    I have a 2005 Impulse Red Tacoma and the Fender Flares are fading to orange. First question is, does anyone know if I could fix this? Would a paint shop be able to match my trucks paint since it might be faded?
    Secondly, does anyone have photos of black fender flares on an Impulse Red Tacoma?

    The black ones on red trucks looks badass. There are some pics around but are in random other topic threads. I'll try to find one that I just saw the other day...........

    Here's one. Not sure if it's barcelona or impulse but doesn't matter because black on either red looks good IMO............

    I love the black flares on our trucks. Easy to maintain, looks great, paint won't chip. I still don't understand why they paint the 4x4 ones.
    Looks are for bros; I want functional awesomeness.

    Thanks. Im still thinking about going to Bushwacker Black flares but not sure if i want to spend the $ on them. If i do that then i will definitly replace the bumper with a black steel one. What do you think?

    Many do not realize there is a TSB for the shitty paint job on the fender flares with our Tacomas. I had mine re painted shortly after it was delivered, and the finish of the flares after almost looked better then the factory fenders! Your out of warranty now, but if your paint is in good condition, any good body shop could repaint your flares to match...

    4x4's come w black plastic ones too.

    I like the looks but on my truck I'd rather have the painted to match ones myself. Doing back to black after every wash is really annoying.

    Red w black does look badass though.

    My fear is right around the time I'm done paying off my truck all of its fenders will by chalky white and look like s*** :(
