    does anyone have fiberglass fenders, bedsides, or a hood even
    "
    im pretty sure ive seen a pair on "mikesdoublecab" not 100% sure if it was him or not
    now heres the question. are they worth it? are they hard to install? ive seen them on glassworks and fiberwerx but are there any other sites that offer up a good deal on good looking fenders or bedsides?

    also. thouse things are pretty big.......a guess on shipping cost? haha

    if not long travel, try to get some in 3.5" flair... im running 6.5" but only cuz im 4" over per side...

    as for install, they aren't hard to install, but they don't come predrilled so you have to line them up, and being glass, they never line up perfectly...

    if looking to do fenders and a hood though, i would suggest considering a one piece clip as it looks seamless... the separate hood and fenders may not line up...

    ^ yup, but a 1 piece clip on a non LT truck is gonna look out of place...

    the install is easy, it's junst kinda time consuming cause like mike said glass is never perfect and you gotta show it some tough love...

    here's my truck w/ 3.5" glassworks fenders before and after long travel...
