removing chrome fender flares

Hey guys, anybody know how hard it is to get off chrome fender flares like these:
Amazon.com: 99-07 FORD F350 CHROME FENDER TRIM Wheel Well Moulding 2WD 4WD Dually F-350 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007: Automotive Amazon.com: 99-07 FORD F350 CHROME FENDER TRIM Wheel Well Moulding 2WD 4WD Dually F-350 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007: Automotive
I am looking at buying a 05' dually, but these fender flares just drive me nuts. I do not like them at all, and they are steering me away from what is otherwise a nice truck. Would they leave marks on the paint after they are off?? Thanks

Buddy of mine just installed a set of these on his 06 lol. If the ones on this truck are installed the same way, you can take them off with a pair of pliers. His just had little metal straps that basically suck those chrome trim pieces against the fender. And his had rubber around the edges so they wouldn't damage the paint. I imagine you might have some rub marks on the paint since it's a dark color, but you should be able to buff it off. IF they're the same as my buddy's. Pretty cool design how they attach, should come off really easy unless they screwed them in, but his set didn't even come with screws at all.

You bet! They use a thin little strap that's maybe a 1/4" wide with a hook on the end. You hook it to the lip on the inside of the fender and push the flat part through a loop on the flare itself, pull it tight, and bend it back to the inside. You can break them off or cut them with a pair of dykes.
