    I would definately put some fender flares on your truck, it changes the whole look of the truck. Bushwacker makes some very good looking fender flares, and they come in various styles and prices. They have cut-out flares, pocket flares with the stainless bolt heads for appearance and they all come in matte finish or you can paint them to match. They are expensive though, they go from $250-$499 per set of two. Hope this helps out a little,..............AMY

    Cool fender flares

    I have factory black texture flairs on my 05 Z-71. I plan on changing to buchwhacker with smooth painted finish so I dont have to worry about wax on the texture flairs.

    Has anyone put flares on a 2WD? How would that look? I have thought about putting them on my 1988 Silverado 2500 after I lift it 2 inches in the front to level it out...
