Unless they came with a bracket, youll probably have to make some for the rear because like earlier said, the torx bolts in the rear are recessed back into the liner. They probably dont drill the holes because they are probably used on a variety of different models.

From the looks of the instructions I would say that you don't use the current mounting bolts at all but drill all new holes for the flaps.

yeah, the wheelbase in the rear is hollow, unlike the front where there is already a place to mount it, I believe, where there are 4 screws holding it in. As far as I can tell just gotta take the screws out and drill/screw in the mudflaps up front. I won't have time until this weekend to get a better look, but yeah it looks like it's gonna take some creativity to get these puppies on the rear wheelbase. I'm not sure why FORD doesn't have model specific instructions - annoying.

Yeah,cut the back ones a bit shorter since they look like truck flaps almost scraping the ground but they look like they cover the fronts better than the OEM ones do.

Cut them MUCH shorter and cut the bottom corners so they are rounded. Those look......................awkward - to say the least.

There are numerous screw/tapped locations behind the felt inner well. You can drill through it and mount to some of those. Just an FYI
