    Anyone selling any color matched fender flares 01-04? Hard to come by. I don’t like the red with black fender flares, looks dumb IMO

    Why not have your painted to match? Even if you find some already painted in color of your truck they most likely are not going to match.

    I didn’t know you could paint the black ones. Not sure how well a gloss paint would stick to plastic

    The oem ones are plastic as well. Most new cars have plastic bumpers with gloss paint.

    Thanks for the info. I’ll paint them myself. I’ll just have to find a place where I can get Radiant Red Toyota paint. Toyota will charge too much for the paint.

    Any auto paint shop can mix the paint for you, some will even put it in spray cans. Although the spray cans might get expensive.
    They will usually add a flex additive to the paint for painting plastic.
