Default Anybody using Fiberwerx fenders?

I've been interested in the fiberwerx fenders, especially the ones that extend 4.5". I'm also wondering what kind of setup I would need as far as wheels and suspension are concerned, I wasn't going to do anything crazy, I just like the look of them.

And if you have any pictures, that would be great.

for it to look right you will need a long travel suspension and 35/37s. Its not just a 4.5" rise, but a 4-6" wider fender. If you dont fill up the space it will look real goofy with tiny tires and massive flares.

long travel kits are designed for those who do hardcore off roading. cost: $5-8k+ installed.

You can always look for a more mild flared fender for your truck that wouldn't require as much tire/suspension to fill. Fiberwerx makes top notch fiberglass but it all depends on how the truck is set up. I have seen some stock trucks with fiberglass and big tires, sitting low actually look good. But @01f1502wd is right. They are typically designed and used for people running long travel kits mainly for tire clearance.
