Hey, I'm debating putting fender flares on my truck because with the 35s under it, it just loves to kick dirt and water up all over the sides. So if anybody has any pics, throw them up and that'd be awesome.

bush wacker oem style look really cool. the only bad thing is that you have to have them painted unless you dont mind the flat black look

That truck is sick, are those the OEMs or the extend-a-fender flares?

This is a great topic. I am new to the forum (newly purchased diesel) and I have been trying to figure out which way to go - mud flaps or fender flares or both. I have an 08 Ram 2500 SWB 4X4 and I'd like to mount fender flares as long as I don't have to do too much (such as move the Cummins logo). It is very difficult to tell which products require this and which ones don't. I certainly like the idea and the look. The other consideration: how far should the flares stick out over the body? is 3/4 inch enough? is 1 1/2 inches better? I'd like to get them for protecting the paint more than anything else. I eventually plan to add a lift kit and change the factory 17inch rims to probably 20 inch (which I really liked on my old 1500 Ram) and size tires accordingly (but I will always be using on-off road tires and not strictly off road tires). On the other hand, mud flaps are easy to install and work pretty well at protection. I am curios if anyone here has any thoughts...

Thanks again for a great topic.

On the new trucks, get the bushwacker pocket flares, they look really sharp, then match 'em up with a good quality mud flap, like airhawk. You will have to move the cummins C logo from the front fender, but its not really a big deal, just use a heat gun and peel it off slowly with some fishing line or use a rubber scraper.

Damn, your truck has to be one of my favorites on this site Smokin Diesel, seriously one sharp rig. I'd recommend some towing mirrors though, thats about the only thing I'd change on the truck.

True enough, I don't tow with mine at the moment, but I also love the large mirrors for seeing when driving. And I like the look.
