Looks pretty good to me, I just noticed you're in Ellijay. I'm just up the road a bit in Blairsville.

Looks great, i am really tempted to do this but i am worried about how it will look in a couple of yrs, is there anyone that has done this, and had it on for a while. Will it crack or flake off, how do the rock chips look?

If you were worried about fading, you could clear coat. I don't think rock chips would be that bad.

Any tips for removing and installing the flares?

Pull them off. If it sounds and feels like it is going to break, chances are you are doing it right lol. All that it is is a bunch of plastic clips that hold it in.

WowMike2001's guide to Fender Flare Painting. Much more in depth.

The clips in the side of the fenders are like this. The key is to use a small screwdriver or something to squeeze the ends together and it will pop right out. Or you could just yank on it, but chances are you would break the clips.

Every non stepside Ranger should have flares.
