Yes. thanks, I've done that and as you say, the viewing angle kind of skews any measurement and it is just kind of "eyeballing".
Using a micrometer from the inner fender edge before and after would give a more accurate measurement. Right now, it seems like closer to between 0.704" and 0.726" rather than 1/2". The inner fender edge is not exactly uniform in width on any one fender nor at any one point. And the front flares may be different than the rear. I haven't done the front yet so we will see.
And I was looking for the same protection points you are. Just to protect the fender lip from stone and gravel dings as well as fender edge dings from careless parking lot denizen door openers. I park well away from others all the way across a any parking lot and when i come out of a store or business, wouldn't you know someone seems to think parking right next to my truck is the best place in spite of score of empty parking slots.
