Default Bushwacker flares installed!!

Well after seeing how many rock dings were in the paint and wanting to hide the back yard fix job of the rust on my rear quarters it was time to get some flares. Got them yesterday but it was pretty shitty out so I got them on today! My new rims were in Vancouver yesterday and should be here beginning of next week, they are offset so they should help fill the flares in a bit but I think they look pretty decent right now, other than the fact that the fit and finish isnt all that great. There is a 3/16 (give or take) gap between the rubber on the flare and the fender itself and no way to adjust it tighter, this is on the rear edge of the rear fenders and the flare starts to curve down, both sides..... but you cant see it unless you are looking for it, good thing for black truck I guess









My gf drove it to the grocery store about an hour ago and text me on route saying to buy a new truck because she wants this one now that it sounds good with the exhaust and is starting to look better, even though it looked good before

thanks guys! wasnt too sure when I ordered them, I love the look of a truck with offset wheels and no flares, but I know my paint will hate me and I will hate all the rock chips in the paint, and it covers up the different shade of black that I used when I cleaned up the rust so its a win win -550 bucks lol I think the wheels I ordered will set it off

I also need to find a spot to relocate the HEMI badge, I was thinking either just under the RAM on the drivers door, and the 00 on the passengers. or where the hemi badge is on the 06-up but I dont think it would look right there

Had them on my 3rd gen, didn't have any gaps on mine. Try getting a helping hand to really push them into the fenders as you tighten them up

I had the same problem when I first installed them, they would even vibrate on the front fenders when I was on the highway. 3 months later, they are mostly touching the fenders everywhere. I'm really pleased with the final result.

Those look great can't wait to see them with your new wheels! So this gf is a keeper if you told you to get a new truck and she would have this one. Only problem I am sure it was you GIVE me this one and buy another one.
