    very interesting... ive just never seen them. i was looking into the grabbers (honestly because of the red sidewall and the cool tread pattern) but these never came up..

    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.

    took the topper off, pulled the bed seats, reinstalled the bedrack. Got a short trip I'm trying to do, and then will be building some bed racks and needed the top off to get correct measurements.

    it does matter :facepalm:
    there can be fitment issues with brake calipers and backspacing will allow you to fit wider tires.

    most wheel sites have you select your vehicle make/model/year to narrow it down to what will fit your truck.
