Default Fender Flares

I decided I wanted to get some fender flares on my 07 f150 king ranch. The only thing is that I don't really know much about them. So what are the best Whats the typical hangover to get? And how do you paint them to match the color of the truck?

There are several brands, but Bushwacker is probably the most popular. Go to Bushwacker.com

Take them to a paint/body shop and here's tips on how to paint them:

The paint shop will use the factory paint code which on a sticker in the driver's door jamb to match the truck's paint.

People used to charge us 200 to 250 to PTM. Them but paint has went up a little. Maybe 300 now of course that is off the truck. I would install them then take them off, get them painted then put them back on. That way all your holes are pre drilled, etc. And you already know how to install them, not dropping or scratching a nice new painted flare!! And Bushwacker is the way to go.

Mine were $350 to get painted. Some of the cost goes towards the prep work before the paint is applied. Because they are flexible, an adhesion promoter needs to be used or the paint could crack and peel over time.

There are paint stores that sell the adhesion promoter and factory color matched paint in aerosol cans, but it is pretty expensive and the results may not be good. Plus there is other prep and chemicals needed. I think that a good body shop is the way to go.

Below are my Bushwacker Extend a Flare.
