They are very hard to find, you might want to try subtle solutions or possibly asking on SF.org but let me tell you know they are not the kind of flares you would think they are. They were made oem to protect the fenders from dings...they are a rubbery kind of substance and they do not increase fender clearance at all. Once of the other reasons why I sold it too.

The Group-n Tranny mount is louddd lol but my tranny has always been pretty whinney this just made it more pronounced but when autox'ing and sprited driving the tranny sits nicely in place to swaying or moving around or shifter movement. So i thought it was a nice upgrade.

Its been a while so my latest project tonight was adding in the gauge surround made by ortiz custom pods. The work on it is pretty nice. They smoothed out a lot of the lines. Just had to add some electrical tape to the gauges to make them stay in place but wiring was already there and went together like a breeze. This pod was a great choice for us 04-08 fxt's that cant use an SMY cluster. Also I installed a Kenwood DNX571HD headunit. My very first kenwood ever, so far im liking what im hearing. Going to do a little more fine tuning and adjusting the eq curve. But im happy with the results. My cockpit and getting to look close to how i want it. Thx for looking.

Meant to ask you, what mirrors are those? Mine are pissing me off flapping in the wind while driving and I think I'm going to replace them.

they are 06-08 fxt side mirrors. There is a thread on how they need to be wired and for the turn signal you need to tap a turn signal wire in the cabin to hook that up. Other than that they should bolt up fine. If yours are moving try tightening the three screws on the underside of the mirrors. Those are most times the cause of the movement.

Those screws tighten the whole thing or just the mirror? My actual mirrors are moving, not the whole body. I'll give that a try. Checked out the screws last night and Mason said his do the same thing.

interesting my actual mirrors moved a little from the wind. But the body moved a lot as well and tightening those 3 screws on the bottom fixed the body from moving. But i am not sure what causes the actual mirror to move. My new ones don't move at all. Think they are a better design too.
