I am interested in the Xenon fender flares but they say they only fit 95-97 tacoma. Did the Tacoma change after 97? I have a 2000 Tacoma and I am wondering how hard it would be to fit these. They are the biggest flares i see available without screwing up my truck with the cut-out bushwackers. If only the mounting holes are a little different I would definately buy them ,and drill new holes. Does anyone know why these aren't recommended for 98-04 Tacomas? I have seen another 2001 Tacoma on another site with the Xenon Flares installed but the guy wouldn't answer me about what was involved in installing them. Thanks for any help. If anyone knows any other big flares that are compatible, that would also be great, especially if they are cheaper!

Thats great news. Did you install them yourself, and did the holes line up and everything? There must be some reason that they are not recommended for the newer years. Anybody have any idea why?

It fit the 99 with no problems.The flairs have indentions as to where you drill the holes in the flairs themselves.It went on without a hitch.My 02 dbl cab shorty looks like it has the same opening as the standard 6 ft bed.I may order a set and just see what the difference is.The 99 and the 02 look like they have the same wheel well openings.Oh well thats kinda down on my to do list right now.

Very cool! If you don't mind me askin, how much did you pay for them, and where did you buy them from? They certainly aren't cheap are they! Thanks alot for the info. It seems so weird that they would cut out such a big part of their own sales by limiting how many years they fit. Anybody have any idea why?
