Pretty sure those are the same as mine. They are OEM flares. They fit great and are relatively cheap. I think I paid 300 something for mine from Ford.



2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

Here's mine no idea what brand either as I bought the truck with them. Not really much of a flare maybe an inch or inch and half. Looks better now that I have 35's on it.


'02 F-350 Powerstroke Standard Cab/Long Bed
I got a bunch of crap on it....

I'm leaning more towards the SS Street Scene ones because they retain the smooth body lines and finder looks without the fake bolt on look and easier to clean without worrying about water sitting in the pockets and dripping out later. They are not as easy to clean. The SS also give 1/2"-1" more coverage. I appreciate all the pictures all of you have posted up so far, it's been helpful and enlightening on the subject.
