Paint or vinyl?

I slapped the fenders on last week to see how they fit...should I paint the fenders to match the rest of the truck or do a flat black vinyl over and flat black vinyl on the rear fenders (not the bedsides) as well?

The flat black would blend with the tires and the bumpers, plus the fenders will likely get scratched up anyway and doing vinyl will cost less than paint. Not sure if it would be enough contrast or just look plain ghetto...

This is how it looks right now, LT kit's getting installed in the next couple weeks so I'll only have it looking goofy for a bit longer:

they are just going to get chipped and scratched anyways... go with whatever is cheapest.

you could rattle can them a gloss black... i think the flat black vinyl and gloss paint of the rest of the truck would look weird
