Wheel Well Trim?

Hey guys.... The guy that owned my truck before me had fender flares on the truck. Of course, I found rust under the flares. Anyways.... I plan on fixing up the rust and repainting the front fenders, as well as just blending some fresh paint around the rear fender wells. And, at the same time, I'd like to add some stainless steel wheel well trim to the truck.

What brand should I look for? Does Ford make this? Or should I look at an aftermarket company? I'm hoping to get the "stick on" ones, because I don't want to be drilling holes.

Also, where's the best place to buy them from? I'm from Canada, so if there are Canadian dealers, that would be nice. But ordering in the U.S. is fine too (I'm close to the border, so I just get stuff shipped there).

Let me know... Thanks guys!!

Ford makes some and I like them the best they fit flat against the fender most aftermarket ones stick out a little bit I had some aftermarket ones on my 95 and took one off cause it got a little dented and it had mud and all kinds of stuff behind it so I checked all the others and same thing might of just been an install mess up but I prefer the flat ones from Ford. By the way the ford ones clip on but you can screw them on too.

I still have them... They're sitting in the shed. Interested in them? Here's a pic with them on the truck before I took them off:

Thanks for the reply. Maybe I'll go to the Ford dealership and see what they want for a set. I want to glue them on, or use two way tape. I don't want to drill holes.

I had Bushwackers on the '79.... And guess what?!? THEY BROKE OFF!!!!





In Bushwackers defense.... I kinda hit a tree. There's was a really narrow opening at the top of a hill. And when you're front tires are off the ground at the top of the hill, it's hard to steer away from the trees!!!! Hahaha!




But seriously..... I'm going for a cleaner look on this truck. This one's not a wheeling rig, unlike my '79 and yours Tank. I think you need a fairly large tire (40" or taller) to make the Bushwackers look good.

.......it's no questions asked.....I already switched out one set.....

They can be painted any colour. I think they were painted white.
