Just unscrew a couple of screws around the fender lip, and it's off. ;)

Whoa, I didn't read your entire post...
Line-X your flairs?
why?
You will need to mask the area to be able to fit the rubber trim back on. Line-X
adds significant thickness depending on how they apply it.
So it would be easier to leave the rubber on and mask over it. I would discuss it
with the Line-X installer, and see what the end result would look like.

The rubber trim keeps the flairs from grinding into the paint.
Maybe you Line-X your rockers with the flairs removed, then put sprayed flairs on over it.
The original mtg. screw holes probably won't line up anymore...

Search the forum for Line-X, there are pic's of other guy's rigs that have done the rockers.

i am having my rockers and bed done and the guy said we could do the flares too. would it be a good idea or not? he said we would have to cover the whole flare minus the rubber trim so the line x don't peel

It would be a good idea to remove your flares and have it sprayed underneath-where they touch the body. When I removed mine to do the rockers w/DuraBac it was already wearing through the paint at 4000 miles. JMO
