    Camburg Fox factory 2.5" lift Xd monsters with 295/70/18 nitto terra graplerrs Corsa cat back Weather tech liners Wet okole covers
    So after putting on the rims I got from @Sean266 and the 35x12.50's bfg's the are a little wider than I was thinking. So I need some suggestions on flares that look good cause I can't seem to find any I like or should I just go with some glass fenders and bedsides? I really don't know much about the fiberglass stuff so that's where I'm looking for the opinions mostly. Will they last as far as a everyday truck Like the paint fading and such? Is it a reliable option vs the flares? Do I color match them or make them a different color so they stand out? Give me some ideas!! Please and thank you!!

    That's how far they are out in the rear. Haven't measured anything yet but guessing 2 1/2-3" out. I really like this look but color is way different but you get the idea.

    I personally like the bulge fenders like that raptor has if they would be painted to match. carid.com has them cheap but no rear option, dont know how itd look with fender flares bolted on the bedsides

    Ya I really like the fiberglass fenders better! Only way I would do it would be to do front and back. Just not sure who all makes them and what to do with paint.

    Those actually look really decent! Nice find Brian. You know what brand they are and if they make them for a gen 2?

    Personal preference, and I am partial to pocket style flares. As a matter of fact, I like them so much that I got the wheels and tires to match them. But in order to do that, I had to get a lift first. So fender flares turned out to be a very expensive mod to date, haha.

    But whatever you get, color matching looks much better, especially on a silver truck, imo.

    I put plastic flares on from a company called Spyder I found on eBay for $150, they are textured and I like black, body color looks nice but not rugged enough for me

    I do not. Just remembered seeing them on that post. Go through the links on there and I think someone says.

    Most likely not with the body style change
