Pre-Split Front End models come with the lower fender section (the part between the door and tire)
   separate. It is manufactured with a tongue & groove joint on both the panel and the front end, to
   help in closing alignment.
One Piece Front Ends do need the rear fender panel to be cut in order to utilize the hinge kit
   supplied.....They can be made to slide forward than tilt without cutting the fender, however, this
   depends on the tire size and will involve detailed planning and fabrication on the installers part.
 - The interior finish is Fiberglass texture - coated in black lacquer - it comes without wheel wells.
    Wheel wells cannot be completely attached to the front end as they will interfere with engine &

NOTE:  When ordering Light Weight version truck racing components are "Special Order" and

IMPORTANT - Please specify the type of racing that the unit will be used for, so we may build and reinforce your unit accordingly. Units manufactured for "Mud Bog" racing have a heavier roving on all edges to reduce the chance of tearing (under to stress of impact and mud load) and usually weigh 
10 - 15# more than a Drag Racing unit.  Units manufactured for "Sand Drag" or "Baja" style racing are built so as to be midway between the Street Drag and the Mud Bog units.
