Those look nice -- but don't go with the wheels. The wheels are too "street"-ish.

Very interesting too bad they won't come painted, but will definitely follow these

Hmmm I dunno, it kinda made it look like a big ford escape... but again, someone mentioned the wheels, maybe that's it.

Well I'm glad that bushwacker is offering WK2 aftermarket support, but I'm just not feelin the overall look. Maybe it is the wheels though.

That does look nice in white, I think. What are the brand of those wheels/tires?

Too much chrome and it needs different wheels. Those flares on an altitude would likely look great.

Chrome or no chrome, covering the OEM dark fender trim looks good. Certainly not an off road look painted up like that. Those wheel look like they've come of a Escalade or Tahoe. The centers cover the wheel nuts nicely, if you like that look.

Hmm... I think they may look sharp on the setup i have now but not sure if it's worth it. I need to see them on a more rugged looking setup not a street looking setup like in the pick.

I've never been a fan of Bushwacker pocket flares on any vehicle.

Loose the wheels, and most/all the chrome bling and maybe. Picture the same flares on a the forthcoming Trailhawk……maybe.

am I the only one who likes chrome?

When I was broke and trying to get started in my career, I drove old POS cars with no chrome (because it all fell off at some point in it's life). I guess I went through the debadging and dechroming phase already, although mine was not on purpose. My FORD badge on my 88 ranger fell off because the rust hole in the tailgate finally let go.

I like the chrome on my Laredo X and actually like the badges on it. I would never add the HEMI badge or anything else, but do like what it came with.
