Question Question: about Kerscher the front kit....is it fiberglass or plastic?

Hello all,
I was interested in buying a Kerscher front bumper kit, but I have been hearing that their made out of fiber glass. Does anyone know if this is true? If so, are they sturdy, or fairly fragile? thanx

i know they are fiberglass, but don't know about how sturdy it is. Whenever you buy fiberglass bodykits your always gonna run into quality issues

Sure I will, I will post some pictures too. I also go the Kerscher rear too. But now that I saw the GT wide body kit, man I wish they have that for sale too. It's endless of $$ spending.

im sellin mine check the for sale forum.. but yea it feels pretty strong to me, and seems flexible too! The only problems ive ran into is the paint chipping from the rocks on the road The Kerscher front bumper sits about the same height as stock bumper, and if you wanted a lower look, than u would have to put some splitters underneath it. I wouldnt worry about the fiberglass issue, because i dont think u would be able to crack it without smashing into something really hard. If you want to see some pics of it, check out my photo album http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/bk8943/ls...=/front+bumper
