I swear I spend more time cleaning than I do riding. Everything that has ever been in the cab has been covered in mud. We need a good set of fender flares and we need them now. Engineers please get this going. As soon as anyone hears anything about any fender flares please post them to this thread. The problem is it would be nice if they looked somewhat OEM or at least professional. That is why Ive held off from building some. I'm hoping Kolpin or Honda can bring us some.

Thanks fins, I actually really like those. Good find. They might just work til a dedicated set comes out.

I was almost thinking of getting a plastic wheel well liner from a car in a junk yard for the rear tires?

Or something along those lines.

The mud seems to get all up in the rear doors and the seat assembly.

That would be good to see, might even be a cheaper alternative to some that don't even have a set as yet

I emailed kolpin last week asking if they were working on a set. the reply I got was that they don't currently have any but are working on a full line of accessories for the pioneer. I also gave some suggestions that I have along with those that I have read on the forums. those suggestions were to cover the gap in the back of the front wheel well and also to come under the rear door area to keep mud/water from being slung up under the rear door into the rear passenger foot area. hopefully we will see some soon.

Fender flares

I just installed Pacer Industries, flexy flares on the front fenders only. I had to heat with a small propane torch to conform to the curve on the Pioneer, but once cooled, they retain the shape. I screwed them in and then used black silicone from the inside and the outside and if you pull on the flare, the whole fender moves. Very secure. I also sprayed black rubber underneath to hide the screws. It adds 2.5 inches, which doesn't seem like much, but it gets the crap 2.5 inches away from the rig. I beveled the front and rewrote flare for cosmetics.

I made some for the front of my p4. The rear is a little more difficult because of the doors. I did make some improvements on the rear but it's only improved not fixed. I used abs and molded it with a torch. I then attached them with plastic rivets like holds your fenders together. Was also able to cover that huge gap that fills with mud behind the front tire.








On the rear the main improvement was the passengers feat don't get all muddy now. Her is a pic of what I am considering for the rear. It won't eliminate the mud but it should help a lot judging by what mud is currently on the side of mine.

Thanks guys I'm happy with them so far. I used 1/16" abs. The 1/8 might have been difficult to make the tight bends required in a couple spots. The 1/16 is plenty rigid enough. I actually made quite a few items out of the abs as I bought a full 4'x8' sheet. I'll start a new thread with some of the other items.
