    Sorry if this has been posted, I couldn't find anything. I just ordered some bushwacker flares and will be installing them soon. thing is, I have taken my fender flares off before, and the cheap little plastic tabs that hold the clips that attach to the truck, break off. It's a pretty stupid design. Anyway, I figured out how to get behind the rear flares and pop out the clips, but I can't with the front. Does anyone know how I can remove the front flares from the backside, or another way so I don't have to pull the flares off and risk breaking the mounting piece? Maybe by taking off the splashguard? Thanks.

    remove the 3 or 4 screws in the bottom edge of them and push the inner fender back and you should be able to
