Fender Flares On Stepside

Now, i know this was posted before, but you never really answered the question. Can they be mounted on a stepside? Second question, where can i get the stock gray flares if they fit on a stepside?

I wouldn't think it would look good. Maybe get it photoshopped first...

if you are asking because you need a wider fender to stick out wider because you have wider tires. Perrys fab and fiber make a fiberglass flareside fenders with up to a 8 inch flare.

The reason I want them is for the whole styling prospect. I have seen regular side beds with the flares on them and it flowed nicely with the stock unpainted valance and rear xlt bumpers. See, I have asked alot of questions since I have been on here and Im trying to get an idea on how to make my ranger stand out from all others, and I think i have it in my mind on what/how I'm gonna do it. But thanx for the information and the comments...I think....and you will see how/why I asked whenever I get my project done. Thanx!

I actually think it would look 10x better if it was just the front fender flares on the stepside bed and not the rears...

Anyone ever just do that. I think I am going to do it because the rear just don't look good at all. I have an edge bumper so my rear bumper doesn't line up with the stock xlt fenders... so puting only the front flares on would make it line up and flow I think.,
