    Im looking to purchase a 2006 Suburban that is mint. My only problem with the truck is I want to remove the factory fender flares that are on the vehicle. My question is how hard is it to remove them? Are they only held on with screws around the wheel wells, or is there some adhesive that will damage the paint if I try to pull them off? Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks again.

    They are held on with the plastic push pin type clips around the fender lip and 2 sided adhesive on the body panels. Very easy to remove, takes a little longer to clean up the paint underneath. I used goo-gone to remove the adhesive and then used a polishing compound to clean up the paint after. One of the best mods I ever did.
