Review & Install Video
Hey, what's going on guys? Adam, here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a quick overview and installation of the Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flares in the matte black finish available for all 2015 and newer F-150s. So in this video, of course, I'll be going over the functionality and styling of the OE style fender flares from Bushwacker, as well as their materials and construction. I'll top the video off at the end, to give you the installation, which I'll let you know upfront will not require any drilling or permanent modifications so, of course, it will get the one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.
The Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flares in the matte black finish will be for any 2015 or newer F-150 owner looking to get almost identical original equipment manufactured style rendition of the fender flares in the matte black finish for a very sleek factory style look. There are definitely a ton of reasons why you'd be out there shopping for additional fender flares for your 2015 or newer F-150. Some of those reasons may be just looking for additional tire clearance for a bigger wheel and tire package. Maybe you're looking for a stronger, more durable fender flare to add some more protection to the side profile of your truck. And third, maybe you're just looking for a replacement because your factory fender flares have been taking a beating after so many miles.
So the latter option I just mentioned is the one we're gonna be focusing on today because that's really the audience this one caters to. Now, with that said, if you're taking your 2015 or newer F-150 on a lot of work-related adventures, or if you're doing a lot of extreme off-roading, then you know with all the miles you're putting on, and the work you're putting in, those factory fender flares can definitely take a beating from the work-related trail hazards, the mud, the work-related debris and all, so on and so forth. With that said, the Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flares make for a perfect replacement giving you the factory-style rendition of the fender flares with a matte black finish for a sleek exterior look.
So this option does offer a half inch of additional wheel and tire coverage in case you did go with a bigger option than the factory and still wanna keep it street legal abiding by the laws and regulations. Now, in addition to that, it was manufactured right here in the USA out of a Dura-Flex 2000 material and is 100% UV treated for long-lasting durability on a daily use. In addition to that, it is also relatively flexible just to bend with the work and trail hazards, of course, you'll be running into in addition to the debris. It is also finished in a matte black powdered coating just to give you that sleek exterior look to blend in with your OEM trim and fit like a factory option would.
As far as the price goes for the Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flare, you can expect to be spending just shy of 500 bucks. Now right off the bat, that does sound pretty pricey, I will agree. But, of course, you wanna take into consideration the price you'd be paying directly from the factory to get a true replacement. This price is probably a little bit sweeter. Now, if you're willing to pay a little bit less, or you're wanting to pay a little bit less, you can pick up an aftermarket replacement, something that isn't exactly an OE style. You can definitely spend less than 500 bucks. But if you're looking for the OE style, expect to be in that price range.
Moving along to the install portion of the video, like I said in the beginning, a simple enough install that does not require any drilling or permanent modifications and will reuse all factory hardware and mounting locations. With that said, the only tools you'll need to get the job done are a ratchet and a very simple socket set. Remove your factory fender flares, if you do have them installed already, and replace them with the OE style fender flares from Bushwacker using the same hardware. Overall, about an hours' worth of time in the driveway at home to complete all four. And, of course, a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter.
And just to wrap things up here. If you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 and you're looking for a factory style replacement for your fender flares, if you're looking to replace the damaged option you may have taken on while doing some work on the road or from hitting the off-roading trails, check out the Bushwacker OE Style Fender Flares which of course can be found right here at americanmuscle.com.
