Just like you never bring a knife to a gunfight, you never bring a factory rig to the off-road jamboree. Not only will you get laughed back to the suburbs by local trail hounds, your truck could take a backcountry beating. So before you hit the trail, armor your rig with the mil-spec form and function of Smittybilt M1 Bolt On Fender Flares.
Designed to flare out about 1.5" on all four corners, your Smittybilt M1 Pocket Fender Flares pull double duty. The additional tire coverage deflects flinging road rubble and trail debris. The wicked flare and bolt-on style give your truck or SUV a military-grade profile.
Molded from heat-resistant, UV-stable, acrylic-capped OEM-quality ABS, Smittybilt M1 Bolt On Fender Flares are built as tough as they look. The lightly textured OEM matte-black finish looks rugged as is, and also readily accepts custom paint. And when it comes to installation, the toughness ends and the easy begins. The no-drill process means it mounts right to your vehicle's factory holes with included hardware. What's more, Smittybilt backs your M1 Bolt On Fender Flares with a 90-day warranty.

The flares look great in the truck. I didn't like the look with them not painted but once I had them painted they really look nice. The installation isn't as easy as the videos lead you to believe, but other than that it's a good product.

the install was very simple they are nice fender flares.. on the other hand there not the same as the picture. In my case I am looking for a more kinda flat, sleek, Bolt on look. Just like the picture looks and these are just bubbly kinda sucks not what i was looking for I

The Flares appear tough but color fades very quickly. I've had them installed for a month in summer, and they are already noticeably duller than when I bought them. Also, the holes for the bolts in the wheel wells don't even come CLOSE to matching the holes in the existing factory holes. I had to drill my own holes...which defeats the entire purpose of these "no drill" flares. Also, the high points which are supposed to fit into the grooves in the fenders are off. Very poor quality control!

I am the original owner of my 2008 Ram Quad Cab (67K miles) and contemplated buying a 2014. When I saw this product I was sold. It put a new muscle look on the already perfect truck exterior. The neighbors think I upgraded my vehicle and admire my fresh truck look. We may keep the truck another six years.

Fender flares look awesome and sit snug and tight up against the truck. The part of the install that took the longest was preparting the flares (screwing in the accent pieces and putting on the rubber seal). They look great with offset wheels or wheel spacers/adapters.

The flares are way bigger than they look in the picture. They are bada** they make your truck look way beefier! Definitely worth the money. One thing they could've done is put the bolts on before sending it's a hassle to put them all on.

2nd pair I ordered for a truck.. These were great .. had them painted .. and put on all the hardware and seals and fit so perfect .. nice and tight fit .. very easy too .. better than the lunde brand I ordered for my 2010 silverado.. Easy to follow instructions .. The longest part was the hardware and seals .. install for all four was 15 mins each .. great product .. I never installed the bush whacker brand.. but why pay more for them when these look fantastic... !!

These SmittyBilt Fender Flares look great on my truck and fit perfectly. Total install was about 2 hours for all 4, and I was distracted by a football game, so it could definitely be done quicker.
