    Maybe? It's kind of growing on me. I might widen the rear but keep the raked stance or just try to square it off. I've got an MK1 duckbill for the front coming and after that I might take a break on it for a while and move on to my bike or other car projects.

    Did you cut the fender to allow for the width? Or does the flare just bolt on?

    On eBay. It’s a golf MK1 chin splitter.

    Cool
    Definitely need the rear flares now! Once you do those, then you gotta do the side skirt diffuser things!

    There’s pics on the net of that bright yellow Hilux that started being used in the eBay ad for fender flares. The side skirts and behind the rear tire angled bit really tied in everything to me - but he was missing the chin spoiler! Was definitely nice to not see the different heights between the cab and bed, which I always thought was an odd aesthetic decision from Toyota on our trucks
