    I have done a search and the only pictures I have found do not show the truck from the side very well. Anyone have a good pictures of a Blazer with them installed and the truck is 90 degree to you?

    I know many of you don't like them I just want to see them installed.

    Thanks,
    Rod

    Top picture is what I am looking for but since it is in the shade it is a little hard to see. Any one got this angle but clear and in the light?

    those aint factory options... thats for sure. Bushwacker fender flares are spendy... and Im not 100% sure what they are even supposed to do other than get hit with rocks/trees and break.

    they keep a rig with big tires legal. in california, for example, tires may not exceed the body of the vehicle. flares also let you cut up your body for more tire clearance.

    people actually get pulled over for that in the Peoples Republik of Kalifornia? If I run mudflaps that extend as far as the rubber does I don't have any problems. Once I trugify my rig, I'll probably just make some removable fenders to keep the cops happy... yank 'em when I actually use the beast. Bushwackers are ok in a 1980s chromed leaf spring sort of way... but for a rig that actually gets used offroad I wouldn't run them cause they cost to much not to care about when they get hit and break. ;) :)

    They are costly and the do like to break. I crack the passenger front every time I go wheeling. This last time, I fiberglassed the inside to repair it. I also had to add washers in the glass to get the mounting holes back. They look purty, but I would not do it again.
