    Hey guys,

    I searched for an answer for this but I could not find anything. I own a 2010 DC trd sport and there is a gap between the passenger side front fender flair and the piece of the front clp that wraps around under it. The drivers side is snug together but the passenger side is about an 1/8 inch off. It comes together as the gap runs forward. Is the anyway to snug that up?

    Thanks,

    Cleanerguy

    Can you post a pic? 1/8" is within the factory spec...

    I tried that today. I looked everywhere but could not figure it out. I think there must be a way to adjust the front clip to snug it up. The fender flair looks straight. I can always have the dealer look at it on my first oil change. I need to have them check some wierd driveline vibration from 0 to 15 mph anyway. I just hate when I find something that I can not fix myself.

    I hear ya. Being its a new truck, let the dealer fix it. If they say "Its normal" or whatever BS, then we can go from there. :)
