I just got mine from gmparts and they fit ok but not perfect, so I just wanted to see from different angles other peoples fender flares to see how the compare.

Ill try and get pics of mine tomorrow when there is some light.

Oh btw the way these are the front fender flares Im talkign about and the part where the crease is in the fender towards the door.

No pics right now but mine came installed from the factory and have a wider gap towards the bottom of the crease. Most of the ones I've seen are like that...

My factory ones were rubbing on the bottom of the crease right from the factory...wore right through the paint. If I had kept them, I would've sanded down that spot, colormatched and reinstalled.

I filed mine down a little bit in the area where they touched the body, as the part that went in the bodyline was pushing the flare away from the body. They're *VERY* soft, a few turns of a file was enough. I took mine off over this though...but if I had a Silverado I'd've kept them....I'm ambivalent over the look on Sierras, but on 03+ Silvs I love them.

Most wont fit perfect. The flares are mass produced so as the trucks temselves. minior misfits are normal and should be expected... just like everything that is mass produced

My cousin is fucking worthless and most friends live 15-20 miles away so I doubt none will come to hold my fender flares....OH well the only ones I have left to do are the rear ones, cause they arent here yet. Tracking says they wont be here til tomorrow.
So right now I just have the two front flares on :D
