If possible I'd spend the money and paint 'em, IMO it looks much better. I tried a set of smooth Bushwackers in black on my truck at first and just didn't like the black at all, so I sold 'em and bought a set of pocket flares and had them painted to match. I've gotten far more compliments on the painted ones!

I got the OEM flares for mine. They came grey so I had them colour matched.

Thanks guys.

-Upstater i dont mind the black smooth flares with your wheels you had on!
Assault nice looking truck!

I decided i have my heart set on pocket hole ones, i may order them and put them up against my truck black, and if i dont like the look take them and get them painted orange.

any suggestions on where to buy from for the best buck?

I installed a set of OEM 3500 Laramie flares on my 1500 sport. Found them used for cheap and had them paint matched. I wasnt a fan of how the 1500 flares terminated on the sport bumper, and I didn't want to run the Bushwacker pocket flares since they would stick out too far for my wheel offset.
