It looks OK.
that actually is made by mcneil, he is probably running fiberworks bedsides cause i couldnt find a one piece on their site that resembled it. its one of their 8 inch class 7 open on piece designs. i just realized that today actually. scroll down in this link and it is the yellow ranger.

http://www.mcneilracinginc.com/off-r...1-2003-ranger/

i decided if i stick with the eb44 that im just going to run the 6 inch like the white truck i posted and maybe a small spacer. but if i go full width (i found a 14bolt dually w 4:56 gears for 200 bucks the other day. 63.5"wms-wms) then ill probably locate a d60 and run the 8 inch like the red ranger with a few changes of course cause theres a couple things i dont like about it. namely the louvers and the lack of center drop down. both the 6 and 8 inch versions are the same price at 800.

you should make up a hoop bracket and bolt or tack it in behind the fender to push it out and even out the body line where it meets up with the door. ill post up a pic of what I mean.........

ok. i already had to make a 3/4" spacer for the bottom bolt as it sucked in far too much. i could just make the spacer larger to bring the bottom out more

drivers side hood line up looks like you could turn the rubber bumps at the front up about a !/4" to get the front of the hood up 1/8th and put a washer in at the back of the hood where it bolts to the hinges. that should even the hood right out.

yep ill probably do that. ive already moved the bumpers up a bit on the drivers side. the pass side fit with no effort at all, just a bit of mild sanding.

the drivers side needed about an hour of filing the edges to clear the door properly. where they sit right now im happy with, anything more is just gravy. gotta remember their offroad racing glass, so its not gonna be EXACT.

Icon14 meeting.and fenders

Nate. How did your Ont meeting go?? hope you had a large turn out, need pixs.
Seems you had a little work making your fenders fit correctly, Who told you replacement fiberglass fender are racing type??and don't fit like stock. Any company who sells replacement fiberglass parts should make sure the part fits without adjustment just like Ford replacement fenders. The fenders I got fit first time and only required to drill out mounting holes, no adjustments, great fit and finish, Sure they cost $100 more. your truck is looking better and after you match paint the fenders I'm sure you"ll be happy.

trouble with these is it adds up quick. these cost me nearly 500 shipped when ordering two pairs. if i got them my self, they would have been $575 shipped. add paint for 2-300, and next thing i know i have nearly $1,000 fenders. im fine spending 45 minutes with a file to shave down the body line and adjust them, over another $100+.

the meet was a great hit, theres a ton of pictures. had a total of 24 trucks, everything from turbo 3.0L to a sas'd 2008.












fenders go in for paint monday morning, then it will be a bit till my next upgrades, but keep an eye on my build page "budget prerunner"
