    I have a very narrow garage and scraped the hell out of my passenger side rear fender flare. I feel like a tool, and I need a replacement. Dealer wants $450.

    Anyone got a better price?
    I don't like the looks of the bushwacker with the divots... rather have smooth.


    Alright, time to go puke/cry/howl/spaz a bit more

    They must have folded, that domain is up for sale. Doing a google search though... anyone have a part number?



    All I can claim is mild sleep depravation... and a small garage. I have to get out the door sideways when I park. My neighbor has a Tundra and I don't know how he gets in, but I do know he can't get the garage door down!

    Didn't see any on ebay, but nice idea on MJP... I'll throw a line his way.


    EDIT: No luck on the google search so far. :(

    I'm pretty sure the garage door frame did a cleaner job than I did with the sawzall where modifications are concerned.

    Even if the flare is pink, don't try to put it in the plastic container under the hood.

    It's silver (well, the good part is). Metal is silver. That means I can use it as a skid plate, right? :woot:

    I just saw some in the B/S/T. I didn't say why I was interested!

    Going to see if the collision department can fix it instead of replace. Maybe they can do some magic for less, because I didn't crack it or anything - just scrape it up

    My truck was hit & run this winter & my fender flare was damaged. I opted not to fix it exactly what you are running into. My friends shop fixed the bed side but had to use new clips to put the flare back on. Those are cheap either. I don't notice it since its on the passenger side :laugh:

    Good luck with the finding one used or getting yours fixed.
