Brother, those black flares bring your truck all together man! Rugged, tough, offroad look is what I get from your whole silver black scheme. They tie into your front bumper beautifully bud! I wouldn't change a thing.

Personally I would color match the flares, bumper, and grille. It just provides a much cleaner look IMO. However if you're leaving the bumper black I'd leave the flares black as well. They tie everything together nicely.

Spray the rear bumper with plastic dip and be done with it. I think your truck looks great with the black bumper and flares, may as well finish the theme.

Yeah I was thinking of doing that or just getting the matching bumper. I might debadge the truck tonight on the back..those door handles seem pretty hard to take off..idk if they come off since they came with the truck or do all chrome door handles just covers? I figured if I painted em black..they would wear easy since you always gotta touch the handles.

Thank you guys for the input..some people to paint the fenders silver some tell me to keep em. Fml

I normally like color match, but on your truck the black looks awesome. I would definitely leave it.

Normally, I am a big proponent of color matching, but with your truck I say leave them!
