Bushwacker pocket flares? One step down from the cut outs.

i dont think they make pocket flares for rangers and if they did itd be one really pretty penny
most of their flares they make are close to the size of stock ones so if you want pocket style you might try and get some of the 08 sport/fx4? flares

Here is a pic of my truck a while back with the same set up as you have with the bushwacker cut outs and i hated it. they got banged up on everything because they stuck out so far, they look horrible and make your truck look smaller almost stock-like size. took them off and put the stockers back on.


Here is the same setup with the stock flares. looks way better IMO

Well if you have full width axles they look just fine. Butcher your truck? Hey, you want to play, you gotta pay, lol.

My truck in no way looks small.

Actually, my truck looks better than yours -- it's stupid to keep small flares if you have full size axles on a daily driver. As they say: stupid is as stupid does.

Do a full width SAS and let's see how you like driving it and how long you get away with it.

Why you have to say it's "stupid" I don't understand. Say you don't like it fine.

Personally I think you're pretty rude.

I thought the rubber sticking out past the fenders was illegal in all 50 states, making flares mandatory for vehichles with wide axles/tires. I personally dig flares, and they help save your paint too. I like the way your truck looks, n3lz ...looks like a killer combo off road.

i didn't say it IS stupid i said i THINKG it LOOKS stupid. re read it next time.

and YES i think it would be pretty damn awesome to have my tires stick out that much and i would LOVE driving it!! thats gotta be on my top 3 favorite trucks on here. guess what, the other 2 have the tires sticking out as well.

and i will get away with it in the states i want to live in, IE. Colorado or Texas where the lift laws have to do with head light height.. not how far your tires can stick out.


why is it stupid for small flares? the big ones are just one more thing to get torn off in a tight squeeze, and its $400 i didn't feel was necessary to have torn off/cracked/shattered. also i'm not the only one on here that likes my tires to stick out. i understand people like their paint, i haven't had an issue with my paint and tires sticking out yet.

oh yea.. "my truck looks better than yours" and your calling ME rude? HA! sure its nice because of the SAS but there's also stuff that doesnt look that good, if i cared that much i could have mine looking a lot better, i could have a new bumper, i could finish the bed trim, i would put the fender back on.. i'll have a new headlight soon, new header panel and then i can put my grill back on. once i get out of school and get a job i can build a front bumper ect, im fuc*ing sorry im a college student right now and i dont feel its all that important to get a new flashy bumper.
