I grabbed these from McNeil Racing today after work. One more piece to the puzzle before the LT gets installed. Still have to install and check fitment before sending out to paint. Is raptor lining the inside work the extra effort for added rigidity?

Steel it maybe? Would keep the rocks from sand blasting them from the inside out.

Will bed liner make the them super heavy?
I’ve heard people doing bed liner on the inside before. Not sure I understand all the benefits. Seems like if they get hit hard they’ll crack anyways. Maybe I’m wrong.

I dunno. They are way lighter than the 96-04 Hanneman Taco fenders I had a while ago that I never ended up mounting. Those were twice the weight these are. Just more layers of fiberglass I guess. I think having them lined is more beneficial to the bedsides because of flexing and cracking on prerunners. Front fenders, maybe it’s not a big deal except for chipping. Not sure I want to have them professionally painted and then obliterated on the inside from small rocks, but I also hate doing paint prep work and want them to look decent so spray paiting is outta the question too.

All my glass is sprayed with Raptor liner. It helps stiffen them up and protects them from erosion better. One thing I’ve noticed is that I am not getting any of those Star cracks from rocks pinging off the inside of the fenders. I had them on my last set that did not have any Raptor liner on the inside. I use Raptor because I get it for free. If I had to pay for it Line-x is the way to go. You can have them spray it a bit thinner to save weight.

Just the other day I coming home from work driving down Warner and come to one of the stop lights. I look over to my right and see a guy in a Jeep I believe with dark windows and these ditch lights? :confused:

More to the point, it just looked WAY outta place and HIGHLY likely the guy doesn't even off-road, much less the vehicle. It just looked to me like he put the ditch lights on just to "look cool"? :rolledeyes::doh:

I see a LOT of good looking rigs here in Huntington Beach, draped with really expensive shi*, but not a single spec of dust to look at? :confused2:
Your hoodie has more on it then all those trucks put together.
