I can't decide between the Bushwacker Pocket style or the Extend A Fenders. Would really like to see the 2 different models installed, can anyone help?

I tried both on my truck and didn't like the extend-a-fenders, so I sold them and installed the pocket flares (painted). The extend-a-fenders also ended at what looked like a weird spot in the front...

The extend a fenders aren't as wide as the pocket style flares but you probably already know that. I like the smoother extend a fenders but if I had a lot of tire and wheel outside the wheelwell, I'd go with the flare that will cover that.

Good luck with your choice!

Is it a pain to clean the pocket style with all those fake bolt holes in the flares?

Upstater, this is the first time I saw your truck with the new flares. Good work, those look really good painted to match.

Thanks! I just wasn't a fan of the black ones on the truck, plus I like the pocket flares better. I tried the smooth ones because the truck is sort of "blingy" with the wheels and chrome and I didn't want to try making it look like a serious off-roader, but it turns out I still like the pocket flares better.

Just ordered the pocket style ones, has anyone tried to plastic-kote them?

I have flares on my truck from ERG, they are just like the Bushwacker Pocket style. I painted my bolts red to match my truck and left the flares black. I like they way they look on mine and a bunch of other people here at the base have installed the same on there trucks as well.
