Sorry this took so long. I've been busy and just got around to getting them on.

How's the fit and finish on those? Are they as easy to install as they advertise them to be? Do the fit flush? I've heard others that say there is a small gap for dirt to get behind, causing rust out over the long term?

Thanks,

terrific

The fit and finish is perfect. The more I look at them the more I am impressed. As far as the install, I don't know. When someone says, "Hey, I can put those on for ya" and doesn't charge me for the labor, I don't argue. (Thanks Jeff!)

You can still install the snorkel. Ive seen it done very will, and I plan to do so myself ( I have the bushwackers). It takes some trimming of the flare, but it can be done very clean.

They look great. I have the TRD as well and plan on doing the same. Are you still running the stock BFG's on the 16". I have a set of 17' Baja Claws and are installing them on anew set of wheels after I decide on the correct lift.

Nah, I upgraded to the 10 ply 285-75-16s for daily driving.

Bricktop,
I was wondering how the flares fit against the body? I have heard that they do not fit tight and allow debris to get behind and possible cause rusting and other paint/body damage. Is this what you found? I looked at website and it appears they come with something that looks like trim molding.

Thanks,

I think you always run the risk of getting dust and debris in behind things like this, but I couldn't be happier with the fit and finish. They fit nice and tight. I'll try to get some better pics in the next few days.
