This is an 07 sport 4door 4x4. I originally removed the decal but I've also painted it since. Not positive but I think they have sticky tape on the underside and it screws to the underside wheel well area but I want to look so I dont give bad info. It's dark now.

Now that you mention it the EDGE Flares are secured under the lip with screws.

I wonder how the rear EDGE Flares will look on the Steppie ?

Was it this one? I don't remember who owns it but it is a flareside with bushwhacker extend-a-fenders.

Thanks for the picture of the Stepside with Flares.

Tires look to me to be 33" but just looking a the picture.
The flares are to big, especially for the rear Steppie Fenders, they go too high.



The EDGE Flares are narrower, picture below, and I'm thinking will look ok but not sure yet !
If I had left the Styleside Bed on but still thinking on the Steppie Bed !
The problem other than looks, is the mounting holes, there are a lot of them.
Anyone who is or knows a Ford Mechanic who knows of a templet for the holes for the EDGE Flares, please get me a part number or a Web Location for the PDF !



Got to the Web and looked for Rangers with Stepside Flares, there are a lot of Steppies out there with Flares but not all look good to me !
Below is a picture of an Extended Cab with Steppie and EDGE Flares and it doesn't look too bad, maybe its the color matching !
So, when and IF I can get a method of attaching the flares or I can find a good body shop in SoCal to get it done, REASONABLY, then I might just do it.

bushwhackers waaaayyy toooooo wide yuck. Might be better for Iceland truck or full widths
I like the blue truck, looks clean
Jury still out on this one, "steppie" (that's what I call them now)looks too busy w flares added on
I will always prefer fiberglass/ or pulled bedsides on a ranger for tire coverage :) but glass can be expensive!!

I have some old James Duff fender flares I got for my BII because rear fiberglass on a BII looks like ass
I never installed them now I am thinking of putting them on

I do like the FX4 Rims, wish I could find some in decent condition.
There is a store to widen them too.

The same way. But where the fake bolts are the level 2/sport flares I used stainless steel screws
I didn't think there would be enough room for Screws.
Just takes some time to get use to them.

Maybe on the Steppie you could section the rear fenders 

!

Scrambler82, you can take one of the Edge flares, put short, sharpened (bench grinder) roofing nails into the mounting holes where the little christmas tree fasteners go, secure with a very small amount of hot-glue. Then use the Edge flare with nails to transfer holes to paper to make your hole template. While the template is still pierced by the nails, trim the paper template to fit along the top outside edge of the flare as accurately as possible. Remove the nails and lay the Edge flare on to the bedside, and mark (pencil, marker, etc) around the outside of the flare while pushing firmly upward on it, into the wheel well. Then lay the new template on the bedside to mark your hole locations, while lining up with the outer/top marks you made earlier. Your hole locations should end up very accurate this way.

Kinda hard to get the point across in words..

B76M,

A good suggestion, I might try it when I get there, thanks.

I'm wondering if sectioning the rear Fenders is a good option ?
