Question Fender Flares Installed but a Question

Got my Mopar fender flares installed yesterday and overall I am very happy the way they turned out, see http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?p=345334#post345334.

However I have an issue with the front ones. They do not go all the way down on the front, seems like they are designed for the RAMs with the metal bumpers only since they did not come with an extension piece. Now since I color matched them they do not really stand out that much however to me they seem a bit unfinished. So my question is are there any others on here that have the same flares installed on the sport with the plastic bumper and were you able to purchase an extension piece ? Or is there anyone who installed the Bushwacker 2" OEM ones that used the short piece and has the long pieces left over (and would be willing to ship them to me) ? I may be able to modify mine to work with the longer Bushwacker pieces. If anyone has any other ideas I'm open to suggestions. Thanks

I can barely see the gap in the pics but a call to Bushwacker might be in order. They are just down the road from me and are great to deal with. They might be able to help you out with some short pieces to fill in the gap.

Yeah, the fronts don't go all the way down. Check out my sig pic. I would have liked it if they did, but I'm getting used to the look.

So after seeing them in the light today I have convinced myself that they look fine. They blend in really well with the truck since they are perfectly color matched. So on to the next mod.

RB, I did not even notice that yours stops as well. Thought you had the small piece installed. So why did you not put the small one on to fill in the gap ? It looks fine anyway since yours are also color matched.
