Bushwacker fender flares for GM/Chevy?

Hello SMBforum

I have been looking for Bushwacker (or other) fender flares for my Chevy Van.
I can't seem to find any but loads for S10 and Tahoe etc but none for Vans (except Ford...)

I don't suppose anyone has a tip? Or part number... Or any other suggestions?

Thanx

Thanx SMBDAD but no real fender flare there just silly small chrome things...
I am looking for real off road style fender flares and was thinking that a Silverado or S10 would be sort of compatible...

Or a universal style flare, but not too sure...

It is to protect from projections when I have my new over-sized tires and rims...

Saabman,

I am in the same position with my Chevy. I just found this product. Seems very reasonably priced. I caveat that I don't have yet, so I don't know about the universal fit. I also don't know if this site ships to Switzerland, but maybe you can find this product carried by someone over there.

Hope this helps.

Best-
Steve

Saabman,

Check with Juris (offroad accessories) he has the universal fender available by the meter in 5 and 7 cm wide, if I recall correctly.
I got it for the car I am rebuilding now.

Hey Andrew I will ask him when I go to collect my wheels in January... Can't wait

Do you think you could post a photo of what they look like?

Saabman ,
This is a very viable option having used this product on four previous vans and three custom built trucks all 4X4 .This was before Bushwacker was making the their flares for the Ford Vans
I first saw this type of option on a Edison Truck that was custom built for back country maintenance by NAPCO in the mid seventies . Buy a little more than you need , measure carefully and attach with all Stainless Steel Fasteners and you should be very pleased with your outcome . In some ways I feel they are better than the Bushwackers .

I found the same flares with some more options (steel reinforced, including a 50' roll) on this site.

I ordered the set of 4 for $80.

They ship internationally, too.

These look like a deal. I'm about to order them for a 1995 E250. Hard to see details on the site. Did they work out?

Thanks

I still need to install them, but they measure up perfectly. I will post photos when I get done. They shipped very promptly to me, I have just had a few things get in the way of getting this done.
