Plastic.... black.... flexible... :)
Truth be told, I was never impressed with their flare-to-body system. They
use a rubber gasket that you put around the flare, and it just presses up
against the body. The problem is, the flare moves, and scuffs the paint.
You don't notice it until/if you take the flares off, but then it's pretty
ugly. I solved that problem on my '99 by running a thin bead of black
silicone (black truck) around the gasket. But - then I had a bunch of
silicone that I would have had to remove had I ever taken them off.
The Warns, I believe, use 3M sticky-stuff<tm> to adhere the top of the flare
to the body, greatly reducing flare-to-body rubbing. On the down side, the
Warns don't give as much coverage as the Bushwackers.

you line the top of your tailgate with this stuff to keep the topper door
from rubbing your paint. (or all the way around the bed on a over the rail
