Bushwhacker Samurai flares, they have the gas door cutout and all. Will prolly be a close fit to our soobs. Or you could use that garden edging...:rolleyes: :lol:

Or you could go the cheap, redneck route and use garden edging like me.

Personally, I think it's kind of sweet having loads of rubber hanging out the side...I mean, aside from the obvious law-breakage, it's kind of cool. Your mud-flingability factor goes waaaay up.


Im not to interested in getting a ticket, will have to check out that garden edgeing

that's probably what i'll be using on lil' roo when i move back to washington... cheap garden edging... down here they don't really care... and same with the yota. but i'm going to have to figure a way to remove it while on the trail. some sort of quick release.

^^^I picked it up at a custom truck parts shop, it was four individual strips and I just put it on and cut to where I wanted it to end on the bottems. The wire is very tough, I broke my favorite dykes on it. Ended up using a cut off wheel:headbang:

4in DANG! sound like garden edge is the way for you. and yes they would look good on a rx! i had to use a dremel to modify the edge around the door and around the lower trim but over all they work great
