Default Flares or no Flares?

Was thinking of going with some black oem style flares, or color matched or no flares at all. Let me know what you guys think thanks!

Take the running boards off and leave it as is.

I vote for the OEM 2500 flares paint matched. Those look nice and clean and go with the our trucks really well in my opinion. Even the pocket style looks good if you have the right stance for it. But I would definately get them paint matched whichever you choose. Truck looks great man!

This ^^^^ !!! Would make it look a lot better and even higher. With your offset I wouldn't to flares plus I like the clean look without them better. But if you are going to put flares on go with the 2500 flares for sure!

With that offset, I change my vote to flares as you're tires are obviously sticking out noticeably.

I'll stick with eliminating the running boards.

What is the difference between the 1500 & 2500 factory flares?
