Question Installing fender flares & mudflaps

RE: 2014 Ran 1500 Crewcab
I have received front & rear rubber mudflaps for trucks with fender flares from MOPAR on line, and will receive EGR 1"OEM style fender flares for all wheelwells later in the week. (advertised as no-drill/no tape)

1) Is there a proper sequence for installing, as with flares 1st or mud flaps 1st?

2 The truck has standard 17" wheels & tires. Will I need to remove the tires
to install the fender flares & mud flaps?

I would appreciate comments from owners that have installed these items.

Hey. Flares first, then mud flaps. And no, you won't have to remove the wheels and tires.

I'm pretty sure you'll do a better quality install than some dealers do. I dragged some salesmen over to a 1500 in their showroom the other day to show them the butchery that passed for the install of the rubber mud flaps. Told them I'll be installing my own when they arrive.

And I see what people mean when they say apply 3M clear tape over the areas that will see friction because their mud flaps moved ALL over the place.

WHY don't the stock (non-molded) flaps have more integrity? IOW's why haven't they come up with a better system of attaching them.

They:

* Do NOT sit in place, but will 'flap' in the breeze
* The raised-curved profile doesn't seem to have great fitment against the flare
* This poor fitment/gap will encourage the gathering of salt and crap and hence - rust

We need another solution VS stock rubber mud flaps with the stock flares IMHO.


Good luck!
