How to Install Fender Flares on a Ford F-150

F-150 Fender Flares Installation

When it comes to an F150 fender flare installation, choosing a top brand is a must. There are a lot out there, and in fact, the aftermarket is seemingly flooded with Ford fender flares of all shapes and styles—some are great, some are not so great. The main difference between the good, the bad and the ugly really comes down to installation ease. At first, the cheaper flares may seem like a bargain, but when it comes installation time, you may find yourself cutting, drilling or even welding on your truck—not good.

Installation Tips

"Flare” is the practice of pinning a restaurant vest with an array of trinkets and badges, in the hopes of engaging customers in conversation. As it turns out, just like a badge-laden apron sparks instant conversation, promises of ice-cold drinks and piping-hot pizza spark instant responses of, “Yes, I would love to help you install your Ford F10 Fender Flares next weekend!” from any friend who has nothing to do next weekend.

Types of Fender Flares

The second thing to consider is the type of flare you want to install. Whether it’s super-shiny chrome Ford F150 wheel well trim or a set of beefy off-road fender flares Ford F150 monster style, your F150 really stands out with the right trim. If you’ve got your truck set up as a street slammed drag machine, a sky-high trail buster or a tricked out daily driver, there’s a set of fender flares out there just for your rig.

So, when looking for an easy-to-install, off-road fender flare kit for your F150, consider the name brand and the type you want. Here’s a list of some the top, most trusted names in the biz:

Installing Fender Flares on Your F-150

  • Remove factory screws from inside fender well
  • Install double sided tape to new wheel well at contact point
  • Remove tape backing
  • Position flare on truck fender
  • Reinstall factory screws
  • Verify fit and tighten all screws
  • Take your truck out and show it off!
