    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I've got them and yes you will need to cut 1.5" of sheet metal from your fenders to fut them. I've got pictures in my build.

    NO they are cut away fender flares they are wider then the opening of your fender. You nee to cut to install them. you will also need to drill holes in the side of the fender for the bolts

    This is the instructions http://www.bushwacker.com/Instructions/31919_r8.pdf

    How did you get them on right without cutting they are 2" wider in the rear then the fender. Unless you squished them in I don't see how you can get them on "right" without cutting.

    I guess some things just work out! ;) lol I actually got the idea to test it out first without cutting from a buddy that did the same to his Dodge... and since it worked, I went with it! I guess it's not "right" because I didn't do what the instructions told me... but it worked and it looks great IMO!

    Nope... they sat flush with everything and just drilled and bolted them on.

    Looks like they've gone up in price... I dono.

    Thanks, man! I've got 3" body and 6" suspension rolling 35x12.50R15s! I doubt that it's possible to do without drilling... not for our trucks anyway.
