Show me your fender flairs!

Need fender flairs for my 02. Common rust-belt problem getting to my truck on the fender wells on the bed. I cannot afford to reskin and repaint. Was going to repair best I can, then hide the ugly with fender flairs. Hopefully that will hide the problem for a few more years. I don't want them to be too huge, my tires are only 265's. Something that just covers the flat area of the fender just above the lip. Would like to see some photos with info on the brand you have on your truck.

Not technically a 'flare' as they stay tight to the rig, but they do go up about an inch or so all the way around. Putco brand 'fender trim', got them online for a little over $100...

Not a fan of chrome on the fender lips. I would get a set of the '05-'07 painted fender trim. You might find a used set on craigslist or ebay, buying new they are pretty spendy.

The OEM ones are next to impossible to find, and 1 of them is discontinued through Ford. All the wrecked trucks I found it was the first thing to go if in good condition, if they were still available to buy off a wrecked truck the owners wanted crazy money for them.

I bought the Bushwacker OEM flares and they look good, cover a little more than the oem ones, and you can paint them. When I get home I will post up a pic for you so you can compare them to the putco ones above.

My truck had EGR flairs on it when I got them. They fit great and I think they look better than the Bushwacker flares with the odd body line on them.

The Bushwacker OE have a sharper body line and the upper portion almost looks concave.

I mis spoke, mine dont look like that because I bought the street flares. Sorry. That body line is why I didnt by the OE ones. Thanks for reminding me again.

Those are good looking, I like the flatter design of the '05-'07 OEM flares better though.

I would have had a set if I could have found them for less that 400 for the set, that was impossible at the time, but then again it was my fault for not ordering it with them.

The only options I am missing on the truck is rear park sensors, manual tcase (I kick myself everyday for that), and 2 tone paint with flares.
