Black?

I was thinking of doing something in my price range (haha)

Yay or Nay
for
black fender flares and front/rear bumpers?

I wanted to do it like this:
"its a spray on bedliner that i picked up from kragens.. i used about 4 cans of it to do that and it only cost me 40$. $8 for each can of the spray, then some masking tape"

Eh. It looks ok. Maybe it's because I don't like that model Ranger in white. I like they new 08's that are two tone.

Well it's pretty much a Ranger. I think it would look good. Are you going to do the sides of the truck or just the bumpers and flares?

Personally I would leave it red. The 08's have the bumper top body color to break up / tone down the black. If you do it do not use bed liner use black paint likeD owney said. I don't think you like what the bed liner looks like. It is somewhat dull textured and heavy looking.

Just my 2 cents though.

CBFranger's truck looks alright, but his flares are shaped differently than yours. I personally don't think it would look good with your flares. And besides, it looks so nice now...

I agree. I like his with the matching flares.

All my stuff is troy lee designs crap that got thrown on this truck as a "special edition"

Wasn't mine. At least not near Orlando. I had to cruise to Gainesville sunday.

There's a handfull of other red TL design trucks that I've seen around Florida. I cant wait for the day I get to take all of that off. First I need new interior pannels that match the color scheme but dont have the Troy Lee logo.

I say leave it as is, but if you do decide to do it do the flares too.

Yeah. The only thing is the off-roading fender flares I want look best in rustic black.
