    This is that edging chit from Home Depot. Tools required; scissors, SS screws and washers.
    YES/NO?

    no. You dont even need flairs man. Let alone ones that dont look very nice. Now, if you had tires that stuck out past the body and needed flairs that that would be a good, cheap, durable, and flexable idea. But on your rig my vote is NO...

    Do a search for BigPappB. He used some rubber flairng he bought online somewhere (by the foot) and it looked damn good!! If I find the link I'll post it up.

    Lawn edging = bad idea IMO. Your 'burb deserves better.

    Watch PBB. Bushwackers show up several times a year. I bought mine used and cheap, patched them up and sprayed them with cheap bedliner and they looked gret IMO.

    That link looks alot like Flexy Flares. The 3" wide flexys have the addition of a wire run through the outside bead as well.

    Have to do some measurin' & figgerin' for costwise.
