Fender Flares on Silverado - Factory Option?
Hey guys, I've seen quite a few Silverado's like mine that have fender flares. Was this a separate option or did it come with a certain package? Thought it just came on Z71's but my buddies truck is a Z71 and it doesn't have them?2004 Silverado 1500 4X4 Extended Cab, Short Bed LS 4.8L Auto

Some did get them from at least the dealer, as I also know people who would never put something like that on their trucks with them on there. It makes them look tough, though. Thinking of getting some for mine.2005 Chevy Silverado W/T

You used to have plastic fender flares on the older Z71s but you don't get any sort of extended fender flares on the NBS (07-11) trucks... Z71 or not. Like BigBomber mentioend, they're a great aftermarket add-on and I know several people who have had it done. Most people have them color matched so they add a more aggressive look but still look almost stock. In my opinion, they're a must if you're going to go with a wider tire. Otherwise you look like a lowrider out of the early 90's with wheels that extend 4 inches out of your wheel wells. But that's just my opinion. Either way, they add a nice look with all of those bolt inlets. As Jimmeh said, some dealers MAY install them pre-sale but I'm pretty sure that GM doesn't install them factory. I personally have never seen a NBS truck at the dealership (that wasn't used) that had fender flares.

The O.P.'s signature says he has an '04, so I'm guessing he's not asking about NNBS trucks. Fender flares were a factory option on the NBS trucks, '99-'07 Classic, my '05 had them on originally but I took them off.Adam

the flare were a factory option, textured black form 99-05 and paint to match or textured black for the 05-07 classic, weve replaced a lot of them at work, it just a few x-mas tree clips in the wheel opening and 2 sided tape around the edge03 Silverado 1500
