Finally got the flares on!

I finally got my FX4 flares on (thanks again to cartmanea). Now I just can't wait to get my black grill and get it painted and then find someone to powder coat the bumpers!

Cool, double sided tape?
I have a Fx4 and think that I'm going to have mine painted black, and powercoat my bumpers black.

Double sided tape and some small stainless bolts and nylock nuts for the rear. It's a shame we're not closer I'd trade you bumpers before powder coat.

Those look good. I like the color too. They compliment your truck nicely.

Truck looks good, the way your sits now is exactly the way mine should be sitting soon. I have an FX4 and am currently looking for chrome grill and bumpers to replace mine, the only difference is my truck is blue. The grey looks good against the blue but it is a littl too dark for me, and the chrome against this blue looks great too me

Man! I'd trade you in a heart beat, and throw in the nerf bars. Sucks we're so far apart.

Your truck looks so good. To me the crew cab long bed doesn't always look good but yours is set up just right and looks tough. Makes me really want to put the leveling kit on my truck. How are your BFGs holding up with all the miles and how many miles are on them now?

Thanks man! I didn't want the long bed, but it was end of the season and got a hell of a deal, and all they had was cclb's. But now I love it, wouldn't own anything but one now. The BFG's have 40k on them and I'd say have at least 25k left on them. I really want to go up to the 325/60/20 next time, but man there is a serious jump in price.

I bought some from a guy on here and can't get them to stick worth a chit. I've removed them twice and re-did it with both the white 3M tabe and the black 3M tape. It sticks to the truck just fine but not the flares. The main problem areas are at the front and back where it curves up under the bed
