Thanks! the flares are the 6" "value line" flares from Quadratrac and they're not painted. I bought my own stainless screws and aluminum caps (they come with cheap black plastic caps). I live in Seattle (not a lot of sun) and I don't really drive the Jeep all that much, so they still look like new after a year and a half. If they start to fade, I'll probably paint them with plasti-coat. They're half the price of Bushwackers, and I can't tell the difference betwen them, side-by-side.
