    Just installed Bushwacker Pocket Style Fender Flares. Left them black for now, just want opinions if I should color match them or leave them black. I'm up in the air about it. I'll try to put the pic on here, but don't know if it will work, still new at this. If the pick is not here I uploaded it to the gallery. Thank

    You attach them with the factory holes for the most part. the pockets are just for looks. The kit doesn't come with two way tape and I dont have it on there, but i think i might put the two way tape on anyway

    thats a tough one.. the black looks hella beefy, but if you paint them it will look classy. know what i mean?
    So where did you get them at? i was thinking of putting them on my truck and dont really know how much they cost or where to pick them up at?

    Personally, I think they are way overpriced for some half circles of plastic, but they do toughen up a truck's appearance quite well.
