Default New truck accessories are getting ugly as Sin

Okay so I know I'm stuck in the 90s and all, but this looks ridiculous.

id rather put fiberglass fenders on. you cut the hell out of the fender, bolt some ugly plate steel on (might be aluminum) and still have no coverage of the wider tire/wheel.

That truck ugliest damn thing ive seen thus far of these new trucks....

I like it for a one off show truck itís definitely different and stands out. I just donít see wanting a truck to look like that. When I first saw it I though it was some massive bumper that tied into an exoskeleton.

Speaking of which James, not all fiberglass is created equal, is there a company you would suggest that makes front/back flares for our trucks?

nope, they all suck and need a good body man to make them fit nice or build them up/shave down. im sure you know. Glassworks sold out and is now advance fiberglass concepts. Glassworks use to be the better of the mfg but they went down hill fast when they were not sending product out. Fiberworks is eh. Trailer Products is junk. Not sure if Hannamen is still in business, im running their fenders on my truck but those are from 2002. Mcneil is good stuff and they will work with you too. there may be some new companies out there. We put GTS fenders on the race cummins and i was very disappointed in how they were shipped. needed lots of repair work and finish marginal for what was spent on them. I dont think they make flared fenders though.

Sounds par the course for glass... I am on the fence on going that direction when I get my bed fixed up. Have slowly leaned back towards suspension/off-road performance as opposed to being low and fast. I am hoping to spend more time getting out to the desert races.
