Only bad thing about the BW is that you lose your mud flaps. Either way I would go for the BWs.

Sounds sweet if they make an extended piece down to the bumper like factory.

Does the Bushwackers usually come with texture surface or smooth so I can get it paint match?

HA. Subtle is for those who are not loud I do like the idea of an extension though.

EGR makes similar fender flares that goes all the way down to the chrome. Moreover, they allow you to keep your mud flaps.

One disadvantage of EGR is this: if you ever want to install a heavy duty bumper in the front, you will have to cut the fender flares a bit to accommodate the bumper. Bushwacker fender flares could be used without modification for most heavy-duty bumpers.

It might be cheaper to buy them already painted. Typically, to have them painted, most shops charge around $300 to $400 (in addition to $400 - $500 for the flares.

Here is the link for silver sky metallic painted flares.

I can't attest to the quality of the painting. Me? I bought flares from SVcutoms and had it locally painted.

I'm in Va. and I've never seen the price to paint over $200. I recently got 2 sets of bw's painted for $100 a set. I called auto anything for mine. Was able to talk them down to around $340ish. They have discounts available to give you just gotta ask.

I realized that by the time I finished with these painted will probably cost over $800 which is a little pricey for just 4 plastic pieces. I'm trying to locate anyone who have grey metallic paint match and item for less than $600 or so. I just can't convince myself spending that kind of money on something cost that much with painting.

Anyone know a good site will paint match and product for a good deal with excellent paint job?

I meant all the way down extending on top of the Chrome to the bottom of the Chrome . Two pieces. I don't like how the flare just sticks out it should taper down the Chrome part of the bumper for a more finished look. That's just me though
