sweet, do you know how much they opened the wheel wells vs stock?
looks like right up too the inner fender...
what kind of latteral load can a fiberglass fender withstand? does it yield? or would it simply either bounce back or fracture?
looks higher up to the body line and would they have to be different or modded inner fenders to protrude out farther, or does the fiberglass come back in to mee the inner? I'd just ditch the inner anyways
front marker light looks alot shorter also
how much are they?
hmmmm, I like those, I bet they would look pretty cool on my crew cab......

How were the iner-fenders handled? Where they opened up too, or cut up, or left stock?
i will try and answer all the questions. as far as how much i am not sure you can check on their website. i am pretty much family at the hannemann household so my price would not apply to you..haha..
they are three inches wider on each side. it opens the stock wheel well more than the inner fender. the fiberglass fenders are made to get rid of the inner wheel well but i decided to keep them. i just beat the crap out of them with a hammer until they kind of fit and used weather stripping to fill in the gap.
the fenders are strong as hell. they will take way more to break than the stock ones. i hit trees and stuff all the time not even a scratch. they do flex a bit also. these things are bad. they look sweet. i am working with harold hannemann to make some rear panels for the k5 but it looks like i might have to do most the work myself.
if there are any more questions feel free to ask.
How was fitting those up? I want a pair!
they were not bad i did mine myself. but you do have to seperate the stock fender from the fender frame. so you have to drill out the spot welds. but it is not all that bad. well worth the work
wouldn't mind some for my tow rig... hook a brotha up.
Cheaper than what Glassworks offers????????????
Let us know how that goes.
