Yours look great! I bought the Bushwacker C channel trim. Will put it on once it's warmer here. I'm really liking the look of yours with the spray you put on them. Do you treat them first? Mine have been exposed to dirt now but I'm definitely going to do that to mine in the spring. I'm very pleased with the flares also!

No I didn't treat them with an etcher or sanding, the truck-bed liner seems to be doing its job, I used two 16oz cans, time will tell. Quite frankly, it was cold and I was being lazy, LOL

IDEALLY, having them LINEX or RINO Lined would be ideal but I'm currently in NC and the local LINEX dealor wanted $350 to do all four Flairs... When I get back to TX, if I feel I need to re-do them, I know I can get them done for under $100 bucks... Things, fuel, etc are very, very expensive in Western NC

Wow, You guys all lucked out for picking it up from grille4you, super deal for sure. But grille4you doesn''t know when the next shipment is coming in and might be as long as 2 months. So I ended picking up the Bushwhackers and should end up costing $425 after the $50 rebate. oh well next mod.

these are the $250 textured ones i found on amazon... sprayed them with rattle can bedliner before i installed them... aside from a couple of missing hardware pieces (easily found anywhere) and had to do a little trimming here and there, no complaints, looks great, do the job. Had a hard time trying to justify $500 for name brand plastic.

Does anyone have any pics off the stock removals and fender flare install. I bought a cheap fender flare set on eBay for about $300, the body shops Ive taken it to quote me about $150 - $200 for install but then give my the run around about putting them on. Ive had them for 2 months in the box and what to attempt to put them on.

does anyone know anything about the 6 piece fender flares on ebay?? i was thinkin that they are the same as the 4 piece sets yall bought, because i think the 5th, and 6th piece refers to the part of the flare that covers the bumper. please let me know what yall think after looking at this link... they show two corner pieces in the picture. thanks

You can see what is probably the smaller 5th and 6th piece in the pics on previous page.

Exactly what I'm thinking.. It looks as if it's referring to the small parts on the rear that go around the rear bumper right? Does anyone have any experience with these 6pc listings on eBay? After searching I don't see any 4pc that have not "ended"..

I should not be worried if the listing I'm looking at says drilling is required, since actual bushwackers do require drilling 2 holes if I remember correctly..

I got my generic fenders from eBay today for Christmas. They seem to be perfect replicas. All 6 pieces, instructions are identical to bushwackers, has the U shaped edging trim with the sticky side, all the bolts, and even the inner pieces (which I was surprised since others said they didn't receive them). Mine was a total of $210 from the seller "Champs_Club". So far it's looking perfect!

To add to the discussion... When I look into the details on the 6 piece the description says "some drilling and some CUTTING required.

I do not see either of those on any of the four piece sets. Also looks like some of the four piece sets install WITHOUT removing the original flares.

And... What needs to be "cut" on the 6 piece sets? I'm not necessarily opposed to doing some drilling or cutting but would like to know what I'm getting into before I order.

Any more updates on these? Thinking about ordering some soon
Just don't install them if you are running a stock size tire, they'll look stupid.

They make your tires look tiny. 285's are barely large enough and still look kinda goofy. To really pull off the look you need 35's.

This is the front. I got the back installed before heading off to college again. But the truck stays at home while studying. They fit nice and tight. ImageUploadedByAG Free1454350083.943214.jpg

Have you not taken a look at the install instructions for bushwackers? M the instructions included with my eBay ones was an exact copy and the install followed the instructions to the tee

That's the idea. Thinking of doing 35s
