    My new project truck (92 ext cab 2500) which i am picking up needs a lot of body work. Not rust, just the body and interior has been beat to hell.

    i've priced out fiber glass, and fenders seem to be about 200 ea, bedsides seem to be about 250-300 ea.

    steel replacement fenders are 63 for non certified and 84 for certified CAPA.

    Anyone know of any better places to get them cheaper?

    Try www.absautosupply.com

    They have even better prices..
    they are located in Cleveland..
    so shipping may not be bad at all...

    The CAPA's are $48...and the others are $35.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    yeah, their fenders are cheap- but their bedsides are just as expensive as the fiberglass ones!
