    I'm thinking next addition would possibly be Fender Flares. Anyone have any suggestions? I like the ones that come with the rivets. Tires are sticking out roughly 5 inches. Any help and suggestions are always greatly appreciated!!

    Yes, Bushwacker brand has caught my eye time to time. Any perks with the pocket style?

    They are good fitting and good quality. This is the 2nd Tundra that I have had some on. I have mine Line-X'ed. Install PPF to protect your paint when you do decide to install a set.

    I bought these off Amazon and they honestly look just like the bushwackers my buddy has on his truck. I couldn’t justify spending several hundred bucks for plastic so I took this risk and they’ve been great. I bought the black bolts as I didn’t want chrome. Also as stated above, paint protection is a must so I ordered that as well. All links below, hope that helps!

    Do you have a pic of the LineX FF to look at? Thinking of doing the same thing on mine before I put them on

    If your tires are sticking out 5 inches you are probably gonna have other issues to address before flares

    No problem. They are done in Line-X Premium. The white lines that you see are just wax buildup at the edge of the PPF film.

    5 inches of poke is a lot. When you move that much weight away from the axis point steering and control will be one of the first things you notice but bent spindles control arms and bushings and other suspension issues can and will arise at some point. It is your truck run it however makes you happy but I wouldn't not just cause I hate that look but because of the extra expenditures.
