DRW conversion question

I've been looking around at different options for a DRW conversion. I know Arrowcraft has been used with success as well as dullayfendersusa.com. I'm just wondering if there are different options for the fenders themselves?

OE replacement fenders can be had from various places: Speedy Auto Parts

And from what I see I would just need the OE-style hardware. I would imagine that everything could be had from the dealer but I'm not sure. I'm not sure if this link will work but here is the rails for mounting the top portion of the fender:www.partsguyed.com

Other than the rail, I'm not sure what else is needed to secure the fender. Is it all bolts or are there clips of some sort involved?

Is there any kind of hardware "kit" out there that would aid the process or could I just pick up stuff from a hardware store?

The only thing I'm worried about at this point is securing the fenders to my existing box. The other stuff(axles, lighting, etc) seems pretty straight forward or there is enough info other there to make sense of it.


Any help would be awesome.




Thanks in advance.



Derrick

I would think you could get a used complete bed for less than the fenders new.

Here's one

Yeah, I will keep an eye out on great prices like that but they seem to be few and far between. Most I've seen are $1k+ and that's just not worth it. Adding the fenders to my existing bed doesn't seem too tough as long as I have all the correct hardware...

Thanks for the link!

Take your pick. San Diego for the next month, New Orleans for the month following, and Seattle after that. We're in the middle of transfer season in the Coast Guard.

Damn, that's unfortunate. I have been strongly considering making mine single wheel. Swap for swap.

Hmmmm, well don't count out the idea. I'm not opposed to road trips... Do you have pics of your rig posted anywhere?

This is how mine currently sits:
