Default Opinoins needed on MY truck!

Hi guys. I have always thought a sport with the oem fender flares looked sharp. When i see one on the street I do a double take lol. But upon pricing it out I just did not think it was worth the cost. I now have an opportunity to pick up some oem 1500 flares for a very good price, painted blue streak and ready to be installed. But... I am getting cold feet lol. I think what is holding me back is I don't LOVE the front on view since the flares stop half way through the bumper as we all know lol. I am not looking to buy the ones that go all the way to the bottom of the bumper or anything else like that. I am simply asking yay or nay on MY truck. Sorry for the long post and thanks for all input.
here is said truck

^^^ this is sort of how I am feeling about it. They look great on some trucks but im not 100% sure if I would love it on mine. I am just trying to make a decision because another set this price and the color I need is a big opportunity to get them. Thanks again guys.

I would pass. You've got yourself a real clean street truck as is.

If the seller will let you,why don't you try taping them to the truck,then taking a picture of it.
It should help you decide whether you want them or not.

I actually purchased a set and had them painted... I was on the fence like you and ultimately decided not to install them. I think the Sport looks better with the "clean" fender wells. If the truck was lifted with larger tires, then maybe... otherwise, no.

I'm on the fence too on putting them on my truck. I do like the way yours looks. You have the painted bumpers. I have the chrome bumper and they would look better on my truck. If you decide not to put them on, send that guy my way.
