    Nice, real nice. And how much did you pay for the fronts? I may just have to "divert" some academy funds this fall and Hanneman's and Glassworks up. hehehe. Are the fronts bolt-on also?

  6. sweat!!! about how much more wheel clearance do you get over stock? also how tough are they? could they take any kind of trail abuse or are they just for desert running? would hate to bust up some $400 dollar fenders on some tree branches. looks good, man. dig the custome cage too, very clean!

    Looks great! Did they "bolt up" or require you to fab mounts?

    That's pretty sweet!
    You saw this right <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.off-roadweb.com/>http://www.off-roadweb.com/</A>
    Mid way down the page is a pre runner K5 with glass fenders.
    I was hoping they would be cheaper. But low run hand made stuff isusualy up there.

    It's not my damn planet monkey boy!

    The fronts I have run about $200 each.....they are "race style" with no inner wells and requrre some fabing to mount up.....they do use a couple of stock holes to get them in place. They are Hanneman's and are nice quality, fairly heavy with a nice gelcoat. The rears don't even sorta bolt up......I left enuff of my old quarter(about 2") to provide a mounting flange for the Dzus springs....you can see it in the trimmed shot. These are fairly flimsy until you get 'em bolted/Dzused or other wise fastened down. After that they seem OK. The finish is very poor.....I'm sure Glassworks makes better stuff but these are pretty bad. Nothing a little primer and sanding won't cure, but not near as nice as the Hannemans. They actually sell for $350 for the pair.....shipping bumps 'em up to $405. If I was any kind of 'glass man I could pull a mold off these if enuff people were interested........ As far as clearance goes...I'm runnin' 35" tires on 10 wide rims with about three inches of lift....on a 2WD....no way the tires can hit the 'glass. Thanks for the positive comments.....I got the passenger side on today....with Dzus buttons....much better than screws!! I'll be over for my brew on Sunday if you're gonna be around laketex.

    It would be nice if someone would line up some quality 'glass for us. Don't know how many people would be interested besides me.
