I put the Mopar flares on mine and had them color matched. I think they turned out great and do keep some of the road crap off the sides. Here's a pic.

i went with the BUSHWACKER fender flares & i really like them, they make 3 kinds, flat look almost like stock, but, don't harm the paint

in the last image, you will see the piece that comes in the package for those with metal bumpers, i just taped it up near the headlight to show that it would go in that general area

being yours is white, i would paint them, either a shade of white or light grey

Mopar brand with Sanding and color matched paint. Or EGR oe style if you want a little another half inch of coverage but still look similar to factory.

i would suggest color matching them also and what i find with the factory ones is that they dont stick out quite enough but they are still nice dont get me wrong
