    So I was cleaning the truck today when I noticed my rear drivers side fender flare is starting to pop a bit, bout an 1/8th maybe 3/16, The flares are unpainted. Anyways you can look down from the top and see the bright blue clip that holds the flare to the truck, so my problem is I dont wana go taking my wheel liners off untill I know what needs to be done to fix it! So has anyone else had this happen?

    my passenger side front one is like that. I haven't looked at it either as I assume the clips are broken... :( I suppose I should look into it some more. :laugh: Maybe I can just snap it back in place.

    I'm not sure what's involved either.

    Well, I think it happened when I hit a turkey... It hit the front passenger corner of the bumper before going under the tire. Later I noticed the fender popped out and fog light tabs broken off. :rolleyes:

    One of the reason I want a plate steel winch bumper. No more of this plastic crap on the front.
