Anybody know if you can put a GTS/Alltrac fender on a vert? Toyota offers different fenders for the vert than it does the coupe/hatch. 1sttoyota doesn't show part numbers for cross reference. Dammit!

Joe used regular fenders on a `vert a few years ago. He did say there was something different. I can't recall what he said. I think it might have been where the sideskirt goes.

Skirt/mudguard area is different.

Just put an ST coupe fender next to a vert fender. It's different how it mounts to the body behind/under the mud flap. The standard bolts on a non-vert bolt vertically underneath, the vert fender go in horizontal. The reason is a rocker panel brace is welded the length of the rocker panel to for reinforcement. I was able to trim and modify the ST fender very easily with a pair of tin snips to make it fit. Best part is the mod is under the mud flap, so you'll never see it! Almost made a $700 mistake ordering the GTS fenders.

Glad you didn't take that green fender to Knoxvegas, Murg.

I have posted pics of a vert that had gts fenders from Europe. The pic of the savage body kit on a vert has gts front fenders and their own rear fender kit.

I am going to do that to a set of WB fenders. I posted the question before I had the opportunity to try the sacrificial fender. GTS fenders should be here tomorrow. Get them fitted this weekend and painted next weekend. Expect a DIY write up.
