    Hello. I am looking into replacing the OEM white fender flares with some aftermarket black flares.

    I do not want to cut anything if possible.

    Also, on about 1/4 of each of the OEM flares, they are attached to either the front or rear bumper which I really don't want to modify unless I have to.

    Any suggestions on what type of flare to purchase and installation guidance?

    I think the only aftermarket flares available that I know of are the Bushwacker Pocket Style flares. Those I know you only have to remove the driver side rear oem flare all the others can stay on and are simply covered by the Bushwackers.

    If I'm not mistaken I believe the front bumper extension part of the flare on the front bumper is actually molded in to the front cover and can't be removed. Might want to check that before ordering something, may not have a choice but to cut those.

    I think members just paint them or plasti dip them. @Toyojay is correct the front and rear part of the flares are molded.
