Fiberglass flat fenders

Has anyone ever seen these? I found them while checking out thinkjeep.com. I wish they had a better picture that showed them on a Jeep. Too much money IMO, but would be nice if you need to replace your fenders.

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

I've thought about going fiberglass...but with a full flip front end. My father damn near bought me one as a present when I mentioned it...he helps with a lot of my Jeep work, and wanted to drop one on my CJ so he wouldn't have to lean over the fenders.....He's a heavy equipment mechanic, and works on lots of Kenworths and Peterbilts, so that may have something to do with it!

Only thing, is how would you mount a winch with a flip nose?

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

anything fiberglass on a jeep seems silly- i mean the kind of terrain i wheel in would eat that stuff for breakfast. STEEL for me [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

I wish they had some better shots of those, they look pretty decent. Sas, some of us live in areas where they use alot of salt on the roads in the winter, and have climates that promote rust as well.

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

When I first saw em I laughed. I asked myself who in their right mind would buy those when you can cut yours up for nothing? I guess there are some retards in the world. They do look quite nice though. But like Sas the wouldn't last me too long.

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

I have to disagree.. I ran fiberglass fenders for a long time on my cj, and it was a trail only rig.. they bent when rocks hit them, and the only time I ever got a crack was when I rolled it.... even then I just fiberglassed them back together, sandd them down and they looked like new. I sold the rolled body for $1000 after I rolled it because it still looked that good.

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

Thats true, I just wonder how they would hold up banging against trees all day. The trails around here are real tight, then again i do have some stuff to protect the body, just not the fenders. But you do make a good point chris.

Re: Fiberglass flat fenders

I went out with my glass tub and fenders on a tree rubbing trail all day w/o a problem, they kind of flex and move, the steel tubs/fenders on two Cj5's with us came back dented from the same trees.
