Icon4 What are some good, extra wide off-road fender flares?

PLEASE HELP!!! I love the look of those bolt on bushwackers but you have to bolt them on, so that means I have to drill holes in the body and I live in Ohio and our winters are terrible. I see vehicles no more than 1 or 2 years old with rust starting because of all the salt this town OVERuses! I have a 1999 ranger xlt which came with factory fender flares and pre drilled holes. With the bushwackers that bolt on, does anyone know if they bolt in the existing holes or do you have to drill more holes? If so does anyone know of any fender flares that are really wide and aggressive looking like those that you don't have to drill any holes or cut up the body? It would be really nice if they had the bolt on look too (I like that look lol :p) also any links are greatly appreciated (sorry for rambling!)

If you already have fender flares, you shouldn't have to drill more holes. But if you did, apply some undercoating to the inside of the holes. That should help keep the rust from forming.

Another method is to put silicone on the holes. Just make sure no oil or grease so that it will adhere properly.
