I have had some cheap plastic ones and nothing but trouble. I have these now and am very happy: Minimizer: Home of the toughest, lightest, most durable lineup of truck fenders, toolboxes, and accessories on the planet.

Full fenders on both axles but somehow I broke a plastic fitting on the trailer this morning......-25 and a 40K wind......brrrr! Haven't lost any rear windows on the day-cabs since they got put on though.

Bought mine with my trucks at Beaver. I think Fort Garry Industries carries them and likely most truck dealers could get them.

Had minimizer fenders on a truck and really liked them. Bought another truck and with the look of the truck I wanted shiny fenders so I went with stainless steel because they were half the cost of the chrome covered poly fenders from minimizer. The extra weight of the stainless has already caused multiple mounting bolts to break and one of the fenders has gotten wrecked because of it. Wish I had gone with the Minimizers in the first place and just went with black as the cost would have been similar to the stainless.

Fort Garry sells them. I know before Macarthur's in Brandon was sold to CTS they carried them too and were cheaper than Fort Garry

Minimizers are great and really not that expensive. I use the single wheel ones. They are $125 each for the fender itself. Lifetime warranty for the most part.

Most use plastic grads in Australia, they seem to hold up well. Chrome and stainless look good till the first scratch.

For a full set with brackets I got quoted $1550 bucks that's all four and the fancy ones I can get stainless ones for $1200
