    Anybody have pictures of their Silver Sky tundra with black or color matched fender flares?
    Been doing plenty of Google searches but haven't had much luck. I'm in the market for flares and debating on ordering black/color matched but just can't make up my mind.

    Hi Gilbert,

    I guess to say it would all depend. I have seen both and depends on the truck. My wife wants me to get flares but my truck is white. I have black door handles and mirrors. I would go with black for my situation.

    Can you post a pic of your truck? Side and front?

    Check out this post...

    I'm thinking about getting my black flares color matched at some point. I think in your case silver on silver would look good. Nothing wrong with black though.

    Mines not silver, but I went with the black ones to contrast with the other blacks stuff. I think it goes well with chrome and other black items.

    I'm on that thread, just looking specifically for pics with flares.
    I'm on that thread but I was just looking for pics specifically with flares. I already blacked out the emblems. Probably keeping the chrome grill for now.

    Really depends on your personal preference. Here are the links to those on our site:

    Pocket Style
    OE Style

    We also do the handles, mirror caps, and grilles. Depending on the theme that you decide to go with, it can really bring the vehicle together and make it your own.

    on our Sky Silver thread, there are a few rides in there with flares ... I believe 1 with black and 2 with silver.

    just like some others have said ... it's a personal taste type of thing. If I add some to my truck, I'm leaning towards silver. I feeling black looks more off road and silver looks more for the street.

    Once you black out windows with tint I think it would go good just matte black and rivets, my .02

    Honestly Gilbert, I could be convinced either way. You have enough black to add to the accent. But looking at Wes's truck(TTU19), I like that too.

    Flip a coin! Good luck silver is a great color and had the dealer had a silver SR5 with OffRoad pkg, I would have gone with that one myself!

    Hmm I'd say black just because it would make it pop some due to your black wheels.

    Orrrrrr you could try color matched with black rivets or visa versa. That might look good!

    Beautiful! This kind of hits on what I said ... With this lift the black flares looks perfect (looks more off-road)
    Meanwhile Wes's truck looks perfect with painted flares with his current OEM suspension (looking more street/recreational). Since I spend nearly all of my time on the street and will more than likely only go with a front end level I'm leaning more towards painted flares.

    At work now but I do on my laptop at home. The truck is a 2wd, has a Maxtrac 3.5" spindle lift with Fat Bob's coilovers. I set it to 2.5" for a total of 6" up front and 4" in the rear. Tires are 35-12.5-20's.

    Only a problem because we'd like to see pictures of your Tundra.
