We'll be starting development again early next year. Unfortunately I don't have a target release date yet."
So - kinda bummed out currently. Would be cool if we could somehow figure this out as a community.
The 3d printing idea would be cool. I always thought about using painters tape around the areas where the fenders go then sculpt the fenders out of foam and fiberglassing over the foam to make molds. In theory , that would work.
I know that the right time to get the parts we want for our Jeeps is now, if we have the funds to afford it, but waiting for a likely project by Chief Products is not unreasonable. They would probably finish the flares they have in mind before we could even get a concept started, even if we could get that far.
So if they're that important to have now, get some Bushwackers in the meantime and swap them out when there's another option.
At least Chief P. is trying and I'm willing to wait for something done the proper way.
