Ya for sure. I personally can't stand the look without them. Taking the time to mount the fenders, take the little extra time to fit those as well. My thoughts anyway....

hmmmmmmmmm... that product picture looks too perfect... looks photoshopped...

the lines are perfectly matched, and since they don't take paypal, you don't have much protection...

considering they have that big disclaimer about contacting them directly instead of leaving negative feedback makes me wonder how many issues they typically have that try so hard to nip them in the bud...

just read the details of their product...

it's a blend of glass and plastic and other resins... might be too much work just to smoothen them out...

"Duraflex, VFiber, and Urethane parts only come with a top layer gel coat and may require additional surface preparation such as sanding and filling before the parts can be painted and installed. An example of such prep work could include sanding down the area, using filler, and then sanding the area down again. You should then prime the area and add more filler, if needed. Sand once more and prime the area to be ready for paint."

at least with Glassworks, you can just rattlecan them and slap them on...

you can find them for $279, but don't know what shipping would be...

they definitely were inspired by the style, but that is likely not copyrighted...

but i would want to see a real world test on these fenders...

i want to see someone mount them and bash their truck the way a long travel truck would since form and ease of fitment are pointless if they can't hold up to the abuse...

The body lines lined right up and very minimal trimming was needed to get them to mount. I'd def recommend them. Plus they are on sale right now for $325....



^^^ befor the trimming of the headlight lower trim
Looks good!

Thanks man! Minus the MASSIVE bro stance it had going on right here. The 1.5" block was higher than the DE SUA kit, I had to bring the front down about 1.5" and it rides sooo plush now.

those duraflex ones would prolly fit like garbage, most do. and extreme dimensions makes them right?? i've heard nothing but bad about the fitment of stuff from those guys. not to bash on them or anything. just stating from word of mouth. I'm very happy with my glassworks fenders. prolly could fit a little better with more trimming. But i'm not looking to win trophys for show with my truck

I ordered some glasswork fenders last month. They charged me that day and I have yet to get the fenders. I called a couple weeks ago and they told me they had been shipped. I called them last week and they told me they put the wrong name on the invoice and misplaced it. they told me they were going to ship out wed. night I have still yet to see them. I keep seeming to get the run around from Ted. I am beginning to wonder whats going on. I have all my parts to start on my truck minus the fenders. Any suggestions?
