MPS: Pocket Style Fender Flares**


Pocket Style Fender Flares

Hey X Community,

I recently finished making some pocket style fender flares that many members have been wondering about.

Fender Flares are an extension piece to your Xterra’s fender that provide additional coverage for your wheels and tires that stick out past the fender.


Features and Benefits

1. Fender Flares keep your Xterra in compliance with many states Vehicle Equipment Laws. They greatly lower the chances of getting pulled over and even fined for having tires that stick out past your fender.

2. Adds an additional 2 and a quarter inches of wheel coverage. They can be also be sanded down for less coverage.

3. Deflects dust and debris away from body paint. Preserving your paint and even resale value.

4. Uniquely style your vehicle like no one else. These flares come shipped ready to paint. They can easily be matched to your Xterra’s body paint or any other color you desire. They can be line-x, Rhino Line, or Kevlar Coated.

5. Easy to install. For most users these flares will require minimalistic drilling along with minor trimming. Preexisting factory holes can even be used as mounting points to fasten the flares.

6. For oversized wheels and tires, trimming out the entire wheel well portion of the flares and bolting the flares to the fender allows for coverage on extremely wide set ups.

Individual sets $650 + Shipping
Group Orders 7-10 sets $550 + Shipping


1. The cheapest way I have found so far to ship these is through a freightliner and pick them up at a freight station. To give you an idea of shipping cost the last one I shipped was about $70 from California to Utah through Greyhound Freight.

2. These are handcrafted and Made In America of the best quality. There's always the option to make cheap stuff in overseas, but I refuse to do that for several reasons

3. I’m sorry if these are out of your price range but I can do group orders of 7-10 or more and sell them at $550 + shipping.

What’s included

1. A set of fender flares that will cover both the front and rear wheel wells.

2. Rubber Trim for the edges of the flares.

3. Mounting Screws and 3M VHB Tape

**note they are unpainted and do not come with the bolts at the base price**


Extras

1. Front bumper piece $50 Extra. (If you have a stock bumper you will want this piece. You won't need this piece if you have an aftermarket bumper)



2. Stainless Steel Short Bolts & Nuts (For bolt-on look) $40 Extra

3. Stainless Steel Long Bolts & Nuts (For actual bolt-on mounting) $50 Extra

4. Painted/Bed-lined $100 Extra

Installation and mounting

1. Remove mud flaps

2. Hold up the flares in place to the corresponding fender so they fit correctly. (Clamps work great to temporarily hold in place while mounting)

3. Using the screws provided, screw the flares to the under lip of the wheel well. (To secure the flares firmly use three screws for each part) Or if you have a wider suspension/wheel set up and you already trimmed out the underlip of the wheel well, you will have to bolt the flares to the sides of the xterra.



4. The rear door section can be mounted on by using industrial strength 3M VHB Tape (included). There is a flange on the back side of these flares that allows for the VHB tape to firmly mount the flares to the door.
(I don't recommend bolting this section to your xterra as putting holes in your doors will lead to your interior possibly being exposed to the environment)



5. **Trim flares where rubbing occurs or will occur when wheels are turned and suspension is bottomed out. Also if you do decide to mount the flares by using the bolting method be careful while drilling. You don't want to go to fast and puncture any of your Xterra's components. **This part is very important because if not trimmed the wheels can damage the flares.**



Ordering:

For the time being simply send me a PM on here or email me at (I prefer email) watki127@mail.chapman.edu and we can work out the details and payments via paypal.

When you send me an email include:
- If you need the front bumper piece
- If you would like the Short Bolts (for bolt on look) or long bolts (for actual bolt on mounting) or no hardware (if you'd like to get them yourself)
- If you want them painted
- Your address
- What shipping method you would prefer.

Shipping Methods

Option One: Freight Liner

- A freight liner usually cost about $70-$100 and takes 5-10 days. The flares are dropped off at your closest bus station and you pick them up.

Option Two: UPS
- UPS can cost around $100 to $300 depending on your location and how fast you want them shipped. You will also have a tracking number this way.

Either way will work it just depends on how fast you want them shipped.

FAQ's

1. Won't adding the fender flares lower the room I have for wheel clearance and cause more rubbing?

Not necessarily because the areas that get rubbing you trim out.

2. Are there returns?

No, buy at your own risk, you can always resell them. If you think there is something wrong or missing with the flares I will be happy to help and make things right.

3. What are they made out of?

Fiberglass

4. What if I they get damaged?

Fiberglass is easy to repair, paint, and work with.

5. How do they fit?

Most sets will fit without having to do any adjustments but not every Xterra is exactly the same nor will everyone have the same tire and suspension set up. In some cases you may need to sand down or do some minor modifications depending on your set up. In most cases they will fit but don't be be surprised if you have to do some minor tweaking. Most modifications can be done with the most basic tools such as sand paper and a Dremel in a small amount of time.

6. Will these fit with Rock Sliders?

Not all rock sliders are the same so I cannot answer that for all of them. The only area where rockslides could cause hindering with mounting and fitment is below the rear door section. To give you an idea if the flares will fit with the sliders, the flares hang down below the rear door section about 4 inches and are 4.5 inches wide. If it is a tight fit you can always sand them down.

I will be adding more pictures soon

For now this is the best pic I got of the gas cap side.

The picture is before I combined the rockler panels and the rear door section into one piece. So If you purchase a set the rocker panel and rear door section are now one piece. .


If you don't like the cut out in the flares where the gas cap is, there will be an option for a cover over the gas gap in the near future.

It will be probably be held in place by magnets and be tied on by a string. So when you fill up for gas and lift the cut out piece off the magnets it will be held on by the string. Kinda like how a gas cap dangles when you fill up for gas.

Here's what the cut out piece would look like just without the hinge.

No problem they provide 2 inches of additional coverage in most areas, some areas have 2 and a quarter inches of coverage.

Lol... $600 shipped I could maybe swing but 800 is rough. It's too bad cus these are one of the best looking exterior mods IMHO, especially for green.

When are we gonna get a full 360 degree walk around/pics with the completed flares installed on an X? All the pictures I've ever seen have been of partially completed or partially installed flares
