will glass fenders look good on my 4x4?

Or will I look like a poser trying to be a pre runner? I bought the glass fenders for a great deal and now am deciding on putting them on or not.

My truck:
1993 ranger
extracab
white
4x4
a leveling kit for now 2"
maybe a body lift later.
running 31" and later running 33" A/T's


What is your guy's opinion?

Depends on what size tire you wanna run (width wise)

Price depends... New they're $350 shipped.

I think i might end up selling them to put the money towards a lift or rims and tires.

Whats a good price for them? It looks like they were painted black with a rattlecan and the paint is starting to peal otherwise they are in great shape.

Unless you need 'em (which it sounds like you don't) then I think they look dumb.

I found this and it is a 4x4. I figure I can get 33" and put a 4-5"lift on it and run the fenders in the front. Nice truck in my opinion.
here is the page

Ok now I'm thinking of another option here. i put them online for sale, but am thinking about kkeeping them now. I saw a truck with a half bumper that was cut right in half all the way down. The first reason for selling it was that I would of had to buy a bumper bar(light bar) and a skid plate to go with the fenders, now that I saw the half bumper I dont have to buy anything else to go with it.

It was kinda like this bumper here.

My bumper is like this. I was thinking about cutting it right under the black trim piece, right in half horizontally.

What do you guys think?

i wouldn't cut the bumper, your getting into lawsuit/law issues if you do that.

you could take the bumper valence(the lower plastic piece) off.

If you sell them try and do it locally. I couldn't find a way to ship them for under $100.

Not sure about the bumper cutting, its pretty easy to just bend them out a little to match the fender.



Its easy to mount them, just put them on and see what you think.
