Bushwacker Flares on Ford E-350 2 WD

Hi,

Has anybody installed Bushwacker Flares on a 2 wheeldrive E-350? I am curious how the van will look without lifting it or only lifting it slightly (i.e. 2 inches). I would like to get wider tires and flares but because of my parking situation I can't raise the height of the van. Photos would be appreciated.

Thanks,

No expert here, but you'll have to match the tire size to the lift. On my pickup I went with a larger and wider tire than I was normally running which was well over stock. Twice I ripped off one of the front bushwackers in a tight turn driving into a rut. I went back to the original tire size that I originally was using to prevent this. Rim offset is also a factor. The style of mud flair I was using was a hard plastic and more prone to break; a soft rubber type flair might not be as much of a problem. Good Luck.

I have ATS flares. Van is not lifted except for about an inch due to heavier rated coil springs (4400 I think... whatever is the next step down from 4600).

Running 265/70R17 in the front (235s in the rear since its a dually). Tires fit fine, but there is not enough space for tire chains when turning. I trimmed the fenders near the door before installing the flares. Before next winter, I'll trim the inside of fender flares too (outside of fender flares will not need altering).
