The weather was questionable today - intermittent drizzles - but i did manage to remove the rest of the flares and fender linings from the passenger side.

Since my shop has kind of converted from "grill mode" to "flare mode" i decided to have at it and get the drivers side fabbed up today.

I've got a full batch of grills to wrap up so that will be my priority tomorrow - I've since condensed all of the flare material and gotten the shop set up back to grill mode again.

My main concern with the front flare was to allow for it to flow with the lines from the Elite plate bumper. Because of that I could not simply section out the 2' along the factory line of the bushwhacker flare.

I got a bit creative and utilized a section of the oversized bumper parts that I won't be needing to shape it.

I also used part of the cutoff of the back flare to fill in about a 2 1/2" section of the inside of the flare.

Here are the results using the untouched passenger flare for comparison purposes:



A closer shot of the front section :


And the back which I feel illustrates best the results of the sectioning:


I just shot the flare with some filler primer for now -it still needs a little more TLC before it will be ready to paint... I'm pretty sure I'm going to have them color matched.

Thanks,
~ Craig

Update:

Now that I have my current batch of grills complete I switched the shop ofer to "fender flare" mode again this evening.
I also sectioned the drivers side rear:


This one will take a bit to get set up right because like the front flare, I plan on creating a smooth transition into the bumper.

I'm trying to work out how is will sit. I'll post more pics tomorrow.

Also tried FASTENAL for new hardware to replace the "show' bolts. I was shooting for the same button torx head in chrome but an inch longer. They told me a minimum of 70 and with shipping it would be $180.00

I said I usually get kissed before I get fucked so no thank you!

Gonna do some more searching online this evening.

More to come.

So these are just 'custom modified' bushwhacker flares right?

I completed the drivers side rear flare today:



I'm still not 100% on the transition at the rear of the flare, but here you can really see how much bedside is gone with that High Clearance rear bumper...



This is a shot of the front to illustrate again the difference with the 2" section removed:



Here is a closer shot of how I finished the back of the flare where it meets with the wrap around part of the bumper:



It was off & on rain today so tomorrow I'll be cutting sheet metal and test mounting these up.

Thanks!
