Jaos supposedly makes some specifically for the 460 but good luck finding some. If i had to place some bets, I would say look at Russia since they have the 460 as well.

I have seen the Prado kits on ebay and aliexpress etc etc but what concerns me is the end of the flares since the bumpers have a different shape.

An old member fitted on these flares but they don't look like they were made for the GX460 or the Prado judging by the shape of the rear opening but it still looks pretty good.

I could be wrong, I would think the rear wheel fender for Toyota LC will fit GX no problem, but not sure about front. The contour for the nose area are definitely different between GX and LC, whether front fender front leading edge would fit the GX is questionable. Again, I could be wrong.

It will fit on the GX though I think it will be a bit ugly if you put this one on the GX. The black one looks pretty nice

Anybody have an idea of where to get this fender flares? I think they are from JAOS but can't get the pics to load on their website and I've also inquired with 2 vendors and have yet to hear back.

Thanks, I've just sent the jaos dealers an email about the flares. It's not practical for me to deal with a Russian company. I noticed the words jaos na (jaos north America reference?) in the url so i wonder if its a jaos replica. Hopefully i get a response from one of the dealers.

Can you help me order those fender flares? haha

Only reason for the flares is to accommodate the wheels I ordered (17x8.5 -10) and I plan to run 265/70-17 tires on it. I wasn't going to "build" this car but seeing what others have done, I am tempted now. I've been looking at bumpers, roof racks and skid plates. Main purpose for this car will be for camping, trails and mall crawling with the kids.

Default a bunch of em

There are a number of different flares out there when searching. I like the look of these below but also the clean look of the white Prado further down. There is also a fender liner on the black truck.

I've search for a bit. Who makes the ones on the black Prado? The flares on the white one looks proper, maybe because its molded onto the car?

The ones on the black Prado are the Elford 20mm ones. You can get them through Yahoo auctions Japan. And you are correct, the white is very clean cause it's factory spec.
