Fiberglass??

Hey y'all,

Well my pickup got hit a couple days ago. Got T-boned pulling out of a parking lot. She hit me behind my rear tire and messed up my driver's bedside and rear bumper.



I was planning on making a new rear bumper to match my front anyway so that's no biggie. But what I am wondering is if I should go ahead and put fiberglass bedsides and fenders on anyway. I have been thinking about it for awhile anyway and this is an opportune time. But I keep going back and forth, so i want your opinions.

These are them on a shortbed. Mine is a longbed obviously. I wouldnt be lifting mine anywhere near that much either. I would just lift it a tiny bit to clear some larger tires.

Hannemann Fiberglass Inc.





What do y'all think?

Well I built my front bumper and have the steel sitting the shop to build my rear one. Just haven't had time to make it yet.

Yeah and it looks killer going down the road rob.

I dont know man its a tough call but i think if insurance will give you enough to fix it, then i would go the fiberglass route, i think they look slick

Sorry to hear about your luck damn women drivers!

Yeah, I will get enough from insurance to cover it for both the bedsides and the fenders so that why I am leaning towards it. Still just not 100 percent. haha..
