Q: What should I do if there is gap between the flare and the truck body?
You can loosen the screws first, have someone help push the flare against the truck body to make it snug, then tighten the screws from the top of the wheel well.
Q: How Are Fender Flares Installed?
It is a relatively easy process to install your own fender flares, and the process of installing all four fender flares shouldn't take more than an hour. Check the fit of your new fender flares by laying them against the body of your vehicle. If they fit correctly, the bottom edge will align with the bottom of your vehicle's fender and the front will snuggly fit against the bumper. Note: If your vehicle did not originally have fender flares, you may need to drill holes in the body of your car or truck. Use the template that comes with your fender flare kit and reference your install sheet.
Q: For the pocket style fender flare, the rivets or the bolt that goes to the top of the flare is too short ?
The Rivets on the top of the flare is for decoration only, they do not bolt through the truck body. Please do not drill a hole on you truck. Mounting points are under the wheel wells and please follow the instruction thouroghly.
