like 4x4 flares? what about stx flares? that would look cool, why cant you go fiberglass like the baja style with a smaller buldge? a little fiberglass work to the lower portions where they meet the door and bumper to blend it in, i bet it might look kinda cool, see if one of the guys can photo shop it?

I think it'll look hella horrible with the bumper sucked flush with the body and the flares poking out, but hey, if that floats your boat, sweet.

not quite, but close enough.

i agree with fastncrazy1 go with a small baja fender flair it would make the truck wider soo u can tuck more and it would also have the illusion of being lower to

If you get tires that will tuck, which you'll need to if you go a full 5" drop, the flares will look ghey, cause they'll stick out way past the tires. With a 3/4 drop, you can pull them off and make it look good, but the logistics of a 5" drop make the flares a bad idea. No maybe if you stretched the fender a bit, that could be cool, 'cause you could run a wider tire and still keep it out at the edge of the wheel.
