A) Bushwacker only approves installing the ﬂ ares 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: Modiﬁ cations 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 sufﬁ cient to clean the ﬂare. Do not use any harsh abrasive detergents.
