    Don't SRs have the same flares as my painted Sport flares?

    That's what I meant. And I want the pocket style fenders that have the exposed bolts

    Have you received the flares and mounted them up yet? I have had them saved on my eBay watchlist for some time now and am getting ready to pull the trigger on them. Curious to see what you think of them!

    If I don't hear anything by Wednesday, I'll order them. They should look good on my truck after the wrap is done (excluding the 3/4" gaps between parts of the flare and the body lol...)

    Just so you know, if these are anything like the Bushwacker pocket flares, the bolts are just for show. They are only held on by a few of the factory screws on the bottom edge. So if you cut out the bottom for clearance, there is nothing holding these onto the truck. You will then have to try and match up the bolt holes in the flare to the square holes in your fender or drill new ones and get longer bolts. Probably will also need some kind of spacer. Most of the holes in the Bushwacker version did not line up with the square holes for the factory fender flare clips.
