    I need 2 new rear Fender Flares. I am looking for some that are easy to install. Where could I buy some that will screw in the factory holes?

    I would go with bushwacker flares. My 96 had them and they fit real well.

    The problem with OEM is that the 01-04 flares (the ones you are probably referring to) snap into square holes in the body of the truck, which the 95.5-00 don't have. Go with bushwacker.

    I've seen these on eBay, the 1" oem style - would you say these give the look of the 98-00 Limited models?

    I would say they give the look of a 01-04 with the stock flares. Almost.

    I'll be listing a set of 4 on ebay later this week. Here they are on my 2000. They are stock TRD flares. They bolt on with no mods. I will supply the bolts.

    The Tonneau Cover is also for sale.

    I will get you some pics when I get home this afternoon. They look just like the factory flares, just 1/2" wider.

    As a nice touch, they come with a rubber weather strip to keep the flares from rubbing the paint.

    Man, I've been looking for TRD flares for awhile, what's the price going to be? When are you posting them up?

    Thanks!

    I plan to list them this weekend. They do have the rubber weather strip as well. They ARE Factory Toyota flares. I bought them from another forum member for $300 shipped. Put them on my truck for 2 months. I took them off just before Toyota bought back my truck for frame rust. I need to get as much as I can for them due to hard times with money. My hours have been cut at work, and my wife went from full time to part time on her job as well. I'd like to sell these to cover the cost for a Tonneau Cover which is just over $200. My new truck is a Double Cab with a short bed, so my old cover is to big. The Bushwackers aren't as nice, and cost almost $400. The OEM Toyota flares are a lot more. I wish I wasn't hard up for cash so I could give someone here a better deal. My ebay name is the same as here. They will be listed Saturday.
