    Does anyone have some pictures of fender flares on a '86/87 K5? Nothing are available overhere and some clear pictures are needed in order to make some for my truck.

    how much fender trim are we talking about with these? what parts do they cover? are they just from the front, over the top, and equidistant down the back, what if you have extremely cut fenders and want flares? so many questions.

    The flares I used there is NO cutting required, you just need a drill and a scewdriver.

    Mine required about 1.5" from the front and back of the wheel well and about 1" along the top.

    Man, those look sweet. How much more room do they give you?

    They give quite a bit more room in the rear. In the front, I still need some more room. I only trimmed back to the inner fender on the back side of the front opening. Soon I plan to trim back the brace supporting the bottom of the inner fender and trim back a couple more inches. The flares will flex back that much more. All in all, I am very pleased with them.

    got mine from Central 4WD. If I remember right they were a little over $300 for the set of four. That was the lowest price I could find.
