    I found this page Glassworks for Chevy
    They only show front fenders for 73-87 with update kit , using new IFS rig front grille .They do sell rear bedsides. I have seen a post on this before. Will try to dig that up /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Nope you saw it for sure . I have the back issue somewhere , perhaps I can dig it up and see where those fenders came from

    I found the company that did the fenders on that Blazer in the mag ,




    That magazine Blazer is near the bottom of the page, looks like lots of room for tires on minimal lift

    Is it just me or do those fenders not match the body lines what so ever?

    Optical illusion? They aren't exactly stock , but its a quick way to get room without a lot of work. Of course theyre fiberglass , and you need to brace the front from the firewall to the radiator support .

    You can see the body line does go a little into the fender here :

    Worse yet, its like stock sized tires, chrome wagon wheels, and mismatched tires. an otherwise very clean setup

    Its probably sitting pretty now with bigger tires and rims , that pic is several years old now. They picked that up for a song and did a one day dent repair and spray

    Not trying to piss anyone off but they just aren't doing anything for me. They don't seem to look right IMHO, kind of ugly.

    i like fiberglass fenders, but i dont care for the ones on that black black blazer. i forget where i saw them , but one of those companys makes two different versions. one like the black one, and one where the bulge doesnt come out till 4 or 5 inches below the top. that style fits the lines of the truck alot better.
    that 185K blazer is badass! ive seen that review before and it makes me drool every time. almost makes me want to go find a TTB and basterdize my truck.

    Thanks for the help, and that other silver looking one does look a lot better then the black one. Thanks again.
