Default Bolt on fender flares


Now I'm not sure where to start looking, but maybe someone over seas can put an input on this.

It' not the first time I've seen this, but it' the first time I've seen it on a few different blazers. Has anyone else come across these bolt on fender flares? I like how mean they look.

I want some of those, AND the parts to convert to the 6 lug driveline like they have over sea! I noticed a while back that the Blazer's (many with Opel badges since I believe they took over the production of them in 2005 and continued to make them up to 2010) in Indonesia have full size GM 6 lugs, and I'd LOVE to get ahold of the parts needed to convert my 04 to 6 lug.

Here's the link to the video that I took the snap shots from. I'm extremely jealous of their flares.

maybe I'll plan a trip and brig some back Lol...

I wondered what the jungle flares would look like... where they hard to install. I heard they don't come with any mounting hardware.

Don,
Oh my yes,,,a pain in the *** like I never expected, they are fiberglass, hand molded in Indonesia. And three of them were okay the fourth one was not right it wasn't wide enough I end up having to use a heat gun to get them to spread I did the job by myself and it really required to people trust me dude if I'd known what it was going to be like it if I had known what they were going to be like I never would have spent the money I never would have ordered them. That one the front one on the right hand side on the was bad cuz already started cracking I'm going to end up having to pull it off and Patch it and you are right they came with no mounting hardware the instructions that were provided were minimal and really not helpful at all I mean the price was great you know 250 but like I said had I known

That sucks. It a 350 canadian. And I have debated on getting them until reading that... I thought maybe even without mounting hardware I would do it. But being that disappointed with it, I'm just as dispointed and I didn't get them!. I think I'm going to retro fit a set of zr2s, I think it'll be easier.

Great thread. I've watched similar videos on YouTube before.

Those guys seem to be pretty crafty (handy with a welder, if you know what I mean)...could they have retrofitted some other vehicles flares onto their own rigs?

After a quick Google search, I did run across these from Bushwacker for 1st gens;

A little pricey to experiment with, but I'll let you guys decide on that.
