    that sounds easy, how well do you think they would hold up with it being a daily driver? i think it would look badass if i got the fenders and bedsides.

    Build a bed cage and attach the bedsides to the cage with dzus fasteners.........

    Glue on? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    So are you seriously looking to turn this thing into something offroadable, or just hanging 'glass and looking the part?

    Do you actually plan on doing anything with it, cause 'glass on a stock truck looks [​IMG]

    Most of the 'glass is bulged, which means it sticks out further out than the stock fender. Most of the 'glass is pretty stout, but I wouldn't go through the trauma of hanging it if it was just for looks.

    I'd like to get a single cab short bed, put a 7" 2wd lift on it and like 35 MT/Rs with flare fenders. Hop up the motor and make it actually fast. Would be a poser but I'd like it. And I said bolt and glue the fenders.

    Umm, the fenders either bolt on or are held by dzus fasteners. You don't glue them on.

    Sawzall the fenders, slap on some 37's and leave the body as is. Then wheel it now and then.../forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]They are held on with bolts... the glue just helps.
