    hi everyone, I'm making a post because I haven't seen much conversation about this topic, but I am hoping I'm not the only person wondering about this. I have a 2016 tacoma that came stock without fender flares, so I was wondering what the steps id have to take to get them put on. I've seen some people say id have to take it to a body shop and get places for the clips cut out, but I'm not really wanting to do that. is there a way to get them on the truck without cutting holes? would it be better to go with a different option of flares like bushwhackers or another brand, or would I run into the same clip issue?

    I'm sure there is automotive adhesive like is used to stick badging on. I believe they use some sort of 3M barrier as well to stop rattling. Not sure if that's double sided adhesive or not.
