    We are planning to buy a 2001 Tacoma extra cab that is silver ( lunar mist?) and it currently has the famous 01-04' black flares. We want to buy paired matching flares but do not know where to buy them. No aftermarket flares, stock ones only.

    So where can we buy them and how much can we expect to pay?


    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I don't think you can buy them pre-painted. Best bet would be to get the black ones, and get your local body shop to paint them for you, then install.

    I'd just get color matched spray paint and do it yourself.

    Save a lot of money on something that is inevitably going to get chipped up. Then you can just do touch up as needed.
