    A couple of guys have bought it specifically for their flares, but I haven't heard back from them as far as the results.

    You can see the gap at the bottom of the trim in this picture. As long as you're attaching the trim to a cut flare you should be just fine.

    Okay. Thanks for getting back to me so soon. I hope someone responds about using it on their cut flares. I don't mind being the guinea pig, but would prefer not to be lol

    Well, it's not like you're being the guinea pig on a $1000 bumper or suspension system. We're talking about $40. :D

    If all else fails, just pull your flares and put the trim on the fenders. I'll throw an extra decal in the box if you want to go ahead and give it a shot.

    Well, it's been confirmed, this width of edge trim is too narrow for trimmed fender flares.

    I can get trim that will fit the flares, but I need to know that there are enough orders out there to justify it. Remember that I buy 500ft at a time to be able to bring you the prices I'm offering. If someone wants to discuss this further please send me a PM.

    Just purchased. Do you recommend a 'cut-small-slices-and-fold' method for the sheet metal edge in the fenders for retention or can it grip a cleanly cut edge?

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Thanks for the order Rob. There's no need to fold the edge of the fender. The trim is sized to fit the clean cut edge.

    I'm out of town for the day job so there will be a bit of delay getting your trim to you. I will do my best to get it sent out Thursday.

    Kryan, the edge trim fits trimmed sheet metal, but not the plastic flares. The trim would work perfectly for your situation.

    Right on. How does the pressure/friction fitting work? Do you clamp down after sliding the trim over the sheet metal?

    It's a push on and forget it install.

    Yes
    One item to pay attention to when installing the trim is that one side will lay very flat against the body and the other side tweaks out at an angle. The side that lays flatter against the body looks much better on the outside edge of the fender. Push a couple inches on first to see which side is which before you install a long piece.

    Still have this OP? Also, just to confirm this does NOT fit the flare, just the sheet metal? 20' covers all 4 corner?

    How do I order?

    Correct, the trim only fits the sheet metal. You can order at trailtoys.net.

    20ft will cover four corners
