TRD front

ok...is fiberglass really that bad of an idea. everyone says to get urethane...i can get urethan rear and sides but the front is going to cost like 800 for urethane...unless somebody knows a better site...otherwise should i go with the fiberglass front for 250?

As long as you dont plan on curbing or slamming it into things you should be fine. Besides, if the fiberglass is strong then you shouldnt even have to worry about anything. Just dont drive like a maniac over huge bumps and stuff thumbsup

fiberglass is nicer than urethane IMO
lighter, paints easier, won't warp or sag over time...

i have the authentic TRD kit on my car, and believe me i've had a few bumps here and there and YOU CANNOT TELL!
you get what you pay for...
i dont see how it can sag over time?
maybe if it's a replica or poorly made or something?

I got the factory TRD kit when I bought my car. Even being as careful as possible, I've scrapped/bottomed out probably a dozen times with it. Unless you crawl under the car, you can't even tell. If you want to keep it in show condition though, get the authentic TRD front and just cut out a metal guard to put on over the paint to keep it from scraping.
