    I am looking for a manufacturer for "pocket style" fender flares for an 08 Tacoma double cab. It seems that Bushmaster's pocket style fender flares won't fit my truck. I Like the rugged look of the pocket style flares. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Bushwacker pocket style flares have a bolt on look without drilling holes, they mount just like the factory flares.

    I just got off of the phone with Bushwacker. They said the don't make fender flares for the shortbed double cab because the rear fender and the double cab are too close togther. WTF??? ha ha. That sucks! You would think someone would design a fender flare for the shortbed double cab just to make me happy!!

    those flares look bad ass on that truck. I think I am just going to order them and have a buddy of mine try and modify them a bit. Hopefully he can do it, being that he works at body shop LOL
