Default Fender flares/mud flaps

I saw an older Edge today (sorry I don't know what years they were made) it looked good so probably wasn't too old. Anyway it had what looked to be integrated mudflaps and flares.If not they definitely matched paint and fit together like a glove. It was a great look. Was that a Ford acc or an after market deal? While I'm at it does anyone know off hand if the 2010 XLT can trade parts with other years?

Default Re: Fender flares/mud flaps

the integrated flap/flare are horrid. Those are found on 98-00 trucks. You remove the flaps, you've got an ugly hole in the flare. The flares you want(if you really want flares, I effin' HATE having them!!) are the 01-05 flares. There's a notch on the bottom side that the flap sorta sticks out of. They look really nice compared to the 98-02, plus the updated design of them looks amazing. The Edge you saw probably had them.

Here's some pics...

01-05 Edge...

same flare, but textured and grey/black but showing the flaps this time...(01-05 XLT)

Here's the 98-00 integrated flap/flare. Notice the different and sorta odd look to them and they're bodyline...

All shown above are factory installed items.

LOTS of parts from 98+ will fit a 2010. The only thing sorta iffy at the moment is the rear lift and lower suspension components. Seats you're SOL. Thank you Fed side airbag mandate...
