    recently purchased ballistic jesters for winter-use here in illinois:eek: whilst waiting for the jesters, installed bushwacker fender flares with the ss dummy bolts (which i personally like). however perhaps the addition of the jesters silver, dummy bolts may be too far? so, do i keep the jesters stock (silver buttons) or paint 'em black? first pic is stock and 2nd is w/o the buttons installed which would be fairly similar to painting them:)

    I say keep them stock. It draws the eye to the wheel more.

    Im getting there......
    paint them black looks cool and unique. I like the ss dummy bolts as well but I think your truck might look better if you painted the flares in a gloss black to match the truck.....just my $.02

    i say paint those fenders to match the paint and get shiny silver bolts in them to match the bolts in the rims or black out the fender bolts and match the fenders with the truck and keep the bolts off the rim making it all blacked out look highlighted with red but it'll look good whatever u pik, nice truck!

    thanks for the input all. probably gonna paint 'em black. as for the flares, did think long about painting them but not going for an all-black look so the contrast in the finish between the flares and the body is nice. anyway, just ran across these for the jesters---check the pic. what do you all think? spikedjesters.jpg

    used rustoleums universal spray paint, in gloss black. while not color-matched per se, it is EXTREMELY close with any difference unnoticeable :D http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=178
