Hello all, So not sure where these came from but I noticed them when I was about to wash the truck. Can anything be done to get these scuffs out (think its just a scuff)? It only seems to be on the back right fender only and the only thing I may of bumped is a plastic city trash can that was sticking out into the alleyway and I had to make a quick turn in but I mean barely bumped it.

I believe its painted. Its the back right and left fenders. Not 100% where it came from I was just guessing it was the city trash can sitting in the alley but I barely I mean barley bumped it. Could be from Previous owner or on the streets/parking lot/dealership.

Yes, the fender flares are painted. You could repaint or even replace.

If you are lucky enough to be able to drive your Raptor like a Raptor, you’ll eventually develop a nice off-road patina on your truck.

These small issues once bothered me. Now I enjoy the patina:)

Can you catch a finger nail in the scratch more then just feeling it? If not, a good buff should get it out (for the most part) if you can, a wet sand may be needed and it should come mostly out. Its hard to say if itll come fully out without it in front of me lol. GL

Just be cautious on plastic it’s easier to damage while buffing.

Watch our for a scammer working our forum that emailed me off the forum and subsequently called me. (Heavy foreign accent.) He sent me pictures of a set that were still installed on a black truck that I’m sure wasn’t even his. He said he was going to install wider flares and didn’t want to scratch them…… Non refundable wire transfer…… Quoted a shipped price right away….. Burner Wally World cell phone….. You get the idea….. Check out the want to buy section of our forum for details!
