    I recently installed super atv fender flares on the grizz. I installed them by myself, and went pretty good, but will admit it would be a little easier to have another person to help hold them for marking out the holes for drilling. These are my favorite style fender flares you can get in my opinion. The only thing I don't like about the flares is the supplied bolts. They have already rusted, and I don't like how they look from that. I might go out and buy some stainless bolts and replace the current ones. I have always liked the way accessories that are black look with stainless hardware. I do like the way the grizz looks with the flares down, I'm just the type that now notices the rusty bolts, and it bugs me lol.

    Tips for the install: What I did was have a sharpie with me, I lined up the flares the way I wanted them to be and marked only one hole to do. I than drilled that hole, and used the hardware in that one hole to help hold the flares in place to mark the rest of the holes to be drilled. This seemed to work very well for me.

    here are few pics:

    I bought a set of fender flares from there for the Rhino and I used stainless hardware from McMaster Carr so that I did not have the rust issue, just a small tip on that use some never seize when you use a stainless bolt with a stainless nut, prevents gaulling! They look very similar to OEM, probably at half the cost!

    The rusty bolts used to bug me too, so I swapped them out for stainless and they are still shining today!
