Fender Flares - Black or Factory Color

    I'm having a hard time deciding on black fender flares or factory color. Obviously getting them matched will cost a couple hundred dollars more. Anyone got pictures of a truck that is the same color as mine with black flares?

    Thanks!

    I prefer color matched. I have a set of EGR flairs that I won on the site last spring. I have not put them on because I am waiting to get the money together to get them sprayed. Most places near my home want around $350 to color match them.

    Thanks man. That's the problem I have. Paying $400 for them and then paying someone to paint them.

    I guess it all depends on your color. I have factory black on a white truck. the black is durable not paint. if you paint then they will get beat up. with black this is not an issue especially with rock salt/sand blasting the wheel well areas.

    if your in FLA I would paint to match no issues with road crap.

    They'd look fine black. However, if you choose to leave them back I strongly recommend clear-coating them in order to keep them from fading (getting that white/grey look that faded black plastics get).
