    I have a dented fender flare (stock) and was wondering where I could get a new one?

    Dark Knight could you say more about how to use this? I am looking for the driver's side rear fender flare for my '98 Xtra Cab Ltd. I did a search on that site after finding your recommendation, and ended up confused. Maybe I'm just being stupid. But is what I'm calling a "flare" what they are calling an "extension" or "fender molding"?

    I've got the red truck (can't think of the color name right now) with color matched fender flares. I'd love to get one from a recycler... Anyway, I'm going to attach the result of my search. I've looked at the codes on their site, but I still can't tell if I'm looking at what I need or not.

    yea its definitely hard to figure out some of the parts sometimes. You are doing everything correct, the only thing I would suggest is on the page with the search criteria look through all the part names listed. In many cases there are 2 or 3 names for the same part. Other then that be very broad with all other search criteria. Also look for anything that has to do with "bed" parts. The particular part you are searching may be like finding a needle in a hay stack since it is so specific.

    Okay; so then I guess when you think you might be close you just call them? Is that what you've done looking for parts for your old truck? Thanks for helping to walk me through this!

    Hope this isn't considered a thread hijack...

    yep! 80% of the time I have to call, the other 20% you can get someone to answer on the live chat. As soon as you press the live chat button, it will notify the lot where the part is and if they are available they will usually automatically respond with a price and you can ask more questions from there.

    Dark Knight- Thanks a lot. I've never done this before (the whole "recycler" thing) via online. I used to live in a place (Seattle) that had plenty of good junk yards, as I thought of them. Now I live in the mountains of NC, pretty far from most places, so I thought the online approach might be good. Thanks for the encouragement and the first hand experience.

    I'll get to it after the Super Bowl. :cool:
