What does everybody use for flares besides the 300.00 ones from Trail  Tough or Jeep flares. What about some of the universal rubber ones that are like on a roll. All I have left are the metal pieces under the stock flares?

On a whole most folks seem to use Trail Tough or Jeep flares ....

If they answer the phone the Zuk Boys are an option .. but good luck there.

if you want to keep a semi stock look, calmini flares look good. I like the way zukboys flares look but may seem difficult to get them. from what i read, most use jeep flares or bushwhackers

I got some rubber fender flares on mine. I can't remember for sure, but i think they cost less than $200 Canadian. I used to work at a place that makes logging trucks and I got them through the warehouse guy there. Any place that deals with semi trucks should be able to get some. I attached them with sheet metal screws and Sikaflex (marine adhesive sealant).

Home Depot or Lowe's sells plastic flower bed edging that works real well  [idea] If your not concerned about building a bling bling ride! :o

JC Whitney has Pacer Flexy Flares $45.00 per pair. They look great and hold up well.

I agree that is the perfered look i would love to have. Except i would make it about 1/4 the way to work before i would be taking a cab, and picking it up at the impound the next day.

Oh how i wish we had the same laws as arizona. Oh well.
Every right you don't exercise is one you wont miss when they take it away.

MAn you should move a state over to the left.  I could get away with that all day long, and I'm about to.

I did that on my S10, looked ok, but not great.
