My fenders ran me $380 from hannemann fiberglass, but there's many others to choose from.
Look up Kar-tek off-road and click body panels. I had a bad experience with glassworks unlimited but they are a good company too. Basically set a budget and look around.

It was cheaper but all fiberglass needs work to be perfect. Now kartek makes urethane fenders though, no cracks

Default prerunner?

Front fenders go from 300-400 for a pair. Bedsides 4-550. Fitment depends on how much time you take mounting them. Sometimes a set just gets warped a bit while curing, so it's a crap shoot. Off road fiberglass from any company is notorious for needing bodywork to look perfect. I've had good experiences and quality from fiberwerx, others haven't. Same with glassworks, hanneman, McNeil, etc. no company has a 100% perfect rap sheet.

Easiest/cheapest is to get some extended beams that use a lift coil. Coilovers are way more expensive and require fabrication to make shock hoops to mount them and work correctly.

Heres the cheapest I've seen http://www.andysautosport.com/ford/2...me_dimensions/ they make good fiberglass bodykits and fenders for tuner cars, so this should be fine.

i have an 05 with a 3.0, and i'm running 33x12.5 tires with 4.10 gears. i get around 17-18mpg on the freeway, but i do my best to cruise right at 65 or slower if i hit a hill.

for better info on desert trucks, check out dezertrangers.com, there is a lot of info if you SEARCH for it. not many people on this site are into the speed aspect of off roading, they mostly seem to like mud and crawling (not that it's a bad thing).
Amen!!! Just joined. Going to desert rangers. I'm looking for a 00 ranger full long travel kit. Any one selling a used one you know of?!
