i think you should leave it flareless. if you're going to wheel the truck the flares will probably get ripped off anyway lol. easiest way for the front imo is getting a set of fenders off of a truck that has them if you don't want to ruin yours....not sure on the template
if you dont mind me asking, how much did you pay for the flares? Im looking around and dont know what to offer if i find a set. 01-05 ones right?
