I've got a dilemma I was hoping you guys could help me with. I'm stuck on deciding whether or not to go with the 01+ rounded fender flares on my 97... do you think they would look better than the 2000 and below flares? The older ones arent as rounded and are actually textured whereas the newer ones are smooth...

Help!!!

The 01+ are also textured based on which ones you get.

If you get ones for a FX4 they will be textured if you get ones for a EDGE they will be smooth and can be painted to match

I thought about the newer ones, but I was kinda afraid they would just look like Bushwacker flares on my truck...

Stl, I totally forgot there were two seperate ones... The ones I would go with would be the Edge Flares..

I like my edge ones on my edge but I thought the FX4 ones were the ones where it looks like the bolts are in it... maybe im thinking completly wrong... hehe... Edge just has all the best features... flares, powerdome hood, honeycomb grill, front valance... all the goods! haha, this is coming from an Edge owner though!

Haha.. I do too! I just dont like how far they stick out... not on a Ranger atleast...

I guess the 07+ ones wouldnt stick out too far... maybe I can try and use photoshop and see what it would look like...

You just have to do what you want and something unique to you... every truck needs a theme and a plan, once you make that plan you have to stick to it and make it great...how much longer will it be until we can see it.

yeah, the bumper is already off an 03 and I would be keeping it... Maybe while I take the core support off, I can throw in this 5.0 I have sitting around... wishful thinking... LOL
