I called the dealer I do business with the other day and we have the VIN # and my name matched on a work order and when the metals come in he is going to call me and we will make an appointment to do it all in one day. I live over 2 hours away and don't want it to turn into a multi-day project.

I really can't justify installing anything else but the recall parts. Once the 3 years warranty is out, that could be a different story...MD

I don't like all the rivets but it does cover the entire wheel well. I also got a new driver side floor board installed

In order to make it work you're going to have to cut the floorboard on the inside and the metal panel on the outside and fabricated down either read it or weld it back together it will not fit 30" tires without rubbing

God you have to love speak to text. Rivet or weld. But they are sturdy

With 30s peels off like nothing(drivers side anyway didn't get to passenger side). Don't really like the way this is designed. Pretty mickey mouse drilling the frame(rivets). In my opinion not a good thing. Too bad they could come up with a better fix.
