    Do you have them yet? I just got mine, the black is a very matte color and it scratches really easily. My original plan was to leave them, but I am going to paint them because of the odd color.

    I personally like how darker fenders look on silver trucks, but there are some pics here with color mathced silver bushwackers. The pics should be easy to find.

    bushwacker will paint match them for you if you give them the paint code on the inside of your door.

    Are these Bushwacker Flares that much wider than our stock flares? They don't look it.

    i got lucky and found a guy on ebay selling his for 200 brand new painted silver.



    I just converted them all to HID 2 weekends ago. I used the regular 55w offroad lights a few times on some mud trails, but they werent bright enough. my headlights and fogs were brighter since i had the 8000k hids. Now that i have all these 6000k hids i am ready for some trails, these lights are damn sure bright as hell, they really turn night into day! i havent checked the volts with all of them on, just checked the amps that each pair of lights used.

    yeah, i had just my headlights and fogs converted, and just had some regular 55w off road lights on top for extra light, but i couldnt stand some of my lights blueish white and the other lights yellow, so i went ahead and just converted all of em. definitely enough light!
