F450 Bumper Flare Extensions: Will they fit?

Planning on adding some Bushwacker pocket flares to my truck when I get the lift and tires done, but I have never been a huge fan of the unfinished look of the front bumper in combination with the flares.

Is it possible to install the F450 / F550 front bumper extensions to fix this, and have it look good?

Are they close to the same width as the BW flares?

Anyone have pics of this done to a SRW truck?

Would like to know also! Ive often contemplated popping the ones off of my truck at work quick to see how they'd look once I get my bushwackers installed.

Hey, thanks for the pics, but do you have any bigger pics?

Truck looks great, and actually quite relevant to what I am doing, by the looks of it.

What is your suspension, wheel and tire set-up?

Looks like 20x10 Fuel Hostage? With 35x12.5x20 tires? -12 or -24 offset? Levelled or 4"?

I am curious about your specifics.

I just got my BW pocket flares from the painters, wheels/tires (20x10, ET-24 Fuel Krank PVD Chrome with Toyo 35x12.5 M/T) should be here this week sometime, 4.5" Carli kit will get here in a couple weeks.

Debating about doing the F450 fender extension. On the Platinum with painted bumper, I think the painted flare extensions would add a nice touch and blend right in.

I found one other picture of a white truck with this done by Googling, but no details on setup.

It looks really good on the chrome bumper too, with your truck.

I think I will do it eventually, now that I have seen a couple pics.

Besides the moldings for $100 each side, are there any other parts one needs to buy?

Thank you sir!

My setup is just a leveling kit with airbags in the rear with a set of 20x10 Fuel Hostage's in -24 offset wrapped in a set of 37x12.50x20's

I took a couple close up pictures. I'm not sure what comes with them when you order a set because I put a ranch hand on our 550 and just stole the caps off of the original bumper.

I hope this helps with your project!

(I have no idea why the pictures are sideways. On my computer they're all right side up)

i ordered the new bumper extension parts, but no hardware as it looked on parts diagram like it was simply push pins and they wanted $8+ at Ford for the pins. Figured I could source out aftermarket cheaper.

I got the parts and took a look at them.

So they have no instructions and the parts diagrams suck, so I have a couple of questions:
Anyone know how the extension fits onto the bumper?

I know I need to drill 2 holes on trailing edge of bumper for the push pins, but I am trying to figure out how the rest of it connects.

It looks like there is a clip or hanger that it attaches to (there are also a couple holes on backside of the extension part), but I have no idea what it looks like.

Do I have to drill additional holes?

Was hoping to avoid additional holes in face of bumper, thinking I might be able to do something with some double sided 3M trim tape instead?

I would like to figure this out before I spend a lot to get the parts painted.

Maybe this is more trouble than its worth.
