Fender Flares: Color Matched or Black

Real important stuff here, fellas.

My plan is to have a color matched 95-97 grille surround (with black grille interior).

Eventually get either an 01-04 bumper/valence or a 95-97, and color match the upper part (normally chrome) and blacken the lower part.

And I'm definitely painting my wheels flat black.

I also plan on getting sliders, black obviously, which would break up the color matched flares/body

So I am wondering if I should restore my fenders to black or go with color matched

Both of these photos have had some photoshop done to them, so use your imagination

Color matched:

That's a tough one, but I THINK I'm leaning more toward color matched

Funny, most of the comments say black, but the poll numbers definitely say color match. And as for me, color match. I think with the wheels and sliders done it black, it'll look sexy.

That's how I'm leaning.

I'm also probably going to do an all black bumper too.

I keep passing a 97 Sunfire Red tacoma that has a sick custom front and rear bumper, color matched flares and black wheels...

Looks so mint.

I always want to flag him down and talk to him about his rig (perfect lift and stance IMO). You can tell he put a lot of thought, and probably money, into his truck

I voted color matched, but after seeing your new grill and bumpers I think doing the flares in the same black will tie everything together nicely. Thats what I did with my MGM and I like it.
