Dodge Ram 1500 Fender Flares
How to Maintain Your Dodge Ram 1500 Fender Flares
Pick-up trucks are designed to go through different terrains, often gaining mud and dirt along the way. With modified trucks, things can get a little messier with bigger wider tires. When these tires roll on the wet ground, mud and debris are thrown out behind. One way of minimizing these from being spewed upward is by installing fender flares. Not only does fender flares contain these particles within their area, they also add extra appeal to your truck. This is also the case for Chrysler's entry to the full-size pick-up truck segment. The Dodge Ram 1500 is a muscular beast of burden that enjoys providing utilitarian service as well as added macho appeal. Here are some tips on how to maintain your Dodge Ram 1500 fender flares.
- Avoid running into terrains full of debris that can damage your fender flares.
This is counterintuitive. But if you can avoid driving through roads that are filled with debris that can be thrown into your vehicle, do so. This lessens the instances where your flares suffer from countless rocks being spewed out by your spinning wheels. Less scratch means more protective coating left on your flares' surface. The more they stay intact, the more they will last you a good number of years.
- Check the fender flare mounts regularly.
The fender flares are added extensions to your truck. They are not molded into the truck from the main body cast. So it is best that you continually check if the fender flares are still securely bolted to your truck's body.
- Rinse, scrub, and rinse again.
As part of your truck, you have to include the fender flares whenever you wash your Dodge Ram 1500. You start off with directing a steady stream of water to loosen all dirt and grime attached to your truck. After the initial rinsing, you scrub the fender flares with a sponge soaked in a car shampoo mixture. Use a brush dipped in the similar solution to scrub off hard to reach areas plagued with grime. Once done, rinse the fender flares with a steady stream of clean water again. Wipe off to dry.
