Wheel Arches

Are these wheel arches produced (i.e., can I buy a set and if so, where)? I have some wide wheels on my truck that require spacers. The stock wheel arches aren't nearly wide enough and all the aftermarket ones I see aren't nearly stock looking enough.

Do later defenders have wider arches?... these look wider than the early or NAS ones or maybe I'm getting old and need glasses

Are you wanting a stock/oem look, but just slightly wider? Or width without compromise?

Look here:

There are wider ones available and I think they are named fat boy flares. We had a couple of the LRUK trucks with them on at one point, but they bolt on..look pretty tough actually.

Thanks, but these aren't the same. Those things are huge.

Is the backspacing that dissimilar to boosts? I'm running the same with spacers up front and the amount of rubber outside of the fender flares is minimal. See my registry.

You can see how much they stick out now. Not the end of the world.
