Alot of people like the wider fenders...but personally, I think I will narrow the rear end on my truck, or get townasty's from TnT. I just think that unless done extremely well, it messes up the proportions on a truck like mine(squarebody chevy). Now I think the newer trucks pull off the wider look better than the older ones.

I can pick up a srw rear end from pull it yards around here for 100 bucks....and with an afternoon of fab work I can swap it took me about 2 weeks of layering fiberglass to get my fenders like I wanted them( all I done was raised mine....not widen) and I had way over 100 bucks in fiberglass and resin

Yeah. I'm still in the process of finishing mine and all I got left is the air pockets that formed in the body filler. But I gotta say, I can't get over lookin at that wide rear end every time I walk outside or walk to it. It's just sick. But there is a ton of work involved in extending the fenders

If you had to do it again which way would you go?

Id def go with the shorter rear.....i can weld and fab alot faster than i can fiberglass.....and as of right now im hoping to pick up some stock fenders to just bolt back on my truck cause my new one isnt bodied and i dont need raised fenders anymore

Shorter rear. But, I'm not at home so tools and connections are limited.

only raised here, and you see where the "stock" wheels fit.. will need either narrow rear or widen the fenders as well.
