Wow! Those look sweet too!! How does it really install though? It looks like a whole new side piece instead of just an add-on?

WW -- those bushwacker flares won't work on your truck. They only work on the "long bed" trucks (reg cabs, acc cabs, and double cab long beds) -- nothing for short bed from bushwacker yet.

Yep, it replaces your entire fender. I think the fronts bolt straight on, but the rears require just a little extra work.

Of course, you get them raw. Then you gotta take them to a body shop to be painted.... More involved than fender flares, but they look kick ass!

Damn! I can't believe they don't make them for double cab short beds yet! Those are one of the most popular Tacoma styles out there too!!! Oh well, any idea on when they might be coming out with them Mike?

on the short bed the very front of the flare would not be completely rounded, it would have a flat front edge

Yeah for reals! Well I just sent them an e-mail to their customer service department so I'll see what they say and relay it back to you guys "if" they get back to me. If they don't in a couple of days, I'm just going to call them direct.

Definitely a pain in the ass to install the glass fenders. Give yourself an honest weekend for the front fenders and have your Dremel handy.

We'll see how the rear glass install goes after I get my next delivery. That same delivery will take care of the goofiness of such wide fenders over such a narrow front suspension, but that's for my build thread...
