    3M double-sided tape. Works like a champ, one of their main plants is in my town.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, it's the same stuff that the better ventvisor manufacturers use.

    You're looking for a 3M product called "VHB" (Very High Bond). Hope you don't want to remove them later. It's used on million dollar motorhomes to stick the sides on w/o rivets.

    The tape stuff sounds like a good idea, but it has its down sides. The reason why bushwackers dont use the tape is they are trying to give you a factory look. When you use tape, it creates a gap between the fender, and the flare. Have you ever seen the guys driving down the road with the stick on hood scoops? It is really obvious that it is stuck there, and not real. I think you would be much happier with using the screws. They will draw the flare flush with your fender.
    God Bless.
