Are the fender flares hard to get off? I so badly want to paint mine! How do they go back on?

I found a little trick to get them off.

First remove the screws in the wheel wells.

Second, remove the push plugs, one on each end of the rear flares, and one from the rear side of the front flares.

Third, start at either end of the flares and pull out and up. The flares are attached by clips to the fenders, but they will release if you pull up and out. Once you get the flares off, they may or may not take some of the clips along with them. Any clips that stay on the truck can be removed with a pair of pliers and a firm grip on them. Once they are removed, they snap back onto the flares easily. Reinstall the flares in reverse order. Don't be afraid to pull really hard on the clips once the flares are removed, I noticed the fender and quarter panels were about 1/8" thick, part of the reason our trucks tip 5k on the scale. FORD TOUGH!

There's a bit of color difference under where the pin stripes were, but nothing a good clay and wax can't handle. On to the pics...

I removed my door guards on a 2002 dark blue screw and the guy I bought it off of lived on a gravel road.Im not going to lie it was pretty nasty under there.I used Meguiars rubbing compound on the door then waxed it.Turned out great,can't even tell they were ever there.So I say go for it
