On the quest for a dually fender alternative

Hey folks, for those that may or may not know, I am in the process of swapping in a D70 dually rear end onto my early 90s dodge pickup. This project has been fun and I've managed to keep the total cost of it, including the purchase of the axle, six actual early 90s dodge dually rims, a complete seal and brake rebuild on the axle to $500 so far. I've been research dually fenders and unfortunately the original ones from the period of my truck are rather hard to find and from a little research, unlikely to fit properly as the flaring of the opening on the single rear wheel bed is slightly different than the dually bed.

So, at current, I'm looking for an inexpensive fender flare alternative. One possibility were Omix-Ada jeep flares, but their website doesn't have any prices on them, and they appear to only come in sets of 4. Also, the max they seem to be wide is 7", which may not be wide enough to properly cover the outer wheel.

This brings me to my request for help in locating other fender alternatives. I'd like to keep it rather simple like the original dodge fenders which weren't full hips like the 94 and later generations had. Also, I don't have a terribly large amount of cash to spend on them, which further complicates matters.

So, any suggestions?

Googling 'dually conversion' found several sources, as well as reports from people who have done or are doing it. Whether they fit your budget or not...

AFAIK, the 1st gen Dodge duallies used standard SRW fenders that had been Sawzalled and then had bolt-on flares installed. There should be any number of aftermarket (internet) sources for 1st gen OEM Dodge replacement flares.

I've found several, but none within my budget range. Most quotes have come in at $500 for two fiberglass fenders.
