You think it's ugly with flares? You should see it without.

Yea - they just all look like they were in an accident and the fender flares got ripped off

I suppose you could use body filler and smooth out the body lines and paint it - but is a lot of work for an unknown outcome

yea I think the problem is the missing "body" under the flares. Unlike the 80 series/lx450 when you pop off the flares and are left with some holes to weld up but otherwise a smooth body, the missing chunks of body line I don't see looking good without the flares..

The front fenders wouldn't concern me, since I'm on glass fenders from a Tocoma on mine, and the rear could potentially look decent if you were trimming them out to stuff a 38-40" tire, but the door trim just has to stay in place.. that example above just looks ungodly lol

Does anyone know of larger fender flares for these trucks? I don't want to have to replace the entire front quarter panel with a crazy widebody shape.

if you want something wider than the 03-05 fenders, the front fenders and flares on the 06+ are wider. OR you can just go ahead and be a cool kid by purchasing fiberglass

Just another option for those wanting to mess with the idea of fender modification (though this does get rid of your fender liner).

Fitting 35s on a Toyota 4runner // 4th gen 4runner - YouTube

trim about 2-3" inches off the metal fender and plastic fender flare, add some paint underneath, maybe install a snorkel to keep your intake happy, and voila.

Currently doing this and installing a safari snorkel as we speak in order to clear 35's with as little fuss as possible.
