    I came to the long travel suspension page because of the likelyhood of you guys removing your fenders. I removed the fender flares off of my 2011 pre runner and hate the holes left behind. Does anyone know of a solution to fill these holes with a set of plugs? Any other simple ideas to make it look better?

    thats the only think i can think of other than a new finder or bond o.

    edit: maybe a 5 luger will. i have seen a few guys want finder flares.

    We don't plug 'em, we either cut them or replace them with fiberglass. Might try removing the fender, tack weld some sheet metal to the backside of each hole, then fill in the front with bondo and paint it.

    have you thought about cutting them for more clearance? like i know relentless fab took off the flares, cut the fender about 1-1.5 and then put the flare back on. im presuming you took them off for clearance so i think that would be the cleanest way of doing this whole thing
    edit: member name, all.on.black. did the high clearance flare mod too

    Problem with that is to get to the holes you have to cut almost 5".

    I cut 3" out of mine & was still a little ways from the holes.
