Review & Install Video
What's going on guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com and this is my quick review and install of the Putco Stainless Steel Fender Trim fitting the 2015 and 2016 F-150. So in this video, I'm going to talk about the construction and materials used with this fender trim as well as we'll get on the installation a little bit later on in the video. But right off the bat, I'm going to be giving these a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have these on your truck in about 30 minutes to an hour tops.
So these are going to be for the truck owner that's looking to enhance the sides of their truck with something that's a little bit more custom and unique, but not of a plastic ABS fender flair. Now these are also going to be great for enhancing the lines on your truck, as well as complementing some of the other chrome trim that's on your F-150. Now I do want to add guys, that while these are made up of stainless steel and will be tough, I would not personally rely on them for heavy duty off-roading protection, and I would definitely take a look at some of the other options on site for something that's going to be made out of a plastic ABS material.
Now taking a look at the construction here guys, we're going to see that Putco has these made up of a very heavy duty, stainless steel T304 that's going to be polished to a high mirror shine. Again, in my opinion, this meshes very well with some of the OEM trim that's on the F-150s and compliments each other very nicely. So not only are these going to look good guys, but they're going to perform for a lifetime as these are going to be backed by Putco's Never Rust lifetime warranty.
Now this is a huge selling point in my opinion, as if you're going to be paying for something like this, you're definitely gonna wanna have that in the back of your pocket, knowing that these are gonna hold up over time to any type of exposure to the elements. All right guys, so just to hit this again here, Putco is not only going to have this comprised of a heavy duty product that's going to be finished for a show winning look, but they're also going to outfit these with a heavy duty rubberized seal. Now this is not only because of ultraviolet rays, but as well as to ensure that you're going to have a custom perfect fit on your F-150.
One last thing I definitely like here in my opinion guys, is that the hardware that's going to be supplied with this kit is going to be comprised of stainless steel, so you can rest easy knowing that this is going to last a lifetime on your truck and insure that these are going to stay on there where they belong.
All right guys, so taking a look at the installation here, just like I had said at the beginning of the video, we're going to be looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have these on your truck in about one hour tops. So the installation alone here guys, is going to be a very huge selling point for me as this is going to be a bolt on install, even if you could call it that. No drilling, cutting, or any type of modification to your brand new truck is going to be required here. These are essentially going to install with the supplied stainless steel hardware that comes from Putco. You're going to attach the tabs and then affix them on your truck and you're good to go.
All right guys, just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from Putco, not only based on the fact that their installation is going to be a no brainer, these are going to be aggressively priced, but for the fact that you're going to be adding some mild protection to the sides of your truck, and having a unique and custom look that's not like that of every other truck you're gonna see on your day to day commute. So that's my review and install for the Putco Stainless Steel Fender Trim fitting the 2015 and 2016 F-150, right here at AmericanMuscle.com
