Front Splash Guards

After replacing the factory running boards with a set of tube steps, I needed to install some front splash guards to protect the body panels from debris.  Since my 4Runner has the factory extended flares on it designed to work with the running boards, the OEM Toyota front splash guards would not work, and I definitely didn't want to remove the flares.  I finally found a set of Highland Contura splash guards (P/N 11051) at Advance Auto. 

For this modification you'll need:

Highland Contura Splash Guards P/N 11051
220 Grit Sand Paper
Dremel Tool

These splash guards are nearly an exact fit, however some very minor dremel work is needed on the lower edge where it meets the body in order for these to fit like they came from the factory.  I simply held them in place by hand, and used a pencil to trace the area to trim.  The procedure took all of 15 minutes.  Use the dremel tool's sanding wheel to remove material to the line you traced.  Then use 220 grit sand paper to smooth it out.  Finally, screw the flares to the vehicle.  I used factory splash guard bolts, but any fender type bolt with large washer will work.
