    Looking for some oem(not any bushwacker stuff) 2001-04 flares for my 2000. Mine has the chrome ones and they're a bit tacky. I have seen that the black flares are extremely rare and expensive and so far I've only found them on partsgeek for about $400. Is this the only way to obtain these? Thanks for help

    anyone know where I can buy all new clips for the flares? Planning on taking them off spraying them black and re-installing them.

    So your not interested in the OEM fiberglass ones pre 2001?

    The pre 2001 OEM flares bolt from the under side inside the wheel well area and not the body itself like the 2001 forwards

    Make sure to take a pic after pulling the flares off before pulling the old clips. They have a particular installation order.

    Hmm I actually didn't know they made these. I was under the impression it was only the chrome ones on pre 2001 and thought the black were introduced with the facelift. I'll look into them

    These are the fiberglass flares that were used on the TRD MODELS from 1998-2000,

    They use the same holes as the thin chrome one that you have on now
