    No way. All you would need is 6" flares or 8"

    Ur right 6"-8" is all u need but don think they make them for dbl cabs...not 100% on that

    Quote from his build;

    Its actually funny that you post those because I am picking up bedsides from Glassworks tomorrow. Only problem was I read from people on here running the 4" fenders with tundra axles that they were destroying their fenders. So I found a guy that works for Glassworks on DR and he gave me a good price to make some 6" flairs. Thanks for lookin out man

    You're confusing me with someone else.
    I live in Northern Nevada, not SoCal.
    Also the sticker in my rear window says "Stay back 100 meters or you will be shot"...shortly followed up by the same phrase in Sanskrit....not Score.

    Ding! Custom 6" bedsides. Part of the problem I think is just the angle the picture was taken, as if it was low to the ground. The other part of the problem is I don't think the bedsides were lined up all the way when mounted. They are sitting about a 1" high. Glass is a pain in the ass to get mounted up and lined up right. Observe:

    For the record....a Tundra axle "can" work with 4.5" bedsides, it just won't work with a f67 leaf pack unless you bump early. With the 50T, the pack goes negative arch right where you want to bump it, it just doesn't tuck under the bedsides:

    Not sure if there are any writeups. I bought the stuff through auto-interior.com for $135 and it came as 1 big piece. Needed to be trimmed down considerably and took a while but turned out nice.

    No doesn't seem to be. Dynamat is next on my list though.

    As it was said before they are 6 inch flair bedsides in order to tuck the tundra rear axle. The body lines do not match up perfectly but are pretty close and will just take a little more adjustment to be perfect. Perfectly straight body lines from ALL angles is sacrificed when they flair out as far as they do.

    Just a side note the tires are the short course race tires. I picked them up for a killer deal and decided to run them as test fitters until I buy a new set. They have weird road manners as expected but of course hook up awesome in the dirt.
