Do you know how thick they are? Or have a link to the manufacturers site, not familiar with GEN and googling didn't help.

Dollars for donuts they meant either GENuine or GENeric. Considering he (Abe?) has aftermarket series wing plates for $20, I'd say these are genuine. Either way, they are used and show little/no damage so they must be of decent quality/thickness. Hard to go wrong for that kind of money. But I could be wrong. It's happened.....once or twice, depending on who you ask. Don't ask my wife!!! ;-)

Genuine for sure and they're certainly thick enough to not have to worry about standing on them.

David thanks for the help. You are correct about the genuine. I am not at the office and can't measure , but they are very thick and in great shape.

It looks like Jim is the buyer and they will be going to a good home. Thanks Jim and Defender Source.

Genuine is always heavier gauge. I really need this set to replace the cheapos that came on my truck. If someone wanted this set they can have mine for the price of shipping.

Jim- are yours identical to the ones listed, including the holes?

I don't know if the holes are in the same place or not. The key difference is that the genuine ones are made so that the the wingtop grilles mount on top of the protectors and with the aftermarket ones I have just have a bigger hole so that they avoid the grille entirely.
