Default 4runner fender flares

Here is some noodling on feder flares for my truck. I need a few inches of additional coverage to be legal in Utah, California, Oregon, and Washington (full tire coverage). I also need mud flaps. Not exactly sure how low I need the mud flaps though. Looks like at least the center of the axle and maybe to the bottom of the rim depending on the state (New Jersey, for instance, requires to the bottom of the rim).

Options
  • Bushwacker bolt-on flares - Wouldn't take that much work to put them on. Looks like I can get them next business day via 4 Wheel Parts.
    • Front - 1.25" coverage
    • Rear - 1.75" coverage
  • Hannermann Fender Flares - Another 1st gen 4runner guy in the club has these. They look SHARP. There are a couple different options for front and rear. Not exactly sure which I'd go with but I think that I don't want the ones that go above the hood.
  • Toyota Fiberglass - These look really nice. These were the ones I really had my eyes on a year or two ago.
  • Glassworks Flares - This is what the Red Chili has. 4" of coverage and 3" of rise.

I'll also need to get some mud flaps.

Anyway starting to think more seriously about this now...

If you have Colorado tags and you're legal here you're legal in any state.
at least that's what I've been told.

That's what I thought, too, but my buddy who is with the Arizona Highway Patrol told me that they can ticket out of state plated trucks if they don't meet Arizona's laws.

I'll plead ignorance for now though

I really like those 6.5" x 4" flares from glassworks for my taco. I might need a set of those.

Yeah. I should. I'll need to wait till I get the SAS done. Then I'll need the fenders before I do the exo-cage.
