Fiberglass cracks very easy, is not very flexible(hence cracks). Urethane is what the OEM is and it's by far the best material out there. Although, there is a new fiberglass mix that is very flexible. Almost no one uses it yet. <_< Also you need to be really careful on the body kits as sometimes they are not usually perfectly symmetrical( hence may require a bit of sanding or grinding to fit properly.
