    For those of you guys who have black/gray fenders, i love that look..

    I haven't had the opportunity to see a wrapped fender, but i assume it would come out good..

    My questions are:
    1) If it's wrapped, can you tell that it's been wrapped?
    2) How much are OEM black/gray fenders?
    3) Approximatley how much does it cost to wrap fenders?

    1) I'm sure you can't really tell...but I've never seen anyone o it.
    2) About 270 for EACH front and 340 or so for EACH back.
    3) ::shrug::

    Good luck.

    I should have a set of the OEM black fenders for sale in about 3 weeks. If you're interested you can shoot me a PM so I can remember your name when I pull them off. Truck only has about 5k miles on it, and has only seen the highway so they're just like new.

    I don't know what shipping from Louisiana to California is going to run you though, but I can check.

    Wrap is cheaper and looks very good. Toyota thought that I had the Rugged Trail when I take it in for service. If mr.ernst can get you the fenders that would work too...becareful the tabs break easy.

    $200 to wrap the 4 fendors in whatever color you want. Mine are in Flat Black. Install in San Diego. Make a trip out of it and I'll go wheeling with you after.

    thanks for the post tri..

    When they wrapped it, they wrapped it while your fenders were on, right? I'm just wondering if they cut into the molding/strip that sits between your fender and body of the car when wrapping... that black rubber strip..

    It is cut right before the molding as the vinyl will not stick to the molding. He is very careful not to damage the mold or fender. come to a meet and you can see mine. Let me know if you have any more question.
