Fender Flares - Where to buy?

The dealer wants nearly $500 for 4 pieces of plastic, and Junk Yards arnt much better at $400. (IF you can find them)

I would prefer stock, but will investigate after market is they appear to be as close to stock as possible.

They also need to be painted to match my truck (which I can do myself)

ebay is hit and miss.

Also, will 01-03 work on my 04?

I need a set due to a major rust hole forming on the driverside rear panel above the wheel.

I will check the next time in NH JY.
$400 is way too high, but they own them.

What type are you looking for, EDGE type (best ones to me) or the XLT versions or maybe the exposed fastener ones.

The EDGE one need a little more work to attach, OEM Clips and a bunch of holes that need to be aligned properly.

I will chk out the JY, hopefully this friday.

The EDGE Flares to me are the best looking, they stick out a little more than other OEM Flares but the hassle is mounting and getting the clips needed.

The clips are a PITA to get off without damage, it is hard to up above the wheel well to release them.

Sorry, the EDGE Flares are gone…
I should have picked them up just for re-selling.

I will keep my eyes open and post if I find some.

Check out the thread for the 03 Edge on craigslist. Those were in good shape.
