    Hello all. I'm wanting to put a set of flares on my 98 2500 and I'm wondering what brand people have liked. I'm leaning towards Bushwacker brand flares, but I'm willing to use other brands. Also do some of the brands/models extend over the front edge of the door? Thank you!

    Ebay brand. For as cheap as they were, they fit great.

    The ebay brands or non bushwacker brands will fit the same but for much less cost.

    The low profile fenders are just a bolt on right? I've had the bushwackers cutout pockets on my XJ before that required cutting metal to get em to fit but also gave much more clearance for the tire. The low profiles are just asthetic (with extra width to cover wider tires?)

    Pretty much. I went ebay for mine and you get what you pay for. Mine required sheet metal screws because they weren't a perfect fit and the 3m tape was shitty. They even included the screws because they know. I didn't give any F***s though because 3 of my 4 fenders are rotted to holy hell anyways
