JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
When it comes to flat fenders there are so many options. To be honest, most of them look the same too. There are subtle differences and the build quality is different sure, but when it comes to a company earning my business...there are a few things that make all the difference. That's exactly why I chose DV8's 2nd gen flat fenders.
I'll start with this...if I can't find a made in the USA product from a company that offers a great customer experience, I at least want an American company that that cares about their customer service. This is my second or third time going with a DV8 product and every time these guys have gone over and above what I expected to make me feel more like a friend than a customer. That goes a long way with folks, right?
The fenders look great. I love the thick tubing and wide surface of the front fenders. Not only does that keep things legal, it gives that custom, but "factory" look that I love and the rear fenders have a great shape that will equally impress.
The install was pretty basic. For the front fenders you line up the holes and tighten them down, easy stuff. When it came to installing the rear set though, it was a bit odd. Only because of my unfamiliarity with the type of anchoring system DV8 uses though. Randy at DV8 spent the time showing me how they install and once I saw that, the rear installs faster than the fronts! Very user friendly. (My only complaint is that particular anchor system. DV8 didn't invent the anchor so it's not on them, but I think using a different type might be better).
A full set of front and rear fenders will cost you just under $790 bucks, which is about the lower cost end of the standard. The fenders are light weight, give great protection and will look great on any Jeep. Most impressive are the faces behind the company. From the girls at the front to Randy, which has a great skill set of know how to the owners who made sure they came out to talk Jeep with me, all great folks that made my experience with them a great one.
