    hey what ur guys thoughts on getting fiberglass fender on a not long travel taco? like im rubbing the front fenders and thought fiberglass ones would take care of that and would look pretty good... oh and im considering them because im getting my truck repainted( same color just more brilliant) in the spring thanks

    if your tires will fill the fenders (flush with outer edge) Yes. So if your tires dont stick out of your wheel wells now, it will look like crap.

    Front coils set at 3"

    I still rubbed on the frame full lock/compression when wheeling though.

    I have mid travel with 6" fenders! Coilovers set at 0, camburg spindles, 4.5" backspacing, 35" tires and spidertrax spacers because my rims dont clear the calipers but it looks good without the spacers as well. check my sig for my build link for more pics!

    I want to get AP fenders with my Icon mid-travel setup, probably rock some offset wheels with spacers or something. I think it'll look good if you do it

    ^the all pro fenders are pretty small, just 2" so you shouldnt have any problem clearing those and they look sweet!

    Why you gonna thread jack yoself, we're talking about fenders here man. lol jk, I think depends more on the mileage rather than how old they are, Im no pro so Ill leave it to a pro for an offical answer though

    You have given me much hope now! I always wanted to go long travel to do some fast desert runs, but I wanted for the way it looks to, at least I know I can get the look now.

    hmm well your rims already make you really wide like you said you stick out 2" and depending on what tires you have they will kinda get wider. ATs are usually narrow but MTs can be wider. My generals are 315/75/16 but are wider than BFG ATs in the same size. if i was you i would go with the glassworks 4" fenders. post a pic of your truck so we can get a reference :cool:
