Some textured Z71 flares shouldn't be too expensive or difficult to get ahold of.

Looks good to me man! Glad you went ahead and did it.

Z71 flares are probably the easiest/best bet. They cover 2.5". There are the bushwhacker's too, but they are literally straight knock-offs of the Z71's and don't offer any more coverage.

Yea that looks goo honestly. Flares would make it flow a little better but I doubt anyone would hassle you over that. I think mine stick out a hair further even with Z71 flares

I think you'll be okay. Just play stupid about the law if you get pulled over and tell him you will buy flares ASAP, he should let you off with a warning.

Just drive normal and don't draw attention to yourself. If you are speeding around blowing stop signs they will certainly get you for every possible offense.

Most likely not gonna pass when you go for your next state inspection. Just ask @JVal. He had to add some landscape edging, i think thats what he used anyway, to his z71 flares so his would pass....and his tires just barely stuck out past the flares compared to what yours do now.

Dang, must be a good friend.

Most places that do inspections can lose their license for falsifying a certification.
Perhaps the visual inspection for safety is different than the inspections I'm thinking of.

Wow that's cheap.. Thanks
Anytime, just looking out for you guys!

The salvage yard near me tried to charge me 200 for a set of 4 and I got bit by fire ants and rained on when I was pulling them.
Shit, the most I've even paid was $20 per flare at the junkyard and that was with me pulling them
