Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares

If you've installed wider tires on your rig and/or bolted on wheels with more offset, you've probably noticed that the tires are spewing gunk down the side of your truck. Fortunately, add-on fender flares such as Bushwacker Pocket Style flares are an easy solution to this problem. In this application, a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500, the flares offer 2 1/2 inches of tire coverage and they install in the existing factory holes with no drilling or cutting. They offer 100-percent UV protection, so they won't chalk, crack, or warp. They have decorative stainless-steel hardware for a bolt-on look, and come in a matte black finish that can be easily painted.

1. Bushwacker Pocket Style fender flares help keep crud from flying off your tires and onto the body of your truck. Or someone else's. Here you can see the finished product attached to a 2006 Ram 2500.

For this specific install, the team at Attitude Performance in Arlington Heights, Illinois, sent the flares out to a body shop to be painted to match the customer's truck. After they were painted, the install took a little over an hour.

2. Before the flares were sent out to be painted, the holes for mounting and the decorative stainless steel hardware were drilled. After the flares were painted, the stainless steel hardware was installed in each flare (shown) and the self-adhesive edge trim was installed (this goes between the flare and the body of the truck).
