I think the pocket style flares look good on a truck that looks aggresive. WhT i mean is big tires liftes a bit and rims with a negative offset bringing the tires out. The smooth ones look good on a stock style truck. Putting the pocket style on a atock looking truck really clashes the two styles i think. Really it ia up to the truck owner and what they like.

I like the smooth look as well. I think they would have looked better if you had them painted like the pocket style flares. Don't get me wrong though, both look good. Definitely go painted though, whichever you choose.

Does anybody else wish bushwaker (the pocket style) would finish the front flare. I was going to order after seeing on a sport but then realized doesnt have little section (after headlight line) for a laramie no offense to anyone but without that little piece looks unfinished. I was going to order but not going to cause of that. is there a company like the pocket style that goes all the way to bumper? Dodge factory does but like the pocket style

Must be a 4th Gen issue, mine goes all the way down to the fender in the front.

What do you think? Leave them black or painted to match the truck?

I installed the Bushwacker pocket style and they went on exactly as described, however there are a couple of places where they don't snug up against the truck body....what gives? They are definately the correct part number and product for the truck. Any ideas?
