Steel fenders

Postby SpeedWagon » Tue Mar 07, 2006 11:47 am

Hello
I am looking for steel fenders for 12 wheels and tires, that has a lot of coverage, maybe 180 degrees of coverage to keep stone ships, road grime to a minimum.
Also what are some of your fender sources for those long flowing fenders I am seeing on a lot of these tear drop trailers.
Thank you for your help :dancing

You'll find that most all those 'long flowing fenders' are fiberglass, not steel. Mine are '37 chevy truck fenders but there are fenders similar that are made for teardrops and are sold at all your teardrop parts places. Check with Li'l Bear at http://www.teardrops.net/LilBear/parts.html or with R.W. Johnson. A good steel fender like mine will cost you upward of $500 each.

Have a good day.

Dave...RW Johnson has the Kit profile fenders made up in glass to fit the 12" tire...Ira got a quote from the guy 210$ with shipping for a pair to Fl....check out Rich's list above for the phone #...you're best contacting by phone...I have the full size ones, he has a great product!!! I don't know of anyone else that has them that size...but if that is the look you want...something else, they might look best with a drop axle so you don't have so much fender hanging below the body of the tear...Doug

I took a looked a the northern tool web site and they have some aluminum fenders that look like the coverage I am looking for, at a price I am not looking for. Those fiberglass fenders look great but will not work for this trailer, but maybe in the future....
The search goes on for a steel fender with 180 degrees of coverage.

...you will have to find your local REDNECK dealer, usually at a welding or auto part place or tjtrailers.com
