    What's your truck?

    Summit has the Bushwacker cutout flares for 73-91 Blazers for $187 per pair.

    My local place wanted $299! :eek1:

    How much trimming did you do? The Bushwacker flares lose 1" at the front and back.

    If you removed more than that, you're going with garden trim. :D

    Hmmmm... hard to say. :thinking:

    It'd be close. Worse comes to worse, you could always get out the heat gun and re-form the Bushwackers to fit properly.

    How far do your tires stick out to the side? The Bushwackers will only give you an additional 2" of coverage.

    You could always do Bushwackers AND garden trim. :D

    How about a better back spaced wheel to tuck them in furture? Or just use the garden trim to pass inspection and then pull it back off.

    I have the bushwackers and love them. Watch here and PBB and you can find a used set for around $100-$150 for all four.
