    yea i like em. only thing i ended up doing and havent installed yet is the bolt holes do line up so that you just actually bolt them on instead of those clips but it only wants you to use a few for each one. I bought longer ones enough to do every single one and it wont be going anywere

    that's dope. I'm 100% sure i'll be bolting on a set of flares to the sheet metal. It's definitely not an issue cutting into my truck lol

    I never had too many issues until the bumper crushed the supporting washed on the frame horn and flexed up hitting my flares lol

    :laughing: that will do it. I was tearing my passenger side of with the wheel flexed with the tire turned it would rub just a bit and kept braking those clips. these have been on solid for a few months now

    I have the same ones. Cut the mudflap bump off and got longer bolts and bolted every hole. One hole on each front doesn’t line up but all the rest do:thumbsup:

    Did you use a bolt with a nut on every hole? My current ones are bolted on with a bolt and nut, but it makes it a pain to remove them, so I bought some 1/4'' sheet metal screws Im hoping to use so I dont have the nut on there.

    Nice I though the front hole looked a bit off. Right now it’s still held on with the factory like 2 bolts per flair and it’s fine but not flush. When it warms up I’m gonna pull em off clean the truck really well and install with the new hardware

    Yea I used a nut and bolt on every hole. I’m hard on flares lol. 1/4” drive impact driver makes quick work of it.
    i think it’s the second hole from the bottom by the door edge that doesn’t line up. Also don’t crank the bolts down, tighten them “just enough” if you know what I mean. There’s no support on the back of the flare so if you crank them down it makes the flare warped and wavey
