    Are the rear wheel wells wider on a 79 than an 84? I got some bushwacker cutouts for my 84 and they are about 6" to wide.

    The cutouts are made for you to cut you wheel whells to fit bigger tires, but covers up the cutting marks. They are supose to be that way. Just cut the fenders to the contours of the cutouts.

    Bushwackers look a lot better with the spacers in the rear.

    He means wheel spacers to stick the wheels out a little. If you use 1.5 inch wheel spacers on each side it will make the front and rear tires stick out the same.

    Re: Wheel Wells.....(Fender Flares)

    What type or brand of flares people using? I think the bushwackers are a bit big...Xenon's look ok, but wonder what other alturnativbes there are since we are on the subject.

    No problem. BTW use a sawsall, and go slow. Take your time at it will turn out real good. Just make sure to draw an outline of where you are cutting.

    Thansk for the info. I was thinkin they might be too big too, but after seeing them on others and holdin these up to mine, I really like the look. I was thinkin of screwin them on and not using the pop rivets.

    Just curious why you're putting them on? 35s will look real small with them.
