It's relatively quick and pain-free to install your new flares. For all four fenders you'll only need about an hour to put them on. Every model of fender flares may have slightly different requirements, so make sure to thoroughly read through the included instructions. But generally speaking, these are the steps you need to take to mount your new fender flares:
- If your truck has factory fender flares, unbolt them from the wheel well and remove them.
- Check the fit of your fender flares against your vehicle's body. If they fit right, the bottom edge will line up with the bottom of the fender and the front will fit snug up against the bumper.
- Some light drilling may be necessary if your vehicle did not come with fender flares. Most fender flare kits include a template that will show you where to drill new holes.
- Many fender flares include double-sided automotive tape for additional mounting security. Apply the tape to the fender first, then peel off the other side of the backing and apply the flare to the body, making sure to line the holes up properly.
- Insert bolts through the holes and tighten them on.
