    Removed the fender flares from our 2006 Tundra as they were a weird color. Looking for some pics or thoughts on ideas to replace.....paint them? purchase another brand???....concerned that the ones i see online are wide enough to cover the holes in the body for the clips????.......anybody do anything else.......thought i saw someone say they might fill the holes with bolts......might get the same look as a bolt on without the width????.......any recommendations?????

    They ain’t much out there for the double cabs. Best option is to re-paint your oem’s. That’s what I’m gonna do for mine. I don’t think the bolts would ever look right if you just shove a bolt through

    agree on the bolts but was hoping to hear from anyone who tried it......probably need to order new "rubber gasket" that goes along edge between flare and body......probably best to go with OEM on that too???........what kind of paint are you gonna try??

    I bedlined the ones on my 2001 Tacoma... came out great witg adhesion promotor and duplicolor bedliner in a can. If I go see the truck later today I’ll get pictures


    The gasket can be had for the flares from the dealer

    i like the spray on bedliner idea......definitely need the new gasket and probably some new clips too.......got some shopping and prep work to do for sure.....the OEM flares are just so much wider than any other ones I can find from another source......
