Tube fender flares make sense for the narrow body on the Jeep, what do you all think we'll see for similar protection for our Broncos? Searched, didn't find anything, it'd be cool to see some products or renders.

I think it’ll be a tough design without building new fenders... but I’d like to try.

I have been thinking about this actually, but taking a more extreme approach and creating a full "tube" quarter panel. My main concern however, is if the factory attachment points can take enough force to handle the tubes taking an impact without deforming the sheet metal that they would otherwise be screwed into. Or if those attachment points would have be reinforced somehow. There is a fab shop here in Phoenix I am going to have take a look at it after I take delivery, so we will see. Regardless I am excited about the possibility of being able to do this in general, hopefully without any welding or cutting of any part of the car itself.

I attached a screen shot from one of the videos showing the removal. It looks like those points should be pretty solid. This is a two door obviously, but the 4 Door looks like the their pretty solid as well.
