Frequently Asked Questions
What are these guards, what do they do, what are they made of?
These are a full replacement, fibreglass/composite offroad panels, with sizes from 4.5" to 5" wider than standard with aggressive styling & larger wheel arching for offroad wheels & tyres.
Also known as fenders, flared guards, pumped guards, bedsides, tub sides, ute sides, stylesides, whatever you want to call them!
What Vehicles do you do?
Currently 89-97 & 97-04 Hilux
Can you freight?
Absolutely. We have existing freight networks that ship all over Australia and the rates are very reasonable.
Are they hard to fit?
Whilst they are a bolt on replacement guard, the nature of fibreglass manufacture means there will be some massaging required to fit perfectly. You may need to grind down thicker parts underneath, trim pieces here & there & make adjustments as required. If you are building a prerunner, you'll have the skills to complete this. If this sounds like a challenge, please consider other options.
What wheels fill these guards?
For the Hilux's pictured typically they will be shown with a 33" or 35" tyre. Our Hilux 4.5"/5" guards will suit 15 x 10 -44 rims with 35x12.5 tyres or a 15x8 -22 33x10.5 tyre... For long travel and SAS trucks, the offset will depend on the application of course, but the wheel arch will comfortably house even a 37" tyre...
Are they legal?
These are an offroad only item.
Do they need paint?
These are a fibreglass part, so as good as they look in pic's, they do need finishing & preparation. We'd definitely recommend the guards be painted, not just because they will look better, but to protect your investment. Australian sun is not sympathetic!
