Review & Install Video
What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com, and today I am bringing you my quick review and breakdown of the Barricade Premium Molded Fender Flares, fitting your 2009 through 2014 F-150. So in this video I'm gonna talk about who these fender flares are gonna appeal to, the construction and materials that went into these flares, what you should expect to be spending, and then we're gonna take a quick look at the installation, which is my favorite aspect, as there's not gonna to be any type of modification or drilling that's gonna go onto your truck, but we'll talk about that later and I'm gonna be giving these a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour and a half to get these onto your truck. So running a set of fender flares doesn't necessarily mean that you need to have a leveled or a lifted truck, but in the event that you're gonna be adding a lift kit down the road, these are gonna make your truck look that much more aggressive. So not only you gonna be toughening up the looks and size of your truck, but you're gonna be protecting it from anything that you may come across, be it on or off-road, and they're sure to eat up a ton of mud or rocks or anything else that you're gonna be putting your truck through.
So taking a look at the construction and materials of the Barricade Fender Flares that I have with me today, these are gonna be comprised of a very tough but durable ABS plastic material, which is gonna be sure to take a beating as well as being the ideal type of material if you're looking to run your truck off-road. So this material that I have here in front of me is gonna be a smooth matte black finish, but in the event that you wanna have these painted to give your truck a little bit more of a custom look, you can absolutely do so. As well, is if you're looking for a textured finish, we do have these on site too. This material is gonna be UV resistant, so you can rest easy knowing that these are not gonna be fading or warping over time on your F-150.
So last but not least in terms of the looks department, what we're gonna see, you're gonna have indentations around the flares themselves, which the barricade kit is going to come with some hardware here for your full [SP] rivets. Now, this is typically what you're gonna see in terms of most if not all fender flares, and I think they're a nice little touch. So taking a quick look at the pricing here. Typically when you're shopping for a set of fender flares, that added clearance and aggressiveness will come at a price, and we're gonna see these fall right around 400 bucks. Now that's typically what you're gonna see a set of fender flares run for, but if you take a look on the website, you're gonna see that we do have some less expensive options as well as some that are gonna tip the scales that easily over $500 to $600.
So diving into the installation here, just like I had said in the beginning of the video, you're gonna be looking at a very easy one out three wrenches and about an hour and a half to get these onto your truck. So one of the greatest aspects about these fender flares, just like most if not all of them, is that they're gonna install without any type of drilling, cutting or modification to your F-150. Barricade's gonna provide you all the hardware necessary to get these onto your truck in a heartbeat. So to get a closer look at the installation, before these even hit your truck, what you gonna wanna do is take some of the supplied weatherstripping and hardware from Barricade, and then simply wrap this around the underside of the trim and then assemble your rivets into the indentations right here. So after this, you gonna wanna take your fender flares over to the truck and then remove the factory trim if equipped, as well as the hardware putting it on. After that it's easy as essentially using the provided hardware to throw these back onto your truck, and again, I'm giving these a very easy one out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter and about an hour and a half to get these onto your truck.
So just to wrap things up here, some final thoughts, I definitely like this option just based on the fact that you're gonna be making your truck look that much more aggressive, but down the road if you're gonna be throwing a small leveling kit or even a lift kit at it, you're just gonna be making it look that much more angry. So, that's my quick review and breakdown for the Barricade Premium Molded Fender Flares, for the year 2009 through 2014 F-150, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
