenders, they look much better as well, with smooth flat surfaces that blend better with your Jeep’s exterior appearance. Options abound, with various widths available front and rear to match your tire clearance and visibility needs!
DeFenders™ are fabricated entirely from CNC laser-cut, precision brake-formed 3/16" plate, either heavy duty P&O steel or lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum. Only one competitor manufactures a fender that's anything like the DeFender™>—fabricated entirely of plate with no tubing—but their design leaves a vertical edge of the metal pointed downward, right at the tire. The DeFender™ has an extra "return", or lip along the underside of the fender, which provides better protection from cutting into a fully stuffed tire, while also lending extra strength to the outer edge of the fender, where it is most likely to come in contact with rocks, canyon walls, trees, etc.
