    Trying to replace the front fenders on my 89 blazer and so far the best price i can find is $79 each free shiping at jc whit.
    Ebay they run $59+55ship
    and from all the catalogs listed on the links page in the tech forum the cheapest is $89 + $48 ship


    Now i was told i could get these for $35 new from the seller. This true for anyone or is this just another one of the many lies he told?

    I bought one of the JC Whitney fenders for about the price you stated-haven't hung it yet so cannot verify its quality. I doubt you can find a halfway decent new fender for much less than that, and if you could, I am not sure it would be worth using. As far as sheet metal body parts go that is pretty cheap. If it makes you feel better the OEM ones are close to $400 now to my knowledge. I have heard that Goodmark makes good aftermarket sheetmetal too but I am sure that they are more than JC Whitney also.

    I have purchased some with a few dents at JC Whitney for $18 each before. You have to walk into the store though.
