STEP 1 – PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
A) Bushwacker only approves installing the flares according to these
written instructions with the hardware provided. WARNING: Failure to
install according to these instructions will invalidate the warranty. This
includes, but is not limited to using alternative installation methods,
hardware, or materials. DO NOT USE: Loctite, SuperGlue, or similar
products on the hardware or the flares.
B) Fit: Verify the fit of the flares to vehicle. (Some filing, sanding, or
cutting may be necessary to ensure proper fit).
C) Painting: (Optional) if paint is desired it must be done prior to installing
flares on vehicle. Clean outer surface with a good grade degreaser.
DO NOT USE LACQUER THINNER OR ENAMEL REDUCER AS A
DEGREASER. Wipe outer surface thoroughly with a tack rag prior to
paint. Application of plastic adhesion promoter for ABS plastic as per
your paint system manufacturer’s recommendations is required. Paint
flares using a high quality enamel, or polyurethane automotive paint. If
painting edge trim (not recommended), use a flex additive.
D) Performance: Using larger Tires may increase the area required to
turn the vehicle. Some Tire/Rim combinations may require lowering
bump stops and or installing steering stops to prevent tire from
contacting flare.
E) Exhaust System: Modifications may be necessary to maintain a
minimum 4” clearance between flares and exhaust pipes. (Exhaust
gases should not vent directly onto flares)
F) Metal Protection: All exposed fasteners and bare metal should be
treated with rust resistant paint BEFORE installing flares. Spray inner
fender wells with undercoating AFTER flare attachments have been
completed.
G) Decals: Flares may interfere with existing decals on vehicle. If you
wish, remove decals prior to installation of flares.
H) Care & Cleaning: Bushwacker fender flares are built to last; any
detergent you use to wash your vehicle is sufficient to clean the flare.
Do not use any harsh abrasive detergents.

STEP 2 - EDGE TRIM INSTALLATION
The edge trim for this application is double-tape edge trim so
special care needs to be taken while installing. There is red vinyl
backing on the inside of the edge trim where it will adhere to the
flare and red vinyl backing on the outside where it will adhere to the
vehicle. The following steps only concern where the edge trim will
adhere to the flare. Additional edge trim installation instructions are
included during the rest of the installation process.
A. Peel two to three inches of red vinyl backing away from edge trim
tape. Applying the adhesive side of the edge trim to the inner side of
the flare, affix the edge trim to the top edge of the flare (the portion
that comes in contact with the vehicle). Stop at tube feature of flare.

Reinstall the splash shield, in preparation for marking
before cutting, using supplied 1.25” Washer on
factory bolt/washer assembly and reinstall through
factory threads in sheet metal (2 locations).
Mark the front portion of the splash shield with a grease
pencil in location shown in preparation for trimming.
The splash shield should be flush with the sheet metal
after being trimmed. NOTE: If trimmed too little, flare
won’t fit; if trimmed to much, shield won’t stay behind
flare.

Use one supplied alcohol prep pad to clean the sheet
metal above each inner piece in preparation to tape
the edge trim to the sheet metal. This must be done
for proper flare installation.

wires by attaching the male connectors to the female
connectors. Test the connection by turning on the
front marker/parking lights. Switch connectors if
necessary.

up the speed clips with the outer flare holes (7
locations). If needed, use a flashlight to better locate
the speed clips.
46
Press
Firmly
Hold flare in place on fender and start a pan head
screw into each hole location and through speed clip
on inner structure and metal frame angle support
bracket (7 places). Do not tighten.

47
Peel outer tape liner from the double-tape edge
trim. Push down lightly on the fender flare to create
a small gap between the sheet metal and the edge
trim. This makes it easier to pull the red liner.
48
After the red liner is removed, firmly press the flare
toward the vehicle for 10 seconds to adhere the tape to
the vehicle surface. Repeat this process for the entire
length of the flare. The vehicle surface temperature
must be between 65-110° F for proper adhesion. Allow
24 hours for full adhesion.
49
Starting at one end, use the flat edge of the supplied
edge trim tool to further adhere the edge trim to the
vehicle surface. Slide the tool along the edge trim
while pressing it in toward the vehicle surface.
50
Use the hooked end of the edge trim tool to check for
full adhesion. Do this by sliding it along the top of the
edge trim to visually verify that the tape is adhered to
the vehicle surface. Repeat step 49 if tape is not fully
adhered to the vehicle surface.
51
Attach one side reflex reflector to the side of the
vehicle by peeling off the adhesive backing and
pressing it firmly onto the cleaned vehicle surface.
NOTE: Once reflector has adhered it cannot be
repositioned.
52
Completed front driver’s side flare installation.
