    Default bushwacker pocket flares or OEM Flares

    I have a 2011 RW and wanted to know if anyone here has installed the pocket flares on the RW. I really like the ones at TRDSparks but I also like the look of the pocket flares and I believe they offer more protection, the downside is I guess I would have to remove the factory Mud flaps. I have leveled my truck with the Bilsteins and don't really plan on lifting it but I might go up a tire size with the BFGs wear down. Any suggestions? If I bought the bushwackers I might LineX them. THe OEMs are little more than the bushwachers but after painting I'm not sure which one is actually cheaper at this point just looking for some opinions or pictures on a RW
    THanks

    Thanks I found some and I don't think either would look very good without spacers

    You can get the painted to match OEM flares from Sparks for a little over $400. I am not sure what the Bushwackers cost, and how much it will cost to paint them. I have the OEM flares and am very happy with them. No holes to drill, and no double sided tape used to install them. And they fit perfectly.

    FL, do you have factory wheels and tires or did you add spacers, I have a RW with the standard BFGs, a little larger than the stock tundra 4x4 I believe and just wandered if they would look weird, most pictures I have found look like people have spacers thanks for the reply
