Those wheels look 1000 times better. But I liked the dsg look better. What are your plan with the flares?

That would have been a tough decision for me.

It looks good either way to me.

Yup. You done fvcked up. Wheels are an improvement, but getting rid of the DSG was a mistake, imo.

Truck still looks good though. I actually liked your Eagle 100 series wheels the best.

Looks too boney and like said above, cheap. I always liked it with the first set of wheels because it didn't look like every other truck on here, but have to agree with wyldechild, the eagles are a really sweet wheel on these trucks. Oh well, it's yours and you can do whatever you want.....just don't put a big *** DC sticker on it.

I think your truck looks way better now than before. I cant stand that two tone crap, and looks way better without the flares. Makes me wanna take off the flares on my 03. looks good man.

Hey, I know this is YEARS after the fact... But I have a few questions...

I just picked up a 2010 Ranger Sport with the same fender trim/flares that you removed from yours. What was under them? Any holes in the body that I'll have to deal with it?

Yes, there are 8-10 holes that are drilled in the fender to hold the flares. Unfortunately the flares are known for rubbing into the paint, so you will also have a distinct line where the flare used to sit.

What was your solution to fix/patch the holes? Whatever you did looks great. Were they welded?

I'm going to be ripping mine off soon and I'm hoping to help out the shop with as much info as I can from people who have done this before. I won't be doing the work - not my think.

Thanks again.

Not my truck, and looking at the pictures, the OP didn't do anything with the holes since they're still visible as is the line left from the flares.

However, welding is probably the best solution for filling the holes. I've seen it done before, but can't remember where. Because of this, each panel will probably have to be repainted. A good painter may be able to blend it in, but it depends on the color and the age of the truck.
