There is no warranty on fitment. These are offroad racing fiberglass. they arent for show trucks or perfect fitment.

i paid 490 shipped for my mcneil fenders. shipped all the way from cali to ontario canada, taxes in. if your looking for perfect fitment, get out the bondo, because this is about as good as it gets!

personally ive seen the best fitment through mcneil and fiberwerx, BUT it depends which fender. Mcneil 6" arent as good as their 3". when mine are in ill have plenty of how-to pics and afterwards pics. ill rock the white fender look for a few days, then paint them up.

Thanks, It was either glass or flares. Yet somehow flares look like crap on those trucks. Plus its cool to do something different

im the second owner to my glass. i paid $100 for the fenders and a year latter i traded a bunch of ranger interior panels for the hood. as for fitment its as good as its going to get. the last pic was taken after i installed the hood bumps and all the rest are before.

Quality and good fiberglass products

Yes I agree $300 is CHEAP. However if you pay a little more maybe you would get show quality and better fit, some of the best off-road racers/NASCAR car fiberglass you see is great quality & looks and not that much more than cheap parts. shop around. Your truck looks OK. =brian

you are correct and the glass you have is it. mcqueen glass is spot on and close to perfect. even there raptor conversion for the ranger is the best in the glass industry. with there glass you do have to pay quiet a bit more from what i have heard.

when i picked you my glass a couple year back i was not worried about the fitment. if i was i would have replaced my mangled fenders with stock panels. at the time it was about cost and it was cheaper for me to go to glass then it was to go back to stock.

cost of quality fenders.

I paid $450.00 a pair for mcqueen fenders =fit and quality outstanding when compared to mcneils and other I looked at. I picked up at their shop in Gardena,CA. The guy Knows his stuff and no B/S. I have installed his Raptor style hood on my 06 ranger=love it.

Swickwake. Thank you for your complement, although they are not that much more expensive. The
money you save on the purchase price, you more than loose by doing finnishwork on the cheaper ones.

And, Nate, you never answered my PM.

there is no "finishing work". you must be thinking mine looks like swicks, but thats not correct. glassworks and such need finishing, fiberwerx and mcneil dont.

and thats because im not interested. my business is with McNeil and BC SuperTrucks.

hood and fenders clip

Thats a fiberglass hood & fender assembly, like Mcneils,Note the windsheild decal says Fiberwerx. You have the latch it down on the side. The one's I have seen seam to flop around on the freeway once the air get under it.
It looks OK.

Sorry should have been a lil more clear on that comment. I meant that hood would be perfect for me as far as the room under the hood,but does someone make it in a bolt on "hood only" for our stock trucks?

the white truck is the one on mcneils site. again, i dont care for how deep the body line is on the fender.

i wish i could get one of those with a 3-4 inch bulge. what do you guys think?
Where do i get those bumpers!?
