    Good to know. I've been thinking about getting a Stargazer Rain Fly for my Tepui because I have skylights, but a solid rainfly with no windows. Maybe I'll hold off on that.

    Jungle flares or bushwackers may help to keep the wheels. They in their own right have aethstetic issues.

    I'm sure you know this, but beeswax on the zipper will help keep it smooth (after cleaning)

    The Jungle Flares don't look horrible, IMO. I like that they don't have all the reliefs for bolts that Bushwacker does. They are wider than Bushwacker tho.

    Jungle Flares are half the price of the Bushwacker flares too. $250 vs $519.

    Bushwacker Cutout Flares (can be installed without cutting from what I have read):

    Yeah, I'd clean it off before using it for sure. I've looked at the neoprene, but it feels expensive for what it is, and it would get super dirty as well and would be in the sun all the time. In the end, felt like six of one, half dozen of the other to me. ...wouldn't complain if I got one for free though, hahahhaaha

    Yes, bleh.
    :crapstorm:

    Yeah, not a fan. I'd love to trade mine to someone who wants the windows. Hopefully can get it taken care of in the next year...we'll see.

    Yeah, I looked into Bushwackers but not sure they'd stick out quite far enough. And Bushwacker couldn't tell me if the extended ones would give me an extra half inch compared to 98-00 or 01-04. And I'd need it compared to 01-04, which is already half an inch wider than 98-00.

    :thumbsup:

    Thanks for posting this. I'd never seen the Jungle Flares. I too am not a fan of the bolts on the really wide Bushwackers. The Jungles look a bit heavy to me though...of course, they'd have to be to stick out as far as necessary.
    :annoyed: Decisions.

    I will probably get the Jungle Flares at some point. According to the site, they extend a total of 6" from the fender, so are pretty wide. They are made from fiberglass as well, like the OEM 98-00 flares. They have additional pictures in the gallery as well, so be sure to check those out if you haven't already.

    Just put 01-04 flares on it and live with it. It's a little mud. Get over it :luvya:

    Could be the answer for sure. I wish there were more flare options.

    Yeah, I'll have to go look. They looked "OK" to me on the black truck. Look way too heavy on the green for my tastes.

    Yep, part of my OSK.

    Looked for some used 01-04, but haven't found a set yet. They are definitely not cheap, new.

    And, just because you've been jaded by the dirty-five, long travel life doesn't mean I have! You'll understand as you get a little older and smarter. I know this because you were already laughing at my situation compared to yours on this last trip. :p:luvya:

    Trail damage and enough fur to make many more dogs.
    I bought the neoprene for my hilift and ran it on the side of my rack for trips. I didnt keep i on the truck all the time. It faded in no time and doesnt look very good to me anymore. It does keep the dirt off all the mechanical parts though which is probably good for the jack if I need to use it. Its since been moved to the swing out and its not as exposed as on the rack.

    I think you'll find another set you like and have an easier time parting with your scs wheels. Heck could even see it as an opportunity to swap to new rubber too :spy:

    What can I say it was fun to be on other end of the stick for that :laugh:

    That said. Could've been worse haha

    I think with 01-04s and some cleaning very front mud flaps you'd be fine.

    Lots. Every night if we can, really. We all bring avocados now in order to up the frequency. Then it's a race to eat as much as possible before Monte and I polish it off. Usually takes less than 5 minutes, and I always hope the guac comes out when Monte's making the fire. :laughing:

    Honestly, it's Mike's salsa that makes the difference - homemade, that stuff is great - we have that every night for sure.

    No guac is safe when we are around :cool:

    Trip wouldn't be the same without the salsa.

    I think a GFC would fix the mud problem and the tent problem at the same time. :D

    It’s looks like y’all all have CB and ham antennas on the rigs. Is there a reason y’all mostly use CB on the trail?
