Fiberwerx is a very well used fiberglass on our model rangers.
They seem to be very popular. It all depends on taste I guess. Some like Hanneman, Fiberwerx, Perris, Glassworks Unlimited, Maniak. It all depends on what kind of flare you are looking for as well as rise.

Why?
Those are for trucks with extreme Longtravel and a Low COG. That's actually safer the way that trucks set up then most prerunners you will see...

My hood is Fiberwerx.. Jason is a good guy.. now the hood.. well.. the fit sucks, there are many many large flaws in the glass/gelcoat, the gelcoat is discoloring badly.. and it looks like crap sitting next to my Glassworks fenders.. these are just honest observations from an actuall owner.

Now, I have seen TONS and TONS of great GlasswerX fenders, not sure if I just got a bad hood or what, but I'd say go for it, price is right!

I like that F-150 Conversion or the Ranger. And those 10 inch flares just look dumb, I would rather run no fenders than those things.

When it comes to the point where you need those, You've come to a point on your truck where you care less about looks and more about performance

Fiberwerx makes a good product, all hand laid and mostly great quality ("mostly" because of what was stated above).

That white Ranger is one of my fav's too Cass.

I put a fender on my sisters rolla after she killed bambi and it only took me like 15min to put it on and line it up. Don't know if it's more difficult with the rangers tho.

Being pre-drilled won't always mean a perfect fit. Every truck is a bit different, so expect to do "some" fabbing.

do you guys think the pre runner fenders would look dumb on a step side? like, leave the step side alone and just add new front bumpers? or in order for it to look right, do you NEED flared rear fenders as well?
