    GQ oversized guard & flares

    Gíday guys

    I know there are a few older threads on this but thereís not much recent info, so Iím just seeing if anyone knows about any new products on the market.

    So Iíve got a GQ with a safari snorkel. Iíll be getting rid of this soon for a short or bonnet entry 4Ē snorkel, so Iím going to be needing a new front left guard. I thought while I do this I may as well sort my flare/wheel coverage issue.

    DNA off-road do a fibreglass oversized guard, but unfortunately they only make them with the standard snorkel hole and donít offer it without the hole cut out. So wonít work for my snorkel option.

    Is anybody aware of any companies making larger guards for the GQ? Also, for those that have gone a standard size fibreglass guard, how did you find the fitment? Everything align ok? Any ideas on approx weight savings? Not sure how much weight I would save which would be a bonus but Iím concerned of not going a genuine panel and it looking off.

    Second part is if I go a standard panel, whatís my options for wide flares? Iím not looking for Flexi/rubber flares, or garden strip, I want something with a bit of quality. I know of Kut snake, but Iím really not a fan of their look. They make the GQ look too much like a Jeep imo. I do like the Grunt flares design, but after contacting them it seems they may not be making them anyone and after a few searches it seems their quality and value for money is very questionable.

    Iíve contacted Zoltan from the patrol4x4 forum and heís not making any for the GQ with no timeframe of when or even if heís going to be making them. Any other options that Iím not aware of?

    Cheers
    Rohan

    You'd probably have to import some from Iceland mate. All their Patrols will be running bigger flares. who though, Im not sure.
