Ebay fender pocket fender flares

Are there any members here using the Pocket style fender flares from Ebay?

I think it's time I put on fender flares because I am tired of everything splashing on to the side of my truck because my wheels stick out couple of inches.

How's the fitment? Also are they pretty tough?

The price is so cheap and I'm afraid it's gonna be a case of you get what you paid for. But if not then I will pick those up.

Dang, that's cheap. I just purchased BW flares for about twice the price. BW must be making a lot of money.

well they are local to me and it states that local pick up is available. So I'm planning on going there and see it first before making the purchase.

The price is less than half of BW. That's what worries me. I don't want it to be some cheap piece of plastic or anything like that.

At that price, the risk is worth it, I think. I would love to see those mounted. One thing I don't like about BW flares is the indentation for the gas cap. Ebay flares don't seem to have the indentation. I would be interested in finding out how that works out with Tundra.

The picture you see in the ebay listing might not be the actual picture for the Tundra. They might be using the same picture for all models. So the indentation might be there for the Tundra.


Edit: Those might actually be the actual pictures. Looking at their other items, looks like all the flares have different pictures for different models.

I can see the difference between the two.

Those ebay ones look to install just like the OEM flares, they come all the way down to the bumper.

The real bushwackers stop at the top of the plastic part above the bumper, which will allow you to install an aftermarket bumper. Not that it would be an issue, if you have no plans of ever installing an aftermarket bumper, but with these flares, you wouldn't be able to, without cutting on the flares, and ruining them, or just taking them off and selling them.

To be honest, I'd almost rather have those ebay ones than my bushwankers. When i removed the OEM flares, they left marks where they rubbed on the paint, which is now exposed More shit to fix FML...or else, more incentive to get an aftermarket badass bumper

Here's a pic of my wankers, notice where the front flare stops, compared to coastie:




And here are the OEM flares, which go all the way down to the bumper:
