Question Fender Flares for a Flareside?

I've never seen them, and apparently, you can order them. I just thought it would be difficult considering where the gas cap is. Any suggestions or pics???

Come to think of it, I don't think I've actually seen a Flareside of our Gen of trucks with aftermarket fender flares. I'd have to assume for the big ones (Bushwackers, etc.), that they'd have to do a "cut out" on the flare for the gas cap similar to what they put on midsize trucks. I can't seem to place which truck I'm thinking of.

Like the tacoma has. I have seen the flareside f-150 with fender flares. A guy i used to ride skidoos with had an 04 red f150 extended cab lifted 6" with aftermarket flares. Dont know where he got them though but they are definately out there.

Thats a very good job by that guy! Not much of a mechanic much less a detailer, so I would have to have someone else do the trimming for me, as that guys job looks like it was definately done by a professional...lol. Except for the small gap he has. The truck looks great though, thanks for that link!

That's it. I'm not too good when it comes to midsize trucks, or imports in general.

Ya, I'll definitely keep it in mind. Don't think I'll do the trimming myself, cause again, I'd just rather have a professional do it, and I'll install the rest myself. Looks easy enough.
