It would look good, but from experience, don't mess with the fender flares. once they come off, they will never go on the same way. They are a PITA and once you paint them you will end up having to do it several times (they chip easy due to rocks and such)

Believe me...the pic I posted IS actual LINE-X and that pic is over 3 years old. Remember...i'm almost in OG status. lol.

Looks like an unpainted bumper? ok...well...you are right...its a COATED bumper and flares. ok...guess my bumpers and flares aren't painted then huh?

I thought about having the F150 done like that. Bumpers, rockers and fenders in dark grey line-x. Until they quoted me $780 just with the rockers and bumpers. They wanted an extra $150 for the fender flares. I felt like slapping them. lol

Yeah, it's unbelievable. They must think that stuff is made of gold.
Don't get me wrong, line-x is great stuff! But I still cannot believe the price they ask.
