For the price, these flares should be pre-drilled. Instructions very detailed and clear. The rubber edging installation was the most difficult and time consuming part. Had to elongate one screw hole in order to make flair fit snug against the fender. Otherwise, fit was perfect. I realize that "No drilling" is a big selling point, but I didn't like the clips provided to secure the rear flairs. Rather than use the clips, I drilled four 3/16 holes in the pinch weld and used #10 machine screws, washers, and nuts. Didn't take any more time than trying to make the clips work. Finished product really stands out on my white truck, and does a super job of keeping the mud off. Good product, easy install. Thumbs up!!!!!

I put my Fender Flares on my 2010 F-150 to keep the mud and gravel away from the paint. This had been a problem since I added a set of chrome rims that had an offset of 10%. Bushwacker solved this problem and also added a great new look to my truck. I spent an hour reading the directions and installing the flares. I left my flares black since I have a white truck with a black grill, chrome step bars with black rubber inserts and black window trim. It really looks great according to my friends and family. I can't say enough about the customer service at AutoAnything, especially Jennifer ! You rock girl !!

Got the textured, black, riveted version and it looks great against our black truck. All hardware was included (there was ample extra rubber) and the installation couldn't have been easier. The only thing that is now missing are some bigger tires as the look isn't bad with the stock tires, but it'll look better with 1" wider ones.

First, I love the flares. They look awesome and give so much more tire coverage and clearance. I could probably go up to 32" tires with my present 3" OME lift with no clearance problems. Had the flares installed by a very knowledgable and well respected off-road shop. It took them 6.5 hours to install. The actual cutting/installation took 5 hours and the addl. 1.5 was for trial and error fitting/cutting to get the inner panels to to fit right and look natural. The installation instructions gloss over this this very briefly, but don't go into much detail. All this said, I am really happy with the flares and have no regrets.
