Default Bushwacker install w/Pic's!!

Flares are on! It took a few days to get it done. During the test fit I discovered the HEML 5.7 liter badge was a 1/4" low and had to be removed on both sides. I need a few supplies. Fishing line I got 20lb test, 3M adhesive remover and some gloves. The badges came right off. I broke the first string. I was a little too rough with it. Next was the tuff part, getting that glue off. I didn't get a wheel because I didnt want to wait for it. Took a bit but with my daughters help I got it off.
On the rear flares, remove three factory screws and reuse on the flare. Three clips go on the top of the wheel well for more screws. No drilling required. The front remove three factory screws and reuse on the flare. Total time just over an hour.
I am still getting that tiny bit of rubbing at full lock to the left. Picked up a pair of shears to trim it. I gotta remove the flare and trim both it, and the wheel well plastic. As soon as I get the time.

I love the Bushwacker flares. If I wasn't going for the sport look on my truck, I'd nab a set of those. Looks good man.

Never really considered them till I got my new tires and wheels. They stick out two inches and were throwing all kinds of schmutz up the side of the truck. Wanted to fix that and stay legal. Now that they are on I'm glad I did it.
