Fiberglassing?

Well, tonight, I hit a nice pot hole pretty hard...

So now, I have a cracked bedside. it's on the drivers side of the bed, the little corner closest to the front of the back tire. My question is...

Is this possible to fix? The corner is still there, but is kind of hanging.

Looks like it's time for either smaller tires or more lift.

never thought I would hear of someone hitting a pothole and cracking a flareside bed in a lifted ranger, something you expect from a lowered guy.

Should be an easy fix, get supplies form www.uscomposites.com, if it where me I would use expoxy resin for strength, the thickness of glass is really up to you and how many layers you want to lay some 1808 biax would really make that sucker strong but you could probably get away with some 2-3" cloth tape (depending on the crack). Sand good and make sure your glass is fully wetted out with no excess resin.
