Whether you’ve damaged your Wrangler’s fender while on a treacherous trail or just want to refresh its looks, it’s good to know that you have many options at your disposal.

A popular and often times easy modification to update your JK with is to swap out its factory fenders. The fenders your Jeep comes with are adequate for stock equipped JKs, but once larger diameter wheels, tires and more capable suspension are installed, they can tend to limit the performance of your rig.

Avoid fender rubbing and premature tire wear with a set of aftermarket fenders for your ride. The right set will not only allow your upgraded wheels and tires roam freely without any encumbrance, but will give it a meaner, all-business look as well. There are many fenders on the market, take a look around and you’re bound to find a set that fits your truck the best. The ones featured on the following pages are a select few that caught our eye.
