Bushwacker Flares and OEM Mud Flaps

Does anyone know if you can use your OEM Flaps with BushWacker Flares ?

yeah. they have bolt heads glued on the outside to give the bolt on appearance, but still mount just like stock on the clips

Oh yeah, I knew that part but do you know how the quality is on the bushwackers? I don't know anyone that has them on a Tacoma where I live.

never seen them, cancelled my order when i found out they were not bolt on. I think they stick out a little more, but from my research they are no better than the stocks and not worth the money.

i would like some fender flares, i dont like the glass options we have, something sturdy and bolt-on that sticks out a bit more would be ideal.

look what they did for old tacos:

Oh okay got yah. Now from the looks of that picture, they stick out more and even extend down more. Now I am assuming if that is the case, your truck will look lower then when it was with the stock fenders.

if they were $20 i'd say go for it.. but for $400+- you could do a lot to improve the performance and/or appearance

I dont think they extend down (it looks like it in the pic) but they extend out

I think they look nice on the tacoma when its just for looks but $400 is a little ridiculous not to mention you still have to get them color matched.

The factory flares extend down too. Id like some flares that look stock (no bolts) extend almost not at all (vs the .5" or so drop of the factory flares) and are about 1" wider.
