i have 6" buldge glassworks. you have to trim the fender to fit and get the clearnaces right around the doors and hood. but they will fit with a factory bumper.

you can look in my project thread and theres alot of pictures. no bumper on in any of the pictures though.

Steve: Zach is correct about the glass not being perfect. I have Hanneman's front fender's on my 99 and it did take some time to get things lined up and to this day they aren't "PERFECT"

I have 2.5 in rise with 6in flare. If I had to do it over, I would get rid of the rise.....here's some more up to date pictures:

Well I appreciate your honesty Zach, and I have said before. They are for some people and other's they aren't. I don't like the rise, but hey I got them for a dang good price, my truck had been rolled over so ya take the good with the bad...LOL....

Steve well your pretty much looking at my setup then. I have bilstein 7100's in the rear, 35x12.50x15's, Superlift, and a PA 3in B/L. And glass in the front. I plan on doing coil-over's in the front either Fox w/Eibach, or sway-away. Haven't figured that out yet. Good luck though

35's and no lift at all your fender wells will hate you

Steve, I found a link that might intrest you if you wanna go with glass front and rear:









http://www.mcneilracinginc.com/off-r...-00/index.htm#

I think that Zach is right if you wanna run 35's without a lift of any kind (suspension or body) this is going to be your best bet. 35's are pretty tall man, and I've come close to my side lug eating my rear stepside fender at full stuff.

Here is a member who ran and wheeled 35 claws with glassworks and no lift, he has a DBR kit now.

If the fenders have flare the bumper needs flared out to match it, not trimmed. Its pretty easy to bend. A large part of the clean look can be achieved by adding inner fenderwells made similar to gap guards from rubber, and of course gap guards if you have a BL and fiberglass.

Bumper bent out to match 3.5" flare



Inner fender with double lift and gap guards to clean it up.
