I did pretty much the same thing. But I did drill the hole for the front guard. Without the top screw, there is a small space between the edge of the fender and the guard that can catch dirt and crud.I installed the Mopar splash gaurds a few days ago,and did not drill any holes at all. The factory screws ,I found, are plenty. My truck is bright white,so I just pressed a dab of black rtv silicone into the vacant extra hole. Both front and rear flaps are very secure and look GREAT! No way I was gonna drill holes in a nice,new truck! Jeff :smiley_thumbs_up:
I'm not really happy with the fit of the rear guards. They fit fine with the fender opening but they don't fit nice and flat against the wheel well liner. I wonder if the Husky guards are the same. I think Mopar guards were designed before the wheel well liners became standard on all the Rams.
