    I'd like to get some black fender flares for my truck, probably the bushwacker pocket style.

    Will I be facing any rubbing issues with the flares if I have rubbing on my frame as it is?
    Kinda worried the flares will NOT fit with my All-Pro rear bumper... Thoughts?
    I've only been able to find the option for the Access and regular Cab of my year, do double cabs take a different flare?

    I don't think so cuz the fendor flares are on the outside... I was thinking about getting them cuz i get a little rub but my buddy said that it wouldn't be much help if you want to decrease rubbing.... and yea the DCs have a different size flare... I have been looking for ones myself but they don't Have it for the ones we have yet.....

    you should park next to an access cab or reg. cab and see th differences in flares... i would try calling bushwacker and ask if they have what you want or if the ones for access/reg. cab would work

    Hey man,

    the bushwackers can be manipulated to fit the DCSB (lots of heating, shaping, heating, trimming, heating.... to fit the rears)

    As for the frame rub, they won't help at all!!! I'm running 285/65/18's on Moto Metals and still have to take it easy on hard reverse turns with 3" of lift.

    Like others have said, Bushwacker is supposed to be coming out with the ones that fit our pickups but no telling how much longer it's going to take. At this point, I'd wait it out but I've had mine for about 8 mos now.

    Good luck,

    Joe
