Pocket Style Fender Flares

I'm looking for a set of "pocket-style" flares for my '96 Full size.
Does anyone know who might stock them? (or if they're even available?)

If you are wanting information on where you can go and get them from a 4x4 supply place rather than online you don't even have any information on your location that others here can let you know about.

And like he says, try searching first so you at least have some idea what you are looking for.

I have the cut out flares on my current 90' Bronco and my old 88' Bronco. Before I sold my old Bronco, I removed all the expensive mods including the 14" wide wheels and 15.5" wide tires. I replaced them with 12 x 35 tires on 10" wide wheels. I have to tell you that it looked kind of funny with those big ole flares and 35's. It made the tires look small. It also looked narrow because the flares stick out so far. You might want to consider this before. The other problem is their strength. Mine are some what protected by my wide tires (my tires are atleast 5" wider than the flares) and I still cracked them hitting stuff. Not saying I don't like them. They look great. But I wish they were a little stronger.

yo,
Also in my site;
Flare Info & pics in an 81; "...I wanted to install fender flares in my truck but they are not available in my country (Argentina).....so I got a set of cheap Warn flares in bad shape and sent them to make a copy.....Today I got the first set and installed them....the cost for each set it will be about $100.- bucks!!..."

Flare, Modification; "...Heres what jeep flares look like, i went to the junkyard and they let me have 8 for 30$ and i only used 2 on the back, just marked it for the flare contour, got out the old air nibbler and i like the way it turned out....but my main reason was to cut off the rusted thru parts of the quarter..." pic is gone

Flare, Modification; "...i used flares off of a 98 ford explorer sport 2 door 4 door wont work. the fender radius is almost the same. only mods i had to do was where the "V" shape is towards bottom of truck i had to slightly mod the flares by cutting them with a die grinder. the screw holes along the fender lip also matched up nicely. it tooka couple of days of trial fitting but they look nice. and along the top i instaled small bolts so they look the pocket flares made by bushwacker. this was necessary to hold them tightly to the body. it cost me a total of 50.00 to put these on. flares where 30.00 at pull a part auto wrecking..."

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I have in fact, exhausted an "online" search for this style, to no avail. That's why I thought I'd ask you guys.

Im not so sure they even make them for our trucks anymore. I had to replace a flare on my 96 back in spring, and i couldnt find any in the pocket style.

I thought "pocket" refured to the little countersunk mount bolts on my cut-out flares. If this is not true, please explain what they are. (or pics)

Yes thats correct. They used to be available as regular or cut-out flares, but these days it seems the pocket style arent available at all for our trucks.

I just looked on the Bushwacker site and they still list cut-out flare for my truck (90'). It says with "screw pockets".

Thats true. But if you look for a '96 like sacharm's truck is, youll see it doesnt say Pocket Style on any type of flare.

Curious, I just got a quote from Woody's 4x4 here locally and mine is a 96?
Maybe they knew the ones for earlier model years would fit?
I will have to ask them about this.

I love the pocket style, I just wish they didn't stick out 4" from the fender,
Looks funny to me unless I run at least 14" wide tires. I run 12.5" now and they barely extend beyond the fender well.
The reason I didn't buy them then is I was wanting to see if there was a pocket option out there that didn't stick out so far.

I think theyre different up front, because of the different bumper & shape of the corners. I want to say that the older style flares come down lower than the newer ones, but its been a long time since ive seen a 87-91 with flares. Bushwacker must specify a different part # for the two styles (91/92) for a reason.
