Icon5 Front fenders changed after '07?


I bought my '11 XLT used in 2013. It came off the lot with rear mud flaps, which fit on the vehicle so well that I am assuming they were factory equipment or custom molded. I am looking to get rear mud flaps. Amazon has an OEM set that says it fits up to '07. Will the fronts still fit my '11, or do I need to just put up with getting some universal ones and drilling?

In case it makes a difference:
2011 XLT, 4.0 SOHC, 4x4, no fender flares, no lift or lowering. No suspension mods.

Thanks in advance!

You may need to drill holes for the front flaps to fit right. I know that all fenders 93+ were iterchangable, but all 3 options of fender flares did use different mounting holes. IIRC, 98 or 01+is when they had the molded body line at the top. Between 2007 and 2011, you should be fine for them fitting.

Do you have the black plastic cover at the bottom of your front fenders behind each tire? If you remove that, there should be a hole pre-drilled into the fender. That hole should also be used by the factory mud flap.
