wow thank you guys very much. I think I am going to space the rear tires out to match the front tires tho, becuase i dont want the flares to bury the big tire to much in the rear. Does anyone know how wheel spacers work for the rear?

i dont know that i would use them just cause its just one more component to fail. they fall in the same line as putting lift blocks on the front of a truck. you might see how much it would be for a shop to fix the rust......they make some flares that barely stick out from the body. i dont know if you want like bushwackers but thers others that dont flare out so much. but if you have flares on a truck i think it looks alright with the rear tires sunk, because thats the look that they are made for. and the really help keap mud from your body.

okay i dig where your coming from. Here is a pic where Im getting an idea why these flares may look good, they do a good job of adding a sporty look to the truck because they have good contour to them. I had got just that one side quotes and they want $500 bucks because they would need to repaint the whole bedside if I wanted it to come out good. And this is coming from a shop that did all the body work for me, so I couldnt imagine what i would get for a quote elsewhere.

ya that truck looks good. i would look for the lower profile ones myself. also the tires on that truck look to be like 13.5-14 or something so there a little wider than yours. but i stil think yours would look great with one slike that on it. i dont like the bushwacker style personally cause they stick out like 3" or more. i think jcwhitney has some just like the truck above. yea 500 a side is a little steep i can see why you want flares.

What he said ^^^ they are called street flairs. Slim, low profile. Stick out maybe a half inch, yet cover the whole "flair" on the wheel well

Looks great, not too much rim and still plenty of sidewall. I like those fender flares, wouldn't mind getting some for my truck. You still plan on regearing your axles to get some of your go power back?

Yes, either 4.10 or 4.56 are def in order, just havent made up my mind if i want to be able to sacrifice some of my top end or not. In terms of the fender flares, lol, those Xenon's showed up today and my god they were wayyyy to bigggg! They looked awful. Those are truly for a MONSTER TRUCK! I will def me examining to the bushwackers.

DAMN nice truck man...personally i think big flares with the tires sunk in looks bad, if you have wide tires that stick out as far of further then the fender flares it looks mean like that red truck, it makes the truck look beefy, where with the wheels sunk it it gives it that grandpa look....IMO the tires MUST stick out as far or further than the flares or stock fenders, it makes the truck look meaner and beefier...like my little f150, with that visor and the 36x12.50s it will look huge!
