I believe they need holes drilled into the fenders above the wheel well just like the factory ones in the higher trims. I would suggest the OE style flares from Bushwacker. That's what I have and the look great.

I installed Mopar OEM fender flares from a longhorn.

You cannot use the Rebel flares because they will not fit your front fenders of your Bighorn.

I had to remove the clips from the OEM fender tabs and put 3M tape on the tabs, since I do not have the factory holes in my panels.

damn crazy man never would thought to see the rebel ones shorter than the standard 1500 sides.... so QUESTION: are the Longhorn flares textured like the rebels? or smooth matte black and paint ready?

Another option is to buy and install the Bushwacker OE style fender flares. They use the existing holes in your fenders w/o any drilling.

They are smooth matte black.
I am looking for a textured black version OEM preferably not the ones that are attached with weather strip tape , but more like the ones that have the push pin tabs, I can drill the holes for them in the fender
