    Hey guys, well my truck is finally getting the wrath of rock chips from my nitto grapplers. They are 285X70X17, so they are quite wide. I want to get bushwhacker fender flares, but they are kinda fugly and expensive. Any alternatives?

    P.S. The stock mud flaps suck for protection, any other mud flaps that are compatible with this truck? Like rubber ones pre cut :p?

    You might be able to find wider rubber mud flaps at an auto parts store for cheap. They won't be for a Tacoma specifically but they'll work. Otherwise, sliders or some sort of side step (not sure how much you wheel your truck) might be a nice addition and will protect the sides.

    Most of my rock issues have been offroad at the power lines around here, there are so many tiny little pellets off and on the roads. Sliders, like from avid offroad?

    Yes. Sliders have more open gaps in them though so some rocks will still make it through to your paint (as opposed to steps which are solid). One of the vendors fabbed a set of sliders with a step plate to close the gaps. It might have been Demello. Check out the vendor section, there are a lot of options if you go for sliders. Even my nerf bars do a decent job protecting the sides of the truck and they're just a 3" round bar.

    I'm on gravel roads every day so I got OEM side steps right away.
    I'm glad I did because rocks fling up below the OEM flaps all the time (lift doesn't help any).
