Why keep it when you run the chance of voiding it anyways? and if you do your own maintenance anyways, use the cash for upgrades

Update: Pulled the trigger on Poison Spyder front (narrow) and rear crusher fenders, hopefully will be installed and painted before Xmas. Stay tuned.

Poison Spyder narrow fenders arrived! Even though I won't be installing for a bit I had to unbox them. Brought them up to my bedroom also, they're sleeping with me until installed ....

Now I need to find a heated garage to paint them in or a powder coating shop that doesn't want an arm and a leg.

Powder coating is pretty and expensive. If you paint them the inevetible touch-up's are easier. Have you checked on prices to bedline them?

After getting a price quote of $400+ on powder coating I most likely will be painting them myself. I will check on prices for Bedlining though. I have had some decent luck with duplicolor bed armor , that's held up really well on my front bumper. Thanks for the ideas !

What made you choose these over ACE Engineering. Curious because metal tube fenders are on my list to upgrade at some point.

On a side note what castor angle are you running on your RK lift.
