Default PollL Fender Flares or not?

not to step on the on the other flare thread.

Simple as it gets.
Yes, No, or only with a lift.

Myself, I love the subtle flares on stock trucks. IMO the stock flares on the laramie, longhorn and the outdoorsman are some of the best looking ones on the market.

big monster flares only belong on trucks with big, monster wheels.

I agree with this completely!

But I will add do it... if you're going to put pocket flares on, you need a wide stance as well. Having pocket flares with wheels/tires that are tucked 2" inside of them looks ridiculous!! A lift definitely helps make pocket flares look better as well.

Thanks!
Don't know yet. There is a rubber gasket between the flares and the truck so hopefully not too much. There is one loose spot that I need to fix but I'm waiting till it warms up outside.
