Fender Flares

I am getting tired of rocks hitting the side of my truck. I am not a big fan of the looks of mud flaps. I am thinking about the Bushwacker Extend a Fender Flares. How do they fit? What do they look like on? Do they protect from rocks and mud? Pics would be appericated!!!!!
Thanks for the help.

They really don't do a whole lot for rocks and mud compared to flaps to be honest

Heavy duty king, What is the offset of the wheels that you have? I am nervous with my zero offset wheels they might not look good. They stick out about 2 inches now.

Those wheels had 4.5 off set, I have since gone back to factory alum 20" wheels since the XDs were only 18" and I had them from my last truck I wanted to give them a shot. I like the flares because I hate mud on the side of the truck, I also run flaps as well.

You should really put mudflaps on your truck, unless you want to continuously kick up rocks onto other cars.

I am guessing you mean 4.5" backspacing?

Yes, 4.5", they were on my 06 for a short time. The flares don't do too much for rocks going straight back but they do help keep the kick up down.
