Fender Flares

Looking for advice on fender flares. I recently upgraded my rims/tires and I have a -12 offset. So the tires stick out about 2" from the wheel well. I want to get some protection from rocks/debris for the side of my truck. I looked into the BushWAcker but it says sheet metal removal is required. Does this mean I HAVE to cut out some of my wheel well? Not looking to do that if that's the case, mainly for resale purposes. Anybody?

I had the Bushwacker on an old truck of mine and to my knowledge there are different styles. The only ones that require you to cut out some metal are the "cut out" style.

100% UV Protection. No chalking, No cracking, No warping
Comes complete with decorative stainless steel hardware for a 'bolt-on' look without touching the vehicle's surface
No vehicle body side drilling or cutting - installs using the existing factory holes
OEM matte black finish, or easily custom painted to match or accent any vehicle
Front Pair Part # 20055-02 or Rear Pair Part # 20050-02
Hardware Replacement Kit Part # PK1-20917

Cut out:
Key Points
Adds up to 5.00 in. of tire coverage from debris
Sheet metal removal allows for wheel articulation
OEM matte black finish or easily custom painted
100% UV-protected Dura-Flex(R) 2000 ABS material

The cut-outs are what i have on mine and yes you have to cut out i think 4 inchs all the way around the existing wheel well. The only thing i would advise is if you dont have enough tire sticking out to compliment the flare it will look goofy and sucked in like this


Those are 35s just for reference

There are several different flare choices from Bushwacker, as well as other companies that don't require any cutting on your truck.

Here is a good thread showing some different examples of flares: Show me your fender flairs! - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

I have the same offset. On a 9inch wide wheel. The bushwackers cover perfect. Cutouts are the only kind u remove metal. For our truck there is 3 or 4 small bolts u remove that hold the liners in and u reuse them

I have bush wacker with -24 10inch wheel I think pocket style. I would put 3m underneath cause eventually they wear the paint off. Now I just sprayed bedliner underneath to protect it just wish I did it sooner
