    Those flaps will match your truck nicely. I took a look at their manufacturer's website and these appear to be ones that you either have to drill or use self-threading screws, which is probably the best way to mount them. Over many different vehicles and several sets of mudflaps, I've always screwed them directly to the metal and have never lost one; which actually now that I think about it is pretty fortunate, since I off-road quite a bit.

    No worries, I went to the website "provendesignproducts.com" anyway, as the main sites may contain more info than someone offering it up on ebay. I used a center punch first to place a small dent exactly where I wanted to drill the hole and then drilled. Even if they come with self-threading screws, I'd recommend drilling a hole first, as the self-threading screws tend to drift before they catch.
