fiberglass is a lot easier to fix if it gets damaged, however, in small collisions, Urethane will flex and pop back. the Fiberglass will tend to hold it's shape better over time, Urethane sags over time, especially with the wings west kits. both are great, it's just up to you as to which kit looks the best for your ride. thumbsup

i guess it all comes down to how careful you are when you drive.. i mean if you NEED a rubbermaid garbage can strapped to the front of your car then go with poly..but if you know where the front of your car is and you never park "over" parking barriers then hey Fiberglass is for you personally i want Fiberglass because is lighter and im not a crazy whacked out driver that rides around with my bumper half on and cracked to all hell from hitting stuff lol ive seen people riding around like that and im like damn dude..you should have gotten out of the way when the cops came rofl rofl rofl so weight+driving style= poly/fiber...i think thats the mathmatical equastion for it happywink happywink

urethane can flex, but then again, your body shop should have added enough flex additive to your paint and clear to prevent this. Fiberglass can flex too, just not as much before it'll crack. just drive safe and watch out for animals and you'll do great with Fiberglass thumbsup

urethane is stronger but once you break it youll have to buy a whole new set. Fiberglass on the other hand is easy to repair because all you have to do it reinforce it plus Fiberglass is lighter
