    I have an 01 pre runner x-cab. My mirrors are the body color but my fenders are black and I really want them to be body-colored as well (silver lunar mist.) Is anyone looking to sell there's or does anyone know of a website where I can order them from?

    I only see chrome or matte black. Before spending hundreds of dollars on new ones I would get some color matched plastic paint and try it yourself.

    You'll probably have to paint them yourself. Thats what Im gonna do. Theres a local paint store here that will match your color in a rattle can.

    Had a friend of mine who owns his own auto body & painting business do mine. I'll post some pics of the flares on my truck later.

    Thanks!

    Also, plan on buying new fender clips and rubber seals....most of the clips will break when you pull off the flares and the old rubbers a couple of them shrank, especially the one by the gas door.
