Thanks! and you're welcome....


I originally wanted to get the truck sprayed with the gold lower tone and throw some factory plastic flares on it, but I figured that would be a lot of $$$$ that I didn't have to spare so when I saw a truck with these on it I did some searching and found just how cheap they are to buy and the totally changed the look of the truck IMO

Thanks to all that posted. I like them all, but I have a "thing" for having huge flairs over smaller tires. My truck tires don't stick out that much. I ordered the stainless steel trim today. All of the trucks look good!

Thanks for the compliments everyone! I really like how my truck turned out.

ChargersFaninCO - I paid around $450.00 on line for my fender flares. I thought they were expensive but I love the result.

more pics

i would like to see some pics of the EGR and Bushwacker from the side. Looks to me like the EGR make the rear well opening longer, which I like. The bushwackers make it look taller and more of a square opening. I will be putting some kind of flare on mine soon.

Thank for all the pics guys, good looking rigs.

Be careful with those. They trap dirt between the trim and the sheet metal so you need to take them off every now and then to make sure they are clean and not rusting away the metal behind them. Believe me I know from a bad expierence

ANy one

who has installed bush wacker cut outs,, question for ya.

Are the flexable enough to maybe not trim the top of the wheel opening?

I was thinking about just cutting the front and rear of the opening for the rear tires. Then use a heat gun if neccessary, fit the flares. i do not want the opening any taller, just more room front to rear.

I don't think it would turn out very good. You would have to make them quite a bit wider to not stick down below the bottom of the box and they probably wouldn't keep their shape with the radius change.

I am wanting to install bushwackers on my white f350, do these come with the rubber gasket that goes around the edge of the flare? I seen a set of stampedes that have a rubber gasket that you have to put around the edge, just wondering if bushwackers are like that.

The Bushwacker flares include the rubber seal for the edge of the flare that fits up against the body of the truck. The seal is very easy to install and has 3M adhiesive on it to keep it from moving.

Nothing to add here really, and obviously everyone has their favorite, but personally I have always thought that this is the best looking truck I've come across on this forum. Very Nice! That is all.

Just curious, what's the point of getting tires that stick out if you're going to cover them with flares anyway?
