    I got my wheels in this weekend - 10" wide Rock Crawlers with 3.75" backspacing. Thay are REALLY WIDE. They stick out farther than I expected, so now I'm going to have to get some serious flares. I considered the Conveyor-belt, build my own option, but I think I would rather buy some aftermarket flares that allow some cut-out of the fender wells.

    Does anyone have the Bushwacker Cut-out flares with a picture I can see? Particularly on the 2nd Gen body. Even Bushwacker.com does not have a picture.

    I need to see this before spending $325 bones on this.

    By the way - 3.75" backspacing is about the most I could have used. I think 4" backspacing might have rubbed the steering linkage on my truck.

    Thanks.

    That's because it is Geocities. Geocites limits the amount of traffic to a site. My FTP isn't working either, or I'd post it. I'll post the picture from home tonight.

    Just go to the members rides area and search for "stomp". I think you will find them in Storm Troopers pictures.

    <font color=blue>Geocities and everyone else will not let you link to files stored on they're space, because then they're advertising doesn't get seen. I have some pics of the flares on my dad's truck but nowhere to upload them to. He has 38x15x15 TSL's on 15x10 4 1/8" backspace wheels and the flares cover the whole tire. Send my and email and I'll reply back with a few pics

    Those are pretty nice flares. I wonder how much fender gets cut and how big tires can fit with the stock springs, no lift and just cutting the fenders. I had a friend who did that with an old full size cherokee and it was pretty cool. He built it for fishing on the beaches at Cape Cod. Big tires and lower center of gravity. Never seen that on a K5 before.

    I have some pictures of mine at http://coloradok5.com/gallery/Fullsize they are a pain in the arse when rock crawlin and goin on narrow trails. I was on a trail in S.D. where 3 of the flairs had been ripped off by the time I got to the end. It wasn't much longer after that I decided they had to go.

    I agree... they break way to easy. Not durable enough for rough wheeling. Street truck, good. Wheeler, bad.

    I read an article about a year ago about the survivability of these flares. Guy was a Jeeper, rock crawling in his XJ Cherokee. Said he ripped a set off rock crawling, so the next set, he filled them with spray foam (the insulation kind), and coated them with Herculiner. He said they were holding up great and it was a big change from before.

    I think he did something with the way he was mounting them to the truck too. However I can't remember what it was./forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
