Hey, guys. It's Sara with americantrucks.com, and today we have review and install of the RedRock 4x4 Pocket Style Fender Flares, fitting your '19 and newer RAM 1500 models. These flares are perfect for the RAM owner who's looking to add some rugged off-road style and a bit of protection to their truck without breaking the bank. These pocket style fender flares feature polypropylene construction with a UV resistant black finish that you can leave as is or paint to match your truck. These flares add about 3 inches of width to give you more coverage for your wheels and tires. So, if you are running wider wheels and tires, they will get you more coverage to help you stay street legal and add some protection against rock chips as well. They are sold as a set of four and come with all mounting hardware included.So, as far as the price goes these come in at around $200, making them one of the most budget-friendly options you can choose for your RAM. And for your money you're getting both style and protection while saving some money over more expensive options.So, as far as the install goes, I'm giving this one a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It features a direct bolt-on installation that can be done within two hours. So, with that said, let's check out our install.For this install you will need an impact gun or a ratchet will work just fine, a T45 Torx socket or Torx bit, a Phillips head screwdriver or a Philips bit, an 8-millimeter socket, a 13-millimeter wrench and a pair of scissors or a knife.All right, so the first step before we can install these flares is to install these bolts in each of the pockets. Now to do this, we're just gonna insert it into the opening and grab a washer and a nut for the backside. Now that nut is a 13-millimeter, so we're gonna grab a 13-millimeter wrench to hold it in place. And the top is a T45 Torx bolt. So, we're gonna use a small impact gun here, you can definitely use a ratchet instead. You don't need to overtighten, we're just doing this for speed. Repeat that process with the rest of the bolts.All right, now we're going to install the weatherstripping along the outside of the flare. What you want to do is open it up a little bit and peel back this covering on the double-sided adhesive. Very carefully, we're just gonna place it on the edge of the flare. Make sure it's fully over the top and stick down the backside. Go ahead and work this down the length of the flare. The corners might be a little difficult and if you don't like how they're sitting you can cut them and make two pieces out of it. As you push it down, make sure the back part is sticking as well. We're peeling back the adhesive as we go so we're not exposing too much of it so it doesn't stick before we're ready. Make sure you're molding to every crease. There's an indent here to match your body line. Make sure you're following that indent so it has a nice, smooth surface to sit on. All right, now once you've reached the end, with a pair of scissors or you can use a razor knife, mark where you wanna cut and slice off the end of the weatherstripping. You may have to go back and re-stick some of this as well, depending on how you cut it.All right, so the last step before we can install these on the truck is to repeat that process on the rear flare. So, let's go ahead and install our bolts. All right, now we're gonna install the weatherstripping in the same way that we did the front, pressing it into place and making sure the adhesive attaches to the back of the flare. Now, again, if you don't wanna make this tight corner with the adhesive, and you'd rather cut it and turn this into two pieces instead of one continuous piece, you're definitely welcome to do that. All right, and when you come to the end, grab your scissors or razor knife and slice off the weatherstripping at that point.All right, so at this point, we're gonna remove all the 8-millimeter bolts that hold on our wheel well liner. Grab an 8-millimeter socket and a ratchet and let's get these out. And we're also gonna remove the two bolts that hold on this small mud flap here. We will not be able to reuse this with our new flares. Once the bolts are out of this piece, there are two plastic clips under the bottom here. You're just gonna grab and pull it out towards you. All right, with all the bolts removed, you can hold up the fender flare to the truck. And, we're gonna go for one of these top bolts first to help hold it in place. Line up the bolts with the hole in the flare as well as the truck. Go ahead and thread it in place by hand. Install the rest of your factory hardware. All right, now with your 8-millimeter socket, go ahead and tighten those down. All right, now we're gonna do the same thing for the rear of the truck. There's four bolts that we have to remove at the front of the wheel well and four bolts at the back. So, let's get those out.All right, now we do have to remove this trim piece down here. So, remove the 8-millimeter bolt that's holding it on. Once you have the bolt out of the front, there are a few pop clips on here, they're facing this direction so you'll need to pull towards the front of the truck to disengage them. Now you can remove the rest of the 8-millimeter bolts. All right, now you can remove this trim piece off as well and you need to pull towards you to release the clips on the bottom. Okay, so next before we install the flare, we do need to install these metal clips on the openings at the top of the wheel well that don't have fender liner. Make sure they're lined up with the holes in the actual wheel well itself. And now we can install the flare. Line up the flare on the truck. We're gonna start with the topmost mounting point. Grab one of the included screws, we're going for that top clip that we just installed. Now we can look for the mounting points on either side.Now we can reinstall the rest of the factory hardware towards the bottom of our flares. All right, so the first thing we're going to tighten are the top three bolts that we installed. Grab a Phillips head screwdriver or a Phillips head bit and we'll go ahead and tighten these down. Keep in mind we are going into plastic, so you do not need to overtighten these. Now, you can grab your 8-millimeter socket and tighten down the rest of your bolts.All right, so that is gonna do it for the review and install of our fender flares.
