So i picked up a set of the 3" cut out styler fender flares for my 1990 Toy pickup. They seem fairly rigid and look like they will do the trick. The reason i'm putting them on is because i got a warning from the 5.0 saying I needed them on. So to satisfy them I went and spent $520 at Kelowna truckworks and picked these \bad boys up.

Before the installation, tires sticking out about 2'' front and rear.

This is what you get, 4 fender flares, 2 rolls of gimping (bead of rubber), screws

After they're installed

Not too bad eh?

Let me know what you think, they're still growing on me. I don't know what to think still. They look too plasticky!

Look pretty good, I don't mind the look of them at all. I just wish they were tougher

Oh don't worry about scratches or dirt. I went up to james lake on saturday and did a little bushwacking with my bushwackers. They have some nice canadian pin stripes now. And the road up there was just a bumpy dirt storm haha!

Yeah man, I had to do lots of cutting, and grinding, and welding, and yeah I'm just kidding. It was a pretty easy install.

I have a 83' fully gusseted front axle I'm going to rebuild over the winter, and hopefully put it in by spring time. I'm going to gear it 4.88 while I'm replacing all the seals, and the brakes.

Yeah i've heard great things about the 5.29s in yotas, the thing is I just don't plan on putting too big of tires on (36 max), and a 4.88 will be perfect, while keeping it driveable on the highway. And do you have any pics of your 82?

They would make the coppers happy.......

If you plan on doing a front stinger and side rock sliders, then when you tie them in together just bend the pipe around them to protect them too.....similar to what I did on my 4runner

its roughly 200 rpm diff from 4.88 to 5.29s and some tsl 36s are a good 60 pounds each.

rough math would be around 2400rpm with 4.88s and 36s and 2600 with 5.29s doing 65mph:dontknow: but I'm crazy doing 4.88s and 31s :D :D

i ran my runner around with 5.29s and 33s and had
no problem with hiway
you would probably be happyer with 5.29 on 36s
toys that had 31s from factory had 4.88
so the 5.29s would be real close to stock with 35s or 36s
