    Awhile back I tried desperately to figure out what fenders I wanted. I tried McNeils, Fiberwerx, glassworks, etc. and HATED the customer service. I called Hannemann up and they were GREAT! everytime I called. I saw 1 person who had them and still wasnt too sure. I bit the bullet and got them, and they are great! I dont know how to post pictures in the feed but I'll try. If it doesnt work, I have them all uploaded on my page for anyone to look at. Hopefully it helps someone else in my same situation, and make an easier decision. ( I got the bumper caps as well, which are attached to the bumper)

    Looks good. Just wondering if fiberglass fenders are easy to fix if there are cuts or chunks?

    Intersting....they look good! so did you install them yourself? easy install? how was the overall fitment and/or how much trimming did you need to do?

    Thanks! Unfortunately, I did not put them on myself, don't trust myself haha. I did my homework and wish I had put them on myself after the fact cuz it is as easy as unscrewing a couple screws under the hood and inside the fender by the door hinge. They aren't a dead perfect match but what fiberglass has exact perfect lines? It wasn't anything near me regretting them. Once I got them painted the couple (2 or 3) "noticeable" spots seemed to disappear even more. I love 'em and would do it all over again. As we speak I'm workin on modding my own splash guards in the fender since stock ones are not wide enough. I'll post the write up when I'm done cuz I've looked everywhere and no one seems to have done it ( that I could find anyway)

    once I cut the rear bedsides, the rear splashguards no longer fit, so I actually took those and cut them to fit the front, since the fronts were too narrow to fit properly with the glass.

    The rear one cut to fit work just as well as the front ones work with stock fenders. and it saves a TON of headache when having to clean the truck now since it doesnt get all gunked up in the glass.

    They are not two pieces, but it would be as simple as taping the flare before paint. Ill try to get some pics today

    How she sits today. The bumper caps were deleted when the stock bumper left, so this shows how the fenders look with a tube bumper and 35's (not sure if I added the Fox 2.5 w/ resi's before or after this pic)

    This first pic is the rear of the wheel well. This is the driver REAR wheel well guard, cut to fit the front. the orig front guards were not wide enough to fit. All this takes is a few times of guess and check cutting to make it fit. I just used self tapping screws periodically to help hold it in. I made sure to cut it wide enough so there is actually nothing holding the guards in on the fender side itself, they are just resting on the lip of the glass fender (so make sure you leave it wide enough so it can overhand on that and secure itself). Hope these help.

    I think that may work, but the thickness is going to be the unknown. I think the abs will be a little more difficult to shape IMO. I really like cutting the rear guards since they already have the perfect bend in it already. I would go to a pick a part type lot and get the rears from a tacoma if I really needed it.

    I do not. I cut 2.5 inches out of my bedside sheet metal, and cut 2 inches off my "pop off" fenders.

    I sanded the sheetmetal, repainted it with the touch up paint from toyota and then used door trim to line the cut I made on the plastic fender so it would look clean and put the fender back on. so I have about 2-2.5 extra room for my 35's to tuck in the wheel well. I did this because before I made these cuts, I warped the sheet metal on my passenger rear side, which made me do the cutting, in efforts to not rip off my bedside while wheelin haha.

    Couldn't be happier with my choice. I had @allmotorrex help me with the cutting initially since he had done it already. The first cut's the hardest to make haha :thumbsup:
