    Are there 5 lug owners out there who would trade fenders & bedsides to get flares? Just asking....for now.

    I wouldn't. I like the clean lines of the fender and bedside on my 5-lug.

    I would... If I had a 2nd gen. That seems like an awful lot of work though.

    No flares!

    In about 15-20 years time, all the 2nd Gen Tacomas with fender flares will have a high chance of rusty fenders.

    Just take a look at all the 1st Gen 4Runners and a small percentage of 2nd Gen 4Runners. As time progresses, more 2nd Gen's will be affected.

    Plus I think they look better haha
