    do you have to cut out above the wheel well when installing or is it just the front and back of the wheel well? Like I said in another post I have some body rot starting. If I can cut it off now it would be better. I need about 2 inches above the rear wheel to get it all off. Or would I have to go with a custon flare? Maybe soms lawn edging?

    You cut everything.....not sure about these trucks but I put a set on my 92 and they cut 2" all the way around i believe.....then the flares are at least a few inches tall,so,id say they cover at least 4-6" above and around the wheelwell opening....Very good for covering rust!!!

    Correct you are. I am putting some on now. The top edge is needed to secure the flare. I suppose that you could cut it and bend a new lip, but you would have to even it out by cutting the bottom also.

    Soon. I actuall did get them for $100 and shipping, but The gimps (rubber gasket thingys) were missing. Trailtoyz has a set coming my way, which is really cool of him since its a low buck weird part.

    Which is not a bad deal. Mine needed a little cleanup, but I will have about $150 in them.
