    I'll be running those, but my truck is a truck built for hauling ass and flying high.

    There was an old boy around these parts back in the day running the K5 bedsides. He liked them. I might go to them someday.

    my problem with the fiberglass is that it doesnt bend, it breaks. (with some exceptions). steel fenders are cheap, and chances are your truck has them already. dont want to screw up a $500 bedside or fender. will they sell them individually if you screw one up?

    That particular shop's owner is pretty much a dick. I ordered a carbon fiber panel from him, and I never recieved it. He kept coming up with excuse after excuse, and when I wanted a refund, I had a hard time getting my $$ back. Id recommend anyone else.

    from what I have been "told" (take it with a grain of salt)

    Haimann (sp?) Fiberglass was one of the originators of the fiberglass fenders.

    The owner and operator of Glassworks used to be an employee of Haimann.

    I have a set of the front and rears- (2 years now, still not installed!), 5" wide in the rear and 3" wide in the front (10" wider in the rear, 6" wider in the front total). Their quality is pretty good, and you deal with a live person who is quite helpful. They packed it and shipped it well, and got to me sooner than I expected.

    When you live in the rust belt, that steel fender is a goner, sooner or later. :mad: The glass *could* last forever and is lighter. Plus you get bigger wheel openings.
