    I may have just got my hands on a set of 2008 textured fx4 fender flares, and I want to make sure that they will be a direct swap with my 2001 fender flares. I have the styleside EDGE ranger, so I obviously have the factory flares and holes.

    Will it be a direct swap?

    Thanks Guys!

    itll be bolt on making you drill holes like putting bush wackers on. The stock flares on your truck pop in lower on the fender then the newer flares that your talking about if Im not mistaken.

    Just get plugs and plug factory holes then drill new holes clean them put a little bit of oil or paint around the holes (to prevent rust) then bolt up.

    shouldnt be too difficult to do if its not bolt on.
