They were supposed to be added to the site. Shoot them an e-mail and they will let you know. I'm replacing my front JCR with their's as soon as they release the one for Falcon 3.3 shocks. Great people to work with.
What didn’t you like about the jcrs?

The said video >>

I was all set personally on those Artec's but AVL came on my radar with their LED and now seeing this. I really like the look and thought put into that.

Will the AAL front liners work with fox reservoir shocks without cutting?

Based on the pics I think it is OK, the fox instructions have the front reservoir just above the metal skid for the sway bar disconnect.
On their Instagram (here) they say this >>

We're building versions of our new Quick-Release Inner Fenders to support all of the major shock manufacturers. The unique cutouts will be on a separate panel so if you change shocks in the future, you wont have to buy an entire set of inners, only the shock-specific portion.

We'll have a Falcon equipped Jeep JL in the shop next week for proper fitment.
You'll be able to select your shock in the site at the time of purchase.
So, looks like a little patience will go a long way if you're interested in theirs.

Also, sorry about hijacking to the OP for discussing another brand.

I like the look and fit of the JCR's but not the work in taking them in and out when I need to run wiring or what ever behind them.

Artec is top notch. American adventure lab (AAL) just released some too. We’re ordering them. Can be removed in 30-40 seconds and you don’t have to drill any holes

What is the deficiency of the OEM plastic liners that would lead one to get metal ones? Or is this just mainly for aesthetic purposes?

most people get them for the aesthetics but from a practical aspect when you swap from stock fenders to aftermarket or chop the stock fenders the stock fender liner will either no longer fit or look ugly and your options are to remove, fabbing new, or after market. Removing the fender exposes the sides of the engine bay and the tires can start throwing rocks and stuff into the engine bay and can lead to a bad time, you can fab up your own most just get heavy rubber mats and cut them to fit with they wear down over time and look crappy. You can fab with metal or buy aftermarket metal ones they wont break down like the rubber mats and protect just as well.

@Sheepjeep nailed it. They mostly give a finished look
