Those are the questions we asked ourselves when we started Advanced Fiberglass Concepts. Like our name suggests, this all started as a concept - as an abstract idea of “what if?” That’s because when we started, the off-road racing industry wasn’t considered a “true sport.” Daily drivers and weekend warriors had incredibly limited options when it came to building race trucks and prerunners. Fenders came cracked from shipping over the border or were made of cheap materials, bedsides warped and wilted. Body panels were generic and not designed to fit specific makes, models, and years.
Car body panels are mainly manufactured in plastic, steel, or aluminum. So why fiberglass for aftermarket body parts? Fiberglass is lightweight, strong, and resistant to bending. Unlike plastic, which is poured into a mold where it cools and hardens, fiberglass is a combination of several materials that work together to make the entire product stronger. The main components in fiberglass is thread-like strands of glass are laid across one another randomly to create a mat. This is truly a material that is greater than the sum of its parts. Fiberglass is exponentially stronger than the materials that create it are on their own, and that’s why we use fiberglass in our body panels.
We know that these fiberglass body parts are doing more than driving to work on a Wednesday afternoon. Our truck body parts are designed to rage down mountains, blow through snow, ravage rocky terrain, and fly through dunes like a knife through butter. We deliver truck panels that can not only handle this terrain but also rise up to tougher challenges with every ride for years.
