    i've accepted the fact the sheetmetal on my terra is no longer pretty. i just put on a set of 39.5" iroks and, although they don'ty rub, it's time to make a little clearence so they look better in the wheel wells. what has everyone used on here for cutout flares for a scout II? i need something soft/flexible as it rubs a tree or 2 sometimes. thanks for the advice! :punk:

    There was a red Scout in TTC many moons ago that was rocking 80's Blazer cut out flares. Thats all I've got.

    It was either a SII or a Traveler. I can't remember now. It was like '98-'99 or something like that.

    thanks for the info, i'd like to get ones that KINDA keep the same shape as a scout II wheel well, i have enough people calling it a bronco or blazer, the last thing i need is the wheelwells to be shaped like one! :hammer::cornfused::tt2:

    very hard to find decent looking flares for a scout i hate the ones bush wacker sells they look kinda whimpy
    try a late 90's f150 for cut out flares theyd probley keep the scouts "roundness" alot better rather then blazer flares
    just my 2 cents for jon and the giant peach lol

    The Bushwacker cutout flares that people are mentioning are not soft and flexible. They're fairly hard plastic. Tree's will definitely destroy them. The only flexible flares that I know of that'll kinda work on a Scout are urethane Bronco flares (Wildhorses 4x4) or universal rubber flares from JC Whitney.

    Has anyone tried the Pacer universal rubber flares? I have some terrible rust issues in the rear quarters. Havent decided which avenue to go with a ghetto bondo fill or just cut out the area and reformat the look of the wheel well. Over this winter will pickup some new quarters but need to keep my ride on the road as I go. So just looking at cutting and using no lip fenders to dress it up.
