Default full coverage flares?

I recently bought a 2016 F150 and someone had put some cheap giant pocket style eBay flares on it. It has stock wheels so this looked bad. It has scratched up the fender edges where it has been rubbing. I took them off and am looking from something that goes up a little further closer to the indention to hide the scratches. The raptor flares go all the way up right into that crease but all the raptor conversion flares I have seen are still at least 1" or more away from the crease. I found this kit specifically on eBay ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/15-16-Ford-...-/122280088819 ) that shows the flares almost all the way to the crease, but I cant find them by themselves, only in this kit. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have a 2wd 5.0l and don't want the rivet style flares. Im looking for something with minimal extension but comes up as close to that fender crease as possible.

Thanks in advance

See how they come all the way to the crease.

I've been searching for something similar but amazon and ebay have turned up little. Only aftermarket flares I have seen that cover the crease and aren't rivet style are from Roush here:

They come with LED sidelight markers but at that price I am looking for an alternative myself.

me too I just think itís poor photoshop. That being said that is why Iím worried about the coverage that itís just poor photoshop and it doesnít really come up that high. Any rich people want to test these out for the sake of the greater good. lol

Do you have to have flares? If not, you can always have the rockers and arches repainted or sprayed with Line-X.

not crazy about the look on a 2 wheel drive truck. Trying to find some sport style flares I can paint. Repainted sections on the truck are never as good as factory.

OK....on a 2wd, you can always two-tone the rockers like a King Ranch...but please...not the FUGLY gold color. Just ideas.
