pry em off, your not gonna bend the fender, as far as paint, i think all you'll need to do is buff it out, maybe adhesive remover.

Get those fuckers off :imo

If there glued, use a heat gun (or blowdryer)and melt the glue, then take them off real easy. After there off, you will need to get the excess glue off with some sort of cleaner. Good Luck

i remove these at work sometimes. sometimes the paint is scarred under them. just take them off, and if it doesnt look right you can always just put them back on.

It really depends on how long they have been on your truck and the conditions the truck has been exposed to. If the paint is just a little hazy under it buff it out with some 3m adhesive remover. If its messed up too bad your best bet is to just put them back on and deal with it until you can get the truck repainted in the future.

www.photobucket.com says that you can only register between 10am and 2pm. no luck.
Well that sucks, I hope they don't keep screwing up or else we'll have to find another hosting site.

You can email them to someone till you can get a photobucket account setup mines [email protected] or I'm sure someone else would be glad to do it as well.

EDIT: Like Kyle :lol:

what i was trying to say is that if the flares didnt have enough tape on the back the metal will actually scratch into the paint. even without the flares, you can still see the edge where they were, sometimes down to the metal.
