    So I have searched around on here, over the last year. Looking at how others have corrected the holes in the fenders after removing their stock flares. o_O

    I was unable to find an exact part number for a clip or insert that just worked without silicone or any other things. :confused:

    Since there are 2 different size holes, it has thwarted me with buying anything online, none of them have worked.:bananadead:

    Today I found the answer! They fit both of the holes, perfectly. No slop or play in them. They dont move around at all.:bananadance:

    Good on ya. Where did you find them?

    Was looking for the right item just yesterday. I’m really bummed about these fender flares. There stupid expensive to replace. I’m going to fill the holes and be done with it.

    I got them at a store called Bumper to Bumper. Not sure if they are only in Canada or wut.

    You can get them on Amazon

    Those are way easier to install than mine but i like the way mine look way more! But with those you dont have to remove the inner fender liners. Those clips are not easy to get off....

    Very nice!

    I like the custom look of yours Zac. Mine are very blah, but look better than the holes just open, and yes they take about 2 seconds to install.

    Bringing this back from the dead. Just removed mine. Where did you get those? I looked at autozone for some basic push in things, they were $3+ for 2... I need 38 hahaha
