Pre-Runner Fenders Back On Or Not?

Well I have a friend that is starting a small body shop and he will paint and fix my bumper and everything for cheap. He asked if I still had those fenders and of course I do.

So my question. You think I should have them painted and put back on or leave it stock?

I say yes if you paint them, which I'm sure your planning to do.

full lifted trucks and fenders look bad, exact opposite of what there for. allowing travel with minimal lift so u keep the center of gravity low and haul across the desert.

Keep them on, it ties the back in with the front, and looks really good.

If you have the suspension travel to actually make them useful, then put them on, if not then sell em to someone and make some cash off of them.

After going out and looking at my truck I dont think I am going to do it. But I am getting the tailgate shaved with a relocation handle on the inside and maybe getting the ranger emblems shaved off too.
