Poison Spyder DeFender XC’s Provide eXtreme Clearance For Huge Tires On Jeep TJ

PoisonSpyderTJDefender2(NOVEMBER 16, 2012 • BANNING, CA) — A year ago, Poison Spyder Customs revolutionized the armored Jeep fender category with the introduction of its innovative line of DeFender™ armored fenders for Jeep TJ and YJ. DeFenders™, constructed entirely of 3/16” plate steel (or aluminum), rendered the tired old “Tube Fender” concept obsolete. Now, the bar is raised even further with the new DeFender™ XC, which provides eXtreme Clearance for huge tires with little or no suspension lift.

DeFender™ XC’s provide the same tire clearance as competitors’ “high-line” tube fenders, but with the unique benefits of the DeFender™ design concept. The wheel opening is 3” higher and 2-1/2” wider than typical tube fenders, allowing Jeep owners to use little or no suspension lift and still fit massive tires—keeping a Low Center Of Gravity (LCOG) and better performance on the trail.

Like all DeFenders™, the XC versions are crafted entirely of CNC laser cut, precision brake-formed 3/16” plate steel or aluminum. This “tubeless” design is both stronger and lighter than old school tube fenders, and has an updated, state-of-the-art appearance. DeFender™ XC’s come in three different flare designs: 3” Tapered Flare (shown here), Zero Flare, and Negative Flare. There is an optional DeFender™ XC Inner Fender Set for those who would like a complete, great looking installation rather than having to modify and re-use the stock inner fenders.

PoisonSpyderTJDefender1“We run the DeFender™ XC’s on my personal Jeep, Daddy Longlegs,” says Poison Spyder president Larry McRae. “The XC’s have allowed us to run a 39” tire with very little lift, keeping the Jeep low to the ground. The result is the most stable Jeep I’ve ever driven, on steep climbs, off-camber, any kind of terrain.”
