I need to do something since the toyo's on the truck are tearing up the paint on the lower bed on both sides which will be fixed this spring but I want to keep it from happening again...any info or pics of anyone who runs them would be great..I have been looking at www.atsdesign.com
Thank you,

I think those would look great. Have you seen the bushwackers?? They have 5 different styles.
I was wondering if anyone knew if the factory flares from the new 05-06 super dutys would fit on a 04 F250?

you're right, the fenders and beds are exactly the same from 99-07, so they'll all interchange.

Yeah me also.. I am wanting the pocket flares from bushwacker though since they give more coverage and would help prevent my whole truck from being covered in mud http://www.bushwacker.com/fender.asp...&search=Search I really prefer the cut-outs... but that is just a little too much for me...

the issue I see with flares is the perfect spot for salt residue to hide in. In Michigan they use enough to make the roads white at times.
Ask Kevin (bigdraft) about rust under the flares.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

TRUE....This is why I believe I would use double sided tape instead of the rubber gasket. To keep salt out and from the rubber rubbing the paint off...

I can get some good old Navy Green primer. We use that stuff in the bilge that holds salt water. oil and other crap. So no rust could happen.

Aaron, I like the cut out by Bushwacker also. I may need them for mine with the 3inches of tire that hangs out on each side.

I would say the salt concern is a valid one...my buddys dad use to have them on his 97 f-350 he would take them off every other week and clean behind them...i dont know all i know is right now the bottoms on my bed are taking a beating!
