They are made of urethane (95% positive). We had a group buy on Roush parts and IIRC, it was confirmed that they were urethane. It isn't ABS plastic, they make 'midwings' from that sometimes. It's DEFINITELY not fiberglass.

yeah lets yes, i had a 8 peice fiberglass body kit. It was the Q type one, and that only lasted threw the 1st winter... then when summer came.... i rip'd it all off and when with a mix of poly and fiberglass.... my front is a WW WRC bumer; pretty exspenive but the quality is well worth it. as for the rest, i've install all fiber glas but for some reason, ground dynamics makes a flexiable fibergalss material, and ites pretty thick. I would rate it in the middle of fiberglass and poly...:)

^^ yeah that fiberflex stuff I would agree is in the middle, definitely a new option that hasn't really grabbed on as much as it should. I've never worked with it before but wouldn't mind seeing it sometime.....
