500 dollars for bushwacker cut out flares. Cut the fenderwells and install the fenderflares. Rust is gone and cost half the amount.

Buy a fender, take it to a shop & have it painted and install it yourself.



The thing you have to remember with these older trucks is, if you can't do most of the work & maintainence yourself, you'll end up having so much money tied up in them that you'll never to able to re-coupe what you've spent.

IMO,.....if you can't work on them, then you're better off getting a new model, as in the long run you'll be money ahead.
