I have to admit some trucks look better with and some without front fenders. I love the look of my 1940 1.5 ton minus the fenders. It’s got that old school hot rod look.

How many here have gone fenderless?

Some trucks do look good without fenders; it depends on what the underpinning and hood look like with the fenders off. If the contours are subtle enough, it has the look of a highboy roadster.

Careful what your insurance might do to you in the event you clip a pedestrian
Or worse what their legal team may do to you
Local laws where I operate explicitly make that illegal

each to their own. I've run trucks with and without fenders (usually without before the fenders were worked over).

That truck might look a little more complete with the hood tops on (leaving the hood doors off).


Another quality post.

I'm a firm believer in drive what you like but, I'm former Law Enforcement and I can most of the time get a warning. 479 h.p.open wheel and 4 inch pipes get attention in the wrong places. DANG! Doc.

Totally agree, I have the hood just haven’t separated the sides yet.

Ron, many States have a weight requirement in order to run without fenders. Usually in the low to mid 2000s. Under the weight and they can get away with no fenders.🛠
