    I know that it is done on other trucks, but ive never seen a 2nd gen tacoma with cut and pulled bedsides. I was just wondering if anyone had done it or knew of someone who had done it and how it turned out.

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm a big fan of bobbed/cage beds on 4x Tacomas. They look very rugged and bad ass in my opinion.

    No, I'm talking about pulling the bedsides out to provide more wheels coverage and clearance.

    I think fiberglass would be cheaper and easier

    Sorry I'm not made of money. I actually think if done right, it looks really good and very clean. And I'm not talking about doing it myself, if it does get done it will be done the right way.

    He doesn't want to go dually - he just wants to make his bedsides act as aftermarket fiberglass fenders (allowing for more coverage/clearance like on LT trucks) by pulling them out.

    No haha, definitely not adding another wheel. I think it looks really good on this tundra.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Really? $350 fenders or modifying your existing? Sounds like a no brainer as modifying existing seems like it could be more expensive to me - but go the route you feel is best!

    yeah I believe this is done a lot on LT fords and chevy's. It can look very clean if done right.

    I think it looks pretty good :notsure:

    Crawlers should have the fenders trimmed though IMO. LT looks good with pulled fenders.

    I think as long as it is cost effective, it's a great idea.

    Doesn't look too bad IMO.
