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

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.
