Bushtec no longer handles the front fender extension, to the best of my knowledge.

Tulsa had a bunch of them for sale awhile ago.

On the subject of front fender extentions. I have read somewhere of a concern for the fender extention cause a break or crack in the fender. Is that another rumor or is it a valid situation or concern?

I love the way the color matched extentions look.

I have had the color matched one from Road Trip Essentials (in the best color: Yellow!) for almost 10,000 miles. Still looks great and no sign of cracking. Great products, great people to work with.

RTE Here as well. Looks great, (actually looks stock) and no problems despite the nay sayers that talk about FFEs causing cracks.

Well, not to pour oil on the fire here, but extensions MAY cause fender cracks. I had two different kinds of extensions on Rio. The first one cracked the fender. I put the second one on with the braces that Preston provided free (thank you, John) and when I sold him, the fender had not cracked. I think it is a matter of a combination of a number of factors - length of the extension, whether you hit something on the road (trash), and perhaps something about the design of the fender itself.

Rather than poo-poo what others are saying, just be warned that there is a possibility that your front fender may crack with an extension. You take the risk and you may have no problems whatsoever, or you may wind up replacing your fender.
