    Money in hand, going to call GlassWorks in the morning and order.

    Looking at the 4.5 fenders in gel black coating.

    Should I do it?

    Shop by Pope in my sig.

    supercharged with lots of midtravel bling.

    If you are not planning on long travel then I'd go 3.5, but that just me. Read the other posts about glassworks and dont be suprised if it takes a bit to get them. Otherwise there quality is great and I like mine.

    Well, I did measurments and with my spacers they should fill the 4.5. I'm worried that if I spend 450 or 500 on 3.5 I'll want 4.5 and end up regretting my purchase.

    For reference, my tire sticks over 3.5 inches from the fender. Which would leave about an inch left. I'm just not sure the size of the fenders without one in person for reference.

    Well Im planning on turning the heat on in the garage today, so if I can build up the motivation I will throw my 33x12.50 15's on 3" offset for a pic so you can get an idea.

    That looks so good. So I get an idea of your front width, how far are the rear tires past the flare?
