Rear fenders for my stepside?

I have an '81 J-10 stepside, and while wheeling up a slick climb, I slid into a tree and banged up the rear fiberglass fender my driver's side. I was wondering if there are replacment fenders out there or do I need to bust out the tiger hair and start patching?

The fender is still intact, just cracked a bit. It occured a couple years ago and I've been fine with it as is, but I'm about to do a big push for some long needed repairs and figure I should look into it. Thanks for the help!

I've never seen step side panels online. Personally, if it still has a shape I'd just repair the cracks, its more than likely going to be cheaper.

Sorry for the stupid question...did you install fiberglass fenders aftermarket or are the later J-10's fiberglass (my J2000 seems to be all steel)?

Nope, not aftermarket. The later ones came with the fiberglass fenders.

That's really the direction I'm leaning at this point. Even if I found them, even used, they would cost an arm and a leg.

How much would it cost to just swap out the whole bed?
