Are you asking about body-kits? I have a fiberglass kit, and its a bit of a pain, I have scrapped mine several times, but it has held up. My rear bumper flew out the back of my friend's pickup truck at 55 mph with barely any damage.

Fiberglass is strong, but can crack and break a lot easier than urethane, however it is cheaper than urethane. Urethane is flexible, but I heard they lose their shape over time, and is a little more expensive than fiberglass, but is cheaper than Carbon Fiber.

Carbon Fiber is stronger and lighter, but more expensive than the other two.

DuraFlex is something that Extreme Dimensions has, I really don't know too much about it, but I believe it is flexible like urethane.

I hear FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) is the best (for bodykits anyway). :dunno:
