    I've searched and can't seem to find a definitive answer. I know the fronts will fit, but will rear flares from a long bed fit a short bed, and vice-versa? Thanks in advance. :)

    I think all of the fender openings are the same.

    Looking at a short bed in the parking lot a few minutes ago and it appears to be exactly the same as far as the flares go. The short bed is just missing that bit of the bed in front of the fender flares.

    too much to list
    Search other threads. I recall someone taking Bushwackers and using a hair dryer to mod them to fit a short bed. They only need to be re-curved or something.​

    I have a set of short bed stock flares. No where close at all. Maybe bushwhacker but stock WILL NOT work!

    The REAR flares from Bushwacker are different.
