Default Bushwacker Flares!! Finally Have them!!

Well i finally got an awesome price on some Bushwacker Flares

It took about 2-3weeks from ordering to get them but they are here and at a very good price!!! now before anyone asks why they took so long it was due to the whole Price thing.

As most of you know the flares can cost upwards of $700 CDN, i paid after it was all said and done $410! YES $410
I found a post from MADDOG saying his best price he has found was on Amazon, checked it out and yes $350 flares free shipping in the USA, I also heard of people going down to Blaine Washington to pick parts up to get free shipping and avoid lots of border fees

So i ordered the flares it took a week to get them in and then i needed to wait to get a day of work that i could drive down to get them, happened to be today! took about 2.5 hours from the moment i left till i got home! spent an hour in a border lineup getting down there The parcel company charged me $17 for holding them and when i shipped them i had to pay washington state tax of $30 an then the conversion cost me another $10 on my credit card.....the company i got them shipped to was organized and it took me only 10 mins for them to find my package and get me out the door Pacific Mail and Parcel, would recommend them to anyone!

Next i got a tank of gas....holy $hit is it cheaper down there $90 bucks for a full tank a gas usually its $130-140 up in canada!! Now i was on my way home expecting to pay the final bit of what this whole adventure was going to cost me.....duty and Provincial tax...well i paid neither!! got across the border in about 5 min and had no problems, didn't pay duty or anything it was awesome!!

This probably all saved me hundreds in shipping and brokerage fees!! and only took a little longer to get the flares and 2.5 hours to pick them up

Now its time to get them ready and hopefully installed today!!

Picks will be up ASAP so no harrassment!!

"No harassment", you've got to be kidding me. Not on this site.

That was definitely a great idea! I hve heard about some other places like that and I never really tried them. It is good to know that they are actually decent. Cant wait to see the flares installed!

Hey with all the money you saved on shipping and fees you should put it towards painting them. Honestly they look 100% better once they are painted. You have a black truck so it wont be too bad not painted but trust me it is a good idea. I installed mine and took them off to paint and I was happy I did

A great purchase, and I've been wondering how to do get stuff up from the states myself, it's a 3 hr drive to the border for me though, not as simple as yours. But, like the rest...

Haha Well you guys will be waiting a little longer until pics can get up....i ran out of daylight trying to clean off the goo from the hemi badges.....PITA i hate badge crap....got the rears on but didn't have enough light to take a picture and i will have to get the fronts on at work tomorow and then i will get you all pics!!

Scat as for painting them i have gone both ways about it....everyone i ask says to keep them as is which i actually really like, plus it should not be hassle to take them off if i do want to paint them, plus i know a guy who can do it for $150 which is nice...but money is a little tight right now too!!
