    Is that gloss black? Maybe if it was flat black instead it would look a bit better...

    I woulda done BLHM without painting the flares. Not a big fan of painted flares, but to each their own.

    I'll take neither? haha

    I was just criticizing the fact that he was saying 'get some input'...

    Yet made the decision of a winner and got the 'stache, lol

    It looks like he's going for a black and blue theme, the plastidip thing is a good idea I've done it to my truck before then seen I didn't like it and peeled it off no harm no foul... But to each his own...

    Exactly. Everything on the exterior of my truck is either black or white. Nothing else. And I've contemplated blacking out the fenders, but I've seen them on the base models driving around, and it really is not my style.
